The feast day of our brothers, George, Anton and Oleksandr is also our feast day. The brothers send their wishes. 100 years, Многая літа.
The birthday celebrants give their heartfelt thanks.

Last night was uneventful, especially in the eastern, southern and northern regions. Alarms, shelling… The war normal, unfortunately.
God, grant us peace!

The Word… We all want to be happy. The way to that happiness is one. Here it is: “Blessed are those who listen to the Lord.” That’s why Jesus gives us a warning: “Amen, amen, I say unto you, Ye seek Me, not because ye have seen signs, but because ye have eaten bread to the full. Contend not for that food which decays, but for that which endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you; for it is He whom God the Father has marked with His seal.”

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

Our monastery. We invite you to take a look.

Yesterday, within our monastery walls, another concert of organ music took place in the church. The organist from Kharkiv, Mr. Stanislav Kalinin, well known to our listeners, played.

Brother Wojciech Glowacki celebrates his name day. We remember Brother Wojtek and the retreats, the Word, the love of the Psalms. Brother Wojciech wrote a few words:

Thank you for the good word. For Ukraine and for you we pray every day.
