What is Stewardship?


A steward is someone who takes care of what belongs to someone else, like an administrator or trustee not an owner.  Christian stewards recognize that everything really belongs to God - everything we are and everything we have - and that God will hold us accountable for how we use the many gifts he has entrusted to our care.

If we truly believe this and experience a conversion of heart, we can't hel but respond with profound gratitude.  This gratitdude is expressed inour celebration of the Eucharist (the very word means thanks) and in the way we live our everyday lives.

The life of a Christian steward models the life of Jesus.  When we accept our lives as sheer gifts, the Spirit can use us as apt instruments for spreading the Gospel.  Wherever the Spirit works, there is joy.  God stewards are always the joyful bearers of the Good News of Salvation.

THE NEED TO GIVE VS. GIVING TO THE NEED

 

Lenten Prayer
 

from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (usccb.org)

In the name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Keep your family, O Lord,
schooled always in good works,
and so comfort them with your protection here
as to lead them graciously to gifts in high.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity
of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Stewardship Meditation:
“Bear your share of the hardship for the Gospel,”
St. Paul tells Timothy in today’s second reading. What sacrifice is asked of me for the sake of the Gospel? How willing am I to bear my share?

 

Stewardship is not a program.
It is a way of life

Stewardship is not an activity.
It is an attitude

Stewardship is not the latest fad.
It is biblically based

Stewardship is not a way to raise money.
It is a way to attain holiness

Stewardship is not just a decision of the head.
It requires a conversion of the heart

Stewardship is not a topic to learn.
It is a process of becoming

Stewardship is not an option.
It is integral to our Catholic faith

Stewardship is not another thing to do.
It is why and how we do what we do

Stewardship is not about our generosity.
It is about our response to God's generosity

Stewardship is what you do after you say,
"I Believe."
