Many people ask very often what my opinion is about the march of the homosexuals, or about abortion, about sexual life before marriage , etc. etc. The ten commandment is very clear , unambiguous and our Lord Jesus Christ does not give any ducking out , or back doors. What I see that that all those who keep God’s commandments are calm, peaceful, happy . On the other hand those who even from momentary irresponsibility , or with premeditated action trample on , step over God’s commandments are restless, tense, anxious , feel unwell. "23 For the wage paid by sin is death" (St Paul Rom.6, 23) and regarding this no human power , parliament can make decisions over euthanasia , termination of pregnancy , divorce can give peace to the perpetrators of sin . Human laws are not capable of giving  permanent answers in matters of conscience, at this level only God’s laws that are of eternal validity and authoritative .
With the humbleness of a lesser brother , with full knowledge of my human weaknesses I ask everybody , that regarding the decisions over issues in their lives should be made in the light of the ten commandments , here in this world and in eternity they will lead to happiness. 
With love,
Father Csaba

The commandments given by God on the Mount of Sinai are the commandments  are the basic principles of our life of faith and morals of eternal value (Book of Exodus 20). It summarises the duties of man towards God and his fellow human beings. It’s validity is permanent at all times as Jesus told us: " “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them .” Matthew 5,17 
God’ ten commandments.
1- ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.”
2- You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
3- Keep the Sabbath day holy.
4- Honour your father and your mother.
5- You shall not murder.
6- You shall not commit adultery.
7- You shall not steal.
8- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
9- You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife.
10- You shall not covet others properties.
Jesus said to the crowds, "Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfil. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 5:17-19

The curse of UNBELIEF, harsh words , but it would be important to make a decision ! Jesus Christ chose us on Good Friday , died for you as well on the cross!! He paid an enormous price for us, that is why I am encouraging you not to give up !! Embark on your way with a living faith , you are the child of the great God ! You were baptised in the name of the Holy Trinity , so you are the carrier , living temple of the great God . Have trust in yourself , you possess mountain moving forces within you , you are capable to make the most beautiful goals that were dreamt into you by the great God  come true!!

Since it was preparation day,
in order that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath,
for the sabbath day of that week was a solemn one, 
the Jews asked Pilate that their legs be broken 
and they be taken down.
So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first 
and then of the other one who was crucified with Jesus.
But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, 
they did not break his legs, 
but one soldier thrust his lance into his side, 
and immediately blood and water flowed out.
An eyewitness has testified, and his testimony is true; 
he knows that he is speaking the truth, 
so that you also may come to believe.
For this happened so that the Scripture passage might be fulfilled:
Not a bone of it will be broken.
And again another passage says:
They will look upon him whom they have pierced.
John 19, 31-37

"you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God” Mark 12, 18
We Christians, day after day  should have our eyes peeled to our Creator’s magnificent face . I am convinced that most of the problems either in our lives or in the lives of the people living around us that surface ,  arrise from the distorted , superficial pictures of God. We don’t know God’s mightiness , His shining , magnificent beautiful face that in the revelation He disclosed for us , and for this reason we are wandering in the dark , we live our lives badmouthing each other unnecessarily .
I encourage my dear brethren to quieten down , and contemplating the created world let us reflect upon the power of our creator God. The past days I watched a short film about DNA and it almost seems unbelievable that in all our cells , embedded in the chromosomes that are rolled into a spiral ,of approx 2meters  long, there is so much information stored , that if printed would fill a library of 6000 volumes of books . In one single cell how much information is stored then ?! Every person is unique , in a way that this can never be replicated  not only the colour of our hair , but every single thing is coded in a way, that these cells are born again daily, weekly, die, are changing . From the world of the minute things if we start out we can observe , with amazement the biodiversity , that the living things together produced the balanced animal and plant kingdom of the planet called Earth. The giant whale swimming in the oceans is also made up of tiny atoms, cells, travelling hundreds of kilometres looking for a mate that in its own way to bring life into the world and nurture it as a good mother her several hundred kilograms newborn ! Seeing all this , I admire it in an awe ! And if we raise our eyes towards the sky above us, are the sparkling stars . Using the Hubble telescope just concentrating on a black area the size of a stamp , during a long week gathering the lights taking pictures . In this tiny area the image of several thousand galaxies appeared , upon the analysing of which in each galaxy billions of stars are shining , around them planets, moons, comets . The scientists discovered to their great surprise that there are more stars in the universe than grains of sand in our worlds’ seas, oceans .
We really do not know God’s infinite power, wisdom , His caring goodness. I am convinced that even in our wildest dreams we cannot even imagine the might, power of our God who with a fatherly love , care sustains our world .
At the end of the school year with humility I go down on my knees and give thanks to this Infinite Goodness , who with infinite caring love this year as well provided our more than two thousand children the daily nourishment , clothing , school equipment , and protected us in this entangled world from all troubles , scandals . I am well aware that only by holding the hand of our caring God did we manage to arrive to the safe end of school year of 2018 . Praise and gratitude for everything ! 
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
On bended knees ,

