I recently visited with the pastoral council of a local parish. It was the first meeting of the season for the council, and the first meeting for newly appointed members. I was asked to provide a brief introduction to stewardship. After prayer, I asked the group “when I say the word ‘stewardship’ what first comes to mind?”

Cardinal Edmund Szoka1927-2014
As we observe Respect Life Month, we are especially mindful of the gift of your Son, Jesus Christ, whose life, ministry, death and resurrection serve to witness Your immeasurable love for us all.
May Christ lead us to be good stewards of our brothers and sisters, and to realize that all lives we bring to Him are sacred and deserve to be looked upon in Your image and likeness.
Strengthen those who devote their lives to nurturing the most vulnerable, including the sick, the aged, children and those yet to be born. Let their witness give us the courage and resolve to proclaim the Gospel of Life to all whom we encounter.
We ask all this in Jesus’ name.
