Memorial of The Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Infant Jesus, your love knows no bounds and you give without any limits. All that we have comes from you. May we give generously and freely in gratitude for all that you have given to us. Take our life and all that we possess – our gifts, talents, time and resources and use them as you see fit for your glory. We make this prayer through Infant Jesus. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 21:1-4)
A gift that is given with anger or for a show loses its value. But a gift given out of love, with a spirit of generosity and give up, is precious. The amount or size of the gift doesn't substance as much as the cost to the donor. The simple widow could have kept one of her coins, but in its place she hastily gave away all she had! Jesus praised someone who gave hardly a penny. How unimportant a sum? Because it was the whole thing she had, her whole living. What we have to offer may look very small and not value much, but if we put all we have at the Lord's foots, no matter how unimportant it may seem, then God can do with it and with us what is further than our reckoning. Do you give out of love and thankfulness for what God has already given to you? Sincere love doesn't calculate; it spends plentifully! Jesus drove this point home to his disciples while sitting in the temple and watching people offering their tithes. Jesus praised a poor widow who gave the least of coins in contrast with the rich who gave larger sums. How can someone in poverty give more than someone who has plenty means? Jesus' answer is very simple: love is more valuable than gold or wealth. Jesus’ teachings that real giving have to come from the heart.
