God has given us to live through another war night. In the East and South of Ukraine, regular war against the occupying forces. One of the brothers prayed: Give our enemies conversion, but in their land, in Russia. May it be so. Amen.

The Word… God, give me such courage in faith: “… He said to him: ‘Follow Me!’ And he got up and followed Him.” How many less problems I would have had, if I had followed Jesus instead of going before Jesus. Courage, let’s follow Jesus. “Follow Me!”

We live in a war, we don’t live by war.

Today is the 45th anniversary of the death of our candidate for the altars, Venerable Servant of God, Fr. Seraphin Kashuba. Short film in Ukrainian: https://youtu.be/ttnJq0ZKf2Q

In addition to your prayers for his beatification, you can still join a symposium in Krakow, Poland this Saturday. We want to cordially invite you.

For those who will not be able to be present at Saturday’s symposium, we are preparing a broadcast on the YouTube channel of the Krakow monastery. Below is the link of the channel, this information can be passed on to friends so that they also have the opportunity to watch.

Sad news for the Croatian brothers and for us. One of the Polish volunteers writes:
Andro Fabijanić—a Croatian volunteer from Zagreb, a friend of mine, born on 31.03.1993–died on 12.09.2022. He died in Donbas! A wonderful man loved and respected Ukraine like me! He carried food and medicine for the people. (photo)

Wonderful Fanciscan youth. No less wonderful, but not perfect Capuchin brothers: Volodya and Igor. (photo)
