Mission in Gallardon

On April 26–28, Sr. Miriam and Sr. M. Tere­zja­na were on the mis­sion of mer­cy in Fran­ce whe­re in the dio­ce­se of Char­tres they met with vario­us com­mu­ni­ties. They proc­la­imed the mes­sa­ge of mer­cy in the reti­re­ment home for prie­sts and in the convent house of the Sisters of St. Paul. But the main goal of the sisters’ mis­sion was to meet with the “Fau­sti­num” gro­ups foun­ded at the Shri­ne of Divi­ne Mer­cy in Gal­lar­don. The gro­up of adults that was star­ted at the Shri­ne a few mon­ths ago takes part in the for­ma­tion pro­gram of our Asso­cia­tion. The new thing at the Shri­ne is the gro­up for chil­dren cal­led “Mini Fau­sti­num”, which meets to learn abo­ut the life and mis­sion of Sister Fau­sti­na.

The main event of the sisters’ mis­sion in Gal­lar­don was the cele­bra­tion of the Divi­ne Mer­cy Sun­day. The Sisters gave a talk on the signi­fi­can­ce of the Feast of Mer­cy in the life of the Church and of eve­ry human being, which was fol­lo­wed by the Holy Mass and vene­ra­tion of the relic of St. Fau­sti­na. The par­ti­ci­pants of the cere­mo­ny were deeply moved when they wor­shi­ped the Divi­ne Mer­cy and vene­ra­ted the relic of St. Fau­sti­na. After the Mass the­re was an Aga­pe feast in the House of Mer­cy after which all went for a pray­er at the Hour of Mer­cy. We thank God for this time of gra­ce and mer­cy in which the pari­shio­ners and pil­grims expe­rien­ced the spe­cial pre­sen­ce and inter­ces­sion of St. Fau­sti­na. We rejo­ice that at that time Jesus’ desi­re abo­ut which He told St. Fau­sti­na was also ful­fil­led: My dau­gh­ter, tell the who­le world abo­ut My incon­ce­iva­ble mer­cy. I desi­re that the Feast of Mer­cy be a refu­ge and shel­ter for all souls (Dia­ry, 699).