Some Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus and asked him a question, saying, "Teacher, Moses wrote for us that 'if a man's brother dies, leaving a wife but no child, the man shall marry the widow and raise up children for his brother.' There were seven brothers; the first married and, when he died, left no children; and the second married her and died, leaving no children; and the third likewise; none of the seven left children. Last of all the woman herself died. In the resurrection whose wife will she be? For the seven had married her." Jesus said to them, "Is not this the reason you are wrong, that you know neither the scriptures nor the power of God? For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. And as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the story about the bush, how God said to him, 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is God not of the dead, but of the living; you are quite wrong."

Give to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s : 
We are getting ready for the close of the school year … here is the time for reckoning ! I ask all the people in charge of the houses , the daycare centres with love , to write a report with how many children they started the school year, how many of those reached their goal, and with what results ,  what was their mean, their behaviour like ! God’s most precious gifts , the children with immortal souls have been entrusted to us ! We have a responsibility for every single child , it is good if we also give an account of every single talent in our care for ourselves ! The big question is in the 2017-2018 school year were the children simply put on “ice” or in joining forces with the teachers, colleagues did we make good use of the values they possess ?! God wants every single kindergarten , school children to grow in kindness and wisdom day after day.
It is important not to try and “massage”, “ beautify" the results , we cannot lie to God in any case , we can only deal with the problems, the worries successfully if we are honest with ourselves ! Lets try to finish the school year nicely, honestly and lets try to concentrate on this . The organisation of the next school year has to be rethought in light of all this ! 
Give to God the things that are God’s :
The end of the school year is a time for thanksgiving as well ! Every house should invite the local parish priest to say a  holy mass and our children can express their thanks to our supporters who have been invited prior to this event ! The schools will organise their own end of school year ceremony, but it is important that we also say thank you to God publicly all the good, nice things we received during the past school year from the goodness of our loving , caring God !
I would also like to receive photos, reports from our houses' end of school year’s ceremonies!
At the end of a school year the accountability for me, for you  as well is our duty that goes with our work ! Lets carry out our work with respect to God and our supporters as well honestly !
With love,
Father Csaba

Then they sent to Jesus some Pharisees and some Herodians to trap him in what he said. And they came and said to him, "Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality, but teach the way of God in accordance with truth. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not? Should we pay them, or should we not?" But knowing their hypocrisy, he said to them, "Why are you putting me to the test? Bring me a denarius and let me see it." And they brought one. Then he said to them, "Whose head is this, and whose title?" They answered, "The emperor's." Jesus said to them, "Give to the emperor the things that are the emperor's, and to God the things that are God's." And they were utterly amazed at him.

