Weekly Message

Is My Mite Mighty for My Almighty? 

Dear brothers and sisters,

 A man in a church made a promise to tithe ten percent of his income every year. The man tithed $1000 the year he earned $10,000; $10,000 the year he earned $100,000; and $100,000 the year he earned one million. But the year he earned $ 6,000,000  he just could not bring himself to write out that check for $600,000 to the Church.  Walking into the pastor’s office saying, "This tithing business has to stop. It was fine when my tithe was $1000, but I just cannot afford $600,000. You’ve got to do something, Reverend!" The pastor knelt on the floor and prayed silently for a long time. The man said, "What are you doing?“ The pastor said, "I am praying for God to reduce your income back to the level where $1000 will be your tithe!"

Studies on ‘giving trends’ consistently find that those in the lower income brackets tend to be the most generous in charitable giving by percentage of income. A rich man who is generous in charity can certainly be magnanimous in spirit. He indeed must be “poor in spirit.” The widow, singularly praised by Our Lord for her magnanimity, was mightier than all in her total detachment and confidence in God’s providence. She believed that God would change her two mites into a million blessings! ‘God weighs not the substance, but the conscience of the offerers.’

 What made the two widow’s gift superbly human and splendidly sacred was that they gave all that they had; and that it resembled Jesus offering himself on the cross: Everything - “gift” and “risk.” They are anonymous on earth while in heaven their names are written in the Book of Life. They won the Heart of God with a cup of water, a bit of bread and two mites. Let the Mighty God be pleased to bless your mites.                                  

 Msgr. Xavier
