Stewardship – Faith on Fire, Hearts & Minds Transformed Paul reminds us today that we are all chosen and called by God. All of us are called to be Christian disciples. This is our common vocation. A disciple of Jesus is one who responds to the call and lives a life in imitation of Christ. Stewardship is a part of that. It is the work of the Holy Spirit in us, which activates our gifts and makes being a disciple possible. So let us be humble and boast in the one source of all our gifts – God. Stewardship Office, The Archdiocese of Winnipeg,
