Tobit 12: 1, 5, 15, 20

12:1 Then Tobit called his son to him, and he said to him, “What are we able to give to this holy man, who accompanied you?”
12:5 And calling him, the father especially, and the son, they took him aside. And they began to petition him, so that he would deign to accept ownership of one half part of all things that they had brought.
12:15 For I am the Angel Raphael, one of seven, who stand before the Lord.”
12:20 Therefore, it is time that I return to him who sent me. But as for you, bless God, and describe all his wonders.”

Mark 12: 38- 44

12:38And he said to them in his doctrine: “Beware of the scribes, who prefer to walk in long robes and to be greeted in the marketplace,

12:39and to sit in the first chairs in the synagogues, and to have the first seats at feasts,

12:40who devour the houses of widows under the pretense of long prayers. These shall receive the more extensive judgment.”

12:41And Jesus, sitting opposite the offertory box, considered the way in which the crowd cast coins into the offertory, and that many of the wealthy cast in a great deal.

12:42But when one poor widow had arrived, she put in two small coins, which is a quarter.

12:43And calling together his disciples, he said to them: “Amen I say to you, that this poor widow has put in more than all those who contributed to the offertory.

12:44For they all gave from their abundance, yet truly, she gave from her scarcity, even all that she had, her entire living.”
