VATICAN — In his Nov. 11 Angelus address, Pope Benedict XVI reflected on Sunday’s Mass readings featuring two poor widows who provide timeless models of faith and charity.

“In today’s Gospel, the poor widow gives everything she possesses to the Temple,” the Pope said, as he addressed the crowd from the papal apartments overlooking St. Peter’s Square.

“May her unconditional offering inspire us to rely on God alone, while attributing to everything else its due place and proper worth,” he said.

In that Gospel reading, from Mark 12:38-44, the poor widow’s generosity at the Temple collection is contrasted with the great offerings of the rich. Whereas the rich gave from their excess, the widow gave from her poverty.
