Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel Thursday 28 March 2019
Jesus Christ , our Redeemer came among us, because He wants us to live here in this world freely , joyfully a fertile life in our dignity as children of God! Christ did not come among us to sulk, to condemn , to be shocked seeing our human fallibilities , just us the physician seeing the wounds of sick person , does not turn away from us with aversion , disgust ! Our Redeemer knows what dwells in the “sons of men “ , He knows that frail , fallible a man born from a fistful of dust is ! He also knows how easily we get off the way of love , goodness and having fallen low how much pain we cause ourselves and each other , this is also why He came among us , for this He also accepted for us on Good Friday death on the cross !
It is Lent , time of reconciliation, repentance ! Lets not cherish my frailties, fallibilities , sin , but I should sweep the out in the big spring clean ! Lets not suffer from our throbbing , aching sins , but may our hearts be filled with trust towards Jesus Christ , who in His first public speech for the people of all times proclaimed the forgiveness eternal expiation :"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”
In the quietness of Lent , in searching for the freedom of the spirit reborn in repentance I am going to my Redeeming Christ ! You should come as well !

The Word of God
Now he was casting out a demon that was mute; when the demon had gone out, the one who had been mute spoke, and the crowds were amazed. But some of them said, "He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the ruler of the demons." Others, to test him, kept demanding from him a sign from heaven. But he knew what they were thinking and said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself becomes a desert, and house falls on house. If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? for you say that I cast out the demons by Beelzebul. Now if I cast out the demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your exorcists cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. But if it is by the finger of God that I cast out the demons, then the kingdom of God has come to you. When a strong man, fully armed, guards his castle, his property is safe. But when one stronger than he attacks him and overpowers him, he takes away his armour in which he trusted and divides his plunder. Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.
