As good stewards, we learn to trust much more in God, and much less in ourselves. Let us trust in God’s plan, and be open to the Holy Spirit working in the lives of each of our family members, particularly those who have fallen away from their faith. Stewardship Office, The Archdiocese of Winnipeg,
