Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 310
December 31, 2022
Morning quiet. Since 12:00, alarms. All of Ukraine “red.” Late afternoon and evening alarms. Over Ukraine kamikaze drones. Ukraine all “red” again. A new day begins. Positive temperature. More and more light. We wait to see what time will bring….
The Word… Jesus was born in the history of the world and your life story just because: “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. To all who received Him, He gave power to become children of God.”
Hence, today too when you receive the Word you will become a child of God again.
“There was a Word in the world, and the world became through Him, but the world did not know Him. He came to His own possession, and His own did not receive Him. But to all those who received Him, He gave power to become children of God…”
We live in war, we do not live by war.
Recalling yesterday’s feast of the Holy Family.
In the photos, people close to our hearts who respect the values of the family and uphold these values. (photo) They support our presence. We pray for our Benefactors.
Yesterday evening Eucharist, renewal of wedding vows. A wonderful celebration with the traditional korovy, which was distributed after the end of the Eucharist. (photo)
We thank God for our families.
News from the brothers:
Krasyliv/Kremenchuk (Bro. Leonid Kushniruk):
Kremenchuk today celebrates the indulgence and enlargement of the Christian community. Baptism of two children. They are children of refugees. (photo)
About 45 people attended the Christmas Mass. This is info for those brothers who used to speak out against building a chapel, because there is supposedly no future.
Jesus is born!
