Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 371
March 2, 2023
A day full of alarms yesterday in Kyiv and Kyiv region. Central Ukraine red. Russia’s terrorist attacks intensified. There were more than 170 drone, missile attacks on Ukrainian territory in 24 hours. The following morning was calmer.
The Word… “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to the knocker they will open. When any of you sons asks for bread, is there one who will give him a stone? Or when he asks for a fish, will he give him a snake? If you then, though evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him. All things, therefore, what you would have men do to you, do ye also to them. For this is the essence of the Law and the Prophets.”
We live in a war, we do not live by war.
