Saint Faustina, Jesus chose you to remind us that our Savior loves and accepts us as we are. You used all your energy to carry out God’s plan for you. Your day-to-day life wasn’t always easy. You were sometimes misunderstood by those who failed to recognize the love of Jesus in your heart. Jesus called the kingdom of heaven a treasure and a pearl of great price. You found that kingdom and that pearl in the Lord himself.
Saint Faustina, you preached Jesus’s mercy with your life, with the Diary you wrote, and with the painting of Jesus that you had made. You never imagined all the good that Jesus would do through you. Please teach me to love and trust in our most merciful Jesus. Amen.
A Quote from Saint Faustina
“Act in such a way that all those who come in contact with you will go away joyful. Sow happiness about you because you have received much from God; give, then, generously to others. They should take leave of you with their hearts filled with joy.”
Saint Faustina Kowalska
