Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel ..Thursday 31 August 2017
"Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant….” Matthew 24,45 Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself asks a valid question , it is exciting to think about it !
All my ecclesiastical life I was devoting all my effort to prove that God does not create rejects ! Yes God created a wonderful world, on the one hand in an infinite space more than a billion galaxies , and in all of them many- many billions of sun shines , on the other hand less than minute cells, molecules , atoms and to the amazement of the scientists underneath these there are tinier subatomic particles , that our Creator laces them with wise laws , life creating interactions , us being the the amazed, happy children of this! For me to serve God faithfully and wisely only means one thing: To testify, prove day after day to my brethren humbly the greatness of my Lord , His immeasurable wisdom , His devotion with my life , with all my words and deeds !
Who is the unfaithful servant? The one who forgetting about our loving heavenly Father , putting himself into the limelight stating by his thoughts , words , actions despises, condemns, abuses ,harms his fellow human being, our God created beautiful world!! I also see these wounds , the faces contorted by hatred , avarice, sinful desires , but with kind words , healing love , I would like to free my brethren to a Christchild-like free, happy life ! Sin is such a contagious disease , captivity , that disfigures man’s face , cripples his soul, his life becomes like hell !A person like this should not be conquered , destroyed but attempt to heal ,free from their captivity! Lets join together , lets prove it to one another as well , with a lot of patience , love that despite we all are murderous Saul-s , yet still in all of us Saint Paul is there as well , together with the Hymn of Love that by which if we implement in our lives , then not only the world but we also will be happier, by becoming Men according to Jesus’ heart desire and the promised Eternal life by our Redeemer will be ours as well !
With love ,

For you do not know on which day your Lord will come.
Be sure of this: if the master of the house
had known the hour of night when the thief was coming,
he would have stayed awake
and not let his house be broken into.
So too, you also must be prepared,
for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come.
"Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant,
whom the master has put in charge of his household
to distribute to them their food at the proper time?
Blessed is that servant whom his master on his arrival finds doing so.
Amen, I say to you, he will put him in charge of all his property.
But if that wicked servant says to himself, 'My master is long delayed,'
and begins to beat his fellow servants,
and eat and drink with drunkards,
the servant's master will come on an unexpected day
and at an unknown hour and will punish him severely
and assign him a place with the hypocrites,
where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.”
Matthew 24, 42-51
