I invite everyone reading this letter to thank God for St. Francis and his charism, in which we Capuchins, thank God, share. Deo gratias!
BROTHERS and GOOD FRIENDS !!!! Best wishes of peace and good!
The Word… “It pleased Him who chose me while I was still in my mother’s womb, and called me by His grace to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach the Gospel of Him to the Gentiles. And they shall glorify God because of me.”
“O Lord, grant
that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love…”
God is love !!!!
We are living in a war, not living by war.
Yesterday, I visited the brothers in Vinnytsia. Praying together, fasting before the Feast of St. Francis. (photo)

In Krasyliv overnight stay and a short celebration of St. Francis with the Eucharist. God is Love.
In the evening, I received video wishes from our professor Br. Wiesio B. from International College of St. Lawrence of Rome. Thank you, especially for the wishes of peace in the spirit of St. Francis. (photo) Wiesio, brother, heartfelt thanks. And God willing, see you in Ukraine, already in peace and not in war. Greetings to all the Brothers at the College with its rector Br. Andrzej K.
Peace and Good.
Dear brothers! We are working on various fronts. I’m already returning to Dnipro after the end of a very fruitful retreat “Encounter with God” in Briukhovychi near Lviv. There were almost 50 of us, from Zaporizhzhia to Yavoriv. The atmosphere of joy and love was enough to transform lives, transform hearts. (photo)
Community Mass, October Rosary, and, well, Transitus. (photo) Well, and air raid alarms too…
May God bless us and may He guard us and grant us Peace.
