13th Sunday in Ordinary Time - July 1, 2012
St. Paul gives us a beautiful lesson in stewardship today. “I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of balance between your present abundance and their need.” In our culture of excessive materialism and consumerism it appears that we can never get enough of what we don’t really need. To counter this we always do well to recognize God as the source of all our gifts including the overwhelming abundance that we enjoy as Canadians. We pray that we may possess sensibly so that we have the freedom to share generously with those who have less. Stewardship Office, The Archdiocese of Winnipeg, www.archwinnipeg.ca
14th Sunday in Ordinary Time - July 8, 2012
In today’s Gospel the people in Jesus’ own hometown were very upset by his teaching. The stewardship message is challenging and at times can make us feel a little uncomfortable. Our own friends and family may even question our commitment to this way of life. Yet, stewardship is exactly what is needed in a society that worships complexity, busyness, and the excessive accumulation of material goods. When questioned will you have the courage to take the risk of being a prophetic disciple who lives a steward’s lifestyle?
