"You shall love the Lord, your God,
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
and with all your mind. "Matthew 22, 34
We tend to talk rarely about our love for God, that is why O would like to direct our attention conscientiously towards the love of God ! Saint Luke notes down , that Jesus went out to the  mountainside  and "spent the night praying to God. “ Luke 6, 12 . Christ not only asks , commands us to love the living God , but as a true man, gives us a good example ! He Himself turns to  the heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit with worship, adoration ! It is quite certain that within the Holy Trinity the mutual glowing love is present and our Creator  wants to lift us up lovingly into this accepting, honouring , huge sea of love! God wants us that in centre of this infinite love, we also take part in the wedding feast! God’s love is not only emotion, but a creative act, attentive as well , since this infinite love towards us created our world and is kept up even now with His caring goodness ! Our life is nothing else, than the flare up of this infinite love , this is our calling , because only here  in the mutual love are we capable to unfold ,in a total acceptance , trust, cooperation can we be truly happy! Only in the love of God will eternity be ours !
My brethren want to "love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” this is your life , your goal and your happiness here on earth !
Loving God more than anything else, and renewed in Him  towards my love  for you,
Father Csaba 
translated by dr k.e.
When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees,
they gathered together, and one of them,
a scholar of the law tested him by asking,
"Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" 
He said to him,
"You shall love the Lord, your God,
with all your heart,
with all your soul,
and with all your mind.
This is the greatest and the first commandment.
The second is like it:
You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 
The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”
Matthew 22, 34-40
