Learn The Story of The First Beatified Lay Nurse
Hanna Chrzanowska of Cracow, Poland is a Polish Nurse who organized a Parish Nursing Home Care for the chronically ill in “extremely degrading human dignity” circumstances. Over the years of 1957-75, she worked closely with Pope St. John Paul II. As her spiritual advisor, he helped her discover “the greatest of all secrets of her soul.”
I am inspired and strengthened by her story to persevere in my desire to be the most faithful Catholic woman possible. I strive to live the virtue of charity in providing a safe space of hospitality in all aspects of my life, especially my profession as a Faith Community Nurse.
I invite you to learn about Blessed Hanna as told on the National Association of Catholic Nurses website. May her story inspire you to new heights in your spiritual journey with the aid of the Holy Spirit.
Please pray for those who need healing through her Intercessory Prayer found on the website. May the gifts of the Holy Spirit profoundly call you to seek God’s Holy Will for you.
