Testes estis (1 Tes 2:10)

The main Christian task is proclaiming the Gospel of God. Nothing else is such an important and urgent issue. Therefore, working night and day we don't forget to preach the Good News by our deeds and words. We are witnesses for our sisters and brothers who do not know how much God the Father loves them. Through our behaviour and attention we make them feel the divine love. 
We try to live as Christ lived and treat all the people as parents treat their children with love. Thus, we exhort and encourage them to walk in a manner worthy of the God's children. As members of the Christian family we rejoice in the Kingdom of God and build the Christian community on the earth. 
All the time we keep contact with the Lord and all the believers. Moreover, every day we grow receiving the word of God which works in us. We accept this holy word which makes miracles in our lives. Consequently, the love of God is truly perfected in all of us.

Facilius est camelum (Mt 19:24)

We sometimes think that richness equals happiness. However, it is not true. The goods which we receive are helpful but they cannot make us happy. It happens that a person is wealthy but feels lonely and unhappy at the same time. Since the people become joyful when they are rich in their souls.
The Son of God reminds that the true happiness is strongly connected with salvation. Nothing else is such an important issue in one's life. The human beings experience spiritual joy when they discover that the heavenly Father always takes care of them and looks at them. They are glad when they hear God speak to their hearts and know that everything is possible for their God.
Accordingly, everyone who follows the God's commandments receives the abundance of his gifts. Here on the earth the man of God knows that all the people are his sisters and brothers. Although some of them are good and some are not, everybody is loved by God the Father. Therefore, our task is to accept this truth and become similar to Jesus Christ.

Sinite parvulos (Mt 19:14)

God the Father loves his children and blesses them through his Son Jesus Christ. In this way, he teaches us what is most important in our lives. We are to love and bless our sisters and brothers every day and in every place. It's not something difficult to do. We just need our hands to be ready for good deeds, our lips that want to say blessings and pray for the needy. On the other hand, we are often the ones who need support, but we often forget or even do not want to ask for it. But Jesus is very kind and gentle. He invites us to come and embraces us with his brotherly love. Moreover, he reminds us that we are the children of the heavenly Kingdom. Here on the earth, we only start our journey towards the place which is our home. Obviously, we are not saints but we should do our best to become holier and holier. If we accept his blessing and allow the Holy Spirit to abide in our souls, we are able to share the divine gifts with others. Thus, we are the true disciples of Christ who act in the same way as he behaved.
