Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 247
October 29, 2022
A new day. We are alive. God is merciful once again. In the evening long hours in the dark without electricity. God, give us peace.
The Word… “Christ will be glorified in my body: whether by life or by death. For to me to live—is Christ, and to die—is gain”. This Word touches me, not because I live it, but because it surpasses me.
I have one desire, for the Word to be fulfilled in me, but not by my own strength, desire, but by the work of the Holy Spirit Himself. And this is the good news, not by my power, but by the power of the Spirit Himself. God is love.
We live in a war, we do not live by war.
Last meetings. Eucharist presided by Brother Władysław, guardian of the local community, Brother Stanisław (pastor) and Brother Victor. Rafał’s homily and the closing word of the chapter—Br. Marek, provincial. For everything, for each brother, the new custos and his council, good people, God and people be thanked. (photo)

May the Lord protect us and grant us peace.
