Gospel Reflection: Mark 12: 38-44


Here’s a reflection on Mark 12:38-41.  It was written by Katherine Hawker.

Two Copper Coins
(inspired by Mark 12:38-41)

Then a poor widow came and dropped in two copper coins. Mark 12:42

two copper coins
echo beyond time
abundance yielded drought,
poverty bloomed to generosity

two copper coins
echo beyond time
the need to protect
confronts the call to relinquish

two copper coins
echo beyond time
redefining worth
as a place in the heart

two copper coins
echo beyond time
