Did you know that half the parables that Jesus tells in the gospels are about Stewardship? We learn from this fact that Stewardship is more than just an "add-on" to the Christian life. It is more than money. It is more than funding a school. It is not a way to promote volunteerism. It is a Way of Life which Jesus himself practiced and taught. To be Catholic is to be a Steward. To be a Steward is to be Catholic.
