Saint Sister Faustina
God’s Messenger of Divine Mercy
There is a time for Mercy and a time for Justice. Expelling Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden was an act of God’s Justice. But even then, as the Angel was blocking the way to the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden, and ushering our first parents out into the cold world, God was showing His Mercy to us through His promise of the Messiah, the Redeemer. God has always lived up to His Word. Throughout Salvation history, we have been beneficiaries of God’s Mercy. And very few times has He let loose His Justice. Sodom and Gomorrah was God’s Justice. Noah and the Ark was God’s Justice, but also mingled with God’s Mercy. The miracle of Moses and the Jews crossing the Red Sea was God’s Mercy, coupled with God’s Justice on the Pharaoh’s charioteers. When finally we are in the last days, with possibly the end of the world at hand, and we are about to face the Last Judgment, at that time the God of Mercy will give way to the God of Justice.
God has continued to give us the benefit of His Mercy down through the centuries. A powerful messenger of God’s Mercy, which parallels Saint Sr. Faustina and devotion to Divine Mercy, is St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and the promises of the Sacred Heart Devotion. 2 Through her, God manifested and made known His Mercy through His Sacred Heart in the seventeenth century. We come to the Twentieth Century, the Dawn of the last century of the Second Millennium, and we find that God has sent us Prophets and Visionaries once more, to warn His children.
Follow the life of Sister Faustina through Poland and Lithuania. The scenes in her life will bring bring you to Poland and Lithuania.
We visit the convents where Our Lord gave Sister Faustina the message of Divine Mercy (Vilnius), and where Our Lord appeared to her & commanded her to have His Image painted (Plock).
"It is superb in how it portrays Saint Faustina. The Scenes of the sites in her life brought Poland to the viewer."
