“It is often said that faith does not make things easier but possible” – said Defence Minister Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky in the video posted on his Facebook profile on Sunday, 10 December.


The minister, in the video posted with the caption Midday Bell at Brother Csaba Böjte in Erdély (Transylvania), went on with “faith in the idea that if we do something with good intention for each other and ourselves, putting great effort in it, it will worth it and will be successful”.

“Faith in the idea that ultimately we, humans belong together” – he added. He underlined that the example of János (John) Hunyadi teaches us to defend what is ours.

“We have to stand up for each other even if there seems to be no chance for success and everything seems to be lost, because we have to hold our ground against an overwhelming force. If brave and humanitarian people undertake to fight and, trusting in God, unite their strength, talent, knowledge and bravery, victory is always possible” – emphasized the defence minister.


“The Franciscan friar Saint John of Capistrano, from the same religious order as János Hunyadi and Csaba Böjte, was able to unite the people living here into one group, one army to defend their home from the conquerors. To the present day, their fight is commemorated by the midday bell ringing for prayer everywhere around Europe and the world, where Christians live” – pointed out Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky.

“Football teaches us the same. It shows that only those can compete who have thoroughly prepared in advance” – said Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky at the event of the Midday Bell Movement combined with children’s football matches.
