August 25, 2022 – Thursday. St. Louis.

We have survived another night. In our region, as in others, endless alarms. Apparently, the most peaceful Transcarpathia, in Uzhgorod there were alarms as many as 7. Thank God, we are alive. In other areas people are killed, very often civilians. God grant us PEACE.

The Word… The beginning of St. Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians…. is a Word of peace and grace for us. “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!” We experienced Independence Day in Grace and Peace. God is with us. God has not left Ukraine.

“Faithful is God, who has called you to fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

We live in war, we do not live by war.

Croatia is celebrating with Ukraine. Brother Jure, thank you. (photo)

From Poland motorcyclists, from the Katyn Rally by their presence and more, support us and Ukraine. May God protect you. (photo)

Among the days Rev. Prof. Waldemar Cisło, from the Polish section of “Aid to the Church in Need”. We are more familiar with the organization, our long-time Benefactors from “Kirche in Not”. Let us pray for our Benefactors. Mrs. Magda, we remember.

I invite the Brothers to pray for our Brothers, especially the sick and our Benefactors.

Peace and good! Greetings to all on Ukraine’s Independence Day! The celebration was disrupted by one alarm but as usual in Krasilow without consequences. At our place life is vibrant. In addition to fraternal, parish and refugee life, we have in the “Retreat House” a retreat of the children’s oasis led by the ministry of the School of Mary Greetings to all!

On the 23rd of August, three volunteers arrived safely in Malta for receiving an ambulance for the Ukrainian army. On the 24th of August there was a press conference, handing over the keys to the ambulance and a joint dinner to celebrate Ukraine’s Independence Day (see photo). On Thursday, 25.08. early morning departure by land transport to Ukraine.
We thank, on behalf of Brother Philip, the Capuchin Brothers of Malta and all the benefactors of Malta for the donated gifts! May God generously reward.

Peace. At our house as normal. Alarms, sirens, habit. The School of Evangelization is taking place. There are brothers, Andrew K. Mykola Sh. As always, domestic affairs.
May God bless us and keep us safe
