January 26 Stewardship Reflection

3rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father and followed Him.”   MATTHEW 4:22Just as Jesus called the first apostles, He calls each of us to follow Him, too.  Not everyone is called to leave their business or family behind, but we are expected to put God first in everything.  Everything from our time in daily prayer, our talent in participating in one of our parish ministries and our treasure to support the financial needs of our parish mission.

February 2 Stewardship Reflection

The Presentation of the Lord

 “…they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord...”   LUKE 2:22

How seriously do you take being a Catholic?  Is “being Catholic” something I just do when I attend Sunday Mass or attend one of my parish functions?  It's easy to be Catholic then, it's harder to be Catholic when I am out in the world.  Would someone recognize you as a Catholic by the way you act, dress and talk?  How do you present yourself to the Lord and to others?

Event Date:  February 2, 2020
Expiration Date:

February 9 Stewardship Reflection

5th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”    MATTHEW 5:16

The generosity of being a good steward of your gifts has a positive effect on people and it is contagious!  Good works encourages more good works.  Let your light shine!  Be careful to recognize that God is working through you and don't put yourself above the people you have been called to help.

Event Date:  February 9, 2020

(For February 15-16 bulletin)

February 16 Stewardship Reflection

6th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”   MATTHEW 5:20

The scribes and Pharisees lived according to the letter of the law and they used this to elevate themselves above the other people.  Jesus is clear - it's the love that you have in your heart that will get you to heaven.  Simply following church rules out of obligation, not love, does not put you on the path to heaven.  Attending Mass on Sunday and then gossiping about a fellow parishioner on the parking lot is an example of a modern day Pharisee.


(For February 22-23 bulletin)

February 23 Stewardship Reflection

7th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…”   MATTHEW 5:44

Love your enemies, easier said than done, no doubt.  But, remember, the foundation of stewardship is prayer.  When we are in close communication with God, it opens our heart and it turns our attention away from “me” and moves it towards God and others.  It allows us to have a little more empathy for “our enemy”.  When we pray for others, even “our enemies”, maybe it softens their hearts as well.
