Today the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of Saint Faustina, who brought us the message of Jesus' Divine Mercy. The kids and I did a little activity to learn about her, and again, she is another saint I want to know more about, and to read her diary.
I found some great printables from TheDivineMercy.org website. We read a brief life of St. Faustina for kids from the Little Book of Saints, volume 1. And then, I used printables from The Divine Mercy site to explain the vision of Jesus that St. Faustina had, as well as a little intro into the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the graces given if prayed, and finally, a picture to color as I prayed a chaplet with the kids.
I really love how simple it is to incorporate our faith into all we do. And, I really love praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
"I have found that the greatest power is hidden patience. I see that patience always leads to victory, although not immediately; but that victory will become manifest after many years. Patience is linked to meekness." ~ St. Faustina, from her diary, page 541 ~
