War night and morning, in the calm of war. We wait for alarms, rockets…
God, give us peace.

The Word… “Thus says the Lord God: ‘Behold, I will open your graves and bring you out of your graves, my people, and I will lead you into the land of Israel, and you shall know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you out of your graves, my people. I will give you my spirit to bring you to life, and I will lead you to your country, and you shall know that I, the Lord, have said this and will perform it,’ says the Lord God.”

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

“Bullet pierced a helmet and stopped in the skull. How doctors treat at the front.” An article in Ukrainian:

Kharkiv (from Ms. Tania):

Thank God, it’s quiet in Kharkiv, spring. Today Fr. Alexander, a native of Melitopol, working in Zaporizhzhya, was coming to us. Quite young, but already all gray. Chaplain. Right in the center of the fighting in Bakhmut. Beard–like yours, only black. He smiles, jokes… I am happy for him and that they are like this—brave chaplains. Fr. Shasha Karapetiwn. (photo)
