Thursday 9 February 2017
Love and the boundaries !! Our world is crippled , tied  hand and foot by the boundaries of language ,nationality, religion , ethnicity!!  Our society is poles apart! The lack of trust often leads to hatred, animosity, hostility , war that unfortunately tries to bring out the beast from all of us , the evil murderer !
Jesus steps over these gulfs easily , talks with the lepers, the sinners , people of different nationalities, religions as well ! Our Lord Jesus Christ is just that lovable  with the strangers, as with His own ! He sends His apostles all over the world :” “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”Mark 16,15
Jesus’ commandment of love is universal , we have to love everybody not only our own families, nation, our Church however everybody !! In fact beyond the acceptance of all our fellow human beings -according to Jesus’ will- we have to preserve our loving trust, openness towards all creatures! Lets pray and try to step over with trust the differences separating us , because  the way of Christ’s love leads us into the land of miracles !
I believe in the final victory of love,
Father Csaba

Picture: the young  girls living in our home in Gálospetri are busily working together in the kitchen in harmony.
Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre.g w He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret.  In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an impure spiritx came and fell at his feet.  The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter.
“First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.”
“Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.”
Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.”
She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.
Mark 7, 24-30
