Saturday, June 5, 2010: (St. Boniface)
Jesus said: “My people, when you hear the Gospel of the widow’s mite when she gave to the temple all that she had to live on, it gives everyone pause to think of what you do in charity for others. As you see in your own life, it is your deeper concerns with your larger donations and your willingness to donate your hard work that mean more to you. When you give a few dollars to a church or a foreign mission, these are just token donations with little heart in it. At other times you may help people at your food shelves or even some hard work for your family members where your heart is really a part of your giving. It is these situations that will truly gain you more treasure in heaven than your token donations from your excess wealth. If you truly want to be sincere in your charity, then it is your heartfelt investments of time and money that will have more meaning in your life. This is the true love for each other that should be driving the intentions of your actions.”
