In today’s episode of Refreshing Bread, Fr. Calin Tamiian is reflecting on the focus we place on our material and spiritual security. Security is of great importance to all of us.

In today’s episode of Refreshing Bread, Fr. Calin Tamiian is reflecting on God’s wisdom and our foolishness. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. Fools despise wisdom and instruction. We are fools when we are full of ourselves. Yet in the fear of the Lord we will find the true knowledge. Are we humble enough to let God guide us in this season of Lent and hear God’s voice in the voices of our brothers and sisters?

Meditation by Fr. Cristian Laslo
Regarding the end of the world, Jesus reminds us about the words of the Psalmist: “Of old thou didst lay the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They will perish, but thou dost endure, they will all wear out like a garment. […] thou art the same, and thy years have no end.” (Psalm 102, 25-27). All the creatures have a beginning and an end, and all the matter will change its shape, but God will be always the same. In this life the mankind has the same faith: “…one fate comes to all, to the righteous and the wicked, to he good and the evil, to the clean and the unclean, to him who sacrifices and him who does not sacrifice. As is the good man, so is the sinner; and he who swears is as he who shuns an oath.” (Ecclesiastes 9, 2). The difference will be made at the Last Judgment by the way we have lived our lives.
The book of Isaiah prophesies about Jesus: “… he poured out his soul to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” (Isaiah 53, 12b). This verse is a good start when we meditate upon our lives.
In order to maintain the grace and the Truth in our lives, do we use the prayer and the biblical readings? How often?

Meditation by Fr. Cristian Laslo
The Roman soldiers are taking Jesus up to Golgotha for the supreme sacrifice. For them it was only an amusement, for the Jews a revenge, but for the rest of mankind it was an act of kindness and mercy, the supreme act of love for the humanity.
Mark 15, 20. 22. 25. 33-41
