We have survived another night. What will the day bring? We are waiting! We keep vigil! God, give us peace!

We received warm greetings from Br. Piotr Stasinski, general councilor. This is another sign of our fraternal unity and solidarity with the entire Capuchin order. Brother Piotr, we sincerely thank you.

The Word… A house built on the Word, a life based on the Word, is the fulfillment of this very passage of the Gospel. “Everyone, therefore, who listens to these words of mine and fulfills them, can be compared to a prudent man who built his house on a rock.” Which Word is being referred to?—”Hear, O Israel…” God is love and “thou shalt love….” and ” thy neighbor as thyself.” The foundation of your happy life even in war and with the daily cross! Come, Lord Jesus!

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

Unusual photos from Bucha… The war against the occupying forces is being waged, through the reconstruction of destroyed residential houses. Glory to Ukraine! Слава Україні!!! (photo)

There is still not enough electricity. The lights are being turned off, which greatly affects the economy of the city and the daily life of the residents including our brothers. God, give us peace !

We have a double invitation from the brothers from Lviv. “Marian Night of Vigil” and “Prayer of Worship.”

The first house chapter was held in our new fraternity. Br. Joseph Chromy, guardian and pastor, presided.

World Cup game between Poland and Argentina experienced during war time. We in Vinnystia watched without interference, other brothers, primarily in Kyiv, Krasyliv, had no electricity, no internet. Our realities, even in such perhaps insignificant matters… war.

Come, Lord Jesus!
