Our Lord warns us to be vigilant in today’s gospel , because in reality we do not really know neither the day , nor the hour when will He knock at the door! How ready am I that with my head raised high , joyfully , peacefully to open the door of my life wide to my Lord , God ?
The Feast of the Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth- In this chaotic world despite all problems , illness life is going on in its own channel , well -well , even if not with a sickle , but the harvest has really started , the gathering of the God-given precious produce !
Are you afraid ? Do you feel small vulnerable , fragile ? Can’t you see the way ahead that leads you on in this entangled world ? Do you feel that you are in the clutches of the scary tomorrow filled with real dangers and are you overwhelmed by the panic that is like the flood breaking through every impediment?

I started my monastic life in the monastery in Dés , the service of God as a Franciscan !! Many beautiful memories attach me to this monastery ! Dear Father Ervin was in charge , beside Father Dezső and Father Hugolin and Brother Rókus completed the community , that took me in as a young novice!!
On the last day of the year a gentle knock attracted my attention . A very unassuming ,smiling woman was standing at the entrance of the monastery . She came from Kismuncsel that is roughly 30 km from Déva from an abandoned mining settlement, this mother of four, in trouble, of Hungarian background but no longer speaking a word in Hungarian.
