More than 30 rockets were fired at Ukraine yesterday. Fire protection systems are working. Explosions are heard over Vinnytsia. City transit is not working.
Alarms all over Ukraine. A second wave of rocket raids has already been announced. Russian terrorism does not stop.
God, grant us peace.

A total of 55 rockets were fired at Ukraine, 47 rockets were destroyed, 8 rockets hit their targets. Only or as many as… eight.
In all regions of Ukraine 11 people were killed, not military, innocent people.
Electricity is being turned off all over Ukraine. The worst situation with electricity is in Kyiv, Vinnytsia and Odessa regions. It’s dark, it’s cold, it’s hard to live, it’s hard for people to get home.
God, grant us peace.

This morning in our region calm. In Dnipro, in Kharkiv alarms.
God, give us peace!

The Word… Salvation comes from God !
“Have confidence in the Lord and do what is good, and you will dwell on earth and live securely. Rejoice in the Lord, and He will fulfill the desires of your heart. Entrust your way to the Lord, trust Him, and He Himself will act.  He will make your righteousness shine like the light, and your righteousness like the splendor of noon. The Lord strengthens a man’s steps on the path that is pleasing to him. And though he fall, he shall not lie down, for his hand the Lord will uphold. The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord, He their refuge in time of affliction. The Lord assists and delivers them, He delivers from the wicked and preserves them, for He is their refuge.”

Yes, yes… “The salvation of the righteous comes from God.”

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

We host more volunteer “angels” who are already returning to Poland. (photo)

Assisi, Italy:

Dear Fathers, I send enclosed the first pages of our newly printed magazine. I would like to thank you on behalf of all my colleagues for the opportunity to work with you in building a more fraternal world, which you have given us. We are with you in this difficult moment and hope to host you soon in the land of St. Francis.
Sincerely, Paolo. (photo)

South Sudan, Africa:
Br. Marek Miszczynski, our provincial, who is currently with the brothers in Sudan writes: “Good news! God be thanked for the benefactors! We are also praying for peace. Here in Africa people are also asking about the situation in Ukraine and praying. Greetings!”

Jesus lives!
