International Catholic Stewardship Council
The International Catholic Stewardship Council promotes and supports Catholic teaching on stewardship by providing education and resources for dioceses, parishes, and institutions of the Roman Catholic Church.
We are an Easter people. The joy of Easter is celebrated not only during the liturgical season we call Easter. It is celebrated every day of the year.
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” (From Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount – Matthew 5: 14-16)
Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, reminds us that, “as it expands, goodness takes root and develops. If we wish to lead a dignified and fulfilling life, we have to reach out to others and seek their good” (Evangelii Gaudium, 9). Reaching out to others is an integral part of being a good steward of the gifts God has given to us. By reaching out to others in our families, parishes, communities and local Churches, we actually show in a tangible way how we return God’s gifts back to Him with our gratitude.

Our Blessed Lord! Our Risen Savior! We give you thanks for the awe-inspiring gift of Easter and the redemption we enjoy as a result of your gift. We give you thanks for calling us your friends and allowing us to share your body and blood in the holy Eucharist. Oh merciful Lord, Redeemer and Teacher, by the power of the Holy Spirit give us the skills to listen to you more closely; the wisdom to put the Eucharist into action; and the courage to bring your Easter message of hope to a world that desperately needs your love. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen
