Csaba Bojte

  • Csaba Böjte is a Franciscan monk, founder of the Szent Ferenc Dévai Foundation. The aim of the child rescue organization he created is to support children who are in Erdély harsh conditions, often on the verge of starvation. It currently cares for 2,500 children in its institutions and hundreds more in the foster care system.

  • Böjte Csaba civilként autóvillamossági szerelőnek tanult, majd miután ezt a szakmáját feladta, egy évig élt, és dolgozott bányászként a_cc781905 -5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_in Hargita. With this decision, putting his will power to the test, he mentally prepared himself for the papi track. His father was a poet, and because of a poem, the Ceaușescu-regime court sentenced him to seven years in prison, from which he was released four and a half years later. He died a month and a half after his release as a result of the torture and other trials he suffered in prison. For Csaba, this was a fundamental moment in his understanding that the problem does not reside in man, but in ignorance. As a result, he decided to become a priest. He applied to the Franciscan order back in the Ceaușescu dictatorship cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_1982, in the greatest secrecy. Tanulmányait Gyulafehérváron és Esztergomban végezte, mielőtt 1989-ben pappá szentelték. After serving as a priest in several places, in 1992 he was placed in Dévára, where his life took a significant turn. He took in some street children under his protection, and after breaking the padlock, they moved into the abandoned and vacant Franciscan kolostorba . The Romanian authorities opposed this move and repeatedly asked him to leave the building. Father Böjte's answer was that the police would put the children on the street. That didn't happen. The Franciscan monk who took in the orphans quickly became famous in Déva. Today, his activities are recognized throughout Transylvania, Romania, Hungary, and even overseas in Western Europe. Az alapvető életfeltételeken kívül (szállás, ruha, étel stb.) taníttatásukkal is foglalkozik, amibe vallási és erkölcsi nevelésük is also included. Not a few of them get into university.
