Name day. Today our Brothers in the Province of Krakow celebrate their name day. We especially keep in prayer Br. Mark Miszczynski, our provincial minister. May God bless you. We thank you for your ministry.

The “scorched earth” syndrome continues by Russian terrorists. It makes no difference, a simple house, a skyscraper, a school, an Orthodox church—everything is ruined, that’s because it is on Ukrainian soil.
God, give us a just peace!

The Word… Practical advice from the Letter of St. Peter, the Apostle. “Most beloved: All of you, towards one another, clothe yourselves with humility, for God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Cast all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober! Be vigilant! Your adversary, the devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Strong in faith, oppose him.”
“We preach Christ crucified, who is the power and wisdom of God.”
I invite us to proclaim Christ together, as our life and vocation allows… Come, Holy Spirit.
God is love!

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

On April 21-23, our parish held another class of the School of Christian Life and Evangelization. We would like to thank the “Lubov Chrystova” community for their organization, hospitality and open hearts. (photo)

Organ music concert! We would like to thank Mr. Stanislav Kalinin from Kharkiv for the wonderful organ concert we listened to last night in our Capuchin church.
Music not only heals, it brings joy and pleasure. Music helps bring our ZSU soldiers up to speed. (photo)

Crimea is Ukraine. “Yellow Ribbon” activists are leading the fight in Crimea by hanging signs, small ribbons, thus proving that Crimea belongs to Ukraine and will be Ukrainian sooner or later. (photo)

They talk about us, or rather about Catholics in Dnipro.
