Beautiful Christian puzzle

Today, in the church I was amazed how everything incredibly fit  together in Christianity . A quick note in the homily by the priest started a domino of gradual awareness of the other contex…

Dnes na kazni v kostole som zasla ako vsetko v krestanstve do seba neuveritelne zapada. Vsetko to odstartovala kratka poznamka knaza v homili co spustilo domino postupneho uvedomovania si ostatnych suvislosti….

The note was about the meaning of the cross. All my life I was in the fact that the Christian sign is the cross, because Jesus  died on it. But not only. The cross is in reality a symbol of the main commandment, which is the same for both Jews and Christians.
So the most important commandment is: Love God with all your heart and with all your mind and with all your strength and love your neighbor as yourself.
The vertical line of cross personifies our love for God. It also shows the relationship between the God and a human. So the  God is infinitely superior to us, what is a fact and we cant do anything with it.
The love of a human to his fellowmen embodies the horizontal line, as all we are equal before the God. When I was smaller I didnt understand this word “fellowmen”.  I was many times annoying to my  parents, but I “admired” my favourite celebrities. Then someone said to me, the commandments mentioned the fellowmen/neighbour, not a human who “is far”. So that I should love the people with whom I have contact in everyday, not the people which I have never met in person…..
The vertical line is connected with horizontal in this symbol. So the life of Christian should look like that.
Ta poznamocka bola o vyzname kriza. Cely zivot som totiz bola v tom, ze krestanskym znakom je kriz, pretoze na nom zomrel Pán Ježiš. No nie len preto. Kriz je totiz skutocne symbolom hl. prikazania, ktore je rovnake pre Zidov i krestanov. Najdolezitejsie prikazanie teda znie: Miluj Boha celym svojim srdcom, celou svojou myslou a celou svojou silou a miluj blizneho ako seba sameho. 
Nasu lasku k Bohu zosobnuje vertikala, ktora zaroven aj ukazuje v akom vztahu je Boh a clovek. Teda Boh je nekonecne nadriadeny, co je fakt a my s tym nic neurobime. 
 
Nasu lasku k bliznym zosobnuje horizontala kedze sme si pred Bohom vsetci rovni. Ked som bola mensia pojem blizny som velmi nechapala. K rodicom som bola vela krat hnusna, no “obdivovala” som svoje oblubene celebrity. A tak mi ktosi povedal, ze v prikazani sa spomina blizny, nie “dialny”. Teda, ze mam milovat ludi, s ktorymi som v dendonnom styku a nie ludi ktorich som nikdy nestrela osobne…. 
V symbole sa vertikala spaja s horizontalou. A taky by mal byt aj zivot praveho krestana.
