" What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” Mark 8,36
Let us consider it how much does selfishness and unselfishness effect my thoughts, my words , my decisions , my everyday deeds !! Do our own benefits , what is good for us , our goals , our imaginations can turn us away from our family , loved ones , brethren, even our own people , our Church and push us into such an immeasurable solitude that can only sweep our spirit into damnation! The road leading to hell is paved by good intentions ! The evil one wanting to destroy the pure joy of your heart , just like the good fisherman , put a valuable, interesting bait on the hook ,but he is not interested in the welfare of the fish , but what it gets out of it leads it on. !! For this reason before you make a decision flyer your plans , decisions have to be carefully checked and once you removed your selfish desires which are for your benefit , it is only then that you should make your plans be fulfilled !! 
With love,

Now large crowds were travelling with him; and he turned and said to them, 'Whoever comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even life itself, cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it will begin to ridicule him, saying, "This fellow began to build and was not able to finish." Or what king, going out to wage war against another king, will not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one who comes against him with twenty thousand? If he cannot, then, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for the terms of peace. So therefore, none of you can become my disciple if you do not give up all your possessions.

I ask you with prayerful love , love each other very , very much !Why did not people attend the wedding feast ? Because their own business was more important , than the one who invited them to the wedding feast! In one word : They did not love , they were selfish ! Love is such a leaven , that makes the flour into bread , like the mortar that turns the brick into a home , love makes life , that from our own cells makes tissues , organs, thoughts, desires , in one word gives birth to man in this world!
Love is that force , that by sorting out the pieces of a puzzle is capable from the rubble to form a picture ,changes   people into a community, a nation , that from disorganised falling apart ruins can create a new world , from chaos order , a liveable cosmos ! Love can build from  hatred , war , the valley of tears  the precious Kingdom of God ! 
The rushing world makes us selfish , sullies us by sin , breaks up  our communities , that is why consciously even morning I should quieten down and with great zeal -just like the  flickering flame in the furnace- rekindle the genuine love in my heart ! Day after day one has to revive our adoring , fiery devotion towards God , and towards the creations the genuine , life-giving love in our hearts !
Stumbling in the school of love ,

One of the dinner guests, on hearing this, said to Jesus, 'Blessed is anyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!' Then Jesus said to him, 'Someone gave a great dinner and invited many. At the time for the dinner he sent his slave to say to those who had been invited, "Come; for everything is ready now." But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, "I have bought a piece of land, and I must go out and see it; please accept my apologies." Another said, "I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to try them out; please accept my apologies." Another said, "I have just been married, and therefore I cannot come." So the slave returned and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and said to his slave, "Go out at once into the streets and lanes of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame." And the slave said, "Sir, what you ordered has been done, and there is still room." Then the master said to the slave, "Go out into the roads and lanes, and compel people to come in, so that my house may be filled. For I tell you, none of those who were invited will taste my dinner." '

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." 39   ‘Love your neighbour as yourself" Matthew 22, 37-39
The basic , most important commandment of our Christian faith , is the main commandment !! The commandment has to be learnt by heart and it has to be kept !! I ask you lovingly to memorise these two sentences and may these precious lines be our only guide, our main compass in all our decisions , words , in every minute of our lives ! Whatever fits into this commandment is good, we can think , do and say it freely , whatever does not fit into it is sinful, it destroys , destructs , kills !!
It is simple, one can adhere to it , this is our way !!

One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, 'Which commandment is the first of all?' Jesus answered, 'The first is, "Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength." The second is this, "You shall love your neighbour as yourself." There is no other commandment greater than these.' Then the scribe said to him, 'You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that "he is one, and besides him there is no other"; and "to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength", and "to love one's neighbour as oneself", — this is much more important than all whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices.' When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, 'You are not far from the kingdom of God.' After that no one dared to ask him any question.

The decades, the centuries, the millenniums are passing , but only faith is capable of providing calming answers to the real secrets  of our existence ! Science has developed incredibly a lot , man is researching the secrets of the tiniest atoms in awesome particle-accelerators , and with the giant telescopes sent into space it is studying the huge galaxies of the universe . We reached staggering results, new discoveries on a daily basis throws  the world into a fever , but for the final questions of life we cannot find the answer ! It is awesome how much today’s biologists know about mankind, how  our cells , genes work, we are progressing but every  discovery brings with it newer and newer questions : As to who we are  wherefrom and towards where are we heading ? Is there any point , purpose to all this  bustling ! What’s the final meaning of our existence ?
We are standing awestruck in front of the beauty of our world , its miraculous complexity, seeing its unimaginable size , but what we can see is that facing the final things even the wisest scientists , the real great artists , or the talk of the politicians knowing the resources of the world is only stuttering ! Many many answers have been given by the greats of humanity to our questions , but amongst the dawning , inflaming and extinguishing , burning out answers only Christ’s wise teaching can calm down humanity even today by its brilliant light ! That is why I bow my head in front of my redeeming Lord , with my heart filled by hope drifting into the infinity , waiting very humbly till He calls my name and offers me a place at the foot  of His table !
With love,

