Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel Tuesday 23 April 2019.
"…..go to my brothers and say to them..” John 20, 18
Jesus is asking one thing from us , to spread the news, the good news, hope , consolation to our brothers !! This was the task of Mary Magdalene , but also the task of apostles as well and Jesus Christ is asking the same from us as well , lets go with trust , love and in His name and lets console those who are sad, lets encourage the ones in despair , lets bring faith, hope , love into the world , the same way as God’s servant Bishop Márton Áron did as well !! Come on lets get going , the love of Christ is hastening us !!
Your lesser brother ,

The Word of God
But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb. As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb; and she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had been lying, one at the head and the other at the feet. They said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?" She said to them, "They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him." When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking for?" Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, "Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away." Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned and said to him in Hebrew, "Rabbouni!" (which means Teacher). Jesus said to her, "Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'" Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord"; and she told them that he had said these things to her.
