We Believe in One Worthy of Honor

prayer march2019The very heart of the Gospel proclaims the vitality of Catholic belief. We believe. From St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans, we find this truth affirmed. “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved” (Romans 10:9-10).

The writer of Hebrews echoed the Apostle’s perspective. “We see Jesus ‘crowned with glory and honor’ because he suffered death, he who ‘for a little while’ was made ‘lower than the angels,’ that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone” (Hebrews 2:9). It is that sacrificial offering that we honor in each service of the Eucharist. Jesus, Son of God, died that we might live; and he rose, that we might be granted everlasting life in him.

In our worship, we offer prayers of thanks for God’s person, character, and his blessings to us. As the Son of Glory taught us, “This is how we are to pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and do not subject us to the final test, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matthew 6:9-13). We believe. We worship. We celebrate the Eucharist. We pray. We honor God, and we honor the Son who purchased life for us.

Stewardship Today is a monthly devotional newsletter designed to assist Catholics everywhere in developing a greater understanding of the role of stewardship in everyday life.
All we are, and all we possess, are gifts from God for our use and for the blessing of others. Through wise stewardship, we invest our time, our talents and our treasures to the glory of God.
