Father Csaba’s reflections on the gospel..
Monday 13 March 2017
I met a strikingly beautiful young woman the other day , she is a university student , she is good at sport , it was good to hear the way she was speaking with enthusiasm, animated about her plans ! I listened happily and in myself I remembered that sad day, when 20 years ago this girl was born and her mother died whilst giving birth ! There and then everything seemed so hopeless , sad and behold God’s mercy creates a life-giving, beautiful spring in the merciless desert !
I admire the explosion of life year after year, the blessed spring bringing the teeming of life as self-assured, impudent it comes through towards the light through last year’s decaying carpet of leaves unstoppable! This same inconceivable , God given holy life ,like an invisible stream that babbles in you as well, since you were also born in the image and likeness of your Creator ! Trust in your Lord, let always and all the renewing ,life-giving mercy to fill you!
My dear brother I am praying today that in all your thoughts and through all your deeds may this great, beautiful godlike feature surface , the holy Mercy !

In the Sermon on the mount Jesus speaks to His disciples….
Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.
"Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven;
give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”
Luke 6, 36-38
