7.40 am in Kyiv. Air raid alarms. Kamikaze drones attacked on the right bank of the capital. Media don’t mention human casualties. These were terrorist attacks on residential houses. Anti-missile systems are working. In our area of the left bank of Kyiv we live in our wartime normal. We are waiting to see what happens next. (photo)

The Word… Here’s the truth about us: “You were dead in your transgressions and sins… But God, who is rich in mercy… brought us to life with Christ, raised us up with him… For by grace you have been saved through faith.” “You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?” This is our reality. God is love!!!

We live in war, we do not live by war.

Belgorod, Russia:
Yesterday, information arrived about explosions at the airport in Belgorod. Not far from the airport is our house. Currently Br. Marek is there. Let’s pray…..

Retreat for young people: “On the way to Emmaus”. Brothers Victor and Sergey with youth. (photo)

At our monastery, another training of chaplains. (photo)

Now there is a danger of a kamikaze drone attack of the city itself.

May God bless us and may He guard and grant us peace.
