Prayer Request

Sister Maria Faustina Kowalska was born in Poland . When she
was twenty years old, she entered the Congregation of the Sisters
of Our Lady of Mercy. On the 22nd of February, 1931 , she had a vision of Jesus while she was in Plock , Poland . Jesus appeared to
her and said, "paint an image according to the pattern you see with the signature: JESUS I TRUST IN YOU. I promise that the soul
that will venerate this image will not perish. I also promise victory over (its) enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I Myself will defend it as My own glory" (Diary 47,48).

He asked her to remind the world of His unfathomable Divine Mercy and He taught her a very special devotion to the Divine Mercy
based on trust in Him.

Sister Faustina died on October 5, 1938 , at a convent in Krakow .
She was buried in the convent chapel beneath the image of the
Divine Mercy.

Sister Faustina was beatified on April 18, 1993 , her canonization
took place on April 30, 2000 the first Sunday after Easter, on
Divine Mercy Sunday.


She was honoured by becoming the first saint of this millennium, giving thus great emphasis to the Divine Mercy Devotion.

As one of the great events of the Jubilee 2000, the Holy Father
John Paul II, conducted the ceremony of the canonization of
St Faustina, before a crowd of around 200000 Divine Mercy
