Dear brothers and sisters in Christ!

Today is Saturday, June 11, 2022, and now Ukraine is dealing with the 108th day of the nice and bloody conflict that the Russian invaders are waging towards the Ukrainian individuals.

We thank God and the Ukrainian Armed Forces for coming this morning for seeing the daylight, for watching the rays of the solar.

The epicenter was reported in Luhansk, Severodonetsk, which is now a part of the Ukrainian military. In areas of battle and in occupied territories, persons are experiencing severe disgrace and distress, experiencing tragic moments that we could not know every little thing about, however what comes to thoughts. The Christian conscience will trigger the entire world to cry out for the want to rescue these individuals so as to cease this aggression and the conflict of injustice instantly.

Ukraine, bordering Russia – Sumy, Kharkiv and Chernihiv – was once more bombed by Russia with quite a lot of weapons. Intense preventing is additionally going down in the south of our homeland, particularly in the Kherson area, south of Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhia. We admire the braveness, bravery, and braveness of an eighteen- or nineteen-year-old boy who sacrificed his homeland for a bloodthirsty enemy.

Today, specifically, we wish to thank all those that prayed and supported Ukraine on this difficult time. It is mentioned that in want of you realize your good friend. And when our homeland faces the tragedy of conflict, we really feel deeply for each phrase of assist, each gesture of friendship from all the good individuals round the world who helped Ukraine to win and produce a day of victory. On evil.

Today, this Saturday, we’re additionally experiencing the ninth day of the decade of the missionary spirit. Tomorrow, in accordance to the Julian calendar, we’ll have fun the Feast of the Passover and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The Decade of Missionary Spirit is a time of particular prayer for the fruits of the Church in the preaching of the gospel of Christ to the individuals today. We see and have skilled that fashionable man is wounded past his capability to kind human relationships. Especially closures throughout epidemics and different components of up to date tradition typically make an individual extremely lonely. We can join with the entire world and there is no actual and full human relationship. And today we wait for the Holy Spirit to be the grasp of true and deep relationships between individuals. In addition, he is the custodian of that individual’s capability to talk, to kind unity with others.

Today, the gospel we hear and skim, which is our religious meals, tells us about a dialog between the resurrected Christ and the Apostle Peter, who denied his Master thrice throughout his tribulation. He. And right here the dwelling God requested the disciples, “Peter, do you like me?” It is fascinating to be aware that Peter could not have understood the query of the first grasp, as a result of when he answered, “Of course, Lord, you realize that I like you,” Peter understood the friendship. First, he speaks earlier than the passions that exist between bizarre mates. But Christ speaks of affection, the love that God loves for an individual. It is not about friendship, it is about sacrificing love that leads to sacrifice, however it offers life. And the third time, Christ requested, “Peter, do you like me? … Using the similar language that Peter used for Him. Christ went down to the stage of Peter’s capability to love to the level of his romantic relationship. He did this exactly to increase him later to the top of his capability to love as God. And he ended the dialog explicitly with the prophecy that Peter would lay down his life for Christ.

Today we desperately want the Lord of affection, the Holy Spirit. Because we frequently converse the similar language with out understanding one another. On the different hand, those that love perceive every little thing and perceive with out phrases. How difficult it is for Ukraine today to inform the world what it hurts, how difficult it is to clarify the ache that the Russian invaders inflicted on our homeland. Often individuals who don’t love Ukraine don’t perceive us.

That is why today I would like to thank all those that know the way to love, who converse the language of affection of the Holy Spirit, and that is how they really feel with out phrases, ache and struggling of Ukraine. .

Today we additionally pray for our souls. Today is a day of common remembrance of the lifeless, for Christian love is stronger than dying. Our Christian love lives in God, even those that have gone by way of eternity.

Today we pray for those that gave their lives for our nation: for our troopers, for those that gave their lives in order that we are able to reside today and luxuriate in normal prayer and normal reflection on the Word of God. Own.

God bless Ukraine. The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God’s love, descends upon us and teaches us to love. Teach humanity today to converse the language of affection. Then talking in tongues males will perceive each other and might be in a position to set up unity and integrity in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Your Christ.
