Welcome to St Bride's

"She put in all she possessed." (Mark 12:44)

Jesus sees a poor widow giving money to the Temple funds, and he praises her generous heart. How are we going to respond to the generosity of God. Jesus gave of his all for love of humanity and in obedience to his Father. What is our response to  his sacrifice? Love, so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all.

Lord, teach us to be generous in your service and keep us guard against greed and corruption in our lives of faith. Amen.
