I need Jesus every day of my life. Jesus tells me in the Bible that without Him I cant do anything. I have the gift and capacity today to play soccer because God gave it to me.

I noticed a little lump on my neck and it changed my plans and my life. We will have to remove it, exclaimed my doctor. It is just a simple operation… I spent three days in the hospital and I waited three weeks for biopsy results. I wasn’t worried at all. I was a 22-year old university student, full of energy and vitality. I didn’t expect it could be something serious. On 22 February 2006 the doctor told me: “It is positive“. I didn’t even understand what it means. Everybody in my family was shocked – I had CANCER. I was confused. I had lots of questions and fears.

He prayed: "Father in Heaven, send your Son Jesus now to this priest suffering from kidney T.B., kidney stones and infections and restore him complete health of body and soul". Then I thought in my mind that he might have seen the hospital chart where my sicknesses were reported!

If I have to be punished for what I did – i.e. for the goodness, truth, and Christ – I wouldn’t choose the smallest punishment, but the most terrible one; I would be so happy if I could die for Christ, although I know that I am not worthy of such a great grace.

I healed my daughter who had bronchitis, after antibiotics showed no effect. I had a wart and it disappeared on the following day after I had used my homoeopathic drugs.

I knew about God, but I didn't know Him. I saw God only as a strict judge. One of the predominant feelings when I thought about God was a sort of fear. Today, I know I was completely wrong.

Yes, bones were my life issue. I was born with a fracture. Since then I had several fractures during all my childhood, every time I fell down. I spent a lot of time in hospitals. I suffered a lot. But I also saw other people suffering. It was for me great life experience, great learning experience. During this experience I understood that God is always with me and He never abandons me. This attitude of praise became (and it is continuously becoming) my expression of love towards God.

People ask me: What is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven.

During chemotherapy I lost my menstrual cycle. After about half-a-year I asked my gynaecologist – oncologist about that. I was afraid I was going to badly react to his answer. He told me:
“It’s normal. Your menstrual cycles will never return.”

I started to do fortune-telling and I said things that resulted to be truthful. I used to predict things that really happened in near future. Sometimes I read people’s thoughts. I disdained Christian religion. I had a bad opinion about believers and acquaintances who were not profound believers.

Despite persecution during the Communist era (or actually because of Communist persecution) my search of God became a continuous adventure. Pilgrimage and travelling rather than studying. When I studied at high school God came dramatically closer to me.

I always have wonderful memories of my return to God; still today they are pretty important. Everything happened during my university studies at times of normalizing Communism.

This epoch is not easy at all for Christians; but for big-format Christians it is a great and marvelous epoch. “If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.“ In such glorious moments the Church sings to the Lord a heroic song of love and faithfulness. It is a privilege and a gift: to live just now, to love, and to fight.

My core problem was – how can I trust God again?! How can I understand Him? What has happened? What we believed in before suddenly became not valid. We needed to reevaluate our faith from the foundation.

My conversion does not fall under the category “extraordinary”. I know you would like to hear about the miraculous conversion of a former drug-addicted or alcohol-addicted. I was neither drug-addicted nor alcohol-addicted. Maybe this is the reason why my conversion was even more miraculous.

The beatings would start and they would be slapping in the face, hitting in the stomach, sometimes kicking. “I struggled with faith, ‘Was God with me? Did He love me? If God is good why would He allow me to go through this situation?

But I was also interested very much in the communist ideals as in something that surpassed the ordinary life. So I became a member of a communist party – because I was convinced and I wanted it. And in spite of the fact I went to church and believed in God. I did not feel it as a contradiction

Then I directly felt that God is a living being, close to us. Back then, God, our Lord, clearly and expressly intervened into my life. He completely changed it. I became another person.

I got more and more entangled in different occult practices. I applied myself to astrology, healing (reiki) and I practiced martial arts. Instead of prayer I meditated in solitude, which pulled me many times away from the life’s reality.

Story - Katarína Randová


31 ročná mama dvoch detí, pracuje ako lektorka vo svojej firme

Môj život sa do istého momentu podobal tisíckam iných životov. Bola som naozaj sviatočná kresťanka. Taká, čo mala všetky sviatosti, no ani jednu nechápala naplno. Vo viere som extra nebola vychovávaná. Starí rodičia ma viedli aspoň máličko, doma sa však o Bohu nehovorilo.

A počuť od niekoho svedectvo o živom Bohu bolo nepredstaviteľné.

Čo sa však stalo, že som Boha našla? Že si s ním budujem vzťah, ktorý je jedinečný a výnimočný? Pýtam sa to sama seba tak často a napriek tomu odpoveď nenachádzam. Niekto vie presne, ktorý bol ten zlomový moment. Vie, kedy sa ho Boh dotkol a on sa obrátil. Ja ho nepoznám. Bola to skôr súhra viacerých momentov, vďaka ktorým som sa obrátila.