I regard my own and the Church’s most important task as the propagation, teaching of Jesus Christ’s Deity and the revelation of the Holy Trinity by Him , because every other truth is based on this ! I believe and profess , that God who addressed Abraham , lead him  and his  family  out from his homeland , is the same one who also addressed Moses in the burning bush , and who gave the whole of mankind the ten commandments ! I believe that Isaiah , Jeremiah and the rest of the prophets were also  addressed by the same God and lead them through their conscience , who on Christmas eve became man , became incarnate , came among us to teach, redeem , to lead us to eternal life ! I believe that Christ’s teaching is true , that God is not a  solitary, isolated   entity enclosed in infinite perfectness who cannot be reached but in a Community of Love, the Holy Trinity ! The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit can not only be addressed , but They are also capable of addressing us and through our conscience with tender love, merciful patience to lead us !! The indivisible three person of the one God love each other not only inwardly with infinite intensity but outwardly as well, us people , the whole created world , as Himself ! 
Jesus taught in such a way at the last supper : “9 “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. 10 If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
11 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15, 9-11 
I believe and  profess , that even though we were born from a fistful of dust , we are not only capable in remaining in the love of God , but we can also reciprocate God’s burning love  in our stumbling way ! In the ten commandments God is not asking the impossible , where He commands us : Worship your Lord, your God !
“ I am the way, the truth and the life !” The way of love revealed by Jesus Christ is one that is feasible for me , for me this is the most important Truth , and if someone remarks on it in reality and was on that , will experience it , that here in this world in reality this is Life !

Then Jesus began to speak to them in parables. 'A man planted a vineyard, put a fence around it, dug a pit for the wine press, and built a watch-tower; then he leased it to tenants and went to another country. When the season came, he sent a slave to the tenants to collect from them his share of the produce of the vineyard. But they seized him, and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. And again he sent another slave to them; this one they beat over the head and insulted. Then he sent another, and that one they killed. And so it was with many others; some they beat, and others they killed. He had still one other, a beloved son. Finally he sent him to them, saying, "They will respect my son." But those tenants said to one another, "This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours." So they seized him, killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard. What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants and give the vineyard to others. Have you not read this scripture:
"The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
this was the Lord's doing,
and it is amazing in our eyes"?'
When they realized that he had told this parable against them, they wanted to arrest him, but they feared the crowd. So they left him and went away.

Many think that without any effort they are entitled to everything ! Right to life , study, free health services , but even to eternal life ! Jesus poses one question to the people questioning Him :”….'I will ask you one question; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things……” Mark 11, 27 ….no answer is forthcoming and since people are not sincere, Jesus continues the dialogue :”'Neither will I tell you…” Mark 11, 33
We get our children used to that always, everything is free, a gift , there is no need to be grateful for it, and doe not even has to be happy for receiving it and naturally there is no need to thank anything , because you are all entitled for this ! Unfortunately we ourselves also expect the state to look after us , the teachers teach our children as this why they exist, the doctors to heal , since that is why they get paid and naturally that the priest to pray for God’s blessing on this sinful world, in any case who is interested in what God is doing , just take care of us day after day and that’s it!
The awakening will be painful! In life for every answer , often even for the least achievement we have to struggle for !! There is no fruit without effort , work ! Without physical effort there are no muscles , you’ll become a puny, sickly figure! Without studies , mental work , if you do not read , if you do not learn you will be a silly, knob despised by all , a nothing !! If you do not take care of your spirit , if you do not pray, if you do not walk on the way of love , if your Creator like a brooding hen calls you in vain , then you will be lost , eternal destruction awaits you ! Without effort , sweaty labour we are not entitled to anything ! An honest man works for everything and what one gets as a gift, we should say thank you with a grateful heart ! 
Lets read attentively the gospel passage and lets start to write a thank you letter to those , who presented me with my life, knowledge, with anything ! I owe gratitude for the work of my parents , my teachers , my doctors ! At this time towards the end of the school year it is right and proper to compose express our grateful thanks !
With love,
Father Csaba.

