Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska was not born with a shining halo hovering over her head and a peaches and cream easy life. Neither is she some austere person from ages past. We certainly don’t need to dust off history pages to meet this modern day saint who was very much aware of the modern world. Saint Faustina has much to teach us today! She received apparitions from Jesus and was entrusted by God with the mammoth task of propagating the devotion to Divine Mercy and suffered much to carry out her mission. As the young nun grew in holiness, she possessed many mystical gifts. Saint Faustina is our sister in Christ and can greatly help us to navigate our own journey towards Heaven.
