114th Birth Anniversary of Helen Kowalska-St.Faustina

Thank You, O God, for all the gra­ces
Which unce­asin­gly You lavish upon me,
Gra­ces which enli­gh­ten me with the bril­lian­ce of the sun,
For by them You show me the sure way.

Thank You, O Lord, for cre­ating me,
For cal­ling me into being from nothin­gness,
For imprin­ting Your divi­ni­ty on my soul,
The work of she­er mer­ci­ful love.

Thank You, O God, for Holy Bap­tism
Which engra­fted me into Your fami­ly,
A gift gre­at bey­ond all tho­ught or expres­sion
Which trans­forms my soul.

Thank You, O Holy Tri­ni­ty, for the vast­ness of the gra­ces
Which You have lavi­shed on me unce­asin­gly thro­ugh life.
My gra­ti­tu­de will inten­si­fy as the eter­nal dawn rises,
When, for the first time, I sing to Your glo­ry”.

(“Dia­ry” 1286)
