Did you notice a longer or shorter Gospel reading this past weekend? In my last parish, the pastor preferred long versions whenever there was a choice. In my new parish, it’s up to each of our retired priests, as far as the Gospel is concerned.
Sit in the purple chair and render judgment on this weekend’s Gospel from Mark 12. Include the condemnation of the male Scribes in verse 38-40, or stick to the theme of poor widows who trust in God?
