Stewardship Reflection for
April 27, Sunday of Divine Mercy
In today’s first reading, the four activities of the
earliest church are introduced to us as priorities of the
church: devotion to the teachings of the apostles,
communal fellowship, the Eucharist and prayer. The
early members of the church saw themselves as
devoted stewards of these activities. These were not
options. They were the fruits of a genuine conversion
to a life in Christ. Sharing in the Eucharist was the
most intimate expression of fellowship, while the most
common expression of fellowship in the New Testament was that of sharing financial resources– giving.
It was not a perfect community, but one that gave evidence of God’s active presence in its midst. This early
community offers us an excellent example of how to
better exercise stewardship in our own parish families.
