Always with hands cupped in the most vulnerable of positions…never grasping as though something is due, these reflections of Christ are many times our hour of His visitation. Let’s not miss it. For this reason, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Las Cruces reaches out its hands to give to them what you have given us.

The Mighty Widow and the Mite
Imagine, as John Lennon’s song would have us do. Imagine each penny tossed into a pond. Imagine the number of ponds. Then imagine the number of ponds in one town or city. Then imagine the number of villages, towns, and cities in a nation. Then imagine the number of people throwing those pennies away only to rust at the bottom of a false hope that such an action results in “good luck.” Rather give the “mite” or “two mites” as we see in the Gospel. Those two “mites” elevated the stature of blessing for the widow for eternity. So imagine what your “two pennies” or your $5 or your $10 can do. Your penny offered will sanctify your giving hand and elevate you in the eyes of God to be among the “mighty.” …doing “mighty deeds.”
