Grzegorz Returns to his Venerable Matt Talbot Mission

We welcome back online, Grzegorz Jakielski, who experienced a major health issue, lengthy hospital stay, and is now recuperating at home (with internet access). We are grateful to all who prayed for him and continue to do so. Grzegorz writes both in English and Polish as well as speaks about Venerable Matt Talbot.

Below are some of his most recent posts in English on his Matt Talbot Facebook page

"Let us Pray
Venerable Matt Talbot, addict for Christ, look down upon all of us in our strugles with different addictions, in bondage, tortured of soul, heart and mind, blind to the saving light of Christ. Through your prayers, let us have our eyes oponed by grace to see salvation in the Holy One of God, who hung upon a Cross so that we may be set free. Father, pour out your light and blessing in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen."
