Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel..
Wednesday 22 February 2017 Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter, Apostle
"Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven.”
Who would not want to be happy, blessed !? Jesus here shows us the way leading to happiness : Blessed is the man who received his Creator , who hears his heavenly Father’s voice and who lives,talks, acts according to the will of his God here on earth !!
The basis of the Christian mystery is our Lord’s Jesus Christ’s teaching !! In Jesus Christ , i the veritable God and veritable man heaven and earth meet ! Our Master teaches us so that we can also grow up to this meeting , the material world is capable of receiving , carrying its Creator and together with Him in burning love, adoration to become one ! In fact this meeting the dialogue with Infinity is the source of our fulfillment , joy , this is the salvation desired not only by Christians however all of us !!
I am convinced that many, many non-Christian , eastern -western friars , simple men of faith having after this meeting experienced the strength giving them joy, wisdom , the enlightening realistic answers to our questions, retreats and retreats to pray, to contemplate , reflect upon! I believe that after meeting with our Creator an unquenchable desire raises high even today all the churches in the world , the sanctuary raised in any kind of denomination !! That is also why I believe in a dialogue between the Churches , I also believe that many-many people searching for God will meet at the foot of their Creator peacefully !!

Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that the Son of Man is?’ 14And they said, ‘Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.’ 15He said to them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ 16Simon Peter answered, ‘You are the Messiah,* the Son of the living God.’ 17And Jesus answered him, ‘Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. 18And I tell you, you are Peter,* and on this rock* I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. 19I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.’
Matthew 16, 13-19
