When will I have given enough of my income, of my time, of my talents? Today’s Gospel suggests that only total stewardship will do: “When you have done all you have been commanded to do, say, “We are useless servants. We have done no more than our duty.”

“Stewardship by the Book” by Sharon Huekel

BLOOD DRIVE UPDATE

Thank you to all the generous donors at Mater Dolorosa who were willing to donate blood. Twenty-two pints were collected and that means that this blood drive helped 60 people! God bless all of you who were turned away for medical reasons. Due to the hard work of Stella DeCesare we will host a Blood Drive at Mater Dolorosa again in January 2008!
Thank You
