June 24 Stewardship Reflection

The Nativity of St. John the Baptist
“…Behold, one is coming after me; I am not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.” – ACTS 13:25

Stewardship is a lifestyle, it’s not a program or a process. It’s how we are called to live our lives twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week! It challenges us to live “God-centered” lives, not “self-centered” lives. Reflect on your daily activities, do you do them for the glory of God or for the glory of your own name?

Expiration Date: June 25, 2018


(For June 30-July 1 bulletin)

July 1 Stewardship Reflection

13th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“…as a matter of equality your abundance at the present time should supply their want, so that their abundance may supply your want, that there may be equality.”  (2 CORINTHIANS 8:14)
We are responsible not only for our own lives, but for the lives of those around us.  It is important that we not only grow, nurture and share our gifts; but that we also teach our children and encourage others to do the same.  This is the communal aspect of our Catholic faith.  We are the “Body of Christ”.  We are called to be dependent on each other and not live in isolation.

Event Date: June 30-July 1, 2018

Expiration Date: July 2, 2018


(For July 7-8 bulletin)

July 8 Stewardship Reflection

14th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“As the Lord spoke to me, the spirit entered me and set me on my feet, and I heard the one who was speaking say to me, ‘Son of man, I am sending you…’”   (EZEKIEL 2:2-3)
God asks each of us to do some special work for Him.   He gives us the resources we need to do His work.  However, do we listen to God when He calls?  Do we get up on our feet and use our talent to do the work He asks of us?  Remember, God doesn’t call the equipped, he equips the called.

Event Date: July 7-8, 2018

Expiration Date: July 9, 2018


(For July 14-15 bulletin)

July 15 Stewardship Reflection

15th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“He instructed them to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick – no food, no sack, no money in their belts.” (MARK 6:8)
How different we are from the Apostles who took nothing when they ventured out to serve God.  Today, we make our life’s journey more difficult because of all the material baggage that we drag along.  When we really put God first in everything and put money and possessions second, we experience more freedom to joyfully serve God and others.

Event Date: July 14-15, 2018

Expiration Date: July 16, 2018


(For July 21-22 bulletin)

July 22 Stewardship Reflection

16th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“…come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest awhile.” (Mark 6:31)
Do you spend time, every day, alone and in silence listening to how God is calling you?  If not, you are missing out on a wonderful opportunity to develop a more personal relationship with Him.  Unless we talk and more importantly, listen to God every day, how else will we know how He is calling us?  Consider making a retreat this year, spend some “alone” time with God.

Event Date: July 21-22, 2018

Expiration Date: July 23, 2018


(For July 28-29 bulletin)

July 29 Stewardship Reflection

17th Sunday in Ordinary Time
“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?”
  (JOHN 6:9)
The miracle of the Loaves and Fishes is the only miracle which is recorded six times in the Gospel.  It carries two important messages.  First, no matter how little we have, we always have enough to share.  Second, Christ can take our humble gifts and do great things with them if we are just willing to let Him.  No gift is too small or insignificant!

Event Date: July 28-29, 2018

Expiration Date: July 30, 2018
