Sowing seeds: Stewardship transfigures us

“These linked realities, discipleship and stewardship, then make up the fabric of a Christian life in which each day is lived in an intimate, personal relationship with the Lord.”
—Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response
U.S. Catholic bishops’ pastoral letter on stewardship

Talk about an intimate, personal relationship with Jesus Christ! Gospel accounts of the Transfiguration indicate that Peter, James and John had a dazzling vision of the Lord in His radiant glory and heard the voice of God. Yet our discipleship does not require mountaintop visions or voices from clouds. Our intimate, personal relationship with the Lord does not hinge on phenomenal encounters. Like the Old Testament prophet Elijah — also present at the Transfiguration — the Christian steward knows God not only in dramatic situations, but even in the whisper of gentle breezes.

“Lord Jesus Christ, may your light shine before all, in all, overall.”
AMEN

How do you recognize the glory of the Risen Christ? What might you do to allow the Lord of Light to radiate from the fabric of your Christian life each day?
