GOD’S WORD TODAY
Saint Mark’s Gospel has been a rich source of challenge and inspiration for us as we have moved
through these latter Sundays of Ordinary Time. Today we hear the familiar story of the poor widow
who placed her two small coins in the temple treasury. She did not give from her surplus, simply
because she had no surplus. The Lord tells us that she gave from her poverty. In the first reading the
widow of Zarephath gives Elijah her final store of food. She admits that without this food, she and her
son will soon die. Yet her generosity and selflessness result in a jug of oil that never runs dry and a
jar of flour that never goes empty. May these two women inspire us to respond to the Lord with
generous hearts. From Saint Margaret Sunday Missal, copyright © J. S. Paluch Company

GIVING ALL
Trusting widows play a significant role in this
weekend’s readings. At the point of poverty, when
giving even the smallest amount of what they had
could imperil their health and well-being, they trusted
God and gave anyway. What is important about their
giving is not what or how much they gave, but how
they gave it. Without selfishness, they gave to help
others. Their giving was from the heart, with little
hope or intention of receiving any sort of reward or
recognition for their generosity. The monetary values
of the widows’ gifts were small, but their value measured in the Kingdom was priceless.
There is a significant similarity between their gift
and the gift Jesus gave each of us. The widows
offered their lives for God. Jesus offered his life for
us. © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

El Señor siempre es fiel a su
palabra, y es quien hace justicia
al oprimido;
él proporciona pan a los
hambrientos.
LECTURAS DE HOY
Primera lectura — El profeta Elías pide a una
viuda pobre que le dé algo de beber y un poco de
pan. Cuando ella compartió, su escasez fue saciada
(1 Reyes 17:10-16).
Salmo — El Señor siempre es fiel a su palabra
(Psalm 146 [145]).
Segunda lectura — Cristo se sacrificó una sola vez
para borrar todos los pecados de los hombres
(Hebreos 9:24-28).
Evangelio — El óbolo de la viuda de unos cuántos
centavos es mucho más grande que todas las otras
donaciones porque en su pobreza, ha dado todo lo
que tenía para vivir (Marcos 12:38-44 [41-44]).
ENTREGA TOTAL
Las viudas confiadas juegan un importante papel
en las lecturas de esta semana. Aunque eran pobres
y el dar aún algo bien pequeño podría poner en
peligro su salud y bienestar, confiaban en Dios y
daban lo que podían. Lo que es importante sobre sus
donativos no es la cantidad que daban, sino que
daban algo. Sin egoísmo, daban para ayudar a otros.
Su dar salía del corazón, con poca esperanza o intención de recibir algún premio o reconocimiento por
su generosidad. El valor monetario de los dones de
las viudas eran pequeños, pero su valor en la medida
del Reino era inestimable.
Hay una gran semejanza entre su regalo y el
regalo que Jesús ha dado a cada uno de nosotros.
Las viudas ofrecieron sus vidas a Dios. Jesús ofreció
su vida por nosotros. © Copyright, J. S. Paluch Co.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Entre las comunidades hispanas aún existe el
concepto de que a la Iglesia se le da limosna. Esta
es una horrible costumbre, puesto que ni a Dios ni a
la Iglesia se le debe la limosna, sino el diezmo y no
necesariamente económico, esto es, también debemos considerar tiempo y talento. Este diezmo se le
da a Dios por medio del mantenimiento de la Iglesia, la ayuda directa a los necesitados, la generosidad con agencias de caridad, etcétera. No importa a
quién o cómo damos el diezmo que debemos a Dios,
lo que importa es reconocer que no es limosna, es
decir, dar de lo que nos sobra. Es dar desde el corazón, compartir, como la viuda del Evangelio, lo que
tenemos para vivir.
No obstante, muchos somos tacaños con el Señor. En lugar de dar con generosidad, damos poco o
damos para hacernos notar. Damos de lo que nos
sobra, si acaso damos. Tenemos mucho que aprender de la viuda que se nos presenta en Marcos
12:41-44. Ella, siendo pobre y necesitada, aún así
quiso compartir con Dios de lo que tenía para vivir.
Casi siempre los pobres son más generosos que los
ricos o la clase media. Son ellos quienes nos muestran la generosidad de Dios y nos desafían a hacer
lo mismo, a fin de erradicar la pobreza.
—Fray Gilberto Cavazos-Glz, OFM, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co
HAZ CUALQUIER COSA
Iré a cualquier lugar y haré cualquier cosa para
convidar el amor de Jesús a quienes no lo conocen o
a quienes ya se olvidaron de él.
—Santa Francisca Xavier Cabrini
SE NECESITA MÁS QUE ESO
Asistir a la iglesia no te hace cristiano, al igual
que ir a un garaje no te hace un automóvil.
—Billy Sunday
Month of the Souls in Purgatory
The month of November is dedicated
to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. The Church
commemorates all her faithful children who
have departed from this life, but have not yet
attained the joys of heaven. St. Paul warns us
that we must not be ignorant concerning the
dead, nor sorrowful, "even as others who
have no hope ... For the Lord Himself shall
come down from heaven ... and the dead
who are in Christ shall rise.
The Church has always taught us to
pray for those who have gone into eternity.
Even in the Old Testament prayers and alms
were offered for the souls of the dead by
those who thought "well and religiously concerning the resurrection." It was believed that
"they who had fallen asleep with godliness
had great grace laid up for them" and that "it
is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to
pray for the dead, that they may be loosed
from sins." We know that a defiled soul
cannot enter into heaven.
Excerpted from Liturgical Meditations, The
Sisters of St. Dominic—ww.catholicculture.org
Eternal Rest
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let
perpetual light shine upon them. May the
souls of the faithful departed, through the
mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
God our Father,
Your power brings us to birth,
Your providence guides our lives,
and by Your command we return to dust.
Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
their lives change but do not end.
I pray in hope for my family,
relatives and friends,
and for all the dead known to You alone.
In company with Christ,
Who died and now lives,
may they rejoice in Your kingdom,
where all our tears are wiped away.
Unite us together again in one family,
to sing Your praise forever and ever.
Amen.