Again they came to Jerusalem. As he was walking in the temple, the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders came to him and said, 'By what authority are you doing these things? Who gave you this authority to do them?' Jesus said to them, 'I will ask you one question; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. Did the baptism of John come from heaven, or was it of human origin? Answer me.' They argued with one another, 'If we say, "From heaven", he will say, "Why then did you not believe him?" But shall we say, "Of human origin"?' - they were afraid of the crowd, for all regarded John as truly a prophet. So they answered Jesus, 'We do not know.' And Jesus said to them, 'Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.'

It is not enough if you don’t do anything bad, it is not enough if you avoid sin, it is not enough if you rule out the possibility of making a mistake from your life ! Passivity, the sterile , barren life is bad, because you were born to produce fruit, lasting fruit ! Just because a garden has no weeds , that is not enough in itself, there should be valuable fruits ,  tasty vegetables growing in it, beautiful flowers should be blooming! Your richness is your fruit !! 
Quieten down, slowly a day has come to an end , what was the fruit of your day, what is it that from the past week will remain  for eternal life ?? What have you got in your hand , with what do you dare, can appear before God ! ?

Then he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple; and when he had looked around at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see whether perhaps he would find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. He said to it, ‘May no one ever eat fruit from you again.’ And his disciples heard it.
Then they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling and those who were buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold doves; and he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. He was teaching and saying, ‘Is it not written,
“My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations”?
But you have made it a den of robbers.’
And when the chief priests and the scribes heard it, they kept looking for a way to kill him; for they were afraid of him, because the whole crowd was spellbound by his teaching. And when evening came, Jesus and his disciples went out of the city.
In the morning as they passed by, they saw the fig tree withered away to its roots. Then Peter remembered and said to him, ‘Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered.’ Jesus answered them, ‘Have faith in God. Truly I tell you, if you say to this mountain, “Be taken up and thrown into the sea”, and if you do not doubt in your heart, but believe that what you say will come to pass, it will be done for you. So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
‘Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses.’

