Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 391
March 22, 2023
A hard day in Kyiv and all of Ukraine. Attacks, explosions. Explosions are heard in Kyiv, Khmelnytskyi. Probably anti-missile systems are working.
God, grant us a just peace.
The Word… “Come out to freedom!” May this Word and others be fulfilled in us and in Ukraine.
“Zion said: ‘The Lord has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me.’ Can a woman forget her babe, she who loves the son of her womb? And even if she should forget, I will not forget you!” Let us ask God not to forget Ukraine.
“I am the resurrection and the life, whoever believes in Me will not die forever.” Amen!
We live in a war, we do not live by war.
Meeting. We thank God for our friends and benefactors who, despite the war, are with us, visit us and support us with offerings for various projects. Today let us thank God for our benefactors and friends from the organization Kirche in Not. They visit our bishops, “Roman” and “Greek” dioceses and remember the Capuchin brothers.
Brothers, let us not cease to pray for our benefactors.
Name day—brothers’ encounter. This is another protest against war. How good and nice when brothers meet, stay together…
Thank God for each of us!!!
News from the brothers:
Starokostiantyniv (Br. Sergey Gubitsky):
I invite the brothers to help us load coal in the basement. 25 [metric] tons. For the heating season. Beautiful, hard coal. (photo)
