How is $10 more than $100? We can’t see how this can be, but God always sees deeper than us. Today’s Gospel is an example of this. The rich offer large sums, but the widow who is poor offers more than them. We must go beyond what we can see in order to get at the truth which God shares. Yes, God calls us to support the work of the Church with money, but money is not the final result God is seeking. Regarding the small sum the widow offers, Jesus says, “She gave her whole livelihood.” The money was only a symbol of what was taking place in her heart. She was offering her whole being to God.
