We survived another war night. We survived! To some others this was not given. In other areas where regular war is going on, people are dying. God, I ask you for peace!

I started a retreat for priests in Obukhiv, near Kiev. I ask for your prayers.

The Word… There is confirmation in the Word that I am called by God to happiness. The only way is: “Blessed are those who hear the Word of God and observe it.” To listen to the Word and to observe it faithfully in the heart—I enter into an intimate, close relationship with God: “My mother and my brothers are those who listen to the word of God and act on it.” This is the path of happiness. God is love!

We live in war, we don’t live by war.

Brother Victor is on the road—currently, with his brothers in Belarus. Pictured with Brother Andriy, who is also on the road…. (photo) Brothers, may Padre Pio guide you.

In our parish began the first “Alpha Course” after the pandemic and during the war. Most of the people are refugees, displaced persons. (photo) First cobblestones, laid in the square in front of the church. (photo) Let us pray for our benefactors. Deo gratias!

45 years ago, the Venerable Servant of God Seraphin Kaszuba [our friar who remained in the Soviet Union after World War II to minister to Catholics undercover—Henryk] passed away to the House of the Father. Let us pray for the grace of his beatification. https://youtu.be/9dRLSVxGFhc
Another night of vigil. This time with St. Padre Pio. We invite you to join us. (photo) Brother Casimir with the blessing. Let’s pray for our boys from ЗСУ (Armed Forces of Ukraine). (photo)

May God bless us and keep us safe.
