Sharing our Blessings Week Three Action Item
Week Three Action Item
This is the third of five action items for
Sharing Our Blessings 2018
. Once you have completed the Sunday reflection, considering the following:
In this Sunday’s reflections, you saw two examples of how Jesus saw Himself and His relationship to the Father. First, He acknowledges that people’s gifts (in this case, the woman’s perfume)
be poured out to honor Him. Second, Jesus submits Himself entirely to the Father and prays, “not my will, but yours be done.” How do these two moments relate to you, your gifts, and how they should be used for the love of God and neighbor?
Have you placed your gifts and treasures at the service of God and neighbor? Do you do this on your own schedule, when it is convenient, or regularly and regardless of convenience?
Visit the parish website and click on “online giving.” If you have not already done so, consider signing up and making your weekly offering an automatic payment, which occurs regularly. It is a safe, convenient, and efficient way to give—to give freely of your gifts, even when you are not present at Mass on Sunday.
Watch for a reflection email next Sunday from your parish.
