He knew that the nation's foundation was its morality, and the foundation of morality was a living faith, so he did not want to let religious life die in Poland. While confined in monasteries - in Zakroczym and in the Nowe Miasto nad Pilicą - he founded 26 consecrated life communities. Each of them was to support a specific social group of the Polish nation threatened by the partitioner's policy.
However, it was not just the political situation of that time that led to the creation of so many hidden life communities. Father Honorat's creation of various religious orders resulted from his deep closeness to God, from many hours spent in adoration, from constantly listening to Lord's voice and seeking answers to His calls. Immersed in God completely, he constantly sought Him and called Him "hidden God." And it was the mystery of God’s concealment that gave a form to the emerging communities, undetectable to society and the tsarist authorities.
In his writings, Bl. Honorat explained numerous spiritual motives forming the innovative idea of life without external signs of consecration. These were, among others:
- the timeless value of Jesus’ hidden life, whose divine origin and mission were unknown to anyone in Nazareth,
- Eucharist, in which the Divinity of Jesus has been forever hidden in the form of bread,
- the reality of the Church, which in its visible structures hides the invisible dimension of the Kingdom of God.
On such a multidimensional foundation - despite the changing external circumstances - the hidden religious life has continued for centuries, enriching the Church with the depth of hidden spirituality and qualities of apostolate.
