Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 345

A relatively peaceful night. Of course, in our area. During the day there were two alarms until and after lunch—all of Ukraine in red.
Night and morning were calm in our area. In the East, the defense of the Ukrainian troops persists. Bahmut is Ukrainian.
God, grant us peace!
At 9:11 a.m. the first alarm today across Ukraine.

The Word… A word simple and very concrete in life. Those angels of ours who fulfill this word are a challenge for us to do likewise. “Do not forget charity and mutual aid, for God rejoices in such sacrifices.”
We thank God and pray for our Benefactors.
“You set the table for me in front of my enemies.”
“The Lord my shepherd, I lack nothing.”
The Word is fulfilled before our eyes.
God is love!

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

Yesterday was the First Friday of the month. Traditionally, we went with Br. Igor to visit the sick. We met children, kindergarten children, who were crossing the road in great order with their educators. Nice view…

Just when the alarm ended, children were returning from basements, from shelters to their kindergarten. War. Unfortunately, it affects everyone, and perhaps especially children. (photo)

By the way, it is no secret that these people support us Capuchins, the General Curia in the ministry of the brothers. God bless you all.

News from the brothers:

Vinnytsia (Br. Blazej Suska):
Thank you Brothers and all our Benefactors for your prayers and remembrance. Thank you.

Jesus lives!
