Read more: Wasted life …“ Frightening, how many people nowadays  condemn themselves knowingly to a childless life . I believe that this is a very ,very serious disease a self-destroying  life form . Not only does it rob us from the future , but robs people from blossoming out, experiencing life in full. “
Father Csaba 
translated by dr k.e.
Read more: We are all different...“Every child is a holy parcel sent by God, into which God put all His treasures and in reality I only help to blossom out these values.  There are no two identical children, then why would  the families , homes be the same. I do not even believe that we should raise our children forcing them into a certain mould.”

We shook hands and since his hand was at a strange angle I asked as to what has happened to him. “ A circularsaw cut it off , but I was shouting until they sutured it back .” I looked at him questioningly , with staring eyes and he started to talk : I was careless and the spinning steel caught my arm above my wrist , it all happened in a flash , my hand was cut off but I picked it up from the sawdust and after shaking it  off, shouting, I ran to the doctor asking them to suture it back . The doctor in the village ,could not help but  I was asking ,crying, again and again  . Eventually I was  advised  to try my luck in Marosvásárhely ! They put my hand in a bagful of ice and took me to the hospital to try my luck there. The journey was long , they did not want to see me, I had neither money nor health insurance , but I was crying, begging, shouting loudly and finally my hand was sutured back. Now I can even use it to a certain extent.” 
I looked at this simple man , with his incredible  faith he took his severed hand with himself to a hospital about 300 km away ! Bravely , against all better judgement , despite the laws of nature , the cowardly ,faint hearted  little faith , the labyrinths of bureaucracy ,alone, going against it all and saved his severed hand . I looked at my own hand ! Would I have picked up my own from the dust ? Whether if hearing all the sane medical opinions , would I have resigned to accept my loss or would I have taken a chance, on the one percent probability of success,  crying, sobbing ? Do I have such a faith in medical knowledge , human goodness , nature's healing power , man triumphing  over difficulties , like this beggar ? Without a word I looked at this man and in owe I took his hand again, but not like an alms- giver , but like a beggar , who wants to learn from his brother, who is richer in faith, hope and will to live .”

I wish you all a blessed evening with gratitude in my heart ,
Father Csaba
translated by dr k.e.
Read more: Why should I be grateful...Everyone in their own way is unique and very beautiful, God saw it fit this way in His magnanimity , may His goodness be blessed. The richness of abundance !
Everything  that I received belongs to God, but with love , goodness I can pass it on.
God’s opinion is what counts, He knows our motives, our lives, the values, talents we possess and the rest is that important . 
Unless you are guided by your heart ,when you  kneel  before the Lord of the universe  it is without meaning !
Father Csaba

Read more: We have a role in this world."We have a role in this world. It is not really our role but our duty. We are tiny little flames exposed to the storm , with our faith though we are guarding the warmth of love. We are pale snowdrops, but struggling with the winter freeze we are still heralds of spring. We are called that with our faith we bring back God into this world lacking faith.”
Bishop Márton Áron .
