"I have compassion for the crowd,” Matthew 15, 29 
Our Lord Jesus Christ feels sorry for the people ! During the first days of Advent on 3 December , we visited with Csák János and V. Simon László one of the best known prisons in Budapest , the so called “ transit prison” establishment ! I spoke to simple folks with plain words , I told them that we are all waiting for Advent , and I believe that no matter how long their time of Advent is sooner or later Christmas will come and that they should not give up hope, because it is certain that for them as well the long awaited day will come when they’ll be free !
In Hungary close on 20,000 people are imprisoned , the angel will come to the prison as well this year !! I was looking at the people and even though I knew that some of them committed  terrible crimes my heart was filled by genuine sorrow ! Apart from the sorrow all along and even now the gnawing anger is there as well ! Yes I am angry with myself , the Church, the education system , because we were unable to tell the people clearly, nicely , intelligibly  the ten commandments written by God on the stone slab! If we could have taught these commandments , if we could have carved into their hearts our God’s guidelines to happiness then I doubt it if today we would be building prisons , instead  they could be transformed into museums !
These people should sue all tolerant, accepting ,liberal education systems who are accomplices  , and even their own parents as well, for the fact that they have to be languishing in prison now for 10-20-40 years in an area between 3-4 square meters ! I would bring every parent , teacher, actors who stand on a stage, politicians forming public opinions and naturally priests as well for a quiet time in Advent, and I would lock them at least for a day in one of the cells here , where if they stretch their arms out they can easily touch both parallel walls easily ! Yes every single  person who wants to address children , adults , should humbly move in at least for a day or so into such a prison , so that they can suddenly realise the weight of their own words , responsibilities, deeds/ actions.
We teach the rules of physics, chemistry , mathematics, spelling to our children ! Why don’t we explain nicely , clearly to the generation growing up God’s ten commandments ?! I believe that God’s precious showing the way should be included as a subject for matriculation , in the light of which we could live our earthly lives in power, health , peace.! 
In  the rules of the road they introduced seatbelts , and for children , babies special seats and even though at first people were angry , rebelling , but by now it was proven that just because of  these two rules much fewer  loose their lives , become disabled on the roads! The commandments, the control of freedom , are the wings of true freedom !! I believe that not only the prisons would become emptier if we paid  seriously more attention to the laws guiding our lives , but even the child protection establishments, the hospitals , the divorce courts, but even the pharmacies selling sedatives could all reduce the number of their employees .
As a good preparation for Advent learn by heart God’s precious ten commandments , in the meantime at least on the internet pay a visit to a prison !
Praying for freedom,
Father Csaba

After Jesus had left that place, he passed along the Sea of Galilee, and he went up the mountain, where he sat down. Great crowds came to him, bringing with them the lame, the maimed, the blind, the mute, and many others. They put them at his feet, and he cured them, so that the crowd was amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing. And they praised the God of Israel. Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, "I have compassion for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way." The disciples said to him, "Where are we to get enough bread in the desert to feed so great a crowd?" Jesus asked them, "How many loaves have you?" They said, "Seven, and a few small fish." Then ordering the crowd to sit down on the ground, he took the seven loaves and the fish; and after giving thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all of them ate and were filled; and they took up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full.

