What a beautiful, close-knit , personal relation could there have been between Jesus and Mary ?! How good it is to hear these words from our Lord’s mouth that either you or I can also have such a deep , determining, joyful relation with Him , if I listen too and keep God’s words !! Yes our Lord Jesus Christ invited all of us into the inner sanctum of the Holy Trinity , into His large family there, where there is no first or last guest , where everyone 
has their place on our Creator’s right side!!
In the living hope, that I believe won’t disappoint ,

While Jesus was speaking, a woman from the crowd called out and said to him, "Blessed is the womb that carried you and the breasts at which you nursed."
He replied, "Rather, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”

Who dwells in my heart !? There is no vacuum, if you don’t belong to God , if you are empty then you’re in danger , because the evil one will settle in your heart !! "'When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it wanders through waterless regions looking for a resting-place, but not finding any, it says, "I will return to my house from which I came." When it comes, it finds it swept and put in order. Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and live there; and the last state of that person is worse than the first.”Luke 11,26
It’s not enough to repent , to cleanse your inner-self , we have to make a conscientious decision by God ! Courageously , lovingly lets give over our body’s temple to  our Lord Jesus Christ !!
With love ,

The Word of God
But some of them said, 'He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the ruler of the demons.' Others, to test him, kept demanding from him a sign from heaven. But he knew what they were thinking and said to them, 'Every kingdom divided against itself becomes a desert, and house falls on house. If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? - for you say that I cast out the demons by Beelzebul. Now if I cast out the demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your exorcists cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. But if it is by the finger of God that I cast out the demons, then the kingdom of God has come to you. When a strong man, fully armed, guards his castle, his property is safe. But when one stronger than he attacks him and overpowers him, he takes away his armour in which he trusted and divides his plunder. Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.

"Lord, teach us to pray “ Luke 11,1
The home of the fish is the deep water of the sea ! The bird’s home is the blue sky ! A human’s natural element is love ! To become healthy adults it is important that during our childhood bathing in the attention , love of our beloved parents a real trust towards our world is born in us ! The same way our spiritual development, for the fulfilment of our lives as children of God it is necessary for us to experience the infinite love , goodness of our Creator towards us. In God’s blessed presence , in the dialogue of the adoration can one experience this unconditional acceptance , that endless merciful goodness, that embraces with fatherly tenderness  and leads in the everyday! Prayer is born only in the stillness and this holy dialogue that is the source of all life !!  
God is love ! The fish in the sea , the bird in the breath of the breeze , we humans , can live happily immersed in the forcefield of our God's presence everywhere .
Father Csaba 
translated by dr k.e.
He was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.’ 2He said to them, ‘When you pray, say:
Father,* hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.* 
3 Give us each day our daily bread.* 
4  And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone indebted to us.
And do not bring us to the time of trial.’*
Luke 11, 1-4

On the feast of Our Blessed Lady of Hungary in the festive gospel, we read about the angel’s visit to Mary, they had a talk and Mary gave birth to Her precious child, Jesus Christ , then out of the will of Her Son , She became the mother of all mankind , including us as well !! Back in those days 25 years ago on a day in October the angels paid me a visit as well ! My angels came from Vienna and they encouraged me , to dare to say “yes” to God , to accept the children off the street ! In the autumn of 1992 , 25 years ago it was from their donations that we started to renew the first room in the monastery in Déva! So I can proudly say 
this is how I became together  with my colleagues the stepfather to close on 6000 children ! Our big family and every single member of that is God’s precious gift! The former angels , who since then, day after day are supporting, helping us , since they donate for a 100 children daily  one euro per day , came among us to look up our mutual large family ..Last week we visited at some length  our houses, today in Déva a thanksgiving mass was  presented , then after a dinner together we all got involved in a cheerful , get-together with dancing !! The music was provided by the orchestra of our child protection  home in Kovászna under the direction of Kolozsy István  ! The picture tries to capture the mood of this  bustling crowd …..Good mood, cheer, happiness is not only the right, privilege of children from well-to-do families because  God would like to generously ,magnanimously in His overabundant love offer this to all His children! We decided that we accept this gift gladly, beginning a happy dance ! Those who missed out on tonight’s festivity should not be sad, and most of all should not be envious , because this year as well we are going to organise our New Year’s Eve celebration, to which we invite and expect all men of goodwill ……Every year we spend New Year’s Eve together in Déva  with our children with great love and all guests knocking on our door are always welcomed lovingly !! 
With the high spirit of child of God,

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, ‘Greetings, favoured one! The Lord is with you.’

