Mark 12:38-44 (Gospel)

38
Then He said to them in His teaching, “Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces,
39
the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts,
40
who devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation.
41
Now Jesus sat opposite the treasury and saw how the people put money into the treasury. And many who were rich put in much.
42
Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans.
43
So He called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury;
44
for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.