Počiatok mojej prítomnosti v kostole bolo prvé sväté prijímanie mojej dcérky. Nikdy som pečiatky a podpisy za sväté omše neuznávala, no v tomto prípade spravili zázrak. Bola som donútená do kostola chodiť, aj keď veľkou nechuťou. To, čo som vyžarovala, pôsobilo aj na dcérku. Ani ona z náhleho chodenia do kostola nebola nadšená. Raz sme zmeškali omšu v kostole, kam sme chodili a šli sme ku kapucínom. A tam sa to začalo.

Prvé omše neboli ničím odlišné od tých predchádzajúcich v inom kostole. No zrazu som pocítila obrovskú záplavu pokoja v srdci. Akoby sa ma niekto dotkol a povedal: „Som tu pre teba.“ Nevedela som ani čo a ani kto, len vo mne ostal ten pocit. Potom sa postoj „musím“ do kostola zmenil na „chcem“. Môj život odvtedy bol jeden obrovský zmätok. Chcela som si ho upratať a tak som sa pýtala. Ako viem, že sa ma Boh dotkol? Čo odo mňa chce? Prečo to spravil? A mnohé iné, ktoré si dnes už moc nepamätám. Čoraz viac som cítila Boha pri sebe. Po novom roku som si nevedela predstaviť nebyť v kostole alebo nemodliť sa k nemu. Prenikal ma pocit pokory.

Začala som chápať, prečo je bolesť potrebná. Že nás očisťuje a posúva bližšie k Bohu. No stále som nemala odpoveď na mnohé otázky.

Stretla som sa teda s bratmi zo žilinského kláštora. S každým som mala príležitosť sa rozprávať. Získala som odpovede na otázky, ktoré ma ťažili najviac. Hľadala som informácie, začala čítať Bibliu a Boh mi prihrával do cesty ľudí, ktorí mi pomáhali s hľadaním mojej cesty. Nielen bratia z kláštora, ale aj bývalá spolužiačka z vysokej školy Aďka spolu s manželom mi pomohli nájsť odpovede. A dodnes mám rada rozhovory s ňou.

Hoci moja viera nerástla veľmi rýchlo, klíčila. Boh sa mi prihováral, dával znamenia a ja som ho cítila. Bola však situácia, kedy som si už bola istá, že Boha mám pri sebe a zrazu sa odmlčal. Deň, dva tri, päť... Povedala som si, že ja toto nemám za potreby a chcela to nechať všetko tak. Potom si ma však znova pritiahol k sebe. Pomohol mi získať niečo, za čo som sa predtým modlila. Rozhodla som sa, že to s Bohom teda skúsim. Prešli dni, týždne a mesiace. Denne som ho hľadala, prosila a ďakovala a najmä pochopila. Pochopila, že Boha nemôžem ani mať a ani mu celkom rozumieť. Že viera nie je o tom, či Boh robí to, čo chcem ja. Že viera je o tom, že mu verím, aj keď celkom nerozumiem dôvodu. On sa vždy nakoniec ukáže. Že ako vraví farár z východu: „Život je skúška z jediného predmetu. Z lásky“.

Dalo by sa povedať, že môj život sa na dobré obrátil a Boh vyplnil prázdnotu v ňom. A že keď už som ho našla, tak sa mi nič zlé nemôže stať.

Chcela by som tomu veriť, viem však, že viera nám nezaručí ľahší život. Pomôže nám však ľahšie niesť kríž, ktorý máme. Ak moja viera a láska k Bohu bola do tohto momentu silnejúca, od momentu jedného vyšetrenia rástla míľovými krokmi. Potvrdilo to, že láska bez kríža neexistuje a kríž bez lásky neunesieš.

Pred rokom mi vyšli nedobré výsledky na HPV vírus, ktorý spôsobuje rakovinu krčka maternice. Keďže to nebolo veľmi vážne, čakali sme na ďalšie stery. Ich výsledky boli opäť horšie ako predtým. A takto sa to opakovalo ešte raz. Výsledky sa zhoršili, dokonca výsledky na rakovinové bunky vyšli všetky pozitívne. Mne sa vtedy zrútil svet. Ovládol ma strach a nedôvera, že tak s týmto Boh nespraví nič. Pochopila som, že čítať a uveriť príbehom uzdravenia je vždy ľahšie ako veriť, že toto Boh dokáže práve u mňa. V deň, keď mi zavolala lekárka oznámila výsledky, som bola v kapucínskom kláštore na Lectio divinae. Ja vždy povznesená nad problémy, usmiata aj v ťažkých momentoch, som bola zrazu tichá, na omši som plakala a pri čítaní a rozoberaní písma v skupinke, mĺkva ako ryba. Leskli sa mi len slzy v očiach. Ja a moja kamarátka Katka sme ostali zrazu samé s bratom Jankom. Keď som povedala, čo sa mi stalo, povestný úsmev z tváre sa mu na sekundu stratil, ale zachoval pokoj. Nechal ma vyplakať sa a porozprávali sme sa o tom. Okrem povzbudenia v ten deň toho veľa nemohol spraviť. Až neskôr.

