In our Gospel today from Mark: 12:38-44, Jesus puts down those who are wealthy and do not share what they have. He explains that those who are flashy and care only about wealth and prestige will be punished. This has relevance for us in our times, in that we tend to look too highly upon those who are famous and wealthy. We should rather judge them by their actions, not by the power they have and what they own. Jesus additionally explains that the poor widow who put in only two small copper coins had given more than all the wealthy people who donated an abundance to the temple treasury. She had barely anything in the first place and still gave of herself.
Jesus speaks of the real issue with wealth being that it easily persuades people to overly emphasize material things and overly emphasize one’s self. If we are ever to become really wealthy, we need to not pamper ourselves, but instead, share it with those who have no way of ever obtaining it.
CHURCH HEATING Our Church heating is still out of action, and we now know, following investigation that the chimney flue is totally unusable. This will mean that for a further period we will be without the central heating. We will continue to use the electric heaters, so continue to wear warm clothing for Mass!