"At that same hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit... “ 
I arrived home to Déva from my missionary tour in Australia at 5 a.m. this morning . Before going to sleep I read today’s gospel . Even feeling sleepy it was good to read the beautiful story : as Jesus receives His 72 disciples returning from their missionary tour. Two thousand years ago these simple fishermen, shepherds , craftsmen , upon Jesus’ word set out as the first ones in the big, wide work for the benefit of their brethren . They carried no gold, silver in their satchels , but knocked on doors with a good word, love and together with the blessed “message” of the gospel they were welcomed everywhere with joy , love . Upon their words the sick were healed , the sinners repented , the world became better , cleaner , more beautiful. I tried to imagine as the disciples were sitting there around in a circle and excitedly , joyfully talk interrupting each other ! Jesus listening to them , smiling, with His face shining then stands up , everybody becomes silent listening to Him, and the Master rejoices , blesses the Heavenly Father for seeing fit to reveal to the “little ones “ the great secret : that it is good to be good , that with goodness , love people , the whole world can be made better . 
My thanks and gratitude to God for everything !! Upon my Master’s word I did not take with me neither silver nor gold  , or expensive presents , but with the Franciscan simplicity , poverty, with good word, love  in my backpack I set out on the journey ! The journey was long, I got tired , but now sitting in my room in the first light of the breaking dawn I discussed with my Master the long journey's many-many wonderful moments . I told my Lord that in His name even in far away land people gathered and accepted His teaching with prayerful love . I also recalled that even though seemingly, in the big , wide world everybody is chasing after money , I experienced that it is not the money, material goods that are lacking , because people are not really thirsting after the sparkling, shining material goods , but the way I saw it people are mostly desiring mountain-moving faith , hope that will make them ready to act, love that will inflame their hearts . 
I gave thanks with prayerful love for the many good people as well with whom I met in Australia , who undertook long journeys not only came so we could pray together, but also shared their homes  food, clothing , provided transport by car so that by planes , according to the plans I could get everywhere on time. ! During the tree weeks like this -with help- I travelled over an area larger than the whole of Europe ! Thanks to the good organisation , I can say , that I managed to visit most of the areas in Australia, where roughly 80-90000 Hungarians live , and I could meet those who came ! I also gave thanks for the two angels whom Providence gave me on this journey , Kalotay Eszter and Juhász Boglárka , who not only accompanied me , but organised everything well ahead of time by phone, via the internet with all concerned and thanks to this everything went really very well . My gratitude to them for everything !
I believe that our Lord Jesus Christ listened joyfully to yet another missionary tour over the past 2000 years ! I believe that even today He rejoices when He sees that His children gather as good sisters and brothers , in peace and love , and in the light of the Holy Gospel preparing for the feast of Christmas rethink/plan their lives ! We are small, weak , but what we could do humbly we did as well ! I wish all those, to whom Providence lead us , a further blessed, holy time of Advent from our Master , praising my God I retire to a well-earned rest ! 
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
My gratitude for everything ,

At that same hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, 'I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.'
Then turning to the disciples, Jesus said to them privately, 'Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.'

"many will come from east and west and will eat with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew  8, 11
I am sitting in the international  airport of Hong Kong . Around me the great multitude of people from the east and west ! I am looking at the faces, many , many calm , quiet people , older ones, young ones are waiting , talking, playing , reading , pressing the keys of their phones peacefully.! The aircrews are  all  from different  places who brought us over from Australia, looked after us  in the large aircraft all of them doing their jobs as real professionals who could not be faulted ! I am sitting quietly in the midst of this huge swirling crowd , on a bench , reading the holy scriptures ,  we all come from different parts of the world but I even surprise myself how at home I feel without without being anxious  or perturbed ,I feel at home in this world totally unknown to me , even my heart is full of prayerful love towards all who work around me, come and go , leading  their own lives ! Perhaps it will be like this when by the mercy of God we can sit down next to Abraham, Isaac , Jacob and the blessed Virgin Mother , the apostles , the greats of the New Testament in the Kingdom of Heaven ! 
I ask with prayerful love the blessing of my Creator on all travellers , for the people working at this huge airport as well! I pray also that all of us present here may find home in the kingdom of heaven as well ! 
With love,

When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, appealing to him and saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralysed, in terrible distress." And he said to him, "I will come and cure him." The centurion answered, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes, and to another, 'Come,' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this,' and the slave does it." When Jesus heard him, he was amazed and said to those who followed him, "Truly I tell you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith. I tell you, many will come from east and west and will eat with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.

