A lay person’s communion with Christ in Maria Szymanowska’s spiritual experience

Piotr Majchrzak

Abstract

My dissertation “ A lay person’s communion with Christ in Maria Szymanowska’s spiritual experience” is a thorough study of a lay person’s spirituality. The objective of the thesis is to present the way in which Szymanowska rachieved her communion with Christ as well as the fruit of the communion. The thesis consists of four chapters. The first chapter describes Maria Szymanowska’s life with its spiritual aspects. The chapter also includes the testimonies of people who used to know her. Their reports make valuable contribution into the research as they confirm Szymanowska’s authentic union with Christ. The second chapter shows the ways she implemented the virtue of faith and her trust in God. The arguments prove that Szymanowska’s spirituality was totally Christ-centered. The third chapter introduces the issue of her fulfilment of the communion with Christ in her sacramental life, in prayer and her bond with Our Lady. The teacher from Kalisz entrusted herself in the intercession of Saints listed at the end of the chapter. The last element shows her attitude to the Roman-Catholic Church which she loved and was devoted to. The fourth chapter presents the consequences of Szymanowska’s communion with Christ – her fruitful experience of suffering and her concern about people’s salvation. The chapter shows her ability to go through suffering in union with God and use it in her spiritual life. Maria Szymanowska can be seen as a teacher working at school, participating in the works of ministry groups or corresponding in spiritual matters, whose priority was salvation of every human being.
