God allowed to survive another night. A peaceful night… In Kharkiv, Kherson and other areas, war. God, give us peace.

The Word…

The Word, especially today, gives us very practical advice: “Therefore, do not make any judgment before the appointed time, until the Lord comes, for he will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will manifest the motives of our hearts, and then everyone will receive praise from God.”

The word is addressed to all of us, to those who are judged and those who judge:
“Do not make any judgment…”
“The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.”
Do not judge the Church of which you are a member. Do not judge Pope Francis. Do not judge. God is love.

We live in war, we don’t live by war.

First invitations to “Alpha Course” are out.
The first bell rings at the School of the Sisters of the Nazareth. Children gather in the premises of our pastoral center. If needed in the lower church, in our “shelter.” (photo)

We’re sending greetings from the relatively peaceful city of Dnipro.
We fight on various fronts. I was at the Dnipro Council of Churches today, and Vadym was in Pokrovsk at the hospital and even closer to the front line near Donetsk. Priests and pastors of the Dnipro Council of Christian Churches. (photo)
Three representatives of Caritas Spes, among others responsible for logistics and management, are hosted at the monastery. Today there was a meeting with parish Caritas directors from Dnipro, Zaporizhzhya, Kamianske, Kryvyi Rih, Nikopol, Pavlohrad (reports, sharing of experience). Tomorrow, the meeting will end. (photo)

Things are quiet in Uzhhorod. A liturgy was held yesterday with the participation of children and the blessing of school supply. (photo)

May God protect us and grant us peace.
