Yesterday, drones and artillery attacked Kryvyi Rih, Kharkiv and Donetsk regions. (photo) Later, Odessa, Nikopol.
God, grant us a just peace.

The Word… Today’s Feast, is the day of the Word: “Fear not, Mary, for you have found favor with God. Behold, you will conceive and bear a Son, whom you will name Jesus.”
“How will this happen, since I do not know my husband?”
The angel answered her: “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will cover you with a shadow.”
“Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord, let it be done to me according to your word.”
The word comes from God. Mary asks “How will it be done?” “The Holy Spirit,”… the Angel answers.
Mary, “Let it be done to me according to Your Word.”
This is a model for each of us!
Do not be afraid, God loves you…
The Holy Spirit will come upon you and everything that is impossible for you will become possible. Amen!

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

News from the brothers:

Kyiv (Br. Sergey Kippa):
Yesterday, we (Kyiv parish/convent) “moved” from Perov Boulevard to Resurrection Prospect.
Don’t get confused on Tuesday going to Kostya and Vitya’s name day.
What a nice name though!
It could have been called “Capuchin Avenue,” but they thought, ” they will not share with the Nazareth sisters.”

Lviv (Br. Zbigniew Sawchuk):
Summit meeting. Married couple Andrzej Czerny and his wife Olga expecting their 8th child. They are preaching retreats in Brukhovychi for the Neocatechumenal Way. I preach a parish retreat at the Lviv Cathedral.
Ora pro nobis. (photo)

Jesus lives!
