Prayer

ICSC July 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.

Models of Stewardship

Stewardship Saints - Saint Benedict

Saint Benedict, who was active in the early sixth century, is considered the father of Western monasticism and a model of Christian stewardship. He prescribed a life of simplicity, generosity and community that focused its life daily and, indeed, hourly on Christ Jesus. Benedictine asceticism is known for its moderation, and Benedictine generosity has always shown concern for the people in the surrounding countryside. In the course of the Middle Ages, all monasticism in the West was gradually brought under the Rule of St. Benedict.
