The thoughts of Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus Tamás József
„I am the Lord, and there is no other” – we hear God’s words in the liturgy today. This declaration is present in all human history, as mankind had worshipped several idols instead of God. But this is the tragedy of mankind. Men try to quench their thirst with a drink that causes an even worse thirst. According to Aristotle mankind is open toward God. St. Augustin in his Confessions (written after a long search) states: “O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.” Our true destiny is to get to know God, get to love God, serve God. This is what we are called for in the Advent season. Let it be my own and most important aspiration.
