    How to understand the words of Jesus:  «Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of Me…»

    This utterance has a very deep meaning, but, unfortunately, many people do not understand it. Any misunderstanding leads to opposition and brings a person to the wrong way. How can we explain the words of Jesus from the Holy Gospel in a right way? Having read or heard them somebody think: "How could it be? If I have father and mother, how shouldn’t I love them? How shouldn’t I help them? How can I leave everything and just follow God, serve to God only, and forget about my relatives?" No, our God Jesus Christ meant: a person who loves his/her relatives and neighbours more than loves God cannot be truly happy and cannot sincerely follow God.

  • How can we protect ourselves and our children from the hard diseases?

    How can we protect ourselves and our children from the hard diseases?

    Jesus Christ says that a man gets ill because of his sins or his parents’ sins. It looks very easy – just live religious life and your kids and you will be healthy. It is a pity, but in our life everything happens in a very different way. Because we all are weak and poor, even those who visit the church.

    Confession as the tool for happiness

    The happiness is such a short word, but it absorbs all human needs, dreams and desires. People make huge mistakes when they try to chase it and later people pay for it with the great sufferings.

Would you like to climb up on the tree and look at prophet Jesus, at Messiah, to look at Him with hope that He would come to your house? Would you like to do it? Surely. But a lot of time passed. How can we do it now?