The Feast of our Lady of the Rosary .
It is good to embark on the way of the disciples , the apostles and humbly , with wisdom and love to direct children, young people, adults to carry out good deeds ! It is quite certain it’s wonderful to heal a person in hospital or to teach the students in school to something really wise , true, but nothing is more joyful than help a person , with goodwill back on their feet , to help them to joyfully realise their dignity as children of God ! It is a wonderful experience for me to free a person or more from the slavery of little faith, laziness, sin and with gentle goodness to help them on the way of active, merciful love !
Go !! Get going from where you are just now ! If you desire a family , choose the love of your life , build your home and with your beloved , fill your days , day after day with your boundless joy with the fruits of your love , your beloved children ! If God calls you dare to accept your calling, do not trouble yourself because of your insignificance , but get going ! Be an apostle, the brave herald of our Lord Jesus Christ in the world, and the Lord will rejoice seeing your stumbling efforts ! God did not choose the perfect ones two thousand years ago either , but people just like you , trust in your Redeemer , He is powerful enough to bring to a good conclusion all that is in you, and all that He started by you !!
With love,

Picture : My colleague Ernő on a pilgrimage and his precious daughter !
The seventy-two disciples returned rejoicing and said to Jesus,
"Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name."
Jesus said, "I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky. 
Behold, I have given you the power
'to tread upon serpents' and scorpions
and upon the full force of the enemy
and nothing will harm you.
Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you,
but rejoice because your names are written in heaven."
At that very moment he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,
"I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows who the Son is except the Father,
and who the Father is except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him."
Turning to the disciples in private he said,
"Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.
For I say to you,
many prophets and kings desired to see what you see,
but did not see it,
and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”
Luke 10, 17-24

Getting ready for the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi I greet you with great love .
You are aware that upon the recommendation of many we decided that 2018 , marking the 25th anniversary of the operation of the Saint Francis Foundation we would like to celebrate as the year of Saint Francis. This decision was not only made that by this we pay homage to the saint giving his name to our foundation, but because Saint Francis’ spirituality was the golden reserve, with which we embarked 25 years ago on the well-tread happy way of the gospel on which we would like to continue. The least repentant lesser brother of Assisi -as described by Thomas of Celano as well , getting ready for his death he told his companions not to be sad but “with a loud song to give glory to God and sing the most beautiful song of the middle ages the Canticle of the Sun. In this marvellous poem , Saint Francis starting from the precious Sun down to brother death calls on everything to glorify the Lord . He has a good word about all of creation praises the Sun, the wind, our little sister of the water and calls man as well . Saint Francis does not mention man’s greatness, wisdom , strength but the forgiving goodness, peaceful patience because these virtues can make the earthly life the anteroom of heaven :"Praise be You my Lord through those who grant pardon for love of You and bear sickness and trial.Blessed are those who endure in peace, By You Most High, they will be crowned.” 
Today’s gospel is very beautiful, our Lord is not welcomed in one of the villages and His disciples get angry and ask Him :"Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven
to consume them?"
Jesus turned and rebuked them,
and they journeyed to another village.” Then afterwards with His tired disciples, demeaned moves on and they stayed in another village ! Hoe peaceful am I ? Am I capable to forgive myself , my companions , my children ? How great it would be if I could put down those burdens that pull me down , sully my heart with  accusations , judgements.
I beseech you that lets  start the feast of our father  Saint Francis with forgiveness coming from the heart . Lets pardon each other , and ask for the gift  of the grace of endurance from our father Saint Francis on this great feast.
With love,
Father Csaba

When the days for Jesus to be taken up were fulfilled,
he resolutely determined to journey to Jerusalem,
and he sent messengers ahead of him.
On the way they entered a Samaritan village
to prepare for his reception there,
but they would not welcome him
because the destination of his journey was Jerusalem.
When the disciples James and John saw this they asked,
"Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven
to consume them?"
Jesus turned and rebuked them,
and they journeyed to another village.

