Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 367
February 26, 2023
Almost all of yesterday, a day full of alarms, anxiety, war standard. Sunday morning calm.
The Word… Let this Word become a light and inspiration to listen to the Word of God. “For as through one man’s disobedience all became sinners, so through the obedience of the One all will become righteous.” By listening, by obeying, we become happy children of God.
We live in a war, we do not live by war.
Assisi, Italy (from Br. Marek Miszczynski):
Sergei and Blazej, I send greetings from the brothers (Matteo and Carlo) and lay associates (Paolo and Michele) of Assisi. Yesterday, from morning until evening, there was prayer for peace in the Basilica of St. Francis and in the Portiuncula (and throughout the city in general), in various forms (Masses, liturgical celebrations, marches and probably privately as well). And in the evening there was a concert “We are all brothers. Music for Peace,” which attracted more than 1,000 people and after which offerings were collected for our Kiev project “Mothers at St. Pio’s House.” A gesture of solidarity with Ukraine, a cry for peace in the world, an act of material aid. Everyone does what they can and what they can to help the victims of war and express the universal desire for peace in the world. And the rest in the hands of God: “have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Greetings and see you soon!
Verbist Sisters. Sr. Tetiana.
