The Gift of Time, Talent, and Treasure

August 14

“We have to uphold the right of all men to live, to own what is necessary to lead a dignified existence, to work and to rest, to choose a particular state in life, to form a home, to bring children into the world within marriage and to be allowed to educate them, to pass peacefully through times of sickness and old age, to have access to culture, to join with other citizens to achieve legitimate ends, and, above all, to enjoy the right to know and love God in perfect liberty.”
  -St. Josemaria Escriva
Today’s Reflection:
Legal justice requires an active participation in works of social justice–issues that affect the common good–and it requires a gift of time, talent, and treasure to those activities that speak for the poor, the weak, the disenfranchised, and the forgotten.
In prayerfully observing your life currently, where is participation missing–in the gift of time, talent, or treasure?  How is God calling you to share more of yourself?
