Adventi időszak

Adventus- latin eredetű szó, jelentése eljövetel,megérkezés. Az ünnep eredete az V-VI. századra nyúlik vissza, Jézus születésének ünnepére (Karácsony) való felkészülés időszaka.
Tágabb értelemben a reményteli várakozás, a lelki készülődés ideje.

Az advent 4 hétig tart, a december 25-e előtti negyedik vasárnappal kezdődik. Eredetileg 40 napig tartott (Jézus negyven napig böjtölt a pusztában), ám a Gergely pápa-féle naptárreform 4 hétre rövidítette. A keleti keresztények ma is január 6-án ünneplik karácsonyt.

Régen a keresztények advent idején szigorú böjtöt tartottak, hajnalonként pedig szent misére jártak. Ezeket a hagyományosan napfelkelte előtt tartott miséket aranymisének nevezték. Az advent első napjától vízkeresztig terjedő időszakban tiltották a zajos népünnepélyeket, lakodalmakat.

Az adventi koszorú készítése a XIX. században jött divatba, de a hagyomány gyökerei a pogány korba nyúlnak vissza, amikor örökzöld ágakkal, fagyönggyel, magyallal ünnepelték a téli napéjegyenlőség idejét. (A fagyöngy egyébként a kelták szent növénye volt. A téli napéjegyenlőség a kelta hitvilág szerint a fény újjászületésének ünnepe. A kerék jelentésű Yule- a fény visszatérésének ünnepe- szó az élet örök körforgására, az örök újjászületésre utal. Ilyentájt a kelták az ajtókra örökzöld ágakat aggattak, fagyönggyel, magyalággal díszítették azt. Ma hagyományosan fenyőgallyakból készül a koszorú négy gyertyával, melyek advent 4 hetét jelképezik. Uralkodó színei a zöld (örökzöld), a piros és az arany, melyek a karácsonyi ünnepkör domináns színei. Minden héten egy-egy újabb gyertyát kell meggyújtani a koszorún. Az ajtóra erősített, gyertya nélküli koszorú a szíves vendégvárást reprezentálja.


Karma moves in two directions.
If we act virtuously,
The seed we plant will result in happiness.
If we act non-virtuously, suffering results.
How people treat you is their Karma,
How you react is yours.
Don’t waste your time on
Those that hurt you will eventually face their own KARMA.
No good karma comes from bitterness, jealousy or negative thoughts.
Let positive thoughts grow from experience.
Keep your circle POSITIVE.
Remember what goes around, comes around.
Karma is very powerful and it really works 3 times faster.
I am a big believer in karma.
It’s so important that we are always truthful and
do everything with a clear intention because
God is watching everything and he really protects his children
Who have faith in him and has surrendered to him.
God is the other name for love and mercy but he does
Protect his children who have a pure soul from all
Negative energies.
I’m so thankful for his protection and his light.
Have faith in GOD.

the Trillion Dollar scandal

Dear Zoltan,

Over the last few weeks, you've taken action to stop the Trillion Dollar Scandal that is depriving developing countries of this almost incomprehensible amount of money every year.


More than 86,000 people stood alongside you and signed our petition. And as world leaders headed to Australia last week for the G20 Summit, we made sure they got your message calling for new transparency laws to shine a light on the murky world of global corruption.

So did they do what you asked them to? A bit. But nowhere near enough.

Anonymous shell companies that allow criminals to hide their dirty money are a big part of the problem. Leaders did all sign up to some broad principles to make sure all companies reveal who owns them, which is a good step forward. But this information won't be made truly public for you or me to see, or even the governments of many developing countries either.

Over the years we've campaigned for more transparency in the oil and mining sector, and thanks to support from our members we've had real success. So it was disappointing to see the subject almost ignored by world leaders at this summit. Making sure the wealth that many developing countries have under the ground actually reaches the people who live above it, will help reduce poverty and allow families to build brighter futures.

Together we've pushed our leaders hard, and there is no doubt our voices have been heard. But we need more than a few rays of light to beat this global scandal. We need dazzling sunshine.

So what happens next? We will keep up the pressure on the leaders to do more, encouraging those that have made already some progress to lead the way for others. We'll need your help to do that, so we hope you'll stick this one out with us. We couldn't have made it this far without you.

We won't stop until there are no more dark corners for this Trillion Dollar Scandal to hide.

Thank you.

Oh, oh, magnificent

I was born, I was born
To be with you in this space and time
After that and ever after
I haven't had a clue only to break rhyme
This foolishness can leave a heart black and blue, oh, oh

Only love, only love can leave such a mark
But only love, only love can heal such a scar
I was born, I was born to sing for you
I didn't have a choice but to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice from the womb
My first cry, it was a joyful noise, oh, oh

Only love, only love can leave such a mark
But only love, only love can heal such a scar
Justified, till we die you and I will magnify, oh, oh
Magnificent, magnificent, oh, oh

Only love, only love can leave such a mark
But only love, only love unites our hearts
Justified, till we die you and I will magnify, oh, oh
Magnificent, magnificent, magnificent

Sunday, Bloody Sunday


I can't believe the news today
Oh, I can't close my eyes
And make it go away
How long...
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long...
'cause tonight...we can be as one

Broken bottles under children's feet
Bodies strewn across the dead end street
But I won't heed the battle call
It puts my back up
Puts my back up against the wall

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

And the battle's just begun
There's many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

How long...
How long must we sing this song
How long, how long...
'cause tonight...we can be as one

Sunday, Bloody Sunday
Sunday, Bloody Sunday

Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
Oh, wipe your tears away
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Oh, wipe your blood shot eyes
(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)
Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

And it's true we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die

(Sunday, Bloody Sunday)

The real battle just begun
To claim the victory Jesus won

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Sunday Bloody Sunday...
