Father Csaba's reflections on the gospel.
How easily is our Lord Jesus Christ making friends ! He does not withdraw into His own world but He is there among the people. He visits the good ones, the bad ones, the evil ones, just like the blessed sunshine that embraces all with its light from the flower petals to the foul-smelling swamp! Let us also learn from our Lord to be openhearted , let us visit each other , let us address each other with a Christlike trust, let us talk with our brethren wisely, sensibly ! Let us learn from our Master and follow Him with great humbleness !!!

It happened that on a Sabbath day Jesus had gone to share a meal in the house of one of the leading Pharisees; and they watched him closely. He then told the guests a parable, because he had noticed how they picked the places of honour. He said this, 'When someone invites you to a wedding feast, do not take your seat in the place of honour. A more distinguished person than you may have been invited, and the person who invited you both may come and say, "Give up your place to this man." And then, to your embarrassment, you will have to go and take the lowest place.
No; when you are a guest, make your way to the lowest place and sit there, so that, when your host comes, he may say, "My friend, move up higher." Then, everyone with you at the table will see you honoured.
For everyone who raises himself up will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be raised up.
Luke 14, 1.7-11
