O Servant of all, may we follow your call to be a servant by caring for the people around us, humbling ourselves before you and one another, reaching out to those in distress, and taking the time to participate actively in the work of the Church.

Stewardship Thought - - Matthew 25:30a – “And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness.” Why did the worthless servant act the way he did? Because of what he believed about the Master. He didn’t trust or love the Master. So, his actions did not demonstrate love and trust but rather hate and mistrust. It’s the same with us, but in reverse. Since we know our Lord God to be faithful and kind, we desire to serve Him and render faithful service with what He has given us.
