August 8, 2021 Stewardship Reflection, 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Get up and eat or the journey will be too much for you!” 1 KINGS 19:7
God knows that committing to a stewardship lifestyle is difficult. However, we were not designed to do it on our own, we need His help. Fortunately, God gave us the greatest gift of all, His son, Jesus. Through the gift of the Eucharist we join our sacrifice with the sacrifice of the Holy Mass and receive the strength and courage to be His joyful disciples.

8 de Agosto de 2021,19o Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

" Levántese y coma o el viaje será demasiado para usted!" 1 REYES 19: 7
Dios sabe que comprometerse con un estilo de vida de corresponsabilidad es difícil. Sin embargo, no fuimos diseñados para hacerlo por nosotros mismos, necesitamos Su ayuda. Afortunadamente, Dios nos dio el mayor regalo de todos, Su hijo, Jesús. A través del don de la Eucaristía juntamos nuestro sacrificio con el sacrificio de la Santa Misa y recibimos la fuerza y el coraje para ser Sus alegres discípulos.

August 15, 2021 Stewardship Reflection, The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

“And Mary said, “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.” Luke 1: 46
After Jesus, we look to Mary as our model of stewardship. Her entire life was lived in obedience to God's will. Just as the moon reflects the light of the sun, Mary reflects the light of Christ. Like Mary, we too are called to reflect Christ to the world. We do this by living grateful and generous lives. We do this by putting other's needs before our wants.

15 de agosto de 2021, La Asunción de la Bendecida Virgen María

"Y María dijo, Mi alma proclama la grandeza del Señor; mi espíritu se regocija en Dios mi salvador." LUCAS 1:46
Después de Jesús, miramos a María como nuestro modelo de corresponsabilidad. Su vida entera la vivió en obediencia de la voluntad de Dios. Así como la luna refleja la luz del sol, María refleja la luz de Cristo. Como María, nosotros también somos llamados a reflejar a Cristo al mundo. Lo hacemos viviendo una vida generosa y agradecida. Lo hacemos poniendo las necesidades de los demás antes que nuestros deseos.

August 22, 2021 Stewardship Reflection, 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time

“If it does not please you to serve the Lord, decide today whom you will serve…As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” JOSHUA 24:15
When we commit to serve the Lord, we must be willing to become a disciple in the work of the Lord. A disciple is a person who spends time in prayer every day, joyfully participates in charitable works and generously supports their local parish and Church mission. If we say we serve God, we must actually do something and not merely talk about it!

22 de agosto de 2021, Domingo 21o del Tiempo Ordinario

"Si no les place servir al Señor, decidan hoy a quien servirán...... En cuanto a mí y a mi familia, serviremos al Señor." JOSUÉ 24:15
Cuando nos comprometemos a servir al Señor, debemos estar dispuestos a transformarnos en discípulos en el trabajo del Señor. Un discípulo es una persona que pasa su tiempo en oración, participa alegremente en las obras de caridad, y apoya generosamente su parroquia y la misión de la Iglesia. ¡Si decimos servir al Dios, debemos actualmente hacer algo y no simplemente hablar acerca de eso!

August 29, 2021 Stewardship Reflection, 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Be doers of the word and not hearers only…” JAMES 1:22
It's easy to understand the definition of stewardship - living a grateful and generous life. The hard part is doing it! How do your actions reflect God's word? Do you share your time in prayer with God? Do you use your talent to help those in need? Are you generous with your financial resources? If not, what are you waiting for?

29 de Agosto de 2021, Domingo 22o del Tiempo Ordinario

“No solo escuchen la palabra de Dios; tienen que ponerla en práctica”... SANTIAGO 1:22
Es fácil comprender la definición de corresponsabilidad -vivir una vida agradecida y generosa. ¡La parte difícil es hacerlo! ¿Como reflejan sus acciones la palabra de Dios? ¿Comparte su tiempo en oración con Dios? ¿Usa sus talentos para ayudar a aquellos que lo necesitan? ¿Es usted generoso con sus recursos financieros? Si no es así, ¿que está esperando?

Capodanno, MM, will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, 7 September 2021, in the Crypt Church of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, 400 Michigan Avenue, Northeast, Washington, D.C.
