Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel….
Saturday 25 February 2017
"Let the little children come to me……” If I would have to recommend a remedy for all the problems of my people but even for the whole of Europe then I would put one word on the script : Children!!!! Yes a child is the most effective, pure remedy! Daily with true love we embrace one or more little one, then again and again throwing them up in the air we catch them , whilst the little bundle of energy , joyfully with a tinkling giggle embraces our neck and gives us a kiss - this is all we have to do three times a day for our being reborn in love ! The trust , love of a child springs such emotions in us about the existence of which we were not even aware of ! A vulnerable little person brings out from us adults not only the most beautiful, purest human features but if need be a mother lioness willing to go against the world , or a father willing to “ bring down the stars from heaven “! The blessed presence of a vulnerable child, plants beautiful God given virtues into our hearts , strength , energy, wisdom , patience , mercy, love and many , many such treasures that can transform , beautify our whole personality !!
Following in the footsteps of Jesus lets dare to decide by accepting life!

Picture: The Franciscan nuns taking in children in trouble !
People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them. But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.’ And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.
Mark 10, 13-16
