Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel..
Friday 4 August 2017 Memorial of Saint John Vianney, Priest
I am on my way still several hundred kilometres to my destination ! I am driving , I feel peace inside me, the nice,regular purring of the car engine fills me with tranquility! How awesome the flaming fuel encased by the steel casing do not extinguish the flame but ensure maximum performance ! These forces propelling us are born not only from the flammable fuel but from the rigidly fixed hard sides, not giving even a millimetre , of the cylinders ! In the dust of the street poured out , the burning gasoline only gives rise to soot , filth , while the same material here between the steel enclosure , according to the plans of the wise engineers ,disintegrating , flaming are happily hurling us towards our homes !!
Only strict boundaries taken on by your own decisions can give your life a meaning ! Where there are no strict limits , there there is no strength, drive , life !
That is why I encourage you be not afraid to take out from the outstretched hand of your redeeming Christ , towards you,the commandments leading to joy, happiness! Establish a family , accept the gift of a child , plan your undertakings , and with the compass of God’s commandment in your hand , dare to embark on the way of action ! Honour your Master and you’ll win !
With love ,

54 He came to his home town and began to teach the people* in their synagogue, so that they were astounded and said, ‘Where did this man get this wisdom and these deeds of power? 55Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? 56And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?’ 57And they took offence at him. But Jesus said to them, ‘Prophets are not without honour except in their own country and in their own house.’ 58And he did not do many deeds of power there, because of their unbelief.
Matthew 13, 54-58
