On October 5, 1938, a young religious by the name Sister Faustina (Helen Kowalska) of the Congregation of Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Cracow, Poland, came from a very poor family that had struggled hard on their little farm during the terrible years of WWI. Sister had had only three years of very simple education. Hers were the humblest of tasks in the convent, usually in the kitchen or the vegetable garden, or as a porter. On February 22, 1931, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, bringing with Him a wonderful message of Mercy for all mankind. Saint Faustina tells us in her diary under this date: "In the evening, when I was in my cell, I became aware of the Lord Jesus clothed in a white garment. One hand was raised in blessing, In her diary Faustina predictthe other was touching the garment at the breast. From the opening ed that her work would be of the garment at the breast there came forth two large rays, one suppressed for some time, red and the other pale. In silence I gazed intently at the Lord; then accepted again. Two my soul was overwhelmed with fear, but also with great joy. After a while Jesus said to me, 'paint an image according to the pattern decades after her death the you see, with the inscription: Jesus, I trust in You.'" Divine Mercy devotion was banned by the Vatican, but Some time later, Our Lord again spoke to her: was approved again in 1978 and she was declared the "The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous; first saint of the 21st century in April 2000. The Dithe red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These vine Mercy devotion is now followed by over 100 two rays issued forth from the depths of My most tender Mercy at that time when My agonizing Heart was opened by a lance on the million Catholics. Cross....Fortunate is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him."
