Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel Thursday 27 June 2019 Feast of the King Saint László
They call on Jesus with treacherous intention, but the greatness of our Master that He is capable of bringing out the good, the eternal truth from the provocation of the ones wanting to confuse His teachings ! Jesus does not take on the sneaky style to the people wanting to cheat Him , but He puts into words one of the most important teaching of the Holy Scripture, the Greatest Commandment ! You can bring out good even from evil , this is Jesus Christ’s way ! Our Teacher does not fall over the obstacles placed in front of Him , He does nor walk into the trap , but gets over it and teaching kind-heartedly He even reaches greater heights !
Today is the feast of Saint László ! The Cumanian armies attacking , invading army is robbing , pillaging , committing atrocities ! This is painful and bad, but the king conquering the enemies , baptising the invading Cumanians , tho ones pillaging his country brings out the good from the evil , since the descendants of the Cuman people worked in peace together the people of this land , built the country , in war fought together to defend the precious homeland!
There are offending, insulting , unpleasant things , but in itself nothing is bad , things become really bad from our attitude, approach , into painful failure, defeat !! the real greatness is capable of bringing out the good even from the most painful situations and this is the essence of Christianity ! In the hand of a follower of Christ even the discarded stone becomes a corner stone, for he is not searching for his own right , but wants victory of love to conquering above all, that is why he is devoting all his efforts , tolerates , serves ! Holding not Jesus’ hand we believe , that there is a solution even for the most painful questions of our life , through which nobody will be a looser , but through the triumph of love everybody will be victorious !
With love ,

The Word of God
When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" He said to him, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbour as yourself.' On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."
