Good Stewards Live the Beatitudes

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).

Stewardship Prayer for February

Gracious God,

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.
