The Mother of Jesus – the testament from the cross

What is the relation of our Patriarchate to the Mother of Jesus?

Fully biblical, in line with the whole Church’s tradition. Jesus is true God and Mary is the Mother of God – Birth-giver of God – Theotokos. It was proclaimed at the Council of Ephesus in 431. She well deserves special honour from everyone who has received Jesus, as stated in the Scripture: “All generations will call me blessed.” (Lk 1:48)

A critical view of the papacy

The purpose of a critical view of the papacy is not its elimination, as attempted by some cardinals or liberal theologians. The purpose is its purification.

How did the Apostle Peter and his successors understand the papacy in the first three centuries? In the first place in such way that they themselves, dying a martyr’s death, witnessed to Christ. Jesus is the Son of God who died for our sins and, being God, rose again from the dead historically and really. There is salvation in no one else (Acts 4:12).

Resurrection of Christ

 

1/3

a)     Introduction –Resurrection of Christ (5 minutes)

In spirit we can see the stone tomb on Golgotha. During Saturday night it is guarded by the Roman soldiers. The chief priests and Pharisees said to Pilate about the dead Jesus: “While He was still alive, He said: ‘After three days I will rise!’ Therefore command that the tomb be made secure.” (Mt 27:63-65)

The night is silent. What happens in the spiritual sphere? After Jesus’ death His spirit descended from the Father’s hands into the place called Sheol, or Hades (Hell). In this place He broke the rule of the angel who held in captivity the spirits of the dead. The Apostles’ Creed says: Christ “descended into Hell” (Sheol). Thereafter He ascended from the world of Sheol into this temporal world. In that moment His body too, which thus far had been lying in the tomb, was raised and changed. This changed body passed through the stone tomb because it was no longer subject to physical laws.

Bűnbánat és imádság – a V4 országok püspökeinek (in Hungarian)

26. 3. 2018

Nagyböjti időszak csúcsosodik, belépünk a Szent hétbe. Emlékezünk Krisztus Megváltó halálára és dicsőséges Feltámadására.

A bizánci katolikus patriarchátus kéréssel fordul Önökhöz , a V4 országainak tiszteletreméltó püspökiehez. Ösztönözzenek húsvéti felvonulásra 2018. április 2-án. Ez a felvonulás legyen minden faluban és városban a családért és nemzetért.

Amikor Szlovákiat veszélyeztette a forradalom, sok hívő ígéretet adott Istennek. Napi két órát imádkozik, egészen Húsvétig, Szlovákia megmentéséért. Egy órat imádkoznak este 20-21: 00-ig minden családban. A második órat mindenki a számára megfelelő időben. Sokan hétfőn, szerdán és pénteken böjtölnek, meleg ételt csak este fogyasztanak. Isten meg hallgatta szenvedélyes hívásukat. De ezzel a lelki küzdelem nem ért véget. Továbbra is a V4 országokat fenyegeti az öngyilkossággal fenyegetett, Dublin IV és az Isztambuli Egyezmény. Olyan ez, mint Dávid és Góliát harca.

From Gethsemane to Golgotha (Way of the Cross)

a) 5 minutes – Introduction

Jesus is arrested: The apostle-traitor brought soldiers and temple guards with torches into Gethsemane. He came near to Jesus and gave Him a traitorous kiss. And the soldiers seized Jesus.

Jesus before Annas: They brought Him to the high priest Annas. He questioned Jesus about many things. One of the guards struck Jesus in the face.

Jesus before Caiaphas: When they had bound Him, Annas sent Jesus to the high priest Caiaphas. Caiaphas said: I put You under oath by the living God, tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God.” Jesus replied: You have said so.” The high priest tore his clothes and said: “He has uttered blasphemy!” The crowd began to shout: He deserves death!” Then they started to spit in Jesus’ face and strike Him on the head.

Last Supper and Gethsemane (reflection)

Last Supper

 

a) 5 minutes – Introduction

On Thursday evening Jesus celebrates the Last Supper with His apostles. The Passover is connected with the sacrificing of the lamb and with the Passover meal. This festival commemorates the passing over of Israel from the slavery of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Jesus came to deliver mankind from the slavery of sin and the devil.

At the beginning, Jesus washed the apostles’ feet. Thus He gave them the example of humility and love. Thereafter, He warns them against the spirit of betrayal, behind which is the devil.

Then Jesus speaks about love: No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s brethren.”

He also speaks about the Holy Spirit: I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth.
