Hanna Chrzanowska, a 20th-century Polish nurse and laywoman who will be beatified in Krakow Saturday, is a model of how to give of oneself for the good of others, said a priest involved with her canonization cause.
"The laity know well the reality of everyday life," Fr. Pawel Galuszka said. "Hanna, as a nurse, knew in person and from experience the problems of the sick, alone, abandoned and disabled."
A Polish priest responsible for the pastoral section of the beatification cause of Hanna Chrzanowska, Galuszka told CNA via email that "in today's culture the logic of the market prevails... In every aspect of life we tend to calculate profit or utility."
Chrzanowska, on the other hand, "teaches us how important it is to make a sincere gift of oneself, even sacrifice, for the good of the other. This is, and will be, the very legacy of Blessed Hanna Chrzanowska."
