Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Times
January 30, 2011

 


 
TODAY (Green)                    NEXT WEEK (Green)          Zep 2:3; 3:12-13                                                   Is 58:7-10
1 Cor 1:26-31                                                     1 Cor 2:1-5
Mt 5:1-12a                                                          Mt 5:13-16
 
What identifies God’s chosen “remnant” is not wealth, possessions, or power over others, but lowliness, humility, justice, and truthfulness. Jesus elaborates God’s call to this way of living when he proclaims the Beatitudes to his disciples. Our blessedness is both a quality of who we are and a blueprint for how we are to live as followers of Jesus. We are to be the “remnant” who carry forth God’s eternal plan for establishing a just reign.

STEWARDSHIP MEANS RETURNING THE FIRST PORTION of all God has given you.
STEWARDSHIP IS:
A way to thank God for blessing you with special gifts. It’s based on your need to give something back to God—not on the church’s need for money.
A lifelong commitment to follow Jesus, regardless of the cost. Your commitment to God can’t be expressed in any single action.
A rewarding way of life in which your personal relationship with Jesus is enriched and deepened every day.
The key to peace—it makes the world we live in a better place for everyone.
 
GIVE FROM SUBSTANCE—NOT ABUNDANCE.
 
Give back the first portion of all your God given gifts. Make sharing a top priority—not something you do with your remaining time and money.
        Your giving is the key to the success of the church plans and programs. To help us meet our obligations, please pray about TITHING and becoming GOOD STEWARDS, by obtaining Offertory Envelopes available in the Marian Hall as a weekly reminder to support your church.  


The St. Lucia Choir will practice on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m., and Sundays at 5:00 p.m. in the Marian Hall.
