Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel Saturday 11 May 2019
“ A play where God builds a bridge between two worlds.”
'Do you also wish to go away?'We are not able to comprehend what we are playing with !! I was looking at children, adults and I see that they have no sense of fear at all ! Even though there are tens of thousands i the Romanian prisons , unfortunately last year close on two thousand people lost their lives in accidents and more than this number took their own lives and then we are not even talking about divorces , nor about those 57,000 children who are cared for by the state , who are crying after their parents in Romanian child protection homes ! Naturally we also have to think of the final events , happenings as well ….What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Mark 8, 36
The education system and naturally the parents as well commit a fatal mistake when they let their children believe that no matter what they do their deeds have no consequences !! The students if they do not study, do not obey , if they are unscrupulously insolent , if they play truant from school and they can get away with all this without any consequences then they will develop a very wrong impression of getting away without being wounded ! ! It is a very great problem if a child believes that “ they can get away with anything “ because nothing is going to happen ! This is why I am supporting the commander of the prison in Balassagyarmat and the inmates who wrote a play in honour of Saint Adorjan and the presentation of this production by the inmates !! The world premier is going to be on 19th May at 5 p.m. at the banquet hall of the town hall in Balassagyarmat .I saw the rehearsals and I would like if many people would be able to see this performance performed by the inmates, I sincerely hope , that even through the television the inmates of this prison can warn the growing up generation about the many, many dangers lurking around them in the big wide world . There is a great deal at stake ! Lets look out after ourselves and each other !

The Word of God
When many of his disciples heard it, they said, 'This teaching is difficult; who can accept it?' But Jesus, being aware that his disciples were complaining about it, said to them, 'Does this offend you? Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But among you there are some who do not believe.' For Jesus knew from the first who were the ones that did not believe, and who was the one that would betray him. And he said, 'For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted by the Father.'
Because of this many of his disciples turned back and no longer went about with him. So Jesus asked the twelve, 'Do you also wish to go away?' Simon Peter answered him, 'Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.'
