On the Feast of St. Faustina, I can’t but help but think of the two meaningful books I have co-authored that focus on this powerful saint and promote the important message of Divine Mercy! These books are Our Friend Faustina: Life Lessons in Divine Mercy and Divine Mercy for Moms: Sharing the Lesson of St. Faustina and are both sold on Amazon and I linked them for you!
Divine Mercy for Moms is a book for ALL moms (and spiritual moms as well)! It is an opportunity to encounter not only the powerful message of Divine Mercy but it brings to life the importance of this important vocation! Michele Faehnle and I share inspiring stories, our own life lessons, and an overview of not only Divine Mercy but the Works of Mercy. In the forward of the Book, Fr. Gaitley shares a powerful message about why mothers are so important in the plan of salvation, he writes:
Now is the time of mercy! Now is the time of great and extraordinary grace for the Church and the world…”But do you know what? What the world sees as unimportant is often the most important to the Lord. And how important are mothers? Well, I believe that in this time of mercy, God wants to use them to save the world! I believe he wants to use such hidden souls to complete his strategy of brining down mercy on humanity. How? Through their unseen merciful deeds, words, and prayers. So for instance, they help save the world by praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy while picking up the kids from school, by making acts of trust in Jesus in the midst of trials and crosses, and by taking up mundane work of mercy for children and husbands who may never fully realize their sacrifices.
-Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC
Fr. Gaitely goes on to share that even though St. Faustina was not a mother in a physical sense, she was a powerful spiritual mother whose prayers, and sacrifices gave birth to grace in souls. This book has gone on to be a Catholic Best Seller, Award Winning and we offer a ton of great resources on our ministry site- www.inspirethefaith.com.
The second book, Our Friend Faustina is a compilation book made up of other women who have experienced the powerful transformation through befriending this modern saint! St. Faustina wants to teach each one of us powerful lessons about the importance of Divine Mercy and living out a life of mercy to others. This book shares the powerful tales of eleven women who have been impacted by St. Faustina and forever changed!
The GREAT NEWS is that both of these books offer a free video series so that you can study them with friends and family! The videos are set up with you in mind so check them out at www.InspiretheFaith.com.
So I hope that take time out of your busy life to foster a deeper relationship with St. Faustina!
