As Christian stewards, we recieve God's gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.
(CCC United States Catholic Catechism for adults)
"As each one has recieved a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace." - 1 Pt 4:10
Loving God, we come to you in thanksgiving, knowing all that we are, and all that we have, is a gift from you. Speak your words into the depth of our souls, that we may hear you clearly. Give us the wisdom and insight to understand your will for us, and the fervor to fulfill our good intentions. We offer our gifts of time, talent, and treasure to you as a true act of faith, to reflect our love for you and our neighbor. Help us to reach out to others as you, our God, have reached out to us. Amen
