God cannot make decisions instead of us by what is right, good. Christ shines , gives us light, hope , strength , can even lead us , can deepen our faith , but we have to make the decisions . Our eternal life is the fruit of our own decisions .
The rain gets into the depth of the earth through the muddy clay and surfaces again as a crystal clean spring, to quench our thirst , so the priest’s unworthiness does not prevent him, for Christ acting through him at the time of delivering the sacraments .
Jesus calls all sorts of people , not only the wise ones , the good ones , the gentle ones , often such people as well who are coming from "deep waters” perhaps because they will be more considerate, understanding towards their sinful brothers.
Over the two thousand years no more beautiful concept or challenge was placed in front of the living man than the family . This way of life was sanctified by Jesus Christ Himself by living in a family for over thirty years .
The priest has a kingly duty as well. Jesus Christ dominated also , in the first place over Himself. He reigned in a way , that as a servant He was capable of washing the apostles’ feet. Amongst them Judas was also present in whose pocket by then the traitor’s money was already jingling and of course He washed his feet as well , He could sit down at the same table , what’s more He offered kindly to him a delicious morsel of food .
I believe in the power of prayer : I experienced it many times that in impossible, hopeless situations God heard our prayers. Jesus Himself said : Whatever you ask jointly in my name you will receive !
There are no two similar people in the world, our children are God’s unique , unrepeatable precious miracles ! They are carrying the answers to our questions , worries , they are the "saplings emerging from the ground" of our hopes planted in the tomorrows ! None of us know what did our Heavenly Father hide as a gift into their satchels ! As long as there are children there is hope ! With trust, with a curious heart lets stand by them and lets help keep opening the gifts brought by them, but our Creator meant for all of us.
If I , even though I am a sinful person , yet I am capable of loving our children , then how much more can our heavenly Father love us. Naturally He does not withdraw sulking if we get ourselves into hot water , He even loves us then and is kind towards us , even if our relation with Him is not unclouded .
