Letter from Br. Błażej: Night 224
October 6, 2022
We are alive. In other areas of Ukraine, people are dying, mostly civilians. In Zaporizhzhia, high-rise buildings have been ruined. There are people under the rubble. All this during last night. Kharkiv similarly. Odesa. Mykolaiv. Other smaller towns similarly. In some areas the Armed Forces of Ukraine are rubbing out the occupying army. God, grant us peace.
The Word… To be reasonable or not reasonable (foolish) With astonishment, St. Paul writes: “Oh, foolish Galatians….” No one wants to be foolish. What does it mean to be wise? The answer: “Open, Lord, our hearts, that we may listen attentively to the words of your Son.” Wise is the one who listens to the Word. God is love. God, give us peace.
I encourage everyone to pray in the spirit of today’s Gospel: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. ”
We live in war, we do not live by war.
