Beica de Jos, Transylvania, Romania, December 16, 2021
The house where the Balazs family was living was recently sold, leaving Irimie, Tunde, and their eight children homeless.
However, thanks to the charity of local clergy and faithful, the family has a new place to live in time for the feast of the Nativity of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The family first turned to Fr. Valentin Vârva, a cleric of the Reghin Diocese, who in turn got several parishes involved in supporting the family, reports the Archdiocese of Alba Iulia.
In particular, Fr. Ionuț Timoce and the parish in Beica de Jos in Transylvania offered the parish house, providing the family with two rooms, a kitchen, a pantry, a bathroom, a yard, and outbuildings. The clergy and faithful of several other parishes also donated furniture, appliances, firewood, clothing, shoes, and money, in addition to a considerable amount of food.
“The Balasz family gives thanks for the almsgiving and wishes all happy holidays, and we, the Lord’s servants, pray to the Christ Child to pour out His Heavenly blessing on all, granting health, peace, and joy to every family,” the report concludes.