"Beware that you are not led astray !” Luke 21,5
Unfortunately our world is infected by fear !!  Most of the films shown in the movies , on television is about disasters , that mankind just manages to survive !! But  the politicians, scientists , often we priests have a tendency to overdramatise the reality and at times like this we have the  dark vision  of an impending end of the world!
In different historical ages of our world there were times when the sea level was that low , that one could walk  from the shores of Australia to Tasmania situated 200 kms away . But when I was in Egypt , they showed that the present water level of the sea compared to previous ones that were about a 100 meters higher , the greater part  of today's barren, lifeless desert was under water , from which mountains have risen , fertile islands ! Our world is alive , but it has been changing continuously and this change is unstoppable , ongoing ! No matter how long the hot summer is autumn will come , and whoever does not get ready for winter surely they will be cold ! To the geological , political, social changes one has to get ready wisely, flexibly , with enduring work and not panicking , shouting about the end of the world, panicking, frightening our children and ourselves !
Towards the end of the Church’s year , the writings from the holy scripture show the final events in gloomy colours , but we do not have to carve wooden crosses , but by the light of the Advent candles we should have to  get cradles, cots ready. !! I encourage , reassure everybody to calmly buy long-life milk , and do the necessary autumn work in the yard , since every   Christian holding the Heavenly Father’s hand has to get ready for  the  spring to come and not for the catastrophe of the end of the world that will sweep away everything! 
With love ,

When some were speaking about the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts dedicated to God, Jesus said, "As for these things that you see, the days will come when not one stone will be left upon another; all will be thrown down." They asked him, "Teacher, when will this be, and what will be the sign that this is about to take place?" And he said, "Beware that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name and say, 'I am he!' and, 'The time is near!' Do not go after them. "When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end will not follow immediately." Then he said to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and plagues; and there will be dreadful portents and great signs from heaven."

"Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15, 12.
We can place on the collection plates material goods, money , more or less , but that does not hurt as much when we give from ourselves to our brethren with love ! This time I would like to put on the centerstage those who coming  from Australia “give part of themselves “ with love to the Transylvanian orphaned children ! 
Dear Éva came from Brisbane a big city of two million people , visited us then with her husband and daughter  made the decision to come as a voluntary worker for a year ! This young mother has a very nice voice , she is  trained as a kindergarten teacher and over a year she came day after day , to teach the children in difficult situation to to read, write, behave , but also took a fair share of the work around the house, and also taught the children of Máréfalva many nice folksongs ! By the end of the year there was a lot of crying but they had to return to Australia ! In the meantime the correspondence continued and after a year aunty Éva and her dear  family returned yet for another year. ! Yes this kind family did not give the two coins but two years from their lives to our children ! I believe that these two years will be something that will not be destroyed by rust or eaten by moth , as Éva said it this was the most beautiful 2 years of their lives and certainly the memories will last for eternal life ! 
From Australia thank God not only Éva and family came but many others. Kati néni became the guardian angel of the kindergarten in Déva . But from among all the kindhearted Hungarians from Australia first and foremost I have to mention dear Kalotay Eszter , who came from Sydney as a dental surgeon by this time 10 years ago !! Initially only for a couple of months , but by now spends 8-9 months every year in Transylvania , and only after that did she return to her grown up beautiful family of three children who left the family nest ! Yes Eszter as a blessed grandmother gives herself to the orphaned children ! She gives herself patiently , kindheartedly because she loves God very much and her people from which she also descended from! 
During the past 25 years , in the eyes of God the most precious gift is that part of our lives , that we kindheartedly gave our Creator following the example of Saint Joseph to the children entrusted into our care ! On my part I also became much richer on seeing that our brethren from near or far how unselfishly are pouring the moments , days , years of their lives in the name of God for our children in difficulties , trouble ! I pray for the growing up young generation may also have the courage   for sharing God’s most precious gift , time out of love , with love with their fellow human beings .
With a grateful heart for every moment that you gave kindheartedly to our children ,

Jesus looked up and saw rich people putting their gifts into the treasury; he also saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. He said, "Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them; for all of them have contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in all she had to live on."

Saint Francis sets out to a holy war but in a  vision in a dream in Spoleto Christ asks him :” “Tell me Francis who is greater the Master or the servant ?” To Francis’ answer the Master is the greater -He asks further questions : “But then why do you want serve the servant and why not the Master ? “ Saint Francis decides by the side of of Christ, so Christ becomes Francis’ King!
We could continue on with the greats of the Old Testament and the New Testament , because all those who are called, addressed by Christ,the ones lead by God , who obediently follow the Creator’s holy will, in their lives God’s Kingdom has already arrived , they are the saints to whom we look up because Christ is already their King!
Who is leading me in my words, decisions ? My  grievances , anxieties , my greedy, sinful desires, or other’s influence or my own intoxication with power ? Whose is the last word in my life ? Lets pray this day to ask our Lord Jesus Christ to free us from all the worldly  sinful desires and to lead me with His holy will on the way of love, goodness , mercy ! Lets ask Christ to be our King!

