Jesus at home

January 24, 2015 6:00 am

“Jesus came with his disciples into the house. Again the crowd gathered, making it impossible for them even to eat.” (Mk 3: 20)

We can invite Him into our houses. And He will come, because He knows perfectly how important the home and family life are. He spent thirty years with His Family. He also knows our hunger for love, our hunger for a kind word and our hunger to be important to someone. He knows, and when He is invited, He will come.

“Open our hearts, O Lord, to listen to the words of your Son.” (Gospel Acclamation)

It's good everywhere but…

home is the most beautiful place. Here we can feel in our place completely, even if we easily feel at ease everywhere.  ;-) . Some people are like that. But nothing is really like home. It’s so good to return to the rhythm of everyday duties, activities, meetings and rituals.

We can say that trips away do us good because when we have a break and are way from our daily routine, and later we come back with newer energy and enthusiasm.

Unfortunately during this trip I had to stop doing sport. It’s a pity about those “lost” days but now I am coming back to systematic training all the more joyously.

And if i managed to take to those place far away, now we can return to our rituals with zeal.

I always remember you fondly,

back with you,

Father Jaroslaw,

Rich in everything

My daughter is in a football ream with a girl who hasn’t got one hand. She’s doing really fine. She plays fantastic. All of them seem the happiest people in the world, when I look at a fragment of the workout.

Sometimes we think that if we haven’t got something, have lost it or it has been taken from us – it is our curse. “We lived in poverty, we couldn’t afford anything”,  “the father never talked to me”, “I was the smallest in the class”, or “I have been used”. But deficiencies may be a powerful driving force. “I did not have many things, but I learned Spanish on my own”. “I talk a lot with my son so that he has better memories than I have”. “I was small, but the fastest runner”. “I shall never use another person”.

These are only examples. You are who you are thanks to what you have been given. But your uniqueness and beauty also result from all that you didn’t get. And you have so much more richness – yes, in the “failure” and “suffering” compartment – which you can use once it’s been healed and changed, and employ as your greatest talent, your personal gift.
