Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel….
Tuesday 19 September 2017
Many mothers are crying today for many young men of Nain ! They do so rightly , because many young people are roaming as seemingly dead in one door and out the other , but they are not capable to make a home, establish a family , father a child !There are those who are pressing down the doorhandles of places of entertainment, there are those who go from college to college ! Then there are those who are roaming on the roads of the big, wide world , running wild they have no idea from where to where they roam, there are the ones telling tall stories, building castles in the air living their barren lives! The mothers are crying because they can see that their children are not approaching their goals like eagles with outstretched wings but like drifting leaves of a tree they just drag on with their lives !!! We cry out after Jesus, our Redeemer , who rejects complaint, and calls on powerfully on the young people of the XXI century as well “Young man, I say to you, arise.!!”Arise young man and get going, you who were born to live , to conquer, with your two strong arms, with your God given intellect build your own nest ! You were born to sweep off her feet the most beautiful girl, who will lend you wings, and for whom you are capable to do anything ! Besiege her with your love , ask her to become your wife , and to bear you strong, brave children !! Yes , you were born that by raising the flag in your hand high, make friends, allies conquer, make your most beautiful dreams come true , your beloved a mother , your homeland into your flowering home, for your own and your people’s sake.
With love .

Jesus Raises a Widow’s Son
11 Soon afterward he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. 12 As he drew near to the gate of the town, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow, and a considerable crowd from the town was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” 14 Then he came up and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” 15 And the dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. 16 Fear seized them all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and r“God has visited his people!” 17 And this report about him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country.
Luke 7, 11-17
