'Do you still not realize?’
I laid a table for so many disadvantaged and orphaned children out of Your caring goodness my God, but despite all this I still have to confess ashamed that I still cannot understand Your infinite goodness and patience towards us ! I do admire your merciful ,caring goodness , as day after day like a parched wanderer to the spring I come back to You, but I still cannot understand , realize what is it that You love about us?! You , who at the dawn of creation with a single word brought us into existence , that the unfolding universe in space and time will grant  a home to Your children finding themselves , You are immeasurably great yet still like a gentle Father with infinite wisdom , tact , You bend down to us !?
I do not comprehend You but with trust I flee to You!!
With living faith ,
Father Csaba
translated by dr k.e.
The disciples had forgotten to take any bread and they had only one loaf with them in the boat. Then he gave them this warning, 'Keep your eyes open; look out for the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod.'
And they said to one another, 'It is because we have no bread.' And Jesus knew it, and he said to them, 'Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not understand, still not realise? Are your minds closed? Have you eyes and do not see, ears and do not hear? Or do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of scraps did you collect?' They answered, 'Twelve.' 'And when I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many baskets full of scraps did you collect?' And they answered, 'Seven.' Then he said to them, 'Do you still not realize?'
Mark 8, 14-21