Then Pilate entered the headquarters again, summoned Jesus, and asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" Jesus answered, "Do you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?" Pilate replied, "I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?" Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here." Pilate asked him, "So you are a king?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice."

In the land of Australia sitting underneath  a huge wild fig tree  I was thinking about mortality ! With my eyes closed I could feel the more than hundred years old tree, the huge foliage peacefully covered me as the the evening quietly descends and fills the surrounding , the same way my spirit was filled by infinite calmness ! How fragile is a small tree , and it is using  using all opportunities by life , does what it has to do day after day , grows , sprinting new leaves , slander branches trying to embrace the sky ! Years, decades, centuries come and it is carrying quietly every blessed day, its many , many leaves just like a mother her child nourishing it with goodness , gently carrying it and glorifying its Creator by its existence, life-giving work !
"But about that day or hour no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Mark 13, 32 We do not know when the whistle will sound that the match called life will be called off , but whilst we are on the playing field we have to keep on trying ! Thi tree is not frightened by the sight od the axe but till the last moments of its existence it is carrying its vast foliage ! I am convinced that we should be doing the same in the time given to js ! To love each other as brethren , raising our children up high , worshipping God praising our Creator with our existence day after day !! We should live without fear in harmony , carry out our duties quietly and when the last trumpet sounds , then  we can put down our tools from our hands and grasping  the hands of our Creator we will get going , where the One leading us is the One who gave His life for us on the cross !
With love ,

'But in those days, after that suffering,
the sun will be darkened,
and the moon will not give its light,
and the stars will be falling from heaven,
and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
Then they will see "the Son of Man coming in clouds" with great power and glory. Then he will send out the angels, and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.
'From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
'But about that day or hour no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

How grateful am I ? For all that I have received , for who I am ,am I capable to give heartfelt thanks with satisfied heart !! Here in Australia, thanks to a kind woman from Nagyszalonta  who dedicated her life to a  a Wildlife Protection Centre , and because of her   invitation I managed to get to a wild life sanctuary for koalas! Here I made the attached film about this sweet creature , that has nothing to do with bears but the first white settlers of the country called it mistakenly like that! The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is a native of Australia a marsupial that is a “vegetarian” animal , the only representative of the family of koalas . The word koala comes from the language of the Aboriginal people, meaning “non-drinker”.
Looking at this little hairy creature , fur ball wearing its warmest outfit by the way here where there is no snow and I was thinking about God’s caring goodness !! This animal only eats a certain type of eucalyptus leaves , getting the necessary  water from it , a little energy that is enough for it to be  awake for only four hours a day. The digestion of these fibrous hard leaves need about 10 days , whilst on the tip of the branches they are capable of sleeping 20 hours a day in the little shade !! 
God’s caring goodness marked a path in the life of all of us !  How different is the course of life of other  creatures than for us human beings , and yet visibly they are happy , joyous , quietly living their own simple life ! And how much can I accept all that Providence saw fit to offer me ? Do I have gratitude and thanks  when I sit down at a table ladder with  all that tasty, well prepared food ! I tried eating the eucalyptus leaf , but how can I scythe little koala’s diet did not quite work out , I could not eat one single leaf ! 
I believe that we not only  to be grateful for , if we recover from a serious illness but every single minute of our life the flower of happiness should be blooming ! Joy, gratitude should be our everyday wear , so they should recognise us Christians , that we glorify with glad joy our loving heavenly Father !! Day after day doing our work we should return to our Redeemer with heart filled with gladness , Jesus Christ and with prayerful love glorify God ! 
With my heart filled with gratitude ,

On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, they called out, saying, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!" When he saw them, he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the priests." And as they went, they were made clean. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. He prostrated himself at Jesus' feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus asked, "Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner? "Then he said to him, "Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well."

