10,000 Booklets with Bible Verses for Ukraine
The Society of Saint Paul the Apostle, which has both a male and a female branch, is especially involved in proclaiming the Good News via the media. Among their activities, they publish books and journals and other audiovisual media, and their apostolate also involves work on the radio, on TV and online.
The Paulists are active in Ukraine, and during this time of war, they have realized how great the need is for not only material help, but spiritual support as well. They have compiled a small book, entitled The Bible – Words to strengthen Souls. It contains short Bible quotations, universally valid and accessible to everyone—not only believing Catholics or Christians of other denominations, but also to people without a faith who are perhaps searching for spiritual meaning. At a time when people are facing death, destruction and unbearable suffering, the question of meaning and God‘s presence has been awakened in many who had previously not given those questions much thought.
Thanks to our generous benefactors, we were able to donate $7,400 so that 10,000 copies of this book could be printed.
Father Mariusz Krawiec wrote to thank us: “The book has been printed and given out to the refugees and to the handful of people who have stayed on in the bombed-out towns and cities in East Ukraine. We believe that God will give consolation and hope through his Word and help people to overcome the tragedy of war.”
“We wish you all the best and we remember all our benefactors in our prayers.”
