St Faustina First Class Relics on Tour in Archdiocese of New York April 2016

St. Maria Faustina Kowalska was born in Poland in 1905, the third of ten children.  In 1925 she joined the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy.  She is most known for bringing forward the image of the Divine Mercy of Jesus and the Divine Mercy Chaplet through revelations she received from Jesus and recorded in her diary, now published as a book called Divine Mercy in My Soul, at the request of Jesus and her confessors.  She died of tuberculosis in 1938 and was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2000.  On the same day he established Divine Mercy Sunday, to be the second Sunday of the Easter season, as a feast day associated with the message of Divine Mercy that Jesus gave to St. Faustina.
