Guided by scripture, the Christian steward is a person whose prayer leads to a constant awareness that God is the creator of all blessings in life. He is the origin of life, giver of freedom, and the source of all things. Jesus presented the ultimate gift to God — the gift of His life — and we, too, are called to follow in Jesus’ footsteps by:
• Receiving God’s gifts gratefully
• Cultivating them responsibly
• Sharing them lovingly in justice with others and
• Returning them with increase to the Lord.
“When we come together for the Annual Catholic Appeal, we unite our resources to help our sisters and brothers in need. Join me in extending the mercy and joy of the Lord Jesus to others.”
