Commentary on the Gospel of
The poor widow was the only one from among so many worshipers who made retribution to God as he deserves. She was the personification of those countless poor, who have practically nothing but somehow find a way to give part of the little they have. The humble person is capable of sacrificing part of his paid time to study or participate in common activities in order to help his companions. The small salary he loses is worth much more than the big salary that wealthy people are not willing to lose. God calls on the poor before anybody else, because only the poor give all that they have to live on.
