15th August 2017, Tuesday... The Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin.
Mary is called by God and she embarks on a journey !!
The rich young man is called by God and he departs sadly!! You are also called by God , do you dare to embark on the way of serving love , with a resounding  hymn of joy   , carrying Jesus in your heart ?? Mary gave up everything and is soaring freely according to the will of God , the rich young man is very wealthy , he already has a “private life “ and this is why he is unable to follow our Lord Jesus Christ !! At least on this beautiful day lets be like Mary and let the God of love goodness lead us , decide in our decisions , lets celebrate our blessed Lady like this !!
Totally yours,
Father Csaba

Mary set out
and traveled to the hill country in haste
to a town of Judah,
where she entered the house of Zechariah
and greeted Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting,
the infant leaped in her womb,
and Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit,
cried out in a loud voice and said,
"Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
And how does this happen to me,
that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears,
the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
Blessed are you who believed
that what was spoken to you by the Lord
would be fulfilled."
And Mary said:
"My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
and has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children forever."
Mary remained with her about three months
and then returned to her home.
Luke 1, 39-56
