The War in Ukraine

In Haec LogoFr Marcin writes :

“It's terrible, yesterday morning I was awakened by explosions that made the windows tremble. There were 7 explosions in the morning.
It was an attack on the military airport here in Lutsk, the airport was fired on and the TV tower was blown up.
Today, sirens sound every few hours, alarming about the possibility of bombing. At night, we sleep in our clothes so that when the sirens wail, we quickly run away to the shelter.
We are organizing a shelter for people in the basement of the cathedral, we try to organize sleeping bags, pillows, blankets, quilts, jackets, it's cold there,
We are also buying medicine and long-term food for the shelter. Help is needed and a lot of it. You can also help financially,
I am asking for prayer - that I may have strength.
I'm scared. I don't want to leave, go (flee) to Poland for now. As long as I can do it, I don't want to leave the parish, as long as there are still people.”

We are pleased to report that our little Catholic Medical Missionary Society has emptied its coffers recently, sending money to Ukraine and elsewhere. More has been sent by members to Aid to the Church in Need which has been actively supporting Ukraine for 20 years. Do please consider giving to the CMMS, Aid to The Church in need, or, if you wish, we can tell you how to give directly to Fr Marcin.
