Faustina Kowalska (1905–1938) was not the most popular woman in her community. Some regarded her as lazy; others, delusional. But she knew the only opinion that mattered was God’s, and she pushed on to fulfill his desire that she spread the message of divine mercy to the world. 


Saint Faustina,
I am a people pleaser.
I’m uncomfortable
being the only person
in the room
who has a different view.
Show me
by your example
how to please
the only one who matters,
and become spiritually indifferent
to those who criticize me.


Share the truth God has put on your soul, even if it results in shocked looks from people you love and respect.

There are many times that the gift that you have is not appreciated by the world, but the best judge will reward it to you at the end of your life, because God's love is infinite and He sees everything that the world does not see.

Satan tempts us daily, but my Faith in Jesus is stronger than Satan. Jesus I Trust in You. Deliver me from my sins, protect me and my family from harmful words and actions who do not trust in You. Protect our world from those who follow those who follow Satan. All my daily works I offer up to You for those who are isolated from You. Bless our country and the whole world. Amen
