She has contributed all she had.

“Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood.” (MK 12: 33-34)

It is not only about supporting, sharing with others what we have, giving alms, and protecting the poor, but also a metaphor for our lives. We can give our lives totally to our spouses and children, and we can invest and invest more for our best relationship without worry what we will be able to offer tomorrow. When we live our lives fully and totally, focused on giving, we will always be refreshed because love, when given fully, come back more enriched, a hundred times more.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.” (Gospel Acclamation)
