Previous funerals were in Martha’s mum’s family.
Nnow it was the funeral of someone from Martha’s father family.
Previous funerals, that Martha couldn’t attend:
Dates of people’s from Martha’s family deaths:
December 21, 2016 – grandmother Zofia (Martha couldn’t leave Ireland)

I’m here for one and a half year already, but I feel like it was much more. Time passes very slowly, especially at nights. For time to pass faster I try to do whaever I can, and take what the prison offers.
I’m in a single cell, meaning I’m alone in the cell, so I feel safer. I wouldn’t like to share the cell for different reasons, among them thievery, lack of understanding, conflicts of different kinds, or bringing other girls to the room. I have a key to the room, and every time I go for dinner I close it.
Inmates are divided into three stages: basic, standard, and enhance. I am enhance, that means I can have two phone calls per day to my family or friends, every call for 6 minutes. I can also have two visits per week, thirty minutes each.
I work in the library and I get paid for it, + €3 per week (basic – €6, standard – €12, enhance – €15,60), meaning I have €18,60 per week.
Martha’s tragedy has no political colours.
It’s beyond divisions.
It moves both believers as non believers.
It’s also beyond any religious differences.
We thank very much everyone for remembering Martha and her case in your prayers.
We thank very much people of different religions, Churches, and religious associations.
We thank for all sincere, selfless and free prayers.
Martha’s case is also a subject of constant prayers of Martha’s family
We’re grateful for sincere help to all non believing people.
In the face of human tragedy, solidarity and unity is the greatest support you can give.
Easter is two events connected to Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ, whose name no one questions, and each religion only differ in their assesment of who he wasm and what role he played.
Those two events are:
1. The martyr, selfless death after an unfair trial and a scandalously unfair sentence
(As you can see, unfair trials, and grossly unfair sentences have a very long tradition)
2.Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
For believers, enormous hope flows from resurrection of Jesus Christ.
In the Holy Bible, a scripture recognized by many religion as a Word of God, St. Paul described this (1 Corinthians 15:12-14,16,17)
12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile
If Christ had risen from the dead then there is (will be) a resurrection.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then others will rise also.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then Csaba will rise from the dead also.
If Christ had risen from the dead, then milions of people who died will rise from the dead also.
If Christ had NOT risen from the dead, then… all Christian religions have no sense.
May faith in Resurrected Jesus Christ will be a source of enormous strength in waiting for resurrectiopn of every close ones, who died.
Someday this resurrection will take place…
