Connected with Krakow’s Tyniec Abbey since 2008, she is now a member of its lay Oblates community. She holds a Master’s degree in special education, with reference to resocialisation. Her professional life has been devoted to young people with social adjustment issues, and right up to now she has been helping those in the broadly understood situation of life crisis. She is happy to join The Benedict Option, since activity directed towards helping one’s fellow-being can be linked with prayer and faith “so that God be worshipped in everything” (Rule of St. Benedict, 57, 9). She is the happy mother and grandmother of four.
