Circular 2011/7

RE: STEWARDSHIP HOMILIES

 

My dear brothers in the priesthood and brothers and sisters in the consecrated life:

 

Enclosed are two meditations on the SPIRITUALITY OF STEWARDSHIP that we have adopted as the formation thrust in the Archdiocese of Lingayen Dagupan.

 

The first meditation may be used for Ash Wednesday and the second meditation for the first Sunday of Lent. You may use it as a basis for preparing your Lenten homilies or you may also read the meditation as is during the homilies at Mass. I also suggest that you make use of the themes contained herein in your parish Lenten seminars and recollections this year. The meditations for the succeeding weeks will be sent to you later.

Please keep in mind that one of the expected results of this pursuit of the Spirituality of Stewardship is the gradual phase out of the arancel system in the dispensation of the sacraments and sacramentals. We are moving towards encouraging voluntary offerings from the Catholic faithful instead of fixed fees for the services of the Church. Please be guided by this direction.

 

I trust that you will avail of these materials to slowly form our Catholic faithful on this laudable apostolic vision.

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely yours,

 

+SOCRATES B. VILLEGAS
