Letters from Br. Błażej: Night 431
May 1, 2023 – Monday
Tonight was a very uneventful night. A lot of alarms, and rocket attacks. Pavlograd, Dnipro region suffered. Explosions in Kyiv, some people spent the night in metro stations, just like at the beginning of the war.
Good news for us: the Gentiles accepted; they heard the Word.
“The apostles and brethren, residing in Judea, learned that also the Gentiles had received the word of God.”
God loves and cleanses everyone:
“I also heard a voice that spoke to me….. I answered: “Oh no, Lord, for I have never taken anything tainted or unclean into my mouth.” But the voice from heaven spoke up a second time: ‘Do not call unclean that which God has cleansed.’
“They glorified God and said, So also to the Gentiles God has granted the grace of conversion, that they may live.”
“I am the good shepherd and I know My sheep, and My sheep know Me.”
I invite you to listen to Psalm 23.
WE LIVE IN WAR, WE DO NOT LIVE BY WAR.
In Ukraine, the “Day of the Border Service Troops.”
One of our Capuchin brothers before the Order served in the Ukrainian army in this very formation. We wish him our best.
Despite the war, alarms, in the square, on the steps in front of the Capuchin church, evangelization is taking place.
Our Good Shepherd, Br. Joseph Chromy in the Holy Spirit proclaimed that God is love.
Donetsk region (province).
The Russian world in all its glory. Destroy, burn, kill; this is the Russian world.
God grants us a just peace.
