Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel Wednesday 15 May 2019
Jesus again and again testifies about the community of love of the Holy Trinity, from which we are not locked out either ! “Come to me all of you “ -says Jesus and this is not just like a poetic invitation , but a real one into the divine community of love ! The tragedy of Europe and the developed world is that we are not looking for a living, personal relation with God , but we are satisfied with the joys of the material world , the many worthless junk, clothes , expensive food , cars , houses rising high like crypts , empty boasting in front of each other !! We believe we can do everything , we can try everything , but our topsy-turvy rummaging , our idiotic behaviour does not make us joyful , but more like an ape, a missing link , similar to the evil spirit !
Although I know that I don’t deserve it , I am not really expecting alms from my Creator , but that He takes hold of my hand and make me sit at His table . I am yearning for Him to raise His kindhearted gaze at me , just trust me with any little task so that I maybe useful for Him ! I believe in Jesus Christ and in the One who Sent Him , the Heavenly Father and this makes me happy , gives me strength to do my daily work , to the ability to love the misbehaving children , if I fall to start anew , and in all my needs ! It is good to belong to the community of the Holy Trinity already here in this world , because in this big family there is always peace , here if I step into the quietness of prayer , I always feel the calming warmth of the love filled confidence , the shining hope , if I get lost , in a childlike naive rushing around , there always is where to return , if I hurt myself by committing a sin here they are not judging but healing !
I know that you are also small, insignificant but I encourage you , get your bits and pieces and come with prayerful love move move into our God’s abode , our Heavenly Father even awaits the homecoming of the prodigal son ……

The Word of God
Jesus cried aloud, 'Whoever believes in me believes not in me but in him who sent me. And whoever sees me sees him who sent me. I have come as light into the world, so that everyone who believes in me should not remain in the darkness. I do not judge anyone who hears my words and does not keep them, for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. The one who rejects me and does not receive my word has a judge; on the last day the word that I have spoken will serve as judge, for I have not spoken on my own, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment about what to say and what to speak. And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I speak, therefore, I speak just as the Father has told me.'
