Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel…Tuesday 18 September 2018
Whatever has happened has happened be magnanimous……love does not stumble in the mud, but it flies high above the earth….Who knows why the young man died? We know nothing about him , even his mother does not ask Jesus to cure him, but the Master goes there and resurrects the dead and gives back the mother her child, then quietly He moves on !
In my thoughts I am also standing in the crowd of mourners and amazed I look after Jesus moving away in the setting sunlight!! I would also like to be like that , flying high on the wings of love and not stumbling in the dust of the earth weighing up whether do you deserve this or not, how much is one owed , deserving something !?

Soon afterwards Jesus went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. As he approached the gate of the town, a man who had died was being carried out. He was his mother's only son, and she was a widow; and with her was a large crowd from the town. When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, "Do not weep." Then he came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, rise!" The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. Fear seized all of them; and they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet has risen among us!" and "God has looked favourably on his people!" This word about him spread throughout Judea and all the surrounding country.
