I tell you, my friends, don't be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.                But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him, who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.                Aren't five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.                But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don't be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.                I tell you, everyone who confesses me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God;                but he who denies me in the presence of men will be denied in the presence of the angels of God.

Message from the Editor, Love One Another! 9/2008

By Father Mieczysław Piotrowski TChr,
Love One Another! 9/2008 → The main topic


The passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ represent the supreme event of the human race and every human being. In the dramatic events of the Paschal mystery the God-Man accomplished His decisive victory and freed all people from bondage to sin, Satan, and death. This fundamental truth is the cause of our ineradicable joy and optimism. “Death, where is your sting? So let us thank God for giving us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Cor 15: 55-57).

In His boundless mercy, Our Risen Lord, Who lives and abides in His Church, extends to each and every one of us the gift of forgiveness of sins and eternal life. Those who believe and accept this gift every day experience — even now while living on earth — the joy of resurrection. What does it mean to accept the gift of Christ’s risen life? It means so ordering our daily lives that fostering our relationship with Jesus in prayer becomes our supreme task and responsibility. The Holy Father Benedict XVI tells us that daily prayer is a question of life and death for every one of us. It is not an option or an extra, but must be accepted at once as our greatest privilege and duty. Through earnest prayer and the Sacraments of Penance and the Eucharist we unite ourselves with the Risen Jesus and so receive His gift of eternal life and ineradicable love. Only those who persevere in prayer, who rise from every sin in the Sacrament of Penance, who receive the Eucharist with filial love, and entrust themselves totally to God, are able to bear with Christ the cross of their daily life and experience even now on this earth the joy of resurrection.

“Christ’s resurrection occurred at a given moment in history, but He still desires to rise in the lives of countless numbers of people, in the lives of every man and nation” – said Pope John Paul II in his Easter address of 1986. “This rising from the dead requires man’s cooperation, the cooperation of all people. But always overarching this resurrection is that other Life, which vanquished the tomb on that Easter morning so many centuries ago. Wherever the heart of man overcomes selfishness, violence, and hatred, and turns with compassion to one who stands in need, there too Christ rises from the dead.”

Dear Readers! It is thanks to your prayers and generosity that we are able to meet the greatest of man’s needs, which is his desire for God, and publish Love One Another Magazine in Polish, English, Russian, German, Slovak, Czech, Hungarian, Rumanian, Bulgarian, and Ukrainian. We are all responsible not only for our own salvation, but also for the salvation of others. Let us allow the Risen One to work through us and win over peoples’ hearts by His Truth and Love. Be joyful and courageous witnesses to the Risen Jesus! Write and send us your testimonies of your conversion. Tell us how you discovered the treasure of the Faith and how God continues to act in your life. We remember you every day in our prayers.
