Saint Faustina Kowalska: Messenger of Mercy (ESS)

 

 

Saint Faustina Kowalska: Messenger of Mercy (Encounter the Saints Series)

When this saint was born in Poland on August 25, 1905, her parents named her Helen. In her short life on earth, she carried out the important mission of teaching the world about the mercy of Jesus. When she was twenty-five, she entered the convent of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, taking the name Sister Faustina. Her work was simple. She cooked, tended the convent garden, and answered the door. Her kindness, serenity, and spirit of recollection were remarkable. But few people knew the real depths of her spirituality. God blessed Sister Faustina with many extraordinary gifts, including visions, prophecy, and invisible stigmata. Sister Faustina kept a diary in which she wrote down everything that Jesus wanted the world to know about his mercy. Ages 9—12.
