Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel…... Saturday 7 October 2017
The Feast of our Lady of the Rosary .
It is good to embark on the way of the disciples , the apostles and humbly , with wisdom and love to direct children, young people, adults to carry out good deeds ! It is quite certain it’s wonderful to heal a person in hospital or to teach the students in school to something really wise , true, but nothing is more joyful than help a person , with goodwill back on their feet , to help them to joyfully realise their dignity as children of God ! It is a wonderful experience for me to free a person or more from the slavery of little faith, laziness, sin and with gentle goodness to help them on the way of active, merciful love !
Go !! Get going from where you are just now ! If you desire a family , choose the love of your life , build your home and with your beloved , fill your days , day after day with your boundless joy with the fruits of your love , your beloved children ! If God calls you dare to accept your calling, do not trouble yourself because of your insignificance , but get going ! Be an apostle, the brave herald of our Lord Jesus Christ in the world, and the Lord will rejoice seeing your stumbling efforts ! God did not choose the perfect ones two thousand years ago either , but people just like you , trust in your Redeemer , He is powerful enough to bring to a good conclusion all that is in you, and all that He started by you !!

The seventy-two disciples returned rejoicing and said to Jesus,
"Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name."
Jesus said, "I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky.
Behold, I have given you the power
'to tread upon serpents' and scorpions
and upon the full force of the enemy
and nothing will harm you.
Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you,
but rejoice because your names are written in heaven."
At that very moment he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,
"I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows who the Son is except the Father,
and who the Father is except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him."
Turning to the disciples in private he said,
"Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.
For I say to you,
many prophets and kings desired to see what you see,
but did not see it,
and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”
Luke 10, 17-24
