I need Jesus every day of my life. Jesus tells me in the Bible that without Him I cant do anything. I have the gift and capacity today to play soccer because God gave it to me.

I noticed a little lump on my neck and it changed my plans and my life. We will have to remove it, exclaimed my doctor. It is just a simple operation… I spent three days in the hospital and I waited three weeks for biopsy results. I wasn’t worried at all. I was a 22-year old university student, full of energy and vitality. I didn’t expect it could be something serious. On 22 February 2006 the doctor told me: “It is positive“. I didn’t even understand what it means. Everybody in my family was shocked – I had CANCER. I was confused. I had lots of questions and fears.

If I have to be punished for what I did – i.e. for the goodness, truth, and Christ – I wouldn’t choose the smallest punishment, but the most terrible one; I would be so happy if I could die for Christ, although I know that I am not worthy of such a great grace.

I knew about God, but I didn't know Him. I saw God only as a strict judge. One of the predominant feelings when I thought about God was a sort of fear. Today, I know I was completely wrong.

Yes, bones were my life issue. I was born with a fracture. Since then I had several fractures during all my childhood, every time I fell down. I spent a lot of time in hospitals. I suffered a lot. But I also saw other people suffering. It was for me great life experience, great learning experience. During this experience I understood that God is always with me and He never abandons me. This attitude of praise became (and it is continuously becoming) my expression of love towards God.

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.

During chemotherapy I lost my menstrual cycle. After about half-a-year I asked my gynaecologist – oncologist about that. I was afraid I was going to badly react to his answer. He told me:
“It’s normal. Your menstrual cycles will never return.”

I started to do fortune-telling and I said things that resulted to be truthful. I used to predict things that really happened in near future. Sometimes I read people’s thoughts. I disdained Christian religion. I had a bad opinion about believers and acquaintances who were not profound believers.

Despite persecution during the Communist era (or actually because of Communist persecution) my search of God became a continuous adventure. Pilgrimage and travelling rather than studying. When I studied at high school God came dramatically closer to me.

I always have wonderful memories of my return to God; still today they are pretty important. Everything happened during my university studies at times of normalizing Communism.

This epoch is not easy at all for Christians; but for big-format Christians it is a great and marvelous epoch. “If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.“ In such glorious moments the Church sings to the Lord a heroic song of love and faithfulness. It is a privilege and a gift: to live just now, to love, and to fight.

My core problem was – how can I trust God again?! How can I understand Him? What has happened? What we believed in before suddenly became not valid. We needed to reevaluate our faith from the foundation.

My conversion does not fall under the category “extraordinary”. I know you would like to hear about the miraculous conversion of a former drug-addicted or alcohol-addicted. I was neither drug-addicted nor alcohol-addicted. Maybe this is the reason why my conversion was even more miraculous.

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

I got more and more entangled in different occult practices. I applied myself to astrology, healing (reiki) and I practiced martial arts. Instead of prayer I meditated in solitude, which pulled me many times away from the life’s reality.

The director for CBR – the Center for Bioethics reform - CBR

In my story it was the Lord who was searching for me, while I left running away. It still fills me by amazement and gratefulness. At first He had chosen my parents for me - they had invited God to their marriage (that is hardly ever without any worries). They taught me to live the faith. My first communion was a spiritual experience for me. It led me to live my faith not only in church, but also elsewhere. However, since I was 8, I kept spending much time in ballroom dancing club until I was crashed by a motorbike (as 13 years old) on a zebra – crossing. This was the way how the Lord had drawn me closer to Him. Maybe He wanted me to protect me from the lifestyle of dancers, that is often far away from God. I quit dancing and joined a church choir in Michalovce (a small town in Slovakia).

Thanks to Salesian youth groups I started to grow in my faith that was still childish. Attending church and watching MTV at the same time was kind of schizophrenic (MTV became available on TV together with other channels after the fall of Communism).

On the secondary grammar school (Gymnazium P. Horov) I couldn’t resist the pressure of my peers: apart from school radio, I also started organizing discos, dancing balls, and various sport events – anything linked with entertainment and friends. I fell in love – he was a real atheist. We - logically - broke up and I ended with a broken heart.


