Letter from Br. Błażej: Night 195
September 7, 2022
A quiet night. During the day, very often you can hear and see planes taking off. Whether these are exercises, it is difficult to say. That dark spot above our monastery. (photo) We are alive and thanks be to God.
The Word… I am amazed by such an acceptance that Paul has of different ways of life, of vocation. Christianity is not a sport or a race, who will be first, better. It’s a way of life and in that life, vocation is to see God who loves me as I am. Yes, God loves you as you are today.
A Word from the retreat: GEDEON, full of fears, complexes, unbelief. Just because God has chosen and called him, he overcomes his opponents with the same fear. Book of Judges chapter 6 and on. Later St. Paul, will say: “power in weakness”. He personally finds himself in this Word. And you? God is love! God loves you!
We live in war, we do not live by war.
It’s Br. Volodya’s from Kryvyi Rih birthday today. Brother, многая літа, 100 years. May God grant you peace.
We begin the third day of the retreat. Oremus.
We remember in prayer for our brothers who are sick. Mary, Healing of the sick, pray for us. St. Padre Pio, pray for us.
We pray for those Brothers who, for various reasons, could not be with us at the retreat, especially the Brothers in Russia.
The distribution of humanitarian aid to refugees, displaced persons and the needy continues in Starokostyantyniv. Let us pray for our Brothers and Benefactors.
May God show us His true face and bless us.