Monday 2 October 2017  Memorial of the Guardian Angels
Our Lord Jesus Christ is not saying that you should not want to be great , He is not showing His disciples the way of the Easter men’s detachment from wants  but shows that the man who is the greatest , is the one who can be the least of all ! The really great man is the one who can  successfully, humbly be at the service of others ! This is the regal route , that leads into the Kingdom of Heaven that is open to all of us ! I ask you trustingly , come and lets be the lesser brothers in everything , to everybody !
With love,

46 An argument arose among them as to which one of them was the greatest. 47But Jesus, aware of their inner thoughts, took a little child and put it by his side, 48and said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes this child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me; for the least among all of you is the greatest.’
49 John answered, ‘Master, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he does not follow with us.’50But Jesus said to him, ‘Do not stop him; for whoever is not against you is for you.’

Saturday 30 September 2017…Memorial of Saint Jerome, Priest and Doctor of the Church
I am filled by admiration about  our Lord Jesus Christ’s decision stemming out of His love for us ! At the time of His incarnation He emptied Himself and came as a crying baby amongst us, giving up His Divinity placing His life in Mary’s hand ! We could think that there is no love greater than this , yet on Holy Thursday Jesus takes another step , the "The Son of Man is given into human hands !” Total surrender of Himself , when on the cross with His last breath , in His infinite loneliness He almost cries out “  Eli, Eli , lama sabactani “"My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me". ?
What we should never forget that He accepted all this because :“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3, 16. Jesus’ life is about us , our eternal salvation because there is a great deal at stake , our decisions have serious consequences ! If Jesus could have redeemed us without incarnation, death on the cross then probably He would not have done, accepted all that for our sake , but us poor sinners needed all this and Jesus gladly accepted everything for our sake just so we can be all together in eternal life !! My dear brothers and sisters I encourage you lovingly to give up with grudging , greed, our selfish sins and lets embark with Him on the way of love towards eternal salvation !!
With love ,
Father Csaba

While they were all amazed at his every deed,
Jesus said to his disciples,
"Pay attention to what I am telling you.
The Son of Man is to be handed over to men." 
But they did not understand this saying;
its meaning was hidden from them
so that they should not understand it,
and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.

Feast of Saints Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, archangels
We so easily make comments about this or that, that it exists or does not exist , even though our world is full of enormous secrets even for the greatest minds….It is worthwhile to read the Wikipedia about the dark matter:never  been directly observed; however, its existence would explain a number of otherwise puzzling astronomical observations.[1][2] The name refers to the fact that it does not emit or interact with electromagnetic radiation, such as light, and is thus invisible to the entire electromagnetic spectrum.[3] “
What this invisible “material “ and unknown existing “energy is no one knows ! I ask you if we don’t even know 5% of our world then why do we deny all that , that our Lord Jesus Christ speaks of so clearly ?! I do not question everything grumpily , I would rather like to resemble that child , who sits under the Christmas tree and is opening with a feverish haste his dear parents’ gifts !! I believe that I live in a beautiful world , I believe that there are still a lot unknown secrets hiding in the Almighty’s hands that magnanimously He all wants to show us eventually as He meant them all for us in His loving way !!
I lovingly greet God’s angels and I commend  into their goodness, protection with prayer and love all our dear children and my dear brethren,

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him,
"Here is a true child of Israel.
There is no duplicity in him."
Nathanael said to him, "How do you know me?"
Jesus answered and said to him,
"Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree."
Nathanael answered him,
"Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel."
Jesus answered and said to him,
"Do you believe
because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?
You will see greater things than this."
And he said to him, "Amen, amen, I say to you,
you will see heaven opened
and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

