May 16, 2021 Ascension of Our Lord Stewardship Reflection

“Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.”
- 1 JOHN 4:15

How strong is your faith? When you have an opportunity to either defend or clarify a question about our Catholic faith, do you do it? Or, do you remain silent so that others don't think you are weird? Pray for the courage to be strong in all circumstances and to joyfully share your witness with others.

16 De Mayo De 2021 La Ascensión de Nuestro Señor

“Todo aquel que confiese que Jesús es el Hijo de Dios, permanece en Dios, y Dios en él.” - 1 JUAN 4:15
¿Qué tan fuerte es su fe? Cuando tienes la oportunidad de defender o aclarar un asunto acerca de la fe Católica, ¿lo haces? ¿O permaneces en silencio para que otros no piensen que eres raro? Rece para tener el coraje de ser fuerte en cualquier circunstancia y compartir con los demás su testimonio con alegría.

May 23, 2021 Pentecost Sunday Stewardship Reflection

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone.” 1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-6
All of us are blessed, regardless of our own individual circumstances. God has given each of us many gifts. How we use those gifts is our gift back to God. For God's plan to work, each must do what we are called to do. Guess what? We are not all called to do the same thing! For God's plan to work you have to do what God is calling you to do and I have to do what God is calling me to do.

23 de mayo de 2021 Domingo de Pentecostés

“Ahora bien, hay diversidad de dones, pero el Espíritu es el mismo. Hay diversidad de ministerios, pero el Señor es el mismo. Hay diversidad de actividades, pero Dios, que hace todo en todos, es el mismo.” - 1 CORINTIOS 12:4-6
Todos somos bendecidos, independientemente de nuestras propias circunstancias individuales. Dios ha concedido muchos dones a cada uno de nosotros. La manera en la que utilizamos esos dones es nuestro regalo de vuelta a Dios. Para que el plan de Dios funcione, cada uno debe hacer lo que estamos llamados a hacer. ¿Adivine qué? ¡No todos estamos llamados a hacer las mismas cosas! Para que el plan de Dios funcione usted tiene que hacer lo que Dios lo ha llamado a hacer y yo tengo que hacer lo que Dios me llama a hacer a mí.

May 30, 2021 The Most Holy Trinity Stewardship Reflection

“The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” - ROMANS 8:16-17
If we are heirs to the kingdom of God, shouldn't we work to build up His kingdom? Shouldn't we be good stewards of our inheritance, using our time in prayer, our talent in charitable works and our treasure to care for the Church that God has left to us? Our Church is a treasured heirloom from God. Do we treat it that way?

30 de mayo de 2021 La Santísima Trinidad

“Y ese mismo Espíritu es el que, uniéndose al nuestro, da testimonio de que somos hijos de Dios. Y si somos hijos, también somos herederos: herederos de Dios y coherederos con Cristo…” ROMANOS - 8:16-17
¿Si somos herederos del reino de Dios, no deberíamos trabajar para construir Su reino? ¿No deberíamos ser buenos administradores de su herencia, utilizando nuestro tiempo para orar, nuestro talento en obras de caridad y nuestros tesoros para cuidar de la Iglesia que Dios nos dejó? Nuestra Iglesia es un preciado legado de Dios. ¿La tratamos cómo lo que es?
