Exercising good stewardship over our life of prayer is the first essential step to our ultimate goal in the spiritual life: to live unceasingly with a deep joy in the presence of God.

Models of Stewardship
We celebrate the life of Saint Maria Bertilla Boscardin’s during the month of October. Saint Maria Bertilla gave witness to Christian stewardship through her simple living and caring for others as a nurse and consecrated religious. A plaque remains at the hospital in her honor, describing her as a “chosen soul of heroic goodness...an angelic alleviator of human suffering ...” Her feast day is October 20.
You Are the Light of the World (Matthew 14-16)
Jesus Christ’s followers shine the light of the Lord on those around them by the words they speak and the actions they take. This is one of the great gospel images of discipleship: the light of discipleship in Christ shining for all the world to see.
