“But Jesus lives on forever, and his work as priest does not pass on to someone else. And so he is able, now and always, to save those who come to God through Him, because he lives forever to plead with God for them”

“The promotion of the practice of Stewardship is important for the Mission of the Church and for the Spiritual well being of each individual Christian. Everyone benefits from the sacrificial gift one makes of his Time, Talent and treasure. Therefore, please accept my encouragement for your efforts and my prayers that your upcoming conference will be a stimulus to the practice of Stewardship in the Church.”
His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI
Basically we are all caretakers (Stewards) of everything the Lord gives us. When we are good STEWARDS, we use the gifts well. We light the way for others to meet Jesus. (EVANGELIZATION)
Each aspect of STEWARDSHIP is equally important for Spiritual growth, our gifts to God of our TIME, our TALENT and our TREASURE. STEWARDSHIP is a conversion process of the heart and mind, not our wallets and purses.
