Small Steps to Stewardship:
Cindy Nau, Stewardship Director
Fr. Michael Greco’s mission was thought-provoking and spiritual. On Monday, he had readers share this beautiful reflection, which is perfect to carry us through the rest of our Lenten journey.
FAST from judging others;
FEAST on the Christ dwelling within them.
FAST from emphasis on differences;
FEAST on unity of all life.
FAST from apparent darkness;
FEAST on the reality of light.
FAST from thoughts of illness;
FEAST on the healing power of God.
FAST from words that pollute;
FEAST on the phrases that purify.
FAST from discontent;
FEAST on gratitude.
FAST from anger;
FEAST on patience.
FAST from pessimism:
FEAST on optimism.
FAST from worry;
FEAST on God’s guiding presence.
FAST from complaining;
FEAST on appreciation.
FAST from negatives;
FEAST on positives.
FAST from unrelenting pressures;
FEAST on unceasing prayer.
FAST from hostility;
FEAST on bringing peace.
FAST from bitterness:
FEAST on forgiveness.
FAST from anxiety.
FEAST on hope.
FAST from yourself.
