After the liberation of the Mykolaiv district in Ukraine from the Russian army last week, residents began to return to their homes with the hope of saving at least some of their possessions.
Together with the parish priest, Society of Christ Father Oleksandr Repin, and other nuns, Benedictine Sister Faustina Kovalska went to the site of the church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Kyselivka, Ukraine, where they had ministered before the war.
“We, too, like the people of the village of Kyselivka, could not sit idly,” Kovalska, who is from Ukraine, told CNA.
On reaching the site, however, the Benedictine nun could not believe what she saw.
