At the empty tomb, but for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament came two women. One of them younger standing on her knees cried very loudly. Coming out of prayer, the older woman approached me, asking me to pray for her seriously injured grandson. The crying woman turned out to be a mother whose son had been wounded at the front. Let us pray for the severely wounded and other wounded and killed soldiers and their families.

In the premises of our Capuchin monastery the 7th “Mountain of the Prophet” seminar has already taken place. About 50 brothers and sisters gathered for prayer in unity. We thank God for everything. God’s blessings to all.
We were visited by angels i.e. volunteers, who took advantage of the hospitality of Br. Joseph, stayed overnight and went to the East to help. May God protect and bless you.
