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 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.

I am thankful to have been born 31 years ago with no arms and no legs. I won’t pretend my life is easy, but through the love of my parents, loved ones, and faith in God, I have overcome my adversity and my life is now filled with joy and purpose.

When I was a child I was sexually abused by an older boy. We lived in poverty. I experienced occult practices, depression, homosexuality, and suicide attempts. Only faith in Jesus Christ brought light to my life.

The aim of the “Jesus Heals” prayer gatherings is experiencing the fact that God is Love. He is Love that wants to give itself to other people. God wants to show us His mercy even through healing, signs, wonders, and miracles.

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.

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.

Milujúca mama 2 dcér.

Keď mi bola zo súdu doručená Žiadosť o rozvod, bola som už – ako sa v kresťanskej hantýrke hovorí – zrelá kresťanka. Aj keď – ťažko viem definovať, čo vlastne znamená „byť zrelý kresťan“... že poznám dobre Písmo? Pána Ježiša? Je vôbec tu na zemi možné dobre Ho poznať? Alebo že som členkou cirkvi? A moja viera je tak pevná, že ma už nič nezlomí?

Aj keď som po rokoch manželovej nevery (a jeho odmietaní riešiť situáciu v prospech rodiny) Žiadosť o rozvod viacmenej očakávala, zlomilo ma to. Vždy som niekde v skrytosti držala v srdci nádej, že Boh niečo urobí. Veď je predsa Boh! On stvoril rodinu, On nenávidí rozvod, On je Pán celého vesmíru a On má moc všetko meniť.

Ale ako vieme – na slobodnú vôľu človeka – nikdy nesiahne. Veď čo by to bola za láska, keby bola vynútená? Bola by to ešte láska?

Až teraz, držiac zo súdu manželov Návrh na rozvod som pochopila, ako sa asi môže cítiť Boh, keď nás na jednej strane miluje (Milujem ťa večnou láskou a preto ti ustavične činím milosť) a na druhej strane nechá odísť nevďačného márnotratného syna... Nezastaví ho, nepokarhá ho za pochabé správanie,  nenazve ho nevďačníkom, ale dá mu, čo si žiada a prepustí ho z domu.  

Aj mne srdce kričalo Nie, nechcem rozvod, ale napriek tomu som do stanoviska na súd (ako odpoveď na jeho Návrh) napísala: Keďže vôľa k obnove manželstva a nášho vzťahu z manželovej strany chýba, a pretože láska je o slobodnom rozhodnutí, nechcem naliehať a nútiť manžela do niečoho, o čo on sám nemá záujem, čo by v ňom následne vyvolalo len odpor voči mne a väčšiu túžbu odpútať sa. Preto s veľkou ľútosťou, ale zároveň s vyjadrením odpustenia voči nemu – súhlasím s návrhom manžela na rozvod manželstva. 

Súhlasila som...

Hoci rozvod ako taký je veľmi nepríjemná skúsenosť, pre mňa a naše dve dcéry, ostal tento čas v mysli aj inak – ako spomienka na Božiu lásku, dobrotu a vernosť.

Boh mi znova dokázal, že On je so mnou v každom súžení, (Volaj na mňa v  deň súženia, vytrhnem ťa a budeš ma oslavovať), že bude bojovať za mňa (Ja budem bojovať za vás a vy sa budete len diviť), že sa nemusím báť, lebo On ma nikdy neopustí a nikdy sa ma nezriekne (Netras sa, ani sa nestrachuj, lebo s tebou je Hospodin tvoj Boh, vo všetkom a všade, kamkoľvek pôjdeš.)  A On bol so mnou. Bol so mnou, keď som sa modlila a potom zavolala deti ku stolu, (manžel doma nebol) aby som im oznámila, že sa  manžel chystá so mnou rozviesť. Povedala som im, že musím na súd napísať svoje stanovisko a že chcem, aby vedeli, že nerada, ale budem s návrhom súhlasiť.  Staršia dcéra (vtedy mala 23) so mnou súhlasila, mladšia (18) – bojovníčka, povedala, že ona by nesúhlasila.

A zrazu prišiel Pán. Začali sme sa modliť a žehnať manželovi a uvoľnili sme ho do Božích rúk, aby On mohol konať v jeho živote.  Vyjadrili sme v modlitbe odpustenie voči nemu a prosili Pána Ježiša, aby to dokonal v našich srdciach. Keď sme skončili, Boh nám dal zažiť Jeho slovo (Radosť Pánova je vašou silou) a požehnal nás radosťou.

Nebola to naša radosť, veď čo už sa len dá radovať pri správe o definitívnom rozpade rodiny?

Vstali sme, objímali sme sa a tancovali, plné Božej vzácnej prítomnosti, zatiaľ čo Návrh na rozvod ležal roztvorený na stole.  Mala som pocit, že s nami tancuje celé nebo. Nikdy nezabudnem na ten deň. Nie ako na deň pohromy, ale deň zjavenej Božej slávy a milosti. (Kde sa rozhojnila neprávosť, mnohonásobne Božia milosť.) Boh je verný. Nedopustí, aby sa sklátil spravodlivý...

Ani tu však Božia intervencia neskončila. Nastal deň rozvodu. Nemala som právneho zástupcu, ani žiadne vlastné stratégie. Jedinou mojou stratégiou boli modlitba a pôsty. Prišla som na súd a stretla sa – ako odporkyňa, na chodbe Justičného paláca s manželom – navrhovateľom. On mal so sebou právnu zástupkyňu.  A ja? Tiež. Zástupcu priamo „z najvyššieho súdu“, ktorý bojoval za mňa. Keď manžel uvidel, že som sama, poslal svoju právnu zástupkyňu preč a ona odišla. Možno sa hanbil, že si na mňa – samotnú ženu – privolal pomoc, možno čakal naťahovačky, boj... neviem. Viem len, že keď sme zasadli v súdnej miestnosti, sudkyňa sa na neho osopila, že právna zástupkyňa je účastníčkou konania a je povinná tam byť, keď si ju už raz najal a že ona to mala vedieť a ostať. Neostala. Súd sa teda začínal s nepríjemnou výčitkou sudkyne voči manželovi. Keď nás potom pred vynesením rozsudku poslala na chodbu, pri návrate sme sa s manželom rozprávali. Sudkyňa to postrehla a tak namiesto vynesenia rozsudku nás začala presviedčať, aby sme sa ešte porozprávali, keď potrebujeme, že ona počká, alebo môžeme odročiť súd, že to nemusíme ukončiť... Zjavne chcela, aby sme si to rozmysleli, čo sa asi nestáva často, keď sú už deti veľké, aby sudca bojoval za manželstvo. Manžel však trval na svojom a tak nás rozviedli.

Odvtedy prešlo 7 rokov... s exmanželom máme korektné vzťahy, občas sa stretávame, už aj ako starí rodičia s vnúčatami... a ja často myslím na mártnotratného syna a modlím sa za ten čas, keď sa vráti domov k Otcovi a On mu oblečie slávnostné rúcho a usporiada hostinu. A ak tam budem po jeho boku, nedivte sa.  Veď... (Bohu nie je nič nemožné!)

Good news

    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.

    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.

    "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."

    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.
