Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time “C” Year (2019)

2019/06/22

Priority

When the days for Jesus’ being 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.

As they were proceeding on their journey someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.”  Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.”

And to another he said, “Follow me.” But he replied, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.”  But he answered him, “Let the dead bury their dead.  But you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”  And another said, “I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home.”  To him Jesus said, “No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God.” Lk 9, 51-62

 

second thoughts forbidden

“But you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.”  – Here it is the absolute priority! It has always been the main task and top priority of leadership to do exactly this: define and declare effectively the top goal for the members of the team. The top goal which has to be pursued with all heart and all strength, even if other less important tasks have to be neglected for a while! A Hungarian saying approximately translates as: ‘Whoever grabs a lot, can hold little’.  Today’s handbooks for leadership keep emphasizing, that truly successful people concentrate on one thing only, sometimes all their lives. Single or simple-mindedness.  Jesus had one thing in mind: to preach the kingdom of God. Everything else was subject to that. He expected the same form his followers. There is no room for ‘yes, but’ or ‘agreed, but first’ … It is a holy thing to live a life of grace, the family is also a holy thing, but the kingdom of God comes first. Therefore, look ahead, into one direction together with Jesus. This is how we become those who prepare for His lodgings.

The solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood “C” year (2019)

2019/06/22

They were hungry

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ – 23.06.2019

 Jesus spoke to the crowds about the kingdom of God, and he healed those who needed to be cured. As the day was drawing to a close, the Twelve approached him and said, “Dismiss the crowd so that they can go to the surrounding villages and farms and find lodging and provisions; for we are in a deserted place here.” He said to them, “Give them some food yourselves.” They replied, “Five loaves and two fish are all we have, unless we ourselves go and buy food for all these people.” Now the men there numbered about five thousand. Then he said to his disciples, “Have them sit down in groups of about fifty.” They did so and made them all sit down. Then taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing over them, broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. They all ate and were satisfied. And when the leftover fragments were picked up, they filled twelve wicker baskets. Lk 9, 11B-17

 

Cutting of the loaf

“They all ate and were satisfied.” –  When does a feast end? How can we bring it to a closure in a dignified manner? The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is the appropriate end of the Easter cycle. It draws our attention to what endures beyond the cycle of the Easter celebration and will accompany us throughout the year! The Sacrament of Communion, the Eucharist. To realise this in preparation for the 52. Eucharistic Congress, will bring special spiritual fruits.

The beginnings were so humble. People were simply hungry after a long day. No vendors accompanied them, as it is the custom at pilgrim sites today…. The apostles, however, considered their mission completed, once the teaching had finished. They would have gone to have their modest dinner in their small group, if they thought about bringing food at all. They did not consider it their responsibility to supply for the masses. They were a bit concerned, that Jesus might get lost in the healing of the many, and might even forget that man also lives of bread. An apostle also does. But Jesus did not consider the feast completed. He intended a memorable bonus for the crowd. And he gave a lesson to learn for the apostles. It was their job to make sure that the feast would be played out in an orderly fashion. And beware, an ordinary meal turned into an extraordinary celebration. Not a mass event! It is not by chance that Jesus had the people sit in groups of fifty. This was the ideal number to make sure that everybody is an intimate participant of the celebration and not an onlooker, pressed to the periphery. And in order to make obvious how many they were and also that there is no limit to the size of the community, Jesus shows by counting of the left overs. An amount filled twelve wicker basket remained. Enough for the twelve tribes of Israel, or for twelve month until the next Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity “C” year 2019

2019/06/12

The Holy Trinity

                                                                             Jesus said to his disciples: “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason, I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.” Jn 16:12-15

 

Spirit of Truth

“But when, the Spirit of truth comes” – This is an unusual promise. It is necessary, however, because the Spiritual Peace, offered to the disciples, would not come without effective help, because, as Jesus gently warned the apostles, they are “not strong enough.” Bővebben…

Peace

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” then he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” Jn 20, 19-23

 

Messenger of Peace

Motto:  “Peace be with you.” – With these very words we begin every mass: Peace from God, our Father, and Jesus Christ, our Lord. PEACE BE WITH YOU – these were the words the risen Christ used to greet the disciples when he entered the room they were. Sure enough, their hearts were full of distress. Peacefulness and the peace of the soul are the precondition that the restless heart can receive God. This peace can only come from God and only Jesus is able to mediate that peace. It is that peace, which is necessary for the disciples to recognize Jesus. This gives meaning to the gesture of showing His wounds. This gift of peace opened their hearts first for receptiveness, then for the preaching of the gospel and for mission. How could Jesus have sent them out on mission with a restless heart? This is still true today. Whenever we step into the house of God, when we celebrate the wounds and the resurrection in the Eucharist, we ask again and again for this peace. When we step out into the world, we take this peace with us into the world. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Peace and our mission is Peace.

UPWARDS

Jesus said to his disciples: “Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And behold I am sending the promise of my Father upon you; but stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”

Then he led them out as far as Bethany, raised his hands, and blessed them. As he blessed them, he parted from them and was taken up to heaven. They did him homage and then returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and they were continually in the temple praising God. LK 24:46-53

 

they prostrated

Motto: „As he blessed them he parted from them” – It is remarkable, that the Lord is giving a blessing as he is departing! The two actions, happening at the same time, merge into one. Whatever is a reason for sadness in everyday life, whatever is a source for distress in the stories that happen to people, turns into a blessing, an ongoing grace. Jesus has a twofold message that points beyond this gesture:  First of all, the suffering and resurrection, the Easter event, make him the source and the beginning of universal salvation. Therefore, He ‘had’ to rise. But this could not remain an internal issue of the Trinity; rather it became the final and universal turning point for the whole of humanity and all of history. Paradoxically, from now on the presence of the Trinity becomes permanent and will be a work of the Holy Spirit. As the apostles sink to their knees in awe, their Master ascends to heaven. Their bowing down body becomes the bridge to heaven. The praise of God is the continuation today, through us and with them. With them and with Him.