Later I had it confirmed, when reading ‘Love and responsibility’from John Paul II. Love and responsibility’ :

“the opposite of ‘to love’ is ‘to use’. It is also to remain in a relationship until it stops fitting for one of the parties.”

It was the time when I started my university in the capital (Bratislava, SK). The broken relationship motivated me ‘to prove’ him that he will regret his decision. When I met the youth active in Christian politics, I liked it very much. I had never thought about being active in European politics. I had a chance to spend some time in internship in Washington, to join summer universities and took part on various conferences around the world – flying and learning new things. However, I had rejected spiritual support (which I regretted afterwards) and I though that Christian politics is enough for me. It was a big mistake, since youth Christian politics had been strongly influenced by liberalism in Europe as well as me, one of the leaders of youth platforms.

I was running away from God, searching my own happiness. However, with divided heart I kept attending Sunday masses and from time to time I went also to confession. Once my friends announced me the date of their wedding: I was moved by their personal life to that extent that I decided to go to general confession. When I told to an old Jesuit that I plan to move to my new boyfriend’s flat – he had a very clear answer for me: I had to choose: going to live with my new boyfriend or getting my absolution in the confession. I had chosen the absolution, and I am thankful to the Lord for that decision. Finally - everything was solved.

I left the politics so that I rearranged my spiritual life – I just wanted to look for God’s kingdom first. I was finishing my studies at the university of Economics when I saw a TV discussion about the abortions that started in Slovakia in 2001 (the Christian Democrats Party wanted to abolish it in the constitution). All the women participating there claimed the reasons ‘pro’ legal abortions. As a young lady I felt that abortion is an immense evil. On the next day I started civil initiative ‘Being a human since conception’ (Clovekom od pocatia), that was supported by several youth organizations. There was no other civil voice except the voice of the civic association ‘Possibility to choose’ (Moznost volby). I wanted to be the voice of women and of their unborn children, the victims of abortions. Step by step my life path started to open in front of me.

I decided to write my diploma thesis and later also dissertation thesis about abortions. I read about the tyrannous policy of the only child in China and I cried above the statistics of voluntary abortions – 50 millions per year according to the UN: we managed to kill such amount of people as in WW2 during 5 years! I studied the history of abortion legalization that started in the Bolshevik revolution and was spread around the world (as the Virgin Mary foretold in Fatima). Since then, the Evil structures had incredibly risen; they are financially supported by the richest people on the Earth and also supported by the UN. The biggest network of abortion clinics, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), is the biggest and the richest non-profit organization in the world. They are openly supporting the rather racist tendencies of the founder: Margaret Sander. They are getting incredible government support from the USA and other Western countries that have interest to eliminate the poor and ill people by means of abortions, contraceptives, sterilizations, etc. I could daily imagine the evil of this issue and it has motivated me to try and change the world.

In 2001, prior to my state exams, I knew that I won the internship for the European studies in Britain. I accepted it as God’s will. Before the study and also after it, I spent the summer in Brussels – lobbying against cloning, abortions in the Third world, eugenic methods used in artificial insemination. Thanks to contacts from Brussels I had a chance to watch more closely the prolife fight in Britain during my post-gradual study. Here I heard for the 1st time about the American Center for Bioethics Reform – I invited the founder to Slovakia in 2003 and organized meeting for him also in other countries in Central Europe. During his visit there was an idea born to publish pictures of abortions on Slovak billboards.

The desire that the Lord gave me into my heart came true after 4 years only. In the meanwhile, I worked for a development organization and was lobbying for London think-tank – against financing human cloning by European institutions. After we managed to turn it down in 2007 I returned to Slovakia and founded the Centre for Bioethics Reform. Then we organized campaigns to change the Slovak public opinion about abortions.

Through pro-life activities I met wonderful men. One of them spoke to me in Paris during the European pro-life march. He generously helped during the CBR campaign Stop genocide on summer music festivals in Slovakia. So I had the opportunity to get to know my husband, Andrew, during these events and activities. My recommendation for singles is to become involved in pro-life activities. Here you can meet the most valiant men.

    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.

    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.
