The Mighty Widow and the Mite

Catholic Charities needs your pennies, nickles and dimes. We humbly see the richness in the smaller offers of financial assistance because when the poor support each other, there is solidarity among all. Give what you can so that those who are afflicted can have hope. Click here to make an ONLINE DONATION.

We try to use 99 cents on the dollar of your offering to go directly to those in need. Remember the value of the “widow’s mite”… Luke 21: 1-4 respiciens autem vidit eos qui mittebant munera sua in gazofilacium divites vidit autem et quandam viduam pauperculam mittentem aera minuta duo et dixit vere dico vobis quia vidua haec pauper plus quam omnes misit nam omnes hii ex abundanti sibi miserunt in munera Dei haec autem ex eo quod deest illi omnem victum suum quem habuit misit. (And he looked up, and saw the rich men that were casting their gifts into the treasury. And he saw a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, This poor widow cast in more than they all: for all these did of their superfluity cast in unto the gifts; but she of her want did cast in all the living that she had.) Her mite became her “might”.

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.”

    In late July, my family and I had you come and pick up items at our home. The address was 4422 Levante. We were moving and had many items that we wanted to give to your organization. Unfortunately, during our move I have misplaced the donation claim slip I was given when you collected the items. My husband is in the Air Force and it would help us out greatly if we could be sent a copy of the donation slip. Please feel free to email or call me at 7192326282 to discuss the donation if you need any more information about it. Thank you so much for your help and for all you do for the community.