In Sydney we went to the local botanical garden. We were amazed by the beauty of the various plants, bushes, and trees. Each was different and wonderful in its own way, fulfilling its duties according to the laws coded into it: it grows, blooms in a pageantry of colours, produces flowers and fruit; then it sheds its petals which slowly decompose in the soil. As lowly servants, they all complete their tasks quietly, without seeking applause, pay, or gratitude – they simply live… until they die.
 How many colours and forms delighting the eye are shining below God’s blessed sky! How good it would be to learn from these plants and flowers, with roots planted in the ground to reach up and hug the blue heavens, proclaiming our Creator’s majesty! And then, when the time comes, to gently surrender the field to those who would come after us, so they too may proclaim in their own mass of colour and form, and in their own way, God’s infinite love for us.

Jesus said to his disciples, "Who among you would say to your slave who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, 'Come here at once and take your place at the table'? Would you not rather say to him, 'Prepare supper for me, put on your apron and serve me while I eat and drink; later you may eat and drink'? Do you thank the slave for doing what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that you were ordered to do, say, 'We are worthless slaves; we have done only what we ought to have done!'"

In Sydney I was able to visit The Australian National Maritime Museum , where one can find for instance the sailing boat of James Craig from the 19th century, as the original replica of Captain James Cook’s ship the Endeavour in her original size as well. 
In all the boy’s adventure books the ships appear , and the series of the action packed voyages !! The sailing boat appearing in the picture was made  of wood  -according to the  museum’s data - it went around the world twelve times ! How much faith was needed that during long months , years alone, without internet connection one crosses the infinite ocean ? How many storms, difficulties happened to this ancient vessel , that nowadays nicely renovated, lacquered is swaying on the peaceful waters of the bay , whilst its companions are quietly resting in their watery graves !? I was standing in front of these respectable, beautiful sailing boats and I was pondering whether the faith of the man of today , his enterprising spirit , his endurance, stamina , stubbornness can it be measured compared with that of our predecessors ??
For me this visit at the museum , beyond the objects of the exhibition , was also an insight into the manly power of ones willing to face everything , the bravery that surfaced in life threatening difficulties , into the greatness of man pushing the boundaries of nature to its limits as well !! I admired the wise designing work of the engineers , that people almost at the level of masters exactingly carried out working with wood , iron ore , fitted out  with the ropes, sails  made out of natural materials , then trusting in God’s caring, loving goodness with living faith on the deck set out towards unknown territories , lands ! It is possible that the sailors drank , committed sins inconceivable for us , but with corouge, determination in difficult conditions , tenability lead these hand-built vessels , on the stormy oceans of the world guided them into the safety of the harbours of far away parts of the world and this is of such a value  that I respectfully can bow my head before it. 
May God grant us that the man of the XXIst century  as well can solve  the seemingly impossible tasks of this day and age with such determination, persistent faith, bravery , inventiveness !!
With respect ,

Jesus said to his disciples, 'Occasions for stumbling are bound to come, but woe to anyone by whom they come! It would be better for you if a millstone were hung around your neck and you were thrown into the sea than for you to cause one of these little ones to stumble. Be on your guard! If another disciple sins, you must rebuke the offender, and if there is repentance, you must forgive. And if the same person sins against you seven times a day, and turns back to you seven times and says, "I repent", you must forgive.' The apostles said to the Lord, 'Increase our faith!' The Lord replied, 'If you had faith the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, "Be uprooted and planted in the sea", and it would obey you.

It is not only money you can give to God , but from within yourself , from your time also to your Creator !! In the midst of running around you take out your rosary beads and in the stillness you can recite a prayer , or read part of the scripture , perhaps you sit inside a church in front of the blessed Eucharist and then you really gave a gift to your Creator from what is the most precious for you , a few minutes from your life !! 
I was talking with  a few young people who have been volunteers at our Foundations ! They gave a few days, few weeks to the needy children , and though them to Christ ! ! I believe that Christ is not looking at the value of the work given as a gift of your own time, it maybe that your efforts are only worth two coins but I am convinced that if you give kind heartedly, then in the eyes of God  your every minute is a  precious gift that will last, remain for eternal life!
Lets dare to take on voluntary service , lets want to give time, energy to the One from Whom we received everything the we are , and all that we possessed as a gif !!

As he taught, he said, ‘Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and to be greeted with respect in the market-places, and to have the best seats in the synagogues and places of honour at banquets! They devour widows’ houses and for the sake of appearance say long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.’
He sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which are worth a penny. Then he called his disciples and said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.’
Mark 12:38-44
