The predators of the poor!
Sunday November 7 2021 XXXII of the T.O.

Dear brothers and sisters, Jesus, in the passage from the Gospel of Mark we're going to listen next Sunday, November 7, warns us to be careful about the hypocritical attitude of those people who hide behind religious practices to annul, on the one hand, the commandment of God and on the other hand, to foster their own interests, the longing for worldly power, wealth and success ... How much admiration Jesus feels, instead, for humble people, full of love for God and compassion for others , dedicated to doing good, like the poor widow who throws two coins into the temple treasury, that is, everything she had to live on. Let's take the example of the many evangelical figures praised by Jesus for their capacity to “get out of themselves" out of love for God and neighbor. How beautiful it would be, dear brothers and sisters, if Jesus could also say of us: How great is your faith!
