DMF 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Here in the Diocese of Pueblo, we have positioned ourselves to become the
Diocese of the Little Way, through the inspiration and intercession of our patronesses, St. Therese of the Child Jesus and Our Lady of Guadalupe. In becoming the Diocese of the Little Way, we begin our response to the great needs of our faithful in little ways. Please make no mistake, this is not an easy path to go; this is not a shortcut around our issues, but rather, a way to elevate our standards of conversion to the message of the Gospel with mutual respect and accountability to each other on that journey.

Taking these steps together as the Diocese of the Little Way encourages us to do
one more little thing for the Kingdom; saying one more Hail Mary, helping one more
person, giving one more smile. By doing one more little thing each day, we can start
to do some really powerful things together. Your gift to the Diocesan Ministry Fund helps to reflect Christ’s
love to those whose lives are impacted by the ministries and services of this Diocese.

With the gifts of humility and charity, treasure the things we can do, all of us together living the life
the Lord calls us to live. We must first admit and accept that “I cannot overcome the trials of life and
become who I am meant to be, on my own.” And second, with total confidence in His merciful love, pray,
“Jesus, please come and help me by making all things possible.” When these two actions become the
spiritual air that I daily breathe, then I am living the Little Way.

Each of us is being called to participate by embracing St. Therese’s inspiring path:

With all my heart, I will…

R Recognize my littleness,
O Offer everything to Jesus with confidence,
S Surrender to His Merciful Love, and
E Evangelize others to do the same!

We become branded and bonded together with our sister, St. Therese, in Jesus and we begin to act
together in Faith, Hope, and Charity as God’s holy people. Your support to the DMF supports our many
efforts across our diocese.

Without your generous support, we would not have all the ministries we have today. Please make
your commitment to the DMF in keeping in mind the spirit of St. Therese, “I will spend my heaven doing
good on earth.” Please know, your gift, your generosity is making an impact in a big way. Thank you for your
participation in the DMF and may God bless us all on our way to becoming the Diocese of the Little Way,
after one of God’s favorite children, St. Therese, the Little Flower.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Most Rev. Stephen J. Berg
