Readings for September 29th, 2019

       Jesus told a story about a rich man who refused to share even the crumbs from his table with a starving beggar who sat at his gate. One great evil in the world today is the terrible indifference towards one's neighbor which is so widespread. Yet all of us are beggars before God.
       Let us ask God's forgiveness, especially for our refusal to show concern for those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
       I confess to Almighty God...

Reflections

How Wealth is Judged

A week ago the sycamore tree was loaded with gold.
However, instead of sitting back and enjoying it, it began to give away.
At first it was just a leaf here and a leaf there,
whenever the wind asked for a contribution
But soon it was giving it away in fistfuls,
without being asked, and without a thought for a wintry tomorrow.
Wealth is judged, not by the amount that is accumulated,
but by the amount that is given away.
The only wealth that is worth having is the wealth of the heart.

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
