"'If you can!' Everything is possible to one who has faith.”
Master you have left the saints  in the magnificence on the mountain of transfiguration , so You can find the child suffering in the dusty valley !?  You renounce the security of the kingdom of heaven, the unimaginable happiness of the Holy Trinity , just in order to help us embracing us , saving us from perishing ?! 
Like the warning flames , flames of fire are  from within the bush in front of us !! It is quite certain that it is Your will , that following your example like Moses we embark on the road to lead our families, people, mankind from the slavery of their own sin and lead them to the land of love, goodness, mercy into the heavenly Canaan ,to where ,at the bottom of heart , we all desire to be!! You do not want that we leave anybody behind , that lonely they get lost in sin, suffering!! I beseech You to have faith in the Christian teaching, education , that with a good word, wisdom, patient reasoning a person can be reared as is the best for them !
With love,
Father Csaba

Picture: Just  one child is worth ,to leave the saints in the magnificence on the mountain of transfiguration !!
As Jesus came down from the mountain with Peter, James, John and approached the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and scribes arguing with them.
Immediately on seeing him, the whole crowd was utterly amazed.
They ran up to him and greeted him. 
He asked them, "What are you arguing about with them?"
Someone from the crowd answered him, "Teacher, I have brought to you my son possessed by a mute spirit.
Wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes rigid.
I asked your disciples to drive it out, but they were unable to do so."
He said to them in reply, "O faithless generation, how long will I be with you?
How long will I endure you? Bring him to me." 
They brought the boy to him.
And when he saw him, the spirit immediately threw the boy into convulsions.
As he fell to the ground, he began to roll around  and foam at the mouth. 
Then he questioned his father, "How long has this been happening to him?" 
He replied, "Since childhood.
It has often thrown him into fire and into water to kill him.
But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us."
Jesus said to him, "'If you can!' Everything is possible to one who has faith."
Then the boy's father cried out, "I do believe, help my unbelief!"
Jesus, on seeing a crowd rapidly gathering, rebuked the unclean spirit and said to it, "Mute and deaf spirit, I command you:
come out of him and never enter him again!"
Shouting and throwing the boy into convulsions, it came out.
He became like a corpse, which caused many to say, "He is dead!"
But Jesus took him by the hand, raised him, and he stood up.
When he entered the house, his disciples asked him in private, "Why could we not drive the spirit out?"
He said to them, "This kind can only come out through prayer."
Mark 9, 14-29
