Monsignor Matthew BernelliPastor Emeritus, St. Mary Catholic ChurchBridgeport, Connecticut
For over a decade Monsignor Matthew Bernelli has shared his vision of stewardship with the ICSC family, contributing his wisdom and experience to the Spanish-language track at ICSC conferences. He is Pastor Emeritus of St. Mary Catholic Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where he was pastor for 36 years.
Three weekends in our February liturgical calendar will turn our attention to Jesus’ teachings in the Gospel of Matthew explaining what is to be expected of those who choose to follow him. This is the familiar Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5:1 – 7:29), the most quoted part of the Bible. Jesus’ sermon begins with messages of comfort, the Beatitudes (Matt. 5:3-12).

You sent us Your Son to show us the way to you.
Grant us the wisdom to live out his Beatitudes according to the gifts we have been given.
Give us the courage to be good stewards of the Gospel and fervent disciples.
And show us how to recognize that through his gift of the Eucharist there is one bread, and we are one body;
that we live no longer for ourselves, but in Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
