September 24, the Archdiocese of St.
Louis celebrates its 17th
Sunday. Christian Stewardship is a spiritual way of
life wherein we are aware of God’s gifts to
us; as grateful stewards of His many gifts, we respond by sharing our time, our talents, and our treasure.
foundation of stewardship is prayer.
Through prayer we realize how absolutely everything is a gift from God.
Our appreciation of His gifts a
nd grace leads to generosity.
Immacolata parish is here today because of the spiritual generosity of all those who have gone before
us. We are blessed to have a tradition of involvement and dedication. However, we can never take Christian
Stewardship for granted. Stewardship Awareness Sunday gives us the opportunity to
review our prayer life,
and to examine how we express our gratitude to God through giving of
our time, talent, and treasure:
When it comes to sharing, do I pick the path of least resistance and give only from what is extra?
Do I recognize that God is calling me to share all my gifts?
Am I aware that by sharing
all of my gifts, I put God first in everything I do?
In the next few weeks, let us consider our role as God’s stewards, and prayerfully reflect on specific ways that
I can respond with gratitude and generosity.
