ICSC August 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 August stewardship prayer for your consideration.   Continue Reading…

Stewardship Saints

Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross is regarded as one of the most prolific Catholic philosophers of the 20th century. Although of Jewish heritage and upbringing, she professed to be an atheist as a young professor of philosophy until she had a conversion experience after reading the autobiography of St. Teresa of Avila. She became a Catholic and eventually entered the Carmelite community at Cologne, Germany, taking the name Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. Sister Teresa died at Auschwitz on August 9, 1942. She was canonized by Saint John Paul II in 1998.

Stewardship Reflection - Blessed be the name of the Lord: The Spirituality of Stewardship, Sharing God's Gifts

Embracing a life of Christian stewardship gives us the power to change how we perceive Jesus Christ working in our lives and how we respond in a practical way from day to day. In this excerpted pastoral letter by the Most Reverend Roberto Gonzalez Nieves, Archbishop of San Juan, Puerto Rico, we can see how he points the way to a deeper understanding of our need to respond to the Lord in gratitude for the abundance of grace-filled gifts that have been given to us by an infinitely gracious and generous God.