On one occasion when Jesus was going to the house of a leader of the Pharisees to eat a meal on the sabbath, they were watching him closely. When he noticed how the guests chose the places of honour, he told them a parable. "When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet, do not sit down at the place of honour, in case someone more distinguished than you has been invited by your host; and the host who invited both of you may come and say to you, 'Give this person your place,' and then in disgrace you would start to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit down at the lowest place, so that when your host comes, he may say to you, 'Friend, move up higher'; then you will be honoured in the presence of all who sit at the table with you. For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted."

With prayerful love today, 2 November we are going to Körösbánya with the children . In Transylvania children  from classes I-IV have autumn vacation. The weather is nice and we are  going to this hidden little  village on the slopes of the Western Carpathian mountains !!
Once they used to mine for gold  here, many Hungarians lived in this land , there is a nice gothic church here and two cemeteries that are overgrown by bushes mostly ! In the nice autumn weather we would like to say a holy mass starting at 11 am with our children , for our dearly departed ! Will try to have a holy mass beamed through  the internet as well,  so those who would like to pray with us can do so!
We the living ones and those who have died are one people , we belong to God’s big family !! They help us , we help them with love and prayer ! Come lets take one another’s hands and ask for God’s blessing upon our world , and all who have lived here and are still living here !

Truly, truly, I say to you,whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.  For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself.  And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man.  Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice  and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment.

 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15, 11
God does not want us to live our lives as fakirs , He as our loving heavenly Father would like to take us in to His trinitarian community of love! Jesus not only wants to share with us His joy , but as a good teacher He is also showing us then way leading to happiness! It may be that this way is narrow and  steep , but many have travelled this road ahead of us , and it is worthwhile reading the list of the saints ! The Church has no two saints who are identical , they were all individual characters , journeying their ow way as the creator God lead their steps ! What is common in all of them that only only the Church calls the blessed , but indeed they were blessed in their life-times as well , and we profess with faith , that after their death they all were rewarded by eternal happiness ! At the bottom of our hearts we also are yearning for joy, to be blessed , trustingly lets set out on the way that Christ showed us , on the road that is well trodden by God’s saints who went ahead of us ! As we can see from the Holy Scripture, that the evil spirit would also “like” to make Christ blessed and using the same tools us as well , but he is not offering real happiness when he wants to convince us to consume, possess and try to seize power ! These “ joys “ that satan offers us have never made people happy yet ! The way of the evil one , no matter how attractive it seems , is a dead-end street , that leads nowhere , only causes suffering , peril to those naive people whom the tempter can trick!! 
Let us decide by the side of Christ , lets stretch out our hands to towards the pure, permanent joys that He offered , and lets get going in the way of the Saints leading to joy, happiness!
With hope,

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying: 
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

"people will come from east and west, from north and south, and will eat in the kingdom of God. “ Luke 13, 30
In 1993 children started coming from the west, the north and from the south , back in those days we were very poor , we had nothing , we only had one church , where we loved God and each other very much !! Even the poorest man is not poor , if he can love and live being loved , that is why in our child protection homes right from the start based on the teaching of Christ we tried to make it into a community of love ! The only pedagogical tool right up to today , is the unselfish love as Jesus gave us as an example ! I am convinced that all our success stems from the teaching of our Master about love ! Every smiling child of ours with a clear glance , our former students who left after finishing school , managing with honest work , establishing nice families are the living gold reserves of Christ’s teaching ! Those 6000 children we took in , raised in our homes , are living proof that the teaching of the Gospel is true , can be lived, it is such a road that can be travelled on, that not only lifts up , sanctifies , makes happy the children , but us adults as well who work with them ! Our failures cannot be blamed on the lack of funds, the interference of the authorities , but on the diminishing of love and this will always be responsible for that ! I can honestly say that I was happy during the past 25 years and I am also happy today , because despite all my weaknesses I can live in a community of love with the Holy Trinity, because in a nice family we are here for one another ! 
I believe in the final victory of love ,

Jesus went through one town and village after another, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. Someone asked him, 'Lord, will only a few be saved?' He said to them, 'Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. When once the owner of the house has got up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying, "Lord, open to us", then in reply he will say to you, "I do not know where you come from." Then you will begin to say, "We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets." But he will say, "I do not know where you come from; go away from me, all you evildoers!" There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrown out. Then people will come from east and west, from north and south, and will eat in the kingdom of God. Indeed, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.'

