Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 374
February 5, 2023
Yesterday since lunch, the reality of war. Alarms, rockets, drones, innocent people die. God, give us a just peace!
The Word… “Go forth from your native land and from your father’s house to the land that I will show you”.
What does this mean for you…?
Come out, forsake what you have heard, what you have become by what you have heard in your family home: repent means accept this new Word…
… the Father’s voice: “This is my beloved Son, listen to Him.”
This is conversion to the Father. Hear the voice of the Father, you are my son, and listen to the Son, this is the beginning of conversion, the source of Christianity.
God the Father is love, the Father loves you. You are loved by the Father.
Convert to the Father.
We live in a war, we do not live by war.
