BLESSED MARY ANGELA’S NOTES ON GARDENING

The second part of the exhibition dedicated to Blessed Mary Angela’s writings shows her notes on working in the garden. Among the Archival resources there are her letters, in which she discusses gardening issues, loose pages with notes and a small notebook entirely filled with gardening tips.
Here is an example of one of the tips:
To keep the bouquets for a long time in freshness, sprinkle them with fresh water and put in a dish with soapy water. The next day, sprinkle the bouquet again with fresh water. Put in clean water for a few minutes and then put it back in the soapy one. The last one is to be changed every 3 to 4 days.

Encounter with Blessed Mary Angela

On Sunday, March 10, once again we met to reflect on one of the chapters of the Memoirs of the Congregation. This time it was chapter V entitled: The Vocation of the Sisters of Saint Felix.

Although this chapter was scheduled for this meeting following its order, it should be emphasized that the theme and the invitations of this chapter were closely connected with the time of Lent.

Encounter with Blessed Mary Angela

On Sunday, February 10, we met again in our Museum and Archives reflecting upon the fourth chapter of the Memoirs of the Congregation.

The fourth chapter is entitled: The Vocation of Saint Francis.

Although we met in a small group, sharing in the community was very enriching. We have all seen the basis of our call to repair the Church of God through faithful living in accordance with our vocation and, above all, by giving witness to life.

Saint John Paul II’s Window in Krakow

We all know that this year we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the election of Karol Wojtyla to the Holy See. Last week, and especially the day of October 16, 2018, was filled with celebrations reminiscent of an event from forty years ago, and perhaps most of all, expressing our gratitude to God for the gift of this Great Polish Man.

On Tuesday evening, October 16, 2018, at 8:00 p.m., the Papal Window at 3 Franciszkanska Street in Krakow was ceremonially unveiled. In the restored Papal Window there is a mosaic depicting the Pope in white robes. At the top and bottom, there are flowers that refer to those that Our Lady in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska has on her dress.