I often thought about why God saw it important to reveal to us the incomprehensible great mystery of the Holy Trinity ? Father, Son and Holy Spirit , three persons in one entity ? Three persons in one God in an indivisible unity ! God reveals His innermost secret the “how” of His existence that we admire , in an awe , but we cannot really comprehend , because every comparison , human thought is not enough for understanding this great truth !
Every Christian is baptised in the name of the Father , Son and the Holy Spirit , without this revelation there is no Christmas, Easter, Pentecost and no salvation, nor eternal life ! The most conflicts of our world in the past but also in the present originates from the comprehension of this revelation ! All the great heresies , religious wars can be traced back to the denial or acknowledgement of the Holy Trinity ! All our conflicts with the Jewish, the Muslim faith also originate from here!During the course of history, was this the source of, how much temper , anger, hatred , blood was this pertaining to the revelation about the Holy Trinity , and how many more wars, hostilities will still arise even after all this , because of all these eternal truths revealed by God ! For the Jews even back then but even now it is blasphemy, a mortal sin to say that the second divine person came among us in the person of Jesus Christ !! Those belonging to the Muslim faith , are persecuting Christians for and executing them even in public because we believe and profess that God is the Holy Trinity , and the second divine person became man , came among us to redeem us ! 
Jesus Christ quite certainly must have been aware of the great significance of this revelation as after all the events of Good Friday that He consciously accepted can be traced back to here ! For Him it is so important the profession of the Holy Trinity, - Father , Son, Holy Spirit , the , true one God , who at the same time is the true three person as well, -for this truth He accepts the death on the cross ! The big question is : the acknowledgement of this why is this the central teaching of our faith ? Despite all tension, war why are we so adamant about this great truth , the acknowledgement of the Holy Trinity !? 
The revealed God Holy Trinity in the Gospel, is a living, indissoluble alliance of love ! Jesus Christ admits that :” 34 “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” John 4, 34. The whole of the Gospel is defined by the unconditional devotion, , love of Jesus Christ towards the heavenly Father ! The writers of the Gospels state that Jesus retreats several times to a secluded place , spending the night in the adoration, worshipping of God . On the cross with His last breath as well He turns to His heavenly Father : My Father I commend my spirit into Your hand ! Jesus is more devoted to the heavenly Father than His own life ! At the same time the heavenly Father turns with the same infinite love to His Holy Son 7 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”Mark 9, 7. Jesus also speaks always with this infinite respect, love of the third divine Person, the Holy Spirit ! " But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” John 14,26
Yes the revealed image of God is much more, more beautiful, wonderful than as the one that over thousands of years the people searching for God could have ever dreamt of, imagined ! Looking from down here ,from the dust everything is totally different , then what the second divine Person descending from heaven saw it fit to reveal to us !The infinite joy of a Christian is that all of us despite our insignificance received a personal invitation into this Community of Love , with God, the Holy Trinity we can sit at the one table ! Jesus said :” 9 “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” John 15, 9-11
A Christian's living hope is God Himself, in the Community of love of the Holy Trinity , and our aim is here on earth already that living in love, harmony we grow up in such a way , that we gain acceptance into eternity, our Creator’s large family ! To be left out of this community of love is hell itself ! 
In the light of this we can say that for us the denial of the Holy Trinity , means the denial of everything , that is our hope, joy ,goal here on this earth ! We are devoted more to God's community of love than to earthly, material possessions than even to our earthly existence ! Based upon this faith did Christians accept and still do even today the suffering or even martyrdom ! 
Lets look at what a world picture without the Holy Trinity offers for mankind ?! In case if only one God exists in His infinite perfectness , who is unable to speak to us, to come among us, who tolerates that there be such a big confusion, disorder here on earth, and that we stagger along through history’s bloody, stormy centuries , then that God is of no interest for me !Such a God I reject, I deny , I even despise ! If God forgets about us , if he is capable of turning away from us for centuries , then those people are right who say that one has to turn away from such a God , a God like this can be denied, has to be despised ! If he does not want us then why would we want him ?! Lets carry this thought further ! If all of us were born to the image and likeness of a God who turns inwards , does not care about his creations , is then where we ourselves are aiming at this selfish , self-centered fulfilment at any cost ! And then we already are at the stage of infinite selfishness , where the physical annihilation of those who think differently , who profess a different faith is acceptable ! This is a frighteningly simple formula : or the God of the community of love , who is open towards everybody : " And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”John 12, 32 or the singleton life style , the solitary perfectness , where we do not need anybody or anything for our happiness , where our fellow human being at best is just a means to an end in reaching our goals ! 
In the light of the Holy Trinity the Ode of Love makes sense :" Though I command languages both human and angelic -- if I speak without love, I am no more than a gong booming or a cymbal clashing.
And though I have the power of prophecy, to penetrate all mysteries and knowledge, and though I have all the faith necessary to move mountains -- if I am without love, I am nothing.
Though I should give away to the poor all that I possess, and even give up my body to be burned -- if I am without love, it will do me no good whatever.” 1 Corinthians, 12, 30
The kingdom of heaven was opened up for us in the community of the Holy Trinity , the community of saints is born , where we ourselves are also desiring to get despite all our weaknesses , insignificance ! The community of love of the Holy Trinity , creates a community, life already here on earth and presents us with the hope of eternal love , that is why the Church cannot ever give up this teaching….
With love,

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh." The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" So Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever."

They were on the road, going up to Jerusalem, and Jesus was walking ahead of them; they were amazed, and those who followed were afraid. He took the twelve aside again and began to tell them what was to happen to him, saying, ‘See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death; then they will hand him over to the Gentiles; they will mock him, and spit upon him, and flog him, and kill him; and after three days he will rise again.’
James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and said to him, ‘Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.’ And he said to them, ‘What is it you want me to do for you?’ And they said to him, ‘Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.’ But Jesus said to them, ‘You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?’ They replied, ‘We are able.’ Then Jesus said to them, ‘The cup that I drink you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.’
When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. So Jesus called them and said to them, ‘You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.’

