Monday 27 February 2017
I do not want to be the rich young man ,in an  entrenched , comfortable but sterile world , in a world that has its days numbered !! My Lord I would like to follow in Your footsteps  leaving everything behind following You, get going ,lead by Your will to the land of miracles ! I believe that You have ideas ,  plans that give an answer to all our questions  but for this we have to step on Your way from our tried, safe ways !! Perhaps for a few more years  we can sit peacefully on the richess left to us from the past , but it is similar to the snow melting in the spring sunshine that giving up the soaring so many come back !!
I trust in You my Lord, because You are the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE!!
With love ,
Father Csaba
translated by dr k.e.
As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, ‘Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?’ 18Jesus said to him, ‘Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. 19You know the commandments: “You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not defraud; Honour your father and mother.” ’ 20He said to him, ‘Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth.’ 21Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, ‘You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money* to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.’ 22When he heard this, he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions.
Then Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, ‘How hard it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!’ 24And the disciples were perplexed at these words. But Jesus said to them again, ‘Children, how hard it is* to enter the kingdom of God! 25It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.’ 26They were greatly astounded and said to one another,* ‘Then who can be saved?’ 27Jesus looked at them and said, ‘For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible.’
Mark 10, 17-27
