THIRTY-SECOND SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

November 7/8, 2009

FOOD FOR THE WEEK

 

Reading I                             1 Kings 17.10-16

Responsorial Psalm:             Praise the Lord, my soul!

Reading II                            Hebrews 9.24-28

Gospel:                                Mark 12.38-44

 

·         The big givers may see their name in lights; but for you, Lord, the big giver is the one who gives from the heart. You do not count the coins, but the generosity.

·         Yet I need some help in my generosity. The appeals are endless as we learn more of the world’s poverty. Perhaps the hardest thing for me to give is my time and energy.
