First religious vows

You hear He says it: Become fire to Fire! Become fire in me, live only with love.


On October 30, 2022, in the chapel of our Motherhouse in Wrocław, I was able to respond to the voice of Jesus that I heard, who cried out to be a witness of His love in the world. After a two-year period of novitiate, I made my first vows of chastity, poverty and obedience infront of Provincial Sister Magdalena Zabłotna, which give me not so much a duty as a right to build a closer relationship with God, not so much to imitate as to remain with Jesus, but thus continuing to become more and more like Him. The vows I took – the evangelical counsels – made me His property to love everyone in Him; to make faith my wealth; to seek only God’s will, not mine.

A joyful day, a solemn day, because apart from the religious family, my relatives, family and friends were witnesses of the event. The solemn Holy Mass was presided over by Fr. Wiktor Trojnar and the homily was delivered by Fr. Kamil Cieliński, assuring that it will not be easy, but it will be beautiful;) The joy of the act of profession was extended by sharing a common table in the refectory, during a gala dinner and the joy of mutual presence.

With my prayer, I embrace all those who have supported and support me on the path of consecrated life which is only just beginning. The end of the novitiate is not the finish but the start,

step by step to be led by God to be the sister He wants me to be.
