January 23rd - 24th.

The time is now. When our world is shaken by fear, anxiety or despair, the Church while not “of the world” must be “in the world” to witness God’s love. By faith and baptism, we are incorporated into the Body of Christ: we are the Church. Uniting as Disciples in Faith and Missionaries of Hope, we can serve those most in need by bringing Christ to them wherever they are.

This weekend is ABCD Commitment Weekend. The Love of Christ urges on no matter what challenges may come our way. Together, as One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity, please open your hearts to those we serve through the ABCD and make a gift of hope today.

Thank you and God bless you!

What do you treasure?

So often, when people think of the word “stewardship,” the first thing that comes to their mind is “money.” It is unfortunate. The reaction comes in part from the word rarely being used outside of the request for financial giving. It is unfortunate because it limits the power stewardship has to make a difference in the ways in which faith directs our lives. When we speak of stewardship of treasure, we are usually referring to money. Yet there is something deeper at work here. What do we treasure? Do we treasure money for the good it can do, or does money signify security or status? How much do we really need?

Even while many of us spend much of our lives acquiring financial resources, deep in our hearts we know that money only goes so far. What we really treasure cannot be bought. The things in life that are most important are not things. Our only true security is in God’s providence. Our true status is as children of God and disciples of Jesus Christ.

“The Lord’s are the earth and its fullness; the world and those who dwell in it.” Psalm 24:1

Dear Lord,
It is You who calls us to stewardship in our lives.
It is You who sowed the seeds of talent in us
and have helped us to harvest a multitude of
blessings in this world.

Help me to be a faithful steward, to share
abundantly form my storehouse of blessing to
glorify Your Name.

Help me to place my trust firmly in You, secure in
Your promise to multiply Your goodness to those who
seek You and Your kingdom.

All that I have is yours. Bless me with a spirit of
generosity. Make me a gift to others in Your name.
Amen.

Dear Father,
Who has given us the ardent testimony of the young servant of God, Carlo Acutis, who made the Eucharist the core of his life and the strength of his daily commitments so that everybody may love you abov all else, let him soon be counted among the Blesseds and the Saints in Your Church.

Confirm my Faith, Nuture my Hope, Strengthen my Charity, In the image of young Carlo, Who, growing in these virtues, now lives with you.

Grant me the grace i really need...

I trust in You, Father and your Beloved Son Jesus, In the Virgin Mary, Our Dearest Mother, and in the intervention of Your Servant, Carlo Acutis.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
