Yesterday was a day full of unrest, alarms all over Ukraine. Thank God the night passed peacefully across Ukraine. There were no gunshots even in eastern Ukraine. The morning was no longer calm. Alarms in some regions of Ukraine. Rockets fired from the Black Sea fly over Ukraine.

The Word… “Brothers: Faith is the surety of those goods which we expect, the proof of those realities which we do not see. It is through it that the ancestors received their testimony.”
“By faith…”
“Through faith…”
In this word, the most common statements that show God’s intervention and man’s response. A word that is fulfilled in your life by faith or through faith.
The second word: “This is my beloved Son, to Him listen.” Through faith we are also children of the same Father.

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

Today I am back in Krakow.

I received cards with intentions from Ukrainians living in the Vienna area, asking for prayers. One of them personally touched me.
“I wish the entire Ukrainian nation peaceful skies and health, so that the war ends with the victory of the Ukrainian army. Oleksander.” (photo of original)
Please pray for this and other intentions, for Ukrainians who had to leave their families and Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Our children from Ukraine from Dnipro, from near Kharkiv, Simferopol with their guardians came to the monastery to play together and… pray. (photo)

God sends good people. Brother Marek Krol, Mrs. Heidi, are angels who dedicate their lives, time, money to our Ukrainians, victims of the war in Austria. (photo)
Let us pray for our brothers and benefactors.
