The Oblates do not leave their houses

Fr_V_ Podolan_OMIFrom Fr. Vitalij Podolan OMI, Superior of Oblate Delegation in Ukraine

“Over the past few days it has been necessary to hide many times from bombings, but the Oblates do not leave their houses and parishes, but stay in them, to accompany people, support them morally, spiritually and materially, and often allow them to shelter in the basements of our churches and houses.”

“In various circumstances of our everyday life, also during the celebration of the Eucharist, we hear sirens announcing possible bombing or flights of military planes, which is the cause of increased fear. The risk related to vigilance at their places of service is very high.”

“All the more, we express our sincere gratitude to everyone for every form of support, especially for intercession before the Lord. We believe that God can work a miracle and give us peace.”
