This morning was generally quiet. Our people have a lot of patience and live humbly without light, i.e. it’s often in the cold. This is just the beginning of winter. Regular war in the East. God, give us peace!

The Word… Yesterday there was a prophetic Word for Lebanon, today for the people who inhabit Zion in Jerusalem. There is a prophecy for Ukraine, for us living in this war. “… The Lord will bind up the wounds of His people and heal their bruises from the ravages.” I recall the word: “only God can bring good even out of war for us.” “God didn’t leave Ukraine,” he said. “The kingdom of heaven is already near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out evil spirits. Freely you have received, freely give.” God is love!

Come, Lord Jesus!

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

Yesterday around lunchtime, alarms and explosions were heard.

Premises of sensitive infrastructure near Zaporizhzhya are burning. (photo) God, give us peace.

Vatican City:
“Destruction of civilian infrastructure during wartime—it is an international crime.” (Pope Francis)

“We are deeply touched by your constant kindness, solidarity and very concrete help,” reads a special Letter of the Roman Catholic Episcopate of Ukraine addressed to the clergy and faithful of the Catholic Church in Poland.

Wałcz, Poland:
A pleasant surprise: Br. Piotr Stasinski, general councilor, visiting the brothers in Wałcz, came to visit the Sowacz family (Teodor and Małgorzata)—my sister and brother-in-law. “Thank God for our great family.” (quoted by Brother Peter)
To God and to you Peter, thank you. (photo)

News from the brothers:

Brother Konstantin Morozov asks for prayers for Alexander, his own brother, who has been drafted to the army: “Please pray for my younger brother. They are taking him to the army. One ‘Ave Maria’ for Alexander.”

By the way, let’s also pray for br. Igor Mularsky’s (Vinnytsia)  brother, and br. Volodya Procko’s (Kamianske) nephew. Ave Maria. !
