Feast of St. Faustina
October 5 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Joining the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in 1925, St. Faustina received revelations from Jesus Christ, including a call for a feast to be celebrated the Sunday after Easter – Divine Mercy Sunday.
And you, Faustina, a gift of God to our time, a gift from the land of Poland to the whole Church, obtain for us an awareness of the depth of Divine Mercy; help us to have a living experience of it and to bear witness to it among our brothers and sisters. May your message of light and hope spread throughout the world, spurring sinners to conversion, calming rivalries and hatred, and opening individuals and nations to the practice of brotherhood. Today, fixing our gaze with you on the Face of the Risen Christ, let us make our own your prayer of trusting abandonment and say with firm hope: “Jesus, I trust in You!”.
