A one week Catholic Lenten Retreat For Men opens.

Fr Albert Smith, Men’s Retreat Master
As the Catholic Lenten Retreat for men opened at the Canefield Chapel, on Monday night, 26th March, under the theme, “Stewardship a Way of Life”, Retreat Master, Fr. Albert Smith from St Lucia extended an invitation to all men to come to this Lenten Retreat in preparation for making their Easter Duty.
The Canefield Retreat is for the four adjoining Parishes from St Anne (Mahaut), to Fatima (Newtown),  including St. Alphonsus (Pottersville ), and the Cathedral Parish. The Men’s Retreat will continue at Canefield Chapel on Tuesday night, 26th March starting at 6:30 pm, and will move to St Alphonsus Church, Pottersville for the following three nights, from Wednesday 27th to Friday March 29th.
The retreat starts at 6:30 each night, with the praying of The Rosary, and continues with Praise and Worship, collection of dry goods for the poor and needy, Homily, Testimonies, and special blessings. There will also be opportunities for Confession.
 Who is a Steward
In his homily Monday night, Retreat Master Fr Albert, in answer to the question “Who is a Steward?”, told the men that we are all Stewards, and we should look at everything we have as gifts from God. Fr Albert added, “Everything we have is a gift from God:- life, health, talents, they are gifts from God. Children, husband, wife, they are gifts from God. Land, money, house, car, they are all gifts from God. They are not ours. We are just Stewards, with a responsibility to care for them and use them to serve each other.”
Each night, Fr. Albert in his Homily will share with the men, simple ways to make the Retreat theme “Stewardship a Way of Life”, their way of life.

    Albert, the dictionary definition of the word ” steward” is ” one employed in a large household or estate to manage domestic concerns, such as supervising of servants, collection of rents, and keeping of accounts: i.e; shop steward;  or an employee on a ship, or an Aircraft!

    Now God words in 1 Cor: 4:1 God said. ” Let a man so account of us, as of the ministries of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God.

    2. Moreover it is required in stewards that a man be found faithful.

    All men are not  Stewards as you claim.

    Some of these and yourself pray to saints and the mother of God rather than praying to the Trinity.

    Guy you are not a steward of God, neither the poor souls you are talking that nonsense to. If you were a steward of God you would not allow anyone to call you father!

    What does the Bible say about that in the book of Matthew?

    Read  1 Peter 4:10 also.

      In 1 Peter 4: 10 it is written:

      ” As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

      And by the way you are nobody father: if you have children they are obligated to call you father; but God said called no man on earth father, neither Rabbi.

      All of Jesus disciples were called by their birth name, they had their wife’s and children:

      Even Peter your Roman Catholicism lied by saying Peter was your first pope had his wife and children!

      Where are yours?

      There is no such thing as lent where it pertains to God, that is false teaching, and propaganda that will take you and your followers to hell, such false doctrines are from Satan the devil!

    Fr. Albert Smith, you forgot to mention the “divine gifts” that we need from God if we are going to remain in a “Relationship” with Him through Christ Jesus, who is the Person of the Godhead.

    Those are the gifts through which we reveal God’s glory in Love, they are: “Joy, Peace, Goodness, Kindness, Patience, Endurance, Humility, and Self-control”; the Fruits of the Spirit. Without those gifts, mankind has no place with God, regardless of how big is the measure of his material assets.

    Your retreat will be meaningless to God if your theme is based on material assets, all of which can be here today and gone tomorrow.

    Take heed Fr. Smith that your Church cannot grow “spiritually” based on your human doctrines. For God is Spirit of Life, in Love and Holiness. Our Salvation comes by faith, through knowledge of Him in Christ Jesus. That knowledge comes through our study of His Word in the Bible, and by the teachings of His Holy Spirit.
