St. Scholastica’s College had taught me so many values that I can live up to as I grow and develop into a better human. One value that I’ve learnt fro this school year is the Benedictine Stewardship as an Expression of Faith, Hope, and Love which is us, Scholasticans, response to the Year of the Poor and the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
Stewardship is basically a value that teaches us how to be good stewards of the creation of God and our ecological environment. To be a good steward not only means having cleanliness on our surroundings, but also being compassionate to each and everyone of us. Many of us have heard the word, Steward, as in Flight Stewardess. But as you look deeper unto its meaning, it has this thought of us being able to take care of the nature. Apparently, some of us heard on the news, that there is this unconvenient truth that the climate is changing in a negative way and an effect of what we are doing to our mother earth which is the cause of global warming. On the other hand, another point-of-view is that we should be kind and gentle towards the poor. As you think of it, they are being deprived of the basic needs that they should have like food, shelter, and the like.
In conclusion, we should all be good stewards of the creation of God and be kind and gentle towards the poor.
