On February 13, 2018, the second group of the Sisters from the Przemysl Province participating in the retreat came to Krakow for a pilgrimage of thanksgiving. The entire day was filled with encounters with Mother Mary Angela, the Blessed Foundress of the Felician Sisters. The Sisters came for the thanksgiving pilgrimage on the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the Beatification of their Foundress.
The day began with the common experience of Transitus in the cell from which Mother Angela was called to the Father?s House. A special and cherished moment of the day was the Eucharist celebrated at the altar of Blessed Mary Angela?s relics in the church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Krakow.
As before, the retreat Father in his homily referred to the words spoken during the beatification ceremony in Rome by John Paul II. Among other things, he quoted:
Her (Mother Angela?s) greatest desire was to become a ?victim of love?. And she always understood love as a free gift of herself. ?Loving means giving. Giving everything that love asks for. Giving immediately, without regrets, with joy, and wanting even more to be asked of us. These are her own words in which she summed up the whole program of her life.