Who are you , are you like a magnet in your surrounding or just like iron shavings  drifting in the wind ?!You cannot feel the strength of the magnet either with your hand , you cannot see or feel it, yet it is still there arranging , forming your surrounding ! Your phone rings and you say there is reception here and you talk with your friend .People can feel Jesus’ presence , the force emanating from Him , Herod is also feeling it and is looking for an opportunity to meet with Him ! For billions of years we lived in the earth’s magnetic field and we did not even know that it existed ! I am profoundly convinced and believe that we live, move , exist  in the presence of this loving force of our Creator and I also believe as  our world becomes more enlightened more and more of us will become aware of this great miracle the blessed presence of our ever caring God !
Our Lord Jesus Christ’s presence, forcefield has been present, can be felt  for the last two thousand years in the history of our world , it may attract or repel but it has an  influence on all of us ! He wants to influence you as well, trust in Him let His influence form, shape you! Quieten down , relax just let yourself go, do not “want” but calmly give yourself over  in the stillness of your room to your Creator, may your heart be open to prayer and you will feel in your soul, the bottom of your heart that Jesus lives and takes hold of your hand ! Our Master with infinite patience with His goodness and strength will start to move and change around your life wisely , slowly you yourself will become in the presence of Christ a living magnetic force . You will get going and embark on a way that you have never even dreamt about , you won’t even understand yourself , but you progress, when you speak  your word  will carry authority , a creative force. You will have your own forcefield that is born out of goodness, wisdom, humility , Christ’s beautiful virtues . One day you will suddenly realise you are no longer like iron shavings dancing , swirling around from all directions in the breeze but you yourself like a magnet of infinite goodness , humbly moving your family, surrounding and arranging with mercy life around you . You will discover that to pray means that by becoming still you will be able feel your God’s invisible but ever present holy will , that shows you the way and guides you with a firm hand where ever life may sweep you along ! Trustingly take your child’s hand , smile at your child with goodness and get going , because God lives and wants to lead you both on the road of miracles! 
With love,

Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening,
and he was greatly perplexed because some were saying,
"John has been raised from the dead";
others were saying, "Elijah has appeared";
still others, "One of the ancient prophets has arisen."
But Herod said, "John I beheaded.
Who then is this about whom I hear such things?"
And he kept trying to see him.

During two thousand years our Lord Jesus Christ  sends his disciples again and again to proclaim God’s Kingdom and to heal the sick. If we would have done this till now all nations and people could have been converted , and then we would not have to fear wars, toil with refugees, bicker so much and petrified get ready for the end of the world ! Unfortunately only very few people listen even today to Pope Francis , who does nothing else but sends us to proclaim  with mercy and love Gospel in the name of Christ , heal the wounds of the earth ! Unfortunately many people turn against him , even though they should know that during the millennium all the branches that broke off the vine , dried out….Here we have to think in centuries, millennium because the mills of God turn slowly ! It is a historical fact that apart  from the large family of the Church , no other large community on earth survived ! Perhaps for a short time one or more” branch" may even flower but the breaking down further ,  sinking into its own conservation it drifts towards annihilation ! 
I believe and profess that Christ would like to do today what He did two thousand years ago ! To gather His disciples together with love , giving them strength and power with trust and send them out to proclaim God’s Kingdom and heal the many ills of our world ! For this we do not need infrastructural investments , huge gilded churches , because a homily can be given by the roadside or even in a stadium ! To build a better world no money is needed but brave , enthusiastic people trusting in God, accepting the guidance of the Church, who are willing to leave the tables of the moneychangers , the business life providing appearances of good living , and humbly getting down on their knees  in front of God saying : My Lord I am here send me , humbly selflessly I’ll do everything You ask of me !
With love ,

Jesus summoned the Twelve and gave them power and authority
over all demons and to cure diseases,
and he sent them to proclaim the Kingdom of God
and to heal the sick.
He said to them, "Take nothing for the journey,
neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money,
and let no one take a second tunic.
Whatever house you enter, stay there and leave from there.
And as for those who do not welcome you,
when you leave that town,
shake the dust from your feet in testimony against them."
Then they set out and went from village to village
proclaiming the good news and curing diseases everywhere.
