More shelling of Ukraine’s border territories by the Russian occupier. Sumy region, Chernihiv region, Kharkiv region, Zaporizhzhya region, Kherson region…
God, grant us peace!!!

The Word… It’s also a war where you can give your life for the truth or be killed for the sake of the truth. “One must listen to God more than to men,” replied Peter, as well as the apostles. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you lost by hanging on a tree. God exalted Him to a place at His right hand as Ruler and Savior to ensure Israel’s repentance and forgiveness of sins. We bear witness to this very thing, and to the Holy Spirit, which God has given to those who obey Him.” When they heard this, they became enraged and wanted to kill them.” And again: “The poor man cried out and the Lord heard him.”
According to the Spirit of the Word, it is possible to live in war and not live by war, and even to rule over war and… be killed in war and live… “He who comes from on high rules over all things, and he who comes from on earth belongs to the earth and speaks in earthly terms.”

Come, Holy Spirit!!!

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

Sr. Faustina, a Verbist, was one of the first sisters to arrive in Ukraine in 1990. Now she is similarly beginning her new mission in Congo. Sister, may God bless and keep you.
Also, remember us and Ukraine, as you have done so far.
