Stewardship

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself. — Luke 10:27

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Yes, indeed, we are called to love God with our whole self, with our entire being, with all that we have in this life. In the Divine Liturgy we pray over and over again... Let us commend ourselves and each other and all our life unto Christ our God.

When the love of Christ is the controlling force in our lives, it is easy to give sacrificially, to pray daily, to fast, to come to church every Sunday, to witness, to defend truth, to live morally, to forgive others, to help our neighbor. But when the love of Christ is not the motivating force in our lives, then all these actions become unpleasant duties. As love makes it easy for a mother to watch over a sick child for hours on end, so love counts it a joy for us to labor, to suffer, to give for our Master and God Jesus Christ.

In short, if we love much, we give much. If we love little, we give little. Let us love God, His Church and our fellow brothers and sisters, by supporting our parish. Our church cannot operate with our your support and involvement.

With love in Christ,
Archpriest John Vass
Pastor
