A calm night. In Kyiv the morning was without electricity. Common prayers by flashlights, phones, as who can. On the front fierce battles. God, give us peace!

The Word… Yesterday a blind man at Jericho, shouted, “that I may see.” Today, another who does not see because he is of small stature—does not see Jesus. He embarrassed himself, climbs a tree and is seen and hears, “Zacchaeus, come down quickly, for today I must stop at your house.” “Today salvation has come to this house, for he too is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man has come to find and save that which was lost.” We are Children of God, and we are called to see, to hear, to love means to be happy. “Christ the leader! Christ the king! Christ, ruler over us.”

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

Our President, V. Zelensky, visited Kherson liberated from Russian occupation. He has courage. Congratulations, Mr. President. (photo)
A resident of Kherson, a patriot of Ukraine buried a Ukrainian flag under a sidewalk slab. The time has come… to bury the flag out and manifest. Kherson is Ukraine, Херсон це Україна. (photo)

Our children rejoice, and rejoice, with sunshine in the Ukrainian calm sky. Deo gratias! (photo)
