Stewardship of Prayer and Reflection    

        

     In one of his early “parishes,” some 2,000 year ago, Paul tried to be as gentle “as a nursing mother,” serving “with such affection” that he shared not only “the gospel of God, but our very selves.” Paul strove not to be a burden, indeed to embrace “toil and drudgery,” so that the word of God he preached would ring true. An ideal that all of us—clergy and laity—can take to heart and put into practice.

     En una de sus primeras “parroquias” hace alrededor 2.000 mil años, Pablo trató a la gente con la misma ternura de “una madre [que] estrecha en su regazo a sus pequeños” sirviéndolos con “tan grande afecto” que compartió “no solamente el Evangelio de Dios, sino nuestra propia vida”. Pablo se esforzó por no ser una carga, es más, trabajó “de día y de noche” a fin de que la palabra de Dios actuara en ellos. Esto es un ideal que todos nosotros, tanto el clero como los laicos, podemos tomar muy en serio y ponerlo en práctica.
