Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel Friday 7 June 2019
Jesus is asking not only from Peter but from all of us : “ Do you love me ? “ Our eternal life depends on the answer to this question !
Up on the Hargita , on the holy mountain of Transylvania in a church in the monastery of the Paulite order we are going to present holy mass today 7th June 2019 starting at 6 p.m. Friars who came from the Philippines brought with them a statue travelling around the world of our Lady of Fatima blessed by Pope Francis . Getting ready for the holy feast of Pentecost we would like to offer ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and our homeland buffeted by the storms of history and for the ashes of our heroes resting in our war cemeteries ! At the same time on behalf of our people humbly repenting for our sins , we would like to say aloud : “Our Lord You know everything, You also know that Your people here in the Carpathian basin love You !”
Come to the Hargita ! We invite you lovingly to attend the sacrifice of the mass if you cannot get there physically , you can still join us through the live broadcasts of the Bonum TV or on our www.magnificat.ro webpage !
I am convinced that for the sake of our salvation it would be important that all of us wherever we live , getting ready for Pentecost , repenting , offering ourselves to Mary’s Immaculate Heart we would profess our burning love for Jesus Christ and the Holy Trinity .
With love ,

The Word of God
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my lambs." A second time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Tend my sheep." He said to him the third time, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, "Do you love me?" And he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." Jesus said to him, "Feed my sheep. Very truly, I tell you, when you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go." (He said this to indicate the kind of death by which he would glorify God.) After this he said to him, "Follow me."
