Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 238

Capuchin Communications

October 20, 2022 Thursday

We are alive! Thank God. Yesterday lunchtime alarms and air strikes of rockets, kamikaze drones started. The alarms covered all of Ukraine. God protected us. We are alive!

What has the occupier prepared for us today. We are waiting… Time: 10:15 am across Ukraine in alarms.

Word… Often on the Internet there were photos of kneeling soldiers at the Eucharist, at prayer. Important was the comment, under this photo:

“He who kneels before God does not kneel and bow to the enemy.” This is the spirit of the word:
“Brothers: I bend my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name, that according to the riches of His glory He may cause in you by His Spirit, that the inner man may be mightily strengthened.”

Our strength, is the Spirit of the Father, who “strengthens” in us and gives us strength…. Heroes do not die! Герої не вмирають !

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

I encourage you to listen to the music video “U mnie nie ma domu” (I have no home). Touching:

As Brother Sergei, Superior in Vinnitsa wrote below, we welcomed long-awaited angels who brought gifts for our refugees and displaced persons – Capuchin friars from Poland from Mogilno, gave us gifts in Krasilow, Vinnitsa and Kiev. (Photo)
With gratitude we pray for our brothers and benefactors. I personally thank Br. Luke, the provincial of Warsaw, for the support of our angels, Brothers John and Henry. God bless. God is love.

May God protect us and grant us peace.
