her whole livelihood

“I tell you truly, this poor widow put in more than all the rest; for those others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood.” (LK 21: 3-4) 

It sounds exactly like our “gift of self”— not many or much, not a lot of, but “her whole livelihood.” The true “gift of self,” is free, creative, and joyful and always seeks for an opportunity to give all love to our spouses. 

“Stay awake! For you do not know when the Son of Man will come.” (Gospel Acclamation)