According to many the greatest tragedy of the man of the XXI. century , but I personally feel it could even be his luck as well , that one ran out of the “hopes" of this world! Especially starting from the time of the Renaissance did the lights of the deceptive kingdom of heaven of this world shine here and there , again and again !  Europe was resounding from the shouts of the discoverers : a new world is ahead of us Eldorado ! Then came the slogans :Liberty, Brotherhood , Equality ! Many gave their lives for the great French revolution because they believed that within an arms-length the golden age awaits them ! Then came new ideologies , communism, fascism , liberalism ! They promised to the starry eyed people that an all.changing revolution technical, industrial, rural , when no longer will anybody have to work as the machines will take over the work from people ! During the last centuries there were already : medical, educational, cultural, sexual revolutions and who could list exactly how many more ! All these “redeeming dreams” came true many just passed , and a few of the the goals that came true became woven into the fabric of society , but by now many feel that all this is too little , and the “ hope” on this worldly level has ran out ! 
Although having discovered all liveable part of this world , we live in an open society , a lot survive even without working , education is available to anybody at any level, the doctors have tripled life expectancy threefold , ( the average age  was under thirty years two thousand years ago ) and yet there is a lot of sadness, tension in people. Today we have the right to do whatever we want with our bodies , sexual aberrations are often looked upon as “virtues" by many , the consequences of those , like a conceived life can just be “bravely” thrown away ! Yes , slowly man has demolished all barriers , but somehow the happy golden age does not really want to shine , about the existence of which in our hearts a flaming desire is prophetic for us ! There deep down we feel that we desire more than justvthis , and this thirst , hunger is driving, pursuing all of us !
Jesus Christ often speaks of the Kingdom of God !! He asks us that day after day we pray His words: “YOUR KINGDOM COME”!” During the past millennia lived and with many-many  members of today’s Church together I profess , that the building of the Kingdom of God is the most wonderful goal facing mankind ! This dream that was formulated by Christ , the Kingdom of Love ,  is my  dream as well,and I profess it with faith  that this the the dream that should be pinned to the banner of the XXI century ! What is 
awesome about this that this “ revolution” does not have to be carried out just by ourselves , since the Leader of the revolution is God Himself . Two thousand years ago Jesus spoke us as in such a way : “ “ Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in” Book of Revelation 3,20 In this revolution we can count on the guidance of the gentle, merciful God wanting to lead us according by our consciences ! I believe that this is the mustard seed , the gentle word of our conscience present in the life of all of us and this conscious, willing conversion , the gently sprinkling warm rain of prayer , will start its growth, unfolds it in our life, in our society ! There is no need to create a new world , as God’s Kingdom is the leaven , that is capable , without replacing us, to “raise” us to a new , quality life, leading us ! Let Christ’s beautiful thought , just like the leaven to mingle with us and around us and finish the work started two thousand years ago ! Lets build the beautiful, peaceful simple kingdom of God’s children !!

Jesus said, "What is the kingdom of God like? And to what should I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in the garden; it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches." And again he said, "To what should I compare the kingdom of God? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened."

“Hypocrites!" Luke 13,10
Jesus undertakes the confrontation! ! He dares to face the incorrect ,evil, sinful tasks, dares to call it as it really is ! He not only tries to gather people ,like the hens her chicks, seeing  the aftermath of the events  He not only gets down on His knees crying, praying before the walls of of Jerusalem, but sincerely , with harsh words like a sharp bladed sickle with a clear speech names those sins that cause the destruction, ruin of the individual and communities !
Today’s man is unbelievably tolerant regarding sinful acts, often we look the other way and do as though we would not even notice the faults , the missed opportunities , sins , in fact at times we even cover up for each other ! We do not dare to look into each other's eye and with brotherly love to bring to their attention, to warn our companions ! We don’t dare to speak up loudly , clearly , that all that you plan, do , that is no good , it is meaningless , sinful, it only serves your ambitions, your lust for power ! This falls meant consideration , tact is the basis of lots os suffering, misery!
Let’s learn from Christ, let’s be willing , daring to talk to each other about the shortcomings , the negligence , sins as well ! Let’s dare to lead , guide one another with patient love to goodness, calm , peaceful waters ! In the schools, at our workplace , but even in the different stratas of our community lets  dare to  call upon our truant, negligent, slandering, scandal-mongering , misappropriating, aggressive companions ,calmly, patiently lead them on th the way of brotherly love ! Lets help each other to escape from the web of sin ! Supporting one another to live our lives freely , in the dignity as children of God !!

