Labouring for the Steward’s Great Reward
After labouring in the temple for his entire life, Simeon was rewarded with the gift of beholding Christ with his own eyes. The reward of Simeon is the reward awaiting all of Christ’s faithful stewards. So when the commitment to our life of stewardship becomes difficult and we’re tempted to despair, let us remember the reward that awaits us of beholding Him with utter joy and peace in Heaven.

STEWARDSHIP: HEEDING THE CALL OF CHRIST
Just as He called His apostles, Jesus says to us, “come follow me.” Jesus calls us to accept the mission of being true stewards of Christ for His glory and the good of the Church. Let us imitate the apostles and follow the call of Christ immediately, being resolved to commit to a
stewardship way of life for our parishes.
