Are we ascetics?

Christ

From The Struggle for Virtue by Archbishop Averky

The true ascetic strives to uproot from his soul evil dispositions, evil habits, and evil will, and in their place to plant and firmly inculcate good dispositions, good habits and good will. This is the primary labor-difficult to the point of drawing blood-or struggle of the true ascetic.

Think about your daily struggle and personal battle and relate this to Stewardship and the use of your Time, Talents and Treasures. Does your effort here focus on the good?
