    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.

    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.

Story - Dária Miezgová
The seeking of happiness & fullness of life is permanent

 

My searching of God or my looking for fullness of life and happiness is still in process. While I am writing this – I do not think I have run to the finish already - I am still in this process of searching for it.

However, there was a point that had changed the direction of my life.

I was brought up in a Christian but not complete family. I lived with mother who sincerely trusted to God - her faith was alive and reflecting in a real life. She wasn’t a fanatic - on the contrary - her attitudes were very rational. She was strict but full of love. In spite of that I wanted to leave our house very soon. I was looking for ideals, for something that goes beyond the mundane life, something that was worthy to fight for.

In order to study at secondary school I had to live in a school dormitory in the capital (Bratislava, SK). It was the period of Communism when we were told everything: what to do, what to think, what we shall like, etc. and there was always my inner rebel who wanted to know what is beyond, what to fight for – simply I was an idealist (or a naive) - and an extremist at the same time. I was active in every possible activity available in Bratislava. There were discos that were not suitable for me, unofficial literature that attracted me, etc.

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.

Communist ideals seemed to be the same as Christian ideals. I lived to the full, I participated in many activities and I read Lenin & Marx’s books. When I did not understand something I wrote to Moscow.

Today I am thankful to all, namely to my mother who was with me, who did not understand me at all – but silently remained with me.

In this idealist enthusiasm I applied to study politics at a university. The idea of receiving special favours (such a common thing at that time) did not even come into my mind, I was such an honest communist. When they refused to accept me at university – I reacted on my own: I wrote to the President, to the Communist Committee, etc.…and the result was that I could enrol into two different faculties. Here came my first hesitation. I started to study at the faculty of Automatic Control Devices, not at the one of Political economy. I achieved what I wanted.

But things started to change – during my university studies I understood that the communist party was basically for all just a springboard for a wonderful career and that the main aim of each communist party’s meeting was to repress religion. Moreover, at that time my mom had diagnosed cancer – so I suddenly found myself at the crossroads of life. And to make it even more interesting – I broke my leg when I was participating on my first political activity… Mom was in the hospital, the party machinery was also far away and I remained alone.

Eventually, I started to think about the source of anxiety and restlessness in my heart. What shall I do to find peace? What was the root of my turbulences?

At that time I got a book “Filotea (a guidance for a religious/pious life)” from St. Francis de Sales. I liked it and as I read it – I felt peace, joy and longing for God. It was a completely new and wonderful experience for me. All of a sudden I understood that I am to decide between the service to God or to a political party or - my starting career… Thanks to Gods Mercy I had decided for Him, what in reality meant I returned back the partial membership card and resigned the membership. During the period of normalisation (1960-70s) it was not an easy decision

– and the consequences were tough: immediately I had to leave the university, I was interviewed at the police office and persecuted; I had no chance to find a better job, I even could not travel abroad. However - after many years I can give evidence that God’s Mercy was always with me and He never forsaken me.

My decision for the Lord had had many repeats, but in all I learned one thing: if a person honestly searches God – finally will come to Him, because He is not hiding to us. He is going to meet us
