Alarms sounded during the night. Terrorist kamikaze drones flew overhead. Fire suppression systems were working. Thank God we are alive.

During the morning meditation, sirens are heard. Missile alert already all over Ukraine. God, give us peace!

The Word… The master appears, lying, manipulating and putting people in doubt. It is an evil spirit…
“Did God really say, Do not eat the fruit of all the trees of the garden?”
In another place… “If you are the Son of God…”
If God loves you, why are you suffering…? Constant doubts…
The answer is one: God is love. How do I know this?—God’s Word: “Open, Lord, our hearts, that we may listen attentively to the words of Thy Son.”
“Even to the deaf He restores hearing and to the mute He restores speech.”
God is love!

We live in a war, we don’t live by war.

Brother Leonid Kushniruk sent us Capuchins, a list of 16 young boys, men, who from a small village went to war.
“A census of boys from Slobodka who are now at the front. The village is small, and many were taken away. Let’s pray for our parishioners.”
“Ora et labora” From the same village, a piece of meat will give ZSU. (ЗСУ).

Brussels, Beligum:
President Zelenski’s visit to the European Parliament was met with great echoes, optimism and hope.
Let us pray for those who govern the states, so that they too will consciously, unconsciously fulfill the service of a just peace in Ukraine. (photo)

Ms. Tania… Again morning shelling. 10 explosions. Without light and water.

News from the brothers:

Br. Sergey Kippa:
Adaś W. is already in Kherson.
Our joint action “Medicines for Hospitals” with the Nazareth Sisters.
We are waiting for reports from him.
We pray for his safe return.

Br. Adam Wróbel:
The first day of our stay in Kherson. We sleep in a church, about 3 km from the Russians. We brought humanitarian aid with the Sisters: food products, chemicals and medicines. So far during the day we have heard one explosion. Night is beginning, they say, the most difficult time. We can already hear explosions outside the windows. (photo)

Jesus lives!
