It was not God who drove man out from Paradise , but it was man who drove out God from his own world : with his unbelief, turning away , disobedience , distrust.
The world had a realistic chance for Adam and Eve-the first couple-and mankind to make a decision by God , Love . The story of mankind could have continued like that as well if they would have said “yes” to Him, and could have lived in harmony with Him and one another as well.
What is beautiful , that every page of the Holy Scripture is about God calling us again and again, He would like to win-over mankind and would like to embrace all of us personally and one by one to Himself . The decision is ours , whether we accept the outstretched hand towards us or we reject it, the world’s fate depends on our decisions . What is remarkable that for God there is no life that drifted once and for all into a dead-end street . The match , whilst we are alive ,is not called off .
Our Beloved Heavenly Father , I beseech You very, very humbly , give us strength to try and concentrate to complete the tasks You entrusted us with ! Help us that we turn all our time, energy to bring our own tasks to a satisfactory conclusion . . Grant us wisdom to understand that it is much better, even if stumbling , but to carry out our own tasks rather then meddling in someone else ’s affair.
Your Creator is calling you, He would like to surprise you with the teaching of the infinite distances , in His goodness He would like share more of Himself with you. God created you for Himself and wants you to get yet another step closer to Him .
You are yearning for infinity and there is nothing wrong with this , after all you are on a journey , your are the pilgrim of the eternal life ! A pilgrim is one, who sets out on a journey , because believes that this is not all yet, that there is more , more beautiful , valuable than all that he achieved so far and possess .
It is a wonderful feeling to know , that with your work you can give joy to the infinite God ! To know that your efforts , your everyday stumbling good intentions places your tiny hand into God’s infinite hand and adjusts your feet to the steps of God walking the infinity .
If a person in the sacrament of reconciliation is only looking for an adventure, human satisfaction, or instead of spiritual guidance they would only like to get a spiritual chatter , they can be easily disappointed .
God loves every man with eternal love and this eternal love is independent whether one reciprocates it or not. God does not stipulate conditions for this, does not dispense it in dribs and drabs , that I only love you if you do this and that ……
We have to believe in mankind ! When we talk with someone , we have to present that person with our infinite trust in man. Jesus did not put His apostles through sixty-six tests so that they can become His co-workers , He is not showing any signs of anxiety whether they pass the exam or fail , but He trusts in them . Trust gives you wings . Where does this uplifting force stem from ? From the fact that a man freed from fear can be incredibly brave and strong .
He makes Himself One with us , without exception He shares in our suffering : with the abandoned , hungry children , the victims of physical and spiritual abuse and with all the sick people -we human beings are incapable of doing this .
Pain, suffering is not something that can be dispensed by drops, nor can it be measured . For the outside world the invisible suffering, fear , hopelessness often can push a man into an abyss . But we also have to know that our suffering is not in proportion with all the goodness, joy , that God gives us for our struggles in this world .
When we say that here on Earth life is easier for some , more difficult for others , we also have to know that God is just and in the end everything will be balanced out . Finally the just God will bring into equilibrium, balance out people’s lives.
Suferring is one of those doors through which -willing or unwilling we have to pass through .
Every person sooner or later will have to live through their own Holy Thursday, Good Friday . Everybody will go up on their own Golgotha whether they fight against it , or not. How much more beautiful it is,if holding onto the hand of God , accepting His will , accompanied by our loved ones we get up there.
We need to pray for each other with very deep love and we have to help with kind-hearted, selfless , ingenious care , when in someone’s life that moment arrives , to empty the chalice of suffering , so that they can do that with dignity .
We Christians believe that there is a dimension where out of love , kindness we can give presents to each other , not only a single flower , a piece of cake, or a car but we can offer the fruits of our suffering, prayers as well for each other , so that the other person can also benefit because of that by the grace of God , in some way the other person becomes better because of this, changes his ways , can see more clearly ,to understand the connection, relevance in the great mysteries of life . It is a great secret in the World how much is something is worth , what is its value . We think in this World laughter is very valuable. However suffering is much more valuable , but it is very difficult to understand this.
