On this Christmas eve, let us pray for peace in our community, nation and world. I have witnessed violence up close and it is so harmful. It keeps reaching out affecting others. So let us pray that we can not use any violent actions or words that cause another to lose the peace of their hearts.
I am grateful to the people in my life. Today I especially think of all those who helped me and am grateful for life. Peace and all good!
My thought on the widow mite comes from a comment I heard years ago my a Benedictine priest. His thought was that the widow was a prefigure of Jesus. The widow gives all she had, and so would Jesus in a few days. He would give all that was his to give. So the widow is a Jesus type in that she gives all she has. She prepares all of us for what Jesus would do.
