STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION: Sometimes in the busyness of our daily lives, we can mistakenly think that our gifts are of our own doing, forgetting the true source of all of our gifts. The same Spirit that raised Lazarus from the dead dwells in us. What a gift! It is this same Spirit that decides which gifts to give each of us (1 Cor. 12:11). Good stewards acknowledge God as the one true source of all their gifts. They share their gifts in the renewal of society and the building up of God’s Kingdom.

STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION: Today we remember the Transfiguration. In today‟s Gospel, Peter says to Jesus that, „it is good for us to be here”. Do you ever wonder why there were not more disciples on the mountain that day? Could it be that they were too busy! Stewardship means that we are accountable for the use of all our gifts, including the gift of each day, our time. Once we spend our time we cannot get it back. How do you steward your time? Peter, James and John took the time to be with Jesus and were rewarded. It was good for them to be there!

At present the diocese has 17 priests on full retirement, 13 on partial retirement (still working or semi retired) and 1 on sick benefits for total benefits of over $314,000. With 30 receiving benefits, the Society needs all the help it can get. The amount this collection brings in often determines whether the savings go up or down in any given year. With interest rates being low, that important source of income is greatly reduced.

Stations of the Cross will be held every Friday in Lent after the Noon Mass. Lent is a preparation of Easter, a time of conversion, growth, repentance, almsgiving and prayer. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting and abstaining from meat for all adults.

MARCH 6, 2011 – 9th Sunday in Ordinary Time:
Our Lord gives us two distinct commands today. We must listen and we must act. We listen when we participate in Mass. We act when we participate in the ministry of the parish. We need to do both for a strong foundation. Participating more fully in the liturgy and life of the parish may require some changes on our part. We may have to move away from our current lifestyle so that we can move closer to God.
