Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 405
April 5, 2023
Alarms that I have not heard for a month now, yesterday at 12:41 p.m. in Vinnytsia. And so all over Ukraine. All Ukraine is red.
The Word… Holy Week, a powerful Word and request. “Every morning He stimulates my ear to listen like the disciples. The Lord God has opened my ear, and I have neither resisted nor retreated.”
Open my ear so that I listen to God, not to myself, and through obedience to the Word, I will not betray Jesus or run away from the cross.
“The Lord God supports me, that’s why I am insensitive to insults, that’s why I have made my face like a boulder, and I know that I will not be ashamed. Near is He who will acquit me.”
God is love!
We live in a war, we do not live by war.

America is opening up. They even write about us in English.
