Prayer

ICSC May Stewardship Prayer

Prayer is the first principle to embracing stewardship as a way of life. Through prayer, we confront our own spiritual disorganization and chaos and create a sacred inner space within ourselves where we can meet and have a conversation with God. 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. On the next page we have included a May stewardship prayer for your consideration.   Continue Reading…

Models of Stewardship

Stewardship Saints - Saint Luis Batiz Saenz

May 25 is the feast day of Saint Luis Batiz Saenz. He was a Mexican Catholic priest who ministered in the state of Zacatecas and suffered martyrdom at the beginning of the Mexican uprising against the anti-Catholic regime of Plutarco Elías Calles. In the Jubilee year of 2000, Saint John Paul II canonized him along with 24 other Mexicans, mostly priests, who suffered martyrdom at the hands of the Mexican federal authorities during the “Cristeros War.”

Stewardship Reflection: We are Easter People!

No matter what we have endured the past few weeks, let us remember that 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. The Mass is the Paschal Mystery, and every time it is celebrated, we participate in the sacrifice, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. As St. Paul teaches, we die with Christ and rise with Him in the Holy Spirit. We are transformed into new creations. We are renewed.
