A Stewardship Moment
Seventh Sunday of Easter
In today’s second reading, we hear it proclaimed that we are blessed if we share in the sufferings of Christ. What then does it mean to “share in His sufferings” in this context? Most of us do not live in a part of the world where we could be killed for being a follower of Jesus. But we could face or “suffer” mockery, ridicule and disapproval from others. Far too often, and for various reasons, those who profess faith in Christ act as though they are ashamed of him. But to act ashamed is the same as a denial. Stewards of the Good News are never ashamed to reveal their love for the Lord. How do you reveal to oth-ers that you are a follower of Christ each day?