He has everything he needs and yet when one of my children snuggled up to me and gave me a kiss , then with tears in his eyes all he said that he would give everything he has away if only he had a child , who would just run to him and snuggled in his arms would give him a kiss !! 
Pope Saint John Paul II said it very wisely : that today’s world is moved by the culture of inanimate objects !! We are not putting our hands out for eternal life , rather for all shining , sparkling material objects, even though we know that inanimate things will not snuggle up to us lovingly in this world, neither will they run towards us joyfully in eternity !! 
There are lots of rich young men ! I believe that even nowadays Jesus lovingly invites many young people , encourages for a real life , but unfortunately the young people like little bird stuck in tar are writhing in the clasp of material possessions !!  During the past weeks we organised a jubilee pilgrimage for our supporters ! We made a pilgrimage into more than ten of our houses travelling by bus !! I was the tour guide and I also arrived as a “guest” ! Every house welcomed joyfully, ceremoniously the guests , the children were all gathered together nicely , dressed to suit the occasion , they presented nice shows and my voice faltered several times , because of the joy and pride I felt! It is not easy to carry others’ problems, worries , but I know I made the right decision 25 years ago , when giving up everything I made a decision to a stand by life !! Yes I deliberately said 25 years , because a man even as a friar, priest can also be a rich young man ! Whilst beside serving life you also have other materialistic, worldly objectives you are a rich young man !
Everybody has to make a decision , but if you don’t that also is a decision ! Jesus calls you, but if you turn your back on Him if you don’t dare to embark on this road because of difficulties , lack of comfort you decided, God still loves you, but He is sad , because you did not accept His gift leading you into the land of miracles ! 
With love,
Father Csaba

Picture : I am a child without you I am lost !
As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, 'Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?' Jesus said to him, 'Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: "You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not defraud; Honour your father and mother."' He said to him, 'Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth.' Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, 'You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.' When he heard this, he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions.
Then Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, 'How hard it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!' And the disciples were perplexed at these words. But Jesus said to them again, 'Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.' They were greatly astounded and said to one another, 'Then who can be saved?' Jesus looked at them and said, 'For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible.'
Mc 10,17-27

Holy Trinity ! A very difficult topic, during the course of history it caused many, many arguments , wars of religion! This revelation of Jesus Christ causes the most problems , even in today’s world , among the different religions ! The big question is why did Jesus saw it so important  to reveal this truth that for us is in any case so incomprehensible ?
Because this is the central teaching of our Christian faith , without this there is no Christianity !! God, our Creator , in His perfectness , does not exist by Himself , but in a community of love ! The essence of the redemption is this, our Creator invites us  into this community of love ! The essence of the creation is to love and to be loved !  
It is wonderful that infinite love with which Jesus Christ turns to the Heavenly Father : "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work.!” Nothing can dim this infinite love since even on the cross   He says “"Father, into Your hands I commit My Spirit." And when He had said this, He breathed His last.”
At the same time it is good to see the Heavenly Father’s love towards Jesus Christ : ""This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him!”God is nothing less than an infinite outpouring of love that joins the Holy Trinity , that also wants to include us in this community . 
Yes from the gospel the wonderful God like face of the Holy Trinity unfolds ! God in whose name we were baptised : Father, Son and the Holy Spirit ! The Christian man for this reason is not struggling for enlightenment and  for him not the perfectness is the main aim , these are only incidental benefits ! For us the community of love of the Holy Trinity is the goal ! We are preparing , upon the invitation of Jesus Christ for a heavenly feast , into such a community , where stepping over our human boundaries we can sit at the one table with our Lord   our God ! Startling , daring vistas did Jesus Christ show for mankind , through the revelation of the Holy Trinity ! We are celebrating the central teaching of our faith today , lets be adamant about it, devoted to it ! Day after day lets make the sign of the cross joyfully and lets profess humbly that we are the children Trinitarian one God ! Our earthly goal is nothing else than to become one, united by love, like the Holy Trinity !
With love,
Father Csaba .

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'  
Matthew 28, 16-20
