This talk was originally given for a Stewardship Conference held in the Diocese of Calgary in June 2015. It explores the relationship between Stewardship and the call to the New Evangelization. Beginning with a brief reflection on how St. Peter and his successors are to be identified as the Chief Steward of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, this talk then explores how Popes St. John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis have all called the Church to the mission of stewardship in the midst of the New Evangelization, first and foremost through their own witnesses as stewards in the Church. Each of these Popes offer us valuable insights into how we can be engaged in the work of stewardship and in doing so allow the New Evangelization to flourish in our parishes, families and all facets of human activity.
