2 Sundays after Christmas Joh 1, 1-18

Have you thought about your faith? Above the faith of the family, the surroundings, of the nation? I recently met a man who is a role model for many social and spiritual and laid down his burden for me, which he began with the words: “I stop believing! I have more and more difficulty living as a Christian, praying, going to church, keep this or another commandment … “
We could read various statistics before Christmas. For example, in the Catholic In Spain, 82% are Catholic and only 4.4% atheist, but 46% no longer attend the church.6% And in the same state, the number of people who go to church everyone is growing a day, or several times a week. The same Press Office (KBS) reports on the rise of Orthodox believers in Russia. Since 1988, the Russian Orthodox Church has grown rapidly. At present, 13,047 parishes in Russia are cared for by 13,048 priests and 1905 deacons. The number of parishes in the former USSR’s whole territory – canonical territory Moscow Patriarchate – is 22 000. In 1988, there were only 6800. Russian Orthodox Church has 569 monasteries (1988 – 17) and 121 clergy educational establishments of various levels (1988 – 5). He works in 130 dioceses with 156 bishops. The number of believers is estimated at 50 to 80 million. Another report talks about the impact of Santa Claus on children in many countries. They don’t know who Jesus is. And, for example, they point to the difference between Santa Claus and Jesus:
JESUS: -is everywhere among us – is always present to help, he offers
health, help, and hope – he knows our name before we are born, he knows our past and future – we can rest in his arms – face door and knock, he will not enter until we invite him – he became our gift and died on a wooden cross.

SANTA CLAUS: – lives in the North Pole, comes only once a year – can
offer your “hou, hou, hou” – he doesn’t know our name, and he can only ask little girl or boy, what is their name – we can sit on him at
knees – comes through the chimney without invitation – gives gifts under the tree. And perhaps another report from December 19, 2012:
BRUSSELS (CTK) – The European Commission yesterday confirmed that the union institutions do not affect whether the individual Member States will be on Sunday or some other day. The question arose in connection with speculation in the Italian press that the European Union “canceled Sunday.” Cf .: Internet KBS 2012. Cites CIS – Spanish Center for Social Research.

I don’t want to tire you with news in church. Let’s think about the words two thousand years old: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and that the word was God. It was at the beginning with God. Everything arose through him, and without him, nothing of that arose. There was life in him, and life was the light of the people. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not receive it … ”(Johannes 1: 1-4). These words were written by one of the Twelve, whom Jesus invited as an apostle. He writes these words as the last living apostle, the older man. He survived three years with Jesus. Not only that, but he was at the cross of Jesus, at the empty tomb, at the ascension of Jesus and the descent of The Holy Spirit on the apostles and many in Jerusalem. He preached the gospel for more than fifty years. You suffered a lot for Jesus … He wrote the gospel, which still leads many to life issues today. He wrote three letters, which are so short that they don’t have a single letter, and we call them books. Furthermore, he is the author of the last one of the New Testament books, the Book of Revelation, or the Apocalypse, over which you are today theologians break their heads. Still, they are wrong, and many sects personalize it as the basis of their learning. John called Christ Jesus, the Son of God Logos – Word. John was a philosopher, familiar with the Greek poetry of the time. John was an orthodox Jew. John believed in the deity of Jesus of Nazareth. He accepted Jesus as expected and the predicted Messiah. He witnessed Jesus’ sermons, miracles, signs.

John alone did not die a martyr’s death, even though he suffered a lot for Jesus. An eagle represents John. A bird that has a view from above. He sees more than you down. He has a sharp view; he can distinguish, evaluate, he can take a stand. When are being they the last to read the books of Scripture that John wrote? Faith. What is faith? Who believes and who does not believe? How to come to faith and how to believe to lose? Can faith be associated with science? He lived his whole life as an unbeliever but buried; he wants to be a believer. He declares that he does not believe, but when the disease comes, he calls: God, help, God! Another person fulfills his duties, tries, but sees his falls, mistakes, mistakes of life, and asks if he is a believer. A journalist before Christmas writes:
Last Sunday, after a long time, I was in church for Holy Mass and had enough of me surprised how many young people there were. Sympathetic, sub-factors even with one small child. It was literally a cultural experience because even the parish priest was a teenager, he spoke nicely in appearance, and nice songs were also heard. I felt at it.
In the temple of God, young people find encouragement to the next difficult of life – moreover, of course, they are brought closer by the love of God. But it is already the personal affair of each person, whether he is a believer or not. It is important that they found a way to fulfill the meaning of their lives and not give up on all sorts of crooked sidewalks. But – the opposite situation.

I will come under the evening in the early evening – all tables occupied by young people, some girls are not even fifteen years old yet. In one hand, a glass of wine, in the second cigarette. Of course, not the cheapest, because it would be a shame to smoke some funny marshy. But where do young people get their money? When I talked about it with an acquaintance of mine who is the restaurant’s head, he explained it to me clearly. He offered a wedding to a young boy to a cook who didn’t have a service, whether he would not “sacrifice” for 250 crowns and fed the bride and groom. The answer? Come on, boss, but “take a picture” of me anytime he’ll give five hundred to get rid of me. I will not do it for 250 crowns!
Here, too, is the answer to the question of who is actually spoiling our youth, unfortunately, even by my parents. Naturally, solvent, as they say, modern rich people – There is only one thing that does not occur to me:  What do solvent parents want to achieve? Such youth should be  said) the wound holder? With their parents’ kind permission, she sits in a pub every day and doesn’t even dream about an honest robot? I do not doubt that the young people I saw in the church don’t come from wealthy families, they are definitely trying to earn some crown for a living, and there is a guarantee that they will do their best not to get them wrong in life. But his skill. And it is such people who need to be supported if they are to be our nation educated, healthy, and eaten. It is not appropriate for us to condemn someone for not paying enough or a reasonable time of faith. We know that judgment belongs to God. God is merciful. It’s our duty to care for and strengthen ourselves in our faith. We also have a duty to our brothers and sisters, and we must not be indifferent to how they live, in what they believe, what their faith is.

It’s Christmas. It is a time not only of customary, folklore deeds of faith. It’s time to unite in what Jesus preached, which is infallible today in matters of faith and morals, are taught by the Magisterium of the Church. Yes, it’s time to make decisions. Not hasty, not under the influence of the holidays’ emotions, not out of fear, but under the influence of The Holy Spirit, his grace, perhaps to begin with one regular Father.

By deciding not to miss Sunday Holy Mass. By giving up something
concrete, what we can, what is in our power, possibilities … Who has it easier? Believers or unbelievers? We’ll find time as soon as possible and let’s think. Let’s take the situation of the believer and unbeliever. Let us analyze the pros and cons for and against the believer and unbeliever. What it brings faith and what unbelief gives. And let us reevaluate our life of faith. Your faith in practice in specific situations, attitudes, opinions, our example, and our outrage …Cf .: MUCHA, F .: Ah, youth. Category: Retrospectives. New day. In .: http://www.tkkbs. It’s Christmas, after all. The trip to the church and the time spent in it must not be unnecessary. After all, we are people endowed with reason and free will. We have responsibility for ourselves and others. Let’s read, listen, think, study, ask … We must not behave: where the wind, there is the cloak. Time has passed tire turning … It is Christmas – time to stop and see the goal, the meaning, the mission, the content of our life on earth.
