Feast of St. Faustina Kowalska

"Have confidence, My child. Do not lose heart in coming for pardon, for I am always ready to forgive you. As often as you beg for it, you glorify My mercy." 
(Jesus to souls  - Diary of St. Faustina, 1488)

Today marks the feast of an amazing woman, St. Fuatsina Kowalska, one of the greatest saints of modern times. Because of Jesus' desire to work through St. Faustina, we are given a deep treasure that catapults us into the Divine Mercy of God.

Many will recognize the image of the Divine Mercy of Jesus (at left), which Jesus Himself, revealed to St. Faustina. St. Faustina also left us a storehouse of knowledge of the Divine Mercy of God in her Diary. If you can, read it. It will change your life. (See here find out more about it).

Prayed on ordinary Rosary beads, there is also the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. And, look for the Feast of Divine Mercy, commonly known as Divine Mercy Sunday, celebrated the Sunday after Easter.

Not only do we remember a great woman of God today, but also the message she brings from Jesus, that we can never fathom the depths of God's infinite mercy and love.

St. Faustina, Pray for us!
