Reading of the first book of Kings (1 R 17, 7-16)

In those days, by the order of the prophet Elijah, after a while there would not be a drop of rain all over the country, and the torrent in which the prophet was drinking eventually dried up.
Then the word of the Lord came to him: “Arise, go to Sarepta, in the land of Sidon;
you will live there; There is a widow there that I have entrusted to feed you. The prophet Elijah left for Sarepta, and reached the entrance to the city. A widow was gathering wood; he called her and said to her, “Will you take a little water with my jug to drink? She went to get it. He said to him again, “Bring me a piece of bread too.” She replied:
“I swear by the life of the Lord your God: I have no bread. I only have, in a jar, a handful of flour, and a little oil in a vase. I pick up two pieces of wood, I go back to prepare for myself and for my son what we have left. We will eat it,
and then we die. Elijah said to him, “Don’t be afraid, come on, do what you said.
But first cook me a little cake and bring it to me, then you’ll make some for yourself and your son. For thus says the Lord, God of Israel: Jar of flour will not run out, vase of oil will not be emptied, until the day when the Lord gives rain to water the earth. The woman went to do what Elijah had asked her to do, and for a long time the prophet, herself and her son had to eat. And the jar of flour did not run out, and the vase of oil did not empty, as the Lord had announced through Elijah.
