Restaureted church of Iacobeni Romania

Restaureted church of Iacobeni Romania

Ziarul de Sibiu June 7th 2006

God is dead, the atheist told me.
I told him: That’s strange, I have just talked to Him.
Yesterday’s relics, the communists and the atheists, still exist in great numbers in Romania, this most wonderful and still so morally destroyed country. They still spread their poison, they haven’t learned anything yet, they do not want to accept the new reality. They live by the former patterns, by the former doctrines, by the former hatred and eternal contempt towards people and God. But they are still here and too many of them occupy important positions.
I am currently experiencing all this myself. I am harassed and humiliated and even the judiciary police pursues me for having restored the church, a historical monument of the 14th century, and for having brought it back to life, not as a historical building but as a house of God, as a temple of our God. We naturally have to take into account tradition, a historical monument must obviously be presented like that nowadays in order for us to see both the history and the present. We are only human, believers of this century.
We are respectful
We respect the heritage of our ancestors, but we live today and our ancestors do not ask us to give up progress and modern technique. And neither does God. I do not want to get into details and tell you what hilarious things I am being reproached. Yes, the arguments go as far as statements of the kind: ”We should have left the church deteriorate completely...” Those that say this betray themselves as being former comrades bound by the same principles, who do not care to help people but wait for the right time to thwart their plans, to stop their ascent. In God's eyes they are nobodies, they are lost and corrupted. And their doctrine is perverted. ”Tribuna” newspaper (formerly a newspaper of the communist party) dared even to announce on its first page ”Don Bosco mutilated the Church”.
They are the ones
They are the ones that are invariably ignorant and say that God is dead. They become horrified when the church fills up with life again. You have no idea that Don Bosco is a saint who dedicated his life to the poor and to the abandoned children, who built many churches and who now lives in Heaven. How could he mutilate a church? Are the journalists of ”Tribuna” illiterate? No, they either cannot or do not want to make a correct journalistic research, according to the ethics of their profession. They ignore the fact that on Sundays hundreds of believers come to the divine service from the Ecumenical church of Iacobeni. Or maybe this is something that bothers them terribly. They ignore the congratulations and praises of hundreds of international tourists who write messages worthy of being highlighted in the guest book. Yes, you can cry out all you want, you poor spirits. It is not God who is dead, but your communist words and intrigues.
We are all acquainted with the human typology that does not live in reality. These people have withdrawn into their fantasy and have built an imaginary world where there is no God, a world similar to the one they accepted without checking it, and mistake this imaginary world for reality. They transform doubts into facts, their suspicions are certitude and they want to turn all their untempting dreams into reality.

God is dead

They say ”God is dead”. They mistake their lack of belief for the reality and live in an imaginary world. The situation is similar to the one from the psychiatry hospitals: patients consider themselves normal and think that the doctors and the nurses are the insane ones.
Oh, how I pity you, you former Reds. How many of you are there still in the editorial offices of newspapers? You have caused so much affliction and you continue to scream: ”Don Bosco mutilated the church”. When will you give up? When will you finally make room for new people, especially young people? Anyway: any true Christian will welcome you with his arms wide open, will be glad to tell you Christ’s message and will invite you to see that God is truly alive and that talking to Him and following His word is an accomplishment. When will you finally understand that the old church of Iacobeni is first of all a house of God, where one can pray and talk to God, and that our ancestors join us in this prayer out of the ancient walls.
But that’s strange, I said, I have just talked to God! Oh, yes the communist obviously does not have God’s phone number. But I would have gladly given it to him.
I wish you a great weekend, full of peace and a refreshing Sunday service. Everything will be all right. Remain loyal to me.

Yours truly