Keď som vychádzala z miestnosti, stretla som na chodbe brata Leopolda, ktorý keď videl moje uplakané oči, ma zobral nazad do tej istej izby. Ostali sme sami, vyspovedal ma a dal mi pomazanie chorých. Z jeho rúk šlo teplo a pokoj. Neviem si to vysvetliť doteraz, ale neskutočné teplo. A pocit, akoby zo mňa všetko zlé odchádzalo.

Od toho dňa sa začal kolotoč vyšetrení, termín operácie, ktorý bol stanovený o niekoľko týždňov neskôr. Čím bližšie bolo k termínu, tým viac som mala strach. Boh stál pri mne. Posielal mi do života ľudí, ktorí mi pomáhali zvládnuť túto situáciu. Keď som bola na dne, zdvihol ma. Stále som ho cítila. A napriek tomu, že som ochorela, ani jediný raz som mu nič nevyčítala. Nepadla odo mňa ani tak obľúbená otázka prečo. Ani ako to mohol dopustiť, keď už žijem podľa jeho pravidiel. Jednoducho som mu zverila svoj život. A odvtedy ho riadil viditeľne lepšie. Od momentu, kedy som mu to dovolila a začala veriť.

Časom sa vždy ukáže, s kým si človek rozumie najviac. Aj ja som si našla svojho duchovného sprievodcu, môjho anjela strážneho na Zemi. Brata Janka. Celý čas sa za mňa modlil a nebol sám, o tom som presvedčená. Za moje zdravie sa modlilo mnoho ľudí. On však bol asi jediný, ktorý poznal všetky moje padnutia na kolená, keď som už nevládala. Vždy ma povzbudil, že Boh je milosrdný a mám veriť. Postavil ma na nohy, keď som pomyselne spadla. Niekoľkokrát. Keď som prestávala veriť a na prvý pohľad bolo jednoduchšie sa vzdať, mi Boh poslal do cesty jeho a on povedal pár viet a ja som znova mala silu ísť. Toto trvalo skoro 6 týždňov. Aj operácia prebehla v tom čase, zobrali mi väčší kus krčka na histológiu. Na výsledky som mala čakať 2-3 týždne. Prognóza – odobratie krčka alebo maternice.

Po 5 dňoch mi doma zazvonil mobil a volal môj lekár. So slovami, že nevie ako, ale som v poriadku. Rozplakala som sa. Vedela som, že to bol zázrak, pretože prognózy boli zlé. Že Boh dopustil, ale neopustil. Že to bola veľká skúška viery, v ktorej som obstála. Ale len vďaka sile modlitby, vďaka ľuďom, ktorí ma majú radi a ich modlitbám a vďaka láske k Bohu. Hneď v ten deň som obetovala svätú omšu za všetkých, ktorí sa za mňa modlili. Pretože modlitba dokáže u Boha vyprosiť zázraky.

Dnes svojím vlastným životom svedčím o Bohu a jeho milosrdenstve, premenách životov a sile viery. Rozhodnutie ísť za Ním ma stálo veľa sily, obetovania a nepochopenia od priateľov, no viem, že to stojí za to. Človek potrebuje sprievodcu na ceste a mať vedľa seba Boha, to stojí za každé utrpenie, bolesť či skúšky. Pretože On vraví, aby sme sa toľko netrápili tým, čo sa vôkol nás deje. Že to už je jeho starosť a naša úloha je len veriť a milovať. A ja Ho cítim na každom kroku, aj keď ho nevidím.

Good news

  • Raniero Cantalamessa
    he Baptism in the Spirit's effectiveness in reactivating baptism consists in this: finally man contributes his part -- namely, he makes a choice of faith, prepared in repentance, that allows the that allows the work of God to set itself free and to emanate all its strength. It is as if the plug is pulled and the light is switched on. The gift of God is finally "untied" and the Spirit is allowed to flow like a ftragrance in the Christian life.
  • Peter Hocken
    During the night between Friday and Saturday, in the early morning hours of 10 June 2017, the Lord called back to Him a great man, Father Peter Hocken. He died at the age of almost 85. He was a servant of God, a friend, a priest who loyally served the Body of Christ until his last breath, all the world round. The Lord gave him an extraordinary intellect and wisdom, together with the experience of baptism in the Holy Spirit. He also received from God the talent and ability to provide specific and comprehensible theological explanations and descriptions of spiritual experiences that are taking place within the Church, notably after the Second Vatican Council.
  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
    "I have a dream," he began, "that one day on the red hills of Georgia, sons of former slaves and sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. "I have a dream my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
  • Peter Dufka SJ
    We all know, based on our personal experience, that the cooperation with most intelligent people is not often easy. These people usually do not establish friendship easily. It is interesting also that university graduates with an honour degree usually do not fit in to the working environment in the best way and that their high intellect is of a little help in overcoming personal or marriage crises.
