Like every day, I thank God for the calm. It’s hard to call it peace, but peace in our area is. This is Vinnytsia and our Capuchin monastery.
In other areas of the city and other cities and in the capital, and at the Capuchins, in Kyiv, there is more no light than there is. There is no light, no heating, chilly. I won’t mention the lack of internet. Generators don’t take care of everything. This is war in a different way.
The real war… suffering is in the East and South of Ukraine.
We pray for peace. God, give us peace!

The Word… For such a Word, there is only one request… “Brothers: the Word of God is alive, effective and sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow, able to judge the desires and thoughts of the heart.”
Listen… “Your words, O Lord, are spirit and life.”
Listen… “It is not the healthy who need a physician, but those who are unwell. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
God is love!
God loves you!

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

Information from the brothers.

Krasyliv (Br. Maciej Styburski):
Some photos from the children’s oasis (8-12/13 years old) held this week. 93 children from practically all over Ukraine came. Children of displaced persons were present. (photo)

Uzhgorod (Br. Marek Lisowski):
Disregarding various difficulties, including restrictions on electricity supply, we are trying with our own efforts to prepare a structure that could serve the war victims in the near future. To this end, we are plastering rooms in our monastery to be used by children, adolescents and adults for therapeutic work, psychological and spiritual assistance. (photo)

Jesus lives!
