Saint Faustina’s name day

February 15 was the religious name day of Sister Faustina. Her patron was St. Faustin – Italian martyr of the first centuries. The name Faustin (from the Latin faustus) means happiness, prosperity.

Today is also a liturgical memorial of Blessed Father Michal Sopocko – Sister Faustina’s confessor.

Let us thank the merciful God for the lives of these great apostles of Divine Mercy and ask them to support us in continuing their mission and to obtain for us the grace of trust and a heart filled with mercy. 

“During Holy Mass, I had a moment of knowledge concerning Father S., that great glory is being given to God through our mutual efforts. And even though we are far from each other, we are often together, because we are united by a common goal” (D. 1472).
