Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 426
April 26, 2023
War on the frontline without change. More tension is emerging. There is increasing talk of a counterattack on the front, which may come from the Ukrainian side. We are waiting. We pray for peace, for a just peace.
We greet everyone from Starokostiantyniv, Khmelnytskyi region. The days of our Capuchin formation have begun. We live in war, but we do not live by war hence our convention and Capuchin formation.
The Word… Many events in the original, young church. “After the death of Stephen, a great persecution erupted in the Jerusalem Church.” “Saul was destroying the Church, entering homes, kidnapping men and women and throwing them into prison.” “Those who were scattered preached the word on the road.” “For it is My Father’s will that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him should have eternal life. And I will raise him up on the last day.”
There are no unbelievers in war. Hence we believe that those who die on the front lines will be resurrected, will receive eternal life by the power of Jesus’ resurrection.
Heroes do not die! Герої не вмирають!
We live in a war, we don’t live by war!
Children brought up in the spirit of love for God, homeland and traditions are the future of Ukraine’s true patriots. (photo)

Good people, one of those good Poles who have been hosting a mother and children from Vinnytsia in their home since the beginning of the war until now. They came in their car, brought the said mother and children so that they could meet their husband and father, who is at the front. Thank God for such people. Let us pray for our Benefactors. (photo)
