We dropped in at our house in Csíksomlyó named after Saint Stephen, here too we were welcomed by the vacation mood, the young people were having fun looking at the photos from the last school year!!!! I was looking at the brightly coloured photos taken by them and quietly I was praying for them :
“My Lord, my God You created these beautiful young people entrusted into our care , You love them very much , since You died for them on the cross ! I know that You would like to share with them Your divine joy ! That is why You are also telling them :"I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.” John 15,9
Our Creator I believe , that You want to share with us the wonderful joy of the further creation of our world , the uplifting experience of honest work and creation! You want the young people to keep their eyes open to see the secrets of the world, to study and to grow up so that they, themselves, can give food to the hungry ! You want it that with our wisely constructed machines, the knowledge they gained at school , with harmless technology to the whole world they grow in the blessed soil of our homeland the potatoes, the wheat, to breed , culture domestic animals on the green grass of our homeland , so that there maybe food in abundance on the table of all man.
You would like to share with our young people the joy of bringing joy to others as well, this is why You are calling them today as well , that by praying, by developing themselves they can become gifts , Your kindhearted blessing in this world ! With caring goodness You are sending them to console the grieving ones , to heal with mercy the sick, discovering the secrets of the world they can grow up so that wisely they’ll be able to teach the next generation coming after them in schools, universities !
You would also like to present the young people of the XXI. century with the joy of passing on life ! You speak to them with Divine authority :
“Have many children, so that your descendants will live all over the earth and bring it under their control.”Experience the joy of the acceptance of life , carrying it and finally with an open heart letting them on the way, the gentle love in a real common-in law marriage ,partnership with whom you can share the joy of having babies, whom you can raise proudly with kindhearted parental love . By raising , protecting them , they will become your protectors in your old age !
Jesus Christ I know that the treasury of Your gifts is infinite , and You want that every single child entrusted into our care , by being blessed, becomes a blessing here in the Carpathian-basin and in the big, wide world equally ! I believe that seeing our sincere joy arising from the success of our grown-up children , You rejoice together with us , and at the end of my life I would not like anything else than bless the Father together with You, who lovingly shared with us , little ones, from merciful joy His divine joy stemming from the honest enduring work .
My dear fellow carer , it was a long school year , I know that you are tired as well, but believe that we are travelling on the right way , do not give up your dream ! Let’s serve with the humility of the lesser brother the littlest ones! May you also get strength from the promise of Jesus Christ :“Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life.” Mark10, 29
With love ,
