Friday  7 July 2017
On 8 July starting at 11 am in Gyergyóremete on the occasion of festivities in the village I am giving a presentation on my trip to Iraq . I realise many of you are asking why do I attend as a priest on such occasions to give presentations in  community arts centres !! My answer is simple : I am following my Master who would like us to go even for one soul to the end of the world if necessary , He would like to invite everyone to His Wedding Feast !!!
I am awaiting my sisters and bothers from Gyergyó with love in Remete,

As Jesus passed by,
he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the customs post.
He said to him, "Follow me."
And he got up and followed him.
While he was at table in his house,
many tax collectors and sinners came
and sat with Jesus and his disciples.
The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples,
"Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?"
He heard this and said,
"Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do.
Go and learn the meaning of the words,
I desire mercy, not sacrifice.
I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”
Matthew 9, 9-13
