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.

Bl. Mary Angela Truszkowska’s relics in Torun

On Tuesday, October 16, 2018, exactly on the 40th Anniversary of the election of Karol Wojtyła to the Holy See, many Felician Sisters participated in the ceremony of introducing the relics of Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska to the Shrine of Our Lady, the Star of the New Evangelization and Saint John Paul II in Torun.

Below is a link to the photo gallery from the ceremony and also to the Information Service on the TRWAM Television.

Benefactors of the Servants of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

On the day of the liturgical commemoration of Blessed Honorat Kozminski, October 13, 2018, our Museum and Archives were visited by a group of benefactors who have helped the Sisters Servants of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the renovations of the dormitory for girls in Krakow. Due to the fact that it would be difficult to visit the Museum if the entire group (over 80 people) came together, that’s why one part went to visit Kraków, and the second – the larger one – came to the Museum and Archives of Blessed Maria Angela.

All Saints Parish from Pszczyna visits Blessed Mary Angela

Today, October 13, 2018, the liturgical commemoration of Bl. Honorat Koźminski, the spiritual director of the Felician Sisters Congregation, Fr. Damian Gatnar, the Pastor of All Saints Church from Pszczyna, arrived to Krakow together with a group of his parishioners and sister Maria Ezechiela Barszczak. Their first steps were made to the Museum and Archives of Blessed Maria Angela to learn about her life and spirituality.

All participants of the pilgrimage, from the youngest to the oldest, listened attentively to the story about Mother Angela's life, about the work of the Felician Sisters and about the main aspects of the Felician spirituality bestowed on us by our Blessed Foundress.
