Encounter with Blessed Mary Angela

On February 11, 2018, the next meeting with the Blessed Mary Angela took place in the Museum and Archives. On that day falls the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes and although this year it was Sunday, it was, like every other year, celebrated as a Day of the Sick.

On this Marian day, the Sisters received excerpts from the writings of Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska and Blessed Father Honorat Kozminski, showing the love for Mary, especially for Her Immaculate Heart.

One of the texts proposed for reflection was a excerpt from Mary Angela?s letter to Father Honorat from 1861:

Maybe now I am able more overcome myself, for I entrusted myself to the protection of the Blessed Mother. I asked Her to offer me to the Holy Trinity and to watch over me on every step. You know, Father, about my special devotion to the Heart of Mary. Sometimes, when I pray in this way, I experience some kind of astonishment, so that although I do not feel it, I think that I must love the Blessed Virgin. Today, when I prayed the chaplet to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I felt a strong desire that this devotion would be spread at least in our Congregation …

The proposed texts gave the opportunity to talk about the traditions and customs relating to the Immaculate Heart of Mary preserved and practiced in the Congregation.

How enriching is the heritage of our Congregation. Thanks be to God for that!