Now Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. And just then there appeared a woman with a spirit that had crippled her for eighteen years. She was bent over and was quite unable to stand up straight. When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, "Woman, you are set free from your ailment." When he laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began praising God. But the leader of the synagogue, indignant because Jesus had cured on the sabbath, kept saying to the crowd, "There are six days on which work ought to be done; come on those days and be cured, and not on the sabbath day." But the Lord answered him and said, "You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger, and lead it away to give it water? And ought not this woman, a daughter of Abraham whom Satan bound for eighteen long years, be set free from this bondage on the sabbath day?" When he said this, all his opponents were put to shame; and the entire crowd was rejoicing at all the wonderful things that he was doing.

"he came looking for fruit on it”... Luke 13,1
It is a joy to see this nice young girl , who got ready for holy mass , wants to serve , be an altar server , and now she is calmly awaiting for the bell marking the beginning of the holy mass !! I admire those of our children , who regularly go to be altar servers , over several years they give God every week 1-2 hours of their lives  freely , because it is good to be good, to do good, it is good to produce the nice fruit of  serving love !
People today expect to be paid for everything, they became pragmatic and they believe that the only successes, achievements that are  worthwhile living for are the ones that can be converted into money !! For many unfortunately the only worthwhile goal living for on this earth is the maximisation of their profit ! Is it worth it or not ? This is the fundamental question , the only compass by which selfish people are getting their bearings in the everyday life !! The greedy thinking, selfishness is a murderous dead-end street , that lead to the destruction of our world , and this is not the way of Jesus Christ !!
Jesus asks us "Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5,48 You can ask the question what is our heavenly Father like ?" your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good. .”Mathew 5, 45 God loves , with His caring goodness keeps alive the good and the evil equally ! God loves the man blessed by freewill without a charge ! In reality everything that is of value in our lives , our sheer existence , our health , our nice families , our talents are all, but all God’s free gifts ! One or more good friends , a door that opens wide unexpectedly in front of us , an opportunity that leads us into the future are all God’s precious gifts ! Our beloved homeland  where from a stream you can raise a glass of fresh water to your lips , or the crunchy apple in the summer into which you can bite into healthily , , or the tasty bunch of grapes , everything is a gift just like that nice flower, that a young person in love hands over to you with a shining face ! Yes God presents us with exquisite fruits , that we just accept without giving it a second thought ! Lets stop just for a moment and think about what fruit did I bear until now just out of love for my caring, kindhearted GoD!  Am I capable at all just to give my God or my brethren an hour or so just out of love ? If my Creator searches for fruits of love  in my life , what will He find ?
Come lets produce the beautiful fruits of love for our caring , kind-hearted God !
With the  pure joy of good deeds,

At that very time there were some present who told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. He asked them, ‘Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were worse sinners than all other Galileans? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as they did. Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them-do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others living in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish just as they did.'
Then he told this parable: ‘A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and found none. So he said to the gardener, "See here! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil?" He replied, "Sir, let it alone for one more year, until I dig round it and put manure on it. If it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down." '

Lets  learn to wait for our Lord from the wild cheery tree !! I took these two photos a week apart ! The walnut tree on the right hand side is golden yellow , the wild cherry on the left side is green ! A week passed the golden yellow garment of the walnut tree faded, shrunk , became black , and the leaves of the wild cherry tree are dressed in the splendour of autumn, so that within a few days the cold autumn will also rob it from all of its magic !!
What surprised me was living through the  rapid succession of presence of the unchanged, constant in the changes! Nothing is permanent, nothing is everlasting , but despite these passing minute , these fleeting moments the trees do them justice ! Getting dressed for the approaching spring, the hard task of producing fruit, but for the relentless passing as well ! Even for such a short period of time  their whole foliage is dressed in a festive way ! Even for those few days as well to take their existence seriously , and to live through beautifully its quickly passing every moment !
The sanctity of life is something like this ! Whatever comes comes, the present knocking on our door we have to accept with love, living through it nicely , firmly believing ! Without hanging onto the splendour of the past , just foolishly basking in the light of the results achieved , to boast with the real or imagined glories of the past , but we have to live nicely , wisely  accepting willingly the today, or the mature manhood, or the tired days of the approaching old age!
God does not like monotonous invariable conditions ! The constant readiness waiting for Jesus means something different every single day ! Every day again and again we have to rekindle the flame just like the wise bridesmaids their lamp, again and again we have to compose the continuously changing prayer  on the beautiful pages of the script of our eternal lives !
In the bustle of  waiting ,

Jesus said to his disciples, "Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. If he comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves."
