The Presentation
of the Blessed Virgin Mary
(a memorial)

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word

Revelation 14:1-3, 4b-5
Psalm 24:1bc-2, 3-4ab, 5-6
Luke 24:42a, 44

A reflection on today's Sacred Scripture:

"but she, from her poverty,
has offered her whole livelihood."

(Luke 21:4)

How much is given,
is not nearly so important than
how it is given!

If you do not have much, you cannot give much--but from the time of Abel until today, the amount has never been a great matter. What has always mattered is the selflessness, the ability to step out of our own fears and problems and to enter those of others and to seek to make them less burdensome. And when we help to lift the burdens of others we discover that we are lifted-up ourselves, out of our poverty of heart and spirit, and into the Kingdom of Heaven!
