Divine Preaching


I must confess I could not remember much from Sr Faustia’s talk at the Divine Mercy Shrine in Krakow, Poland. Earlier in the morning of 12 June 2018, we were totally wasted at the WieliczkaSalt Mine and after lunch, we were only thinking of Divine Sleep…

However, Sr Faustia continued to speak with love and conviction despite seeing many of us “nodding”. Throughout our brief encounter with her, her divine smile never left her and I could feel it reaching to the very depths of my being with an incredible joy that is definitely unearthly.

Sr Faustia attributed her amazing life to the Diary of St Faustina and I wasted no time in getting a copy from the bookstore and started reading it. I am still reading it but I am already inspired with the first few chapters, so I highly recommend it to everyone who wishes to grow in holiness and joy.

In our modern world of distractions and digital deluge, we really don’t need more eloquent speeches or articles – Sr Faustia showed me that holiness can transcend physical boundaries to reach the human heart and this was so aptly summarized by St Francis of Assisi about a thousand years ago: "Preach Jesus, and if necessary use words."

"And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit." Acts 13:52

"Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy." 1 Peter 1:8
