St. Faustina & the Divine Mercy

Yup it is another saint's feast day! Today (October 5) we remember St. Maria Faustina in a special way.

St. Faustina actually lived not so long ago. She was very close to Jesus and she recorded the conversations they had in her diary.
 

 
She was most famous for telling the world about the great love and mercy Jesus has for all of us. This picture was painted from St. Faustina's description of how she saw Jesus in her visions. The painting is called the Divine Mercy. Most Catholic churches have this picture somewhere in the church.


I have an idea Cloë, why not have the kids look for their picture of the Divine Mercy this Sunday when they are at Mass!

Good idea Tallulah. St. Faustina also introduced us to the Divine Mercy Chaplet, which is a sort of very short rosary.




If you get EWTN on your TV you can watch St. Faustina as she teaches her young friends Kristin, Enrique and others about the Divine Mercy Devotion and how to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet. It is on Fridays at 4:30 pm.



Or they can order the DVD Cloë.

Before we close, we want to say hi to the 3 young ladies we met on our walk this afternoon.

They were very nice and they really liked us right Cloë?! It was almost like having our own fans!

Bye for now - woof!

Cloë and Tallulah
