A peaceful night. In the East the war. Innocent people are being killed.  God, give us peace, and let the “great of this world” come to mind.

Today in our church is a special prayer of gratitude for those people who support the Church in the East. In the Polish church a contribution is collected for the church in Ukraine, among other places. Thank you for this help that we receive, especially since February 24. God bless. We pray for you Brothers and Sisters, and for our Benefactors. (photo)

The Word… A familiar image from the Prophet Isaiah, a fable or a prophecy?
“Then the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, the panther and the kid shall lie down together, the calf and the lion shall feed together, and the little boy shall chase them. The cow and the bear shall cease to be friendly with each other, their young shall lie together. The lion, too, like an ox, will eat straw. The infant will play on the nest of the cobra, the child will put its hand into the hiding place of the viper. Evil shall not be done, nor shall they work destruction throughout my holy mountain, for the land shall be filled with the knowledge of the Lord, like the waters that overflow the sea. On that day it shall come to pass.”
Come Lord Jesus, that this prophecy may come to pass, and here on this Earth, in Ukraine. “Come, Lord Jesus!”

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