The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
on Monday of week 34 in Ordinary Time
Gospel – Luke 21:1-4
“but she from the little she had has put in all she had to live on”. So, what is this widow going to do? She goes out of the temple without anything. Here we can see the blessedness behind giving offerings. Offerings we give so that we can overcome our unnecessary fears of existence. You start trusting completely in the Lord. Not anymore in what we have in the pocket but in the Lord, we have in our heart. Moreover, it is important in the offerings, the will to give everything. The will to give totally and completely is the foundation to make the true offering.
