Role Description

Faustina: (Lead) born Helena Kowalska in 1905, into a large peasant family in Poland, had no potential for greatness – a poor girl, destined to be a housekeeper, with no education or prospects. Yet she longed for God, and despite the protests of her parents, and after a vision of Jesus telling her to head for Warsaw and become a nun, she secretly hopped on a train, and upon reaching the city knocked on the doors of convents until The Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy finally took a chance on this young girl, and let her in. As a nun she took the name Sister Maria Faustina, and spent the rest of her life doing menial work, as a cook and as a gardener.
In 1930, the visions started for the young nun, Sister Faustina Kowalska. Jesus appeared to her in a white garment, with rays of white and red light emanating from near his heart. He asked her to paint his image, with the message, “Jesus, I trust in You” across the bottom. That was the beginning of a very special mission, that took years to develop into a powerful devotion for the Church – the Divine Mercy.
Jesus continued to speak through Sister Faustina, with an urgent message for our times, and he gave her a special prayer, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, which spread throughout the world like wildfire. Faustina continued to keep a diary of her visions, until she died of tuberculosis in 1938. It was Pope John Paul II who declared the Sunday after Easter as Mercy Sunday, and in April 2000, Faustina Kowalska was declared the first saint of the 21st Century.
