Małgorzata POTENT-AMBROZIEWICZ – The Image of a Hidden Life: Kazimiera Gruszczyńska’s Way to Holiness


Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

The article describes the profile of Mother Kazimiera Gruszczyńska, the foundress of the Franciscan Sisters of the Suffering Congregation. Inspired by Fr. Honorat Koźmiński, she chose the hidden life. Her radical attitude concerning the need to keep the activity of the congregation she founded secret resulted from her desire to imitate Christ by being obedient to the will of God. In that, she wanted to follow the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph. In her daily life Kazimiera Gruszczyńska fully confirmed her faithfulness to the vows she had made, thus becoming a paragon of humility. She believed that the value of her hidden life lay in its being a gift for the Church and for every human being. She devoted herself to serving the afflicted and the rejected, and she educated her wards in that spirit. Her work resulted in the erection of numerous churches, hospitals, and nursing homes.
