Thirty-second Sunday in Ordinary Time - Year B - 11th November 2018
Readings: 1 Kings 17:10-16; Hebrew 9:24-28; Mark 12:38-44
Haere mai e te whanau, Tena koutou katoa, a kia noho te Ariki ki a koutou.
Welcome, family, greetings to you all. May the Lord be with you.
What beautiful readings today. The contrast between the ”show-offs” and the humble widows is stark. Both widows give out of their need, not out of what is left over. In all likelihood they have spent their whole lives relying on God’s providence, teaching us, once again, the meaning of the maxim, “What we hold on to we lose anyway; what we give away is returned a hundredfold….”
We pray deep gratitude for all our benefactors, and especially during this month, for those whose names are written I the list of our Holy Souls..
With every blessing in Christ, Michael McCabe Parish Priest
Praise the Lord, O my soul.
