Reflections

Being With Christ

Jesus says: "Whoever is not with me is against me " :
and whoever does not gather with me scatters."
I sometimes feel that my life is like scrubland,
halfway between garden and desert.
I sometimes feel that I live in a world of twilight, halfway between day and night.
I sometimes feel like lukewarm water, halfway between hot and cold.
I sometimes feel that I am in a state of indifference halfway between love and hate.
I sometimes feel I am trudging along a safe little path halfway between good and evil.
Lord, save me from the illusio n
that because I am not against you, I am therefore for you.
Above all, save me from being neutral.

Why Do Cathothics Do That?

What are the Challenges to Stewardship?

The challenge to stewardship is the dominant secular culture which often contradicts religious convictions about the meaning of life.
This is a culture in which destructive “ism”- materialism, relativism, hedonism, individualism, consumerism- exercise seductive, powerful influences.
The secular culture frequently encourages us to focus on ourselves and our pleasure. At times, we can find it far too easy to ignore spiritual realities and to deny religion a role in shaping human and social values.
We know what it is to struggle against selfishness and greed, and we realize that it is harder for many today to accept the challenge of being a Christian steward.
It is essential therefore, that we make a special effort to understand the true meaning of stewardship and live accordingly.
(U.S. Bishops’ Pastoral Letter, Stewardship)
Stewardship is a way of life.
It’s all about gratitude.
It’s all about giving back.
It’s all about God
