Gospel: Mt 5:13-16 - 
     You are the salt of the earth. But if salt has lost its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It has become useless. It can only be thrown away and people will trample on it.
     You are the light of the world. A city built on a mountain cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and covers it; instead, it is put on a lamp stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, your light must shine before others, so that they may see the good you do, and praise your Father in heaven.

Despite the severe famine, the widow of Zarephath offers Elijah the little flour she has left for her last meal with her son. Because of her generosity the Lord does not allow her jar to go empty until the famine has ended.
     Where lies the miracle? If a miracle involves the suspension of natural laws, then in the mysterious replenishment of the flour. But as the miraculous can also refer to the intensification of the natural, her capacity to sacrifice herself for another can be deemed a miracle - the perfection of the heart to give its utmost capacity.
