YES, JESUS IS REAL! - FLASH MEMOIR BY ROSA

BACKGROUND

I will begin my memoir by discussing the series of events that led up to my private revelations of the risen Christ Jesus, The Son of Man. on September 29 and October 6, 2018. I believe it was the Virgin Mary, Co-Redemptrix that led me to her beloved son Jesus Christ.

I feel indeed very blessed with the Graces (private revelations) I have received from God as they were the catalyst for my own "Enlightenment" and "Reversion". 

I have to admit, I was in a quandary about sharing these Graces with others, and if I was to do so, I wondered how I would go about this. After all, Jesus did not ask me to share our encounters, or so I thought. Yet, my heart, mind and soul have been restless, ever since I have had these encounters. Not a day goes by that Jesus is not in my thoughts and in my heart - I feel as though I am in a permanent state of awe and perpetual adoration.

I can sense the incessant prompting of the Holy Spirit, continuously stirring within the very depths of my soul, engaging and emboldening me to assist Him in His mission to Save Souls!

“You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is:* You shall love your neighbour as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-40)
 
"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

I am giving you three ways of exercising mercy toward your neighbour: the first - by deed, the second - by word, the third - by prayer. In these three degrees is contained the fullness of mercy, and it is an unquestionable proof of love for Me. By this means a soul glorifies and pays reverence to My mercy. Yes, the first Sunday after Easter is the Feast of Mercy, but there must also be acts of mercy, and I demand the worship of My mercy through the solemn celebration of the Feast and through the veneration of the image which is painted. By means of this image I shall grant many graces to souls. It is to be a reminder of the demands of My mercy, because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works. (Diary 742)

Tell sinners that no one shall escape My Hand; if they run away from My Merciful Heart, they will fall into My Just Hands. Tell sinners that I am always waiting for them, that I listen intently to the beating of their heart ... when will it beat for Me? Write, that I am speaking to them through their remorse of conscience, through their failures and sufferings, through thunderstorms, through the voice of the Church. And if they bring all My graces to naught, I begin to be angry with them, leaving them alone and giving them what they want. (Diary, 1728)

Needless to say, this experience touched my heart, mind and soul in such a profound way that is beyond what words can explain.  I consider myself to be a very private person and the thought of bearing my soul to complete strangers was daunting to say the least. However, as the old saying goes, "love conquers all". I have truly come to know how intense the love the Lord Jesus has for me (and each and every single one of us). The way He pursued (pursues) me, it was (is) like I was (am) His only creature and the rest of the world just fell (falls) away. He knew (knows) everything about me (and you) – ever so intimately, more than you can ever imagine!

To be completely frank, initially, I felt rather jealous and protective, in that I did not want to share My Beloved with anyone, as I wanted Him all to myself, all the more now that I met Him face to face! I the creature, fell deeply in love with my Creator, my God and my Abba! However, He is God and if you think about the fact that He created the whole universe and everything and everyone it, you realize there is more than enough of Him and His perfect, unfathomable love to go around the world!

His heart’s desire is that we all pursue and love Him in return – He wants to be our soulmate. Indeed and rightly so, this is His first commandment. I suppose this is yet another way I find myself  sharing in His likeness which is not surprising to me at all considering we are truly made in His image and likeness, in that He does not want us to share our deepest affections with anyone or anything else.

 “… I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God… Exodus 20:2-17 

A Cradle Catholic

I will now proceed with my memoir by providing a brief background about my faith. Following this, I will tell you how I came to receive this unimaginable, extraordinary grace from our Lord Jesus Christ.

I am a cradle catholic and come from catholic parents, grandparents and great grandparents etc.  I went to a catholic elementary school and high school.  I possess two university degrees. While I received all the sacraments, my church attendance was spotty. My God parents were devout Catholics and were very involved within their parish. I am sure they always kept me in their prayers and that they are praying for me now in heaven.  I can recall that the various teachers (many of whom were nuns) that taught me in my elementary and high school years were a great source of encouragement and comfort to me. Music was also a source of comfort and joy to me. Music was in fact my most favourite subject and I took part in the school choir. I can still remember the lyrics to many of the Catholic hymns I learned as a child. I could truly feel God's presence while listening to and/or singing hymns and still do.

As famous musician and composer, Johannes Sebastian Bach once said:

“Where there is devotional music, God is always at hand with His gracious presence.”

“Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.”

I went through periods of time where I attended mass regularly and other times where I didn't. Throughout my childhood, my family did not attend mass regularly.  Normally, we only went to church on special occasions such as Christmas and Easter. However, I can recall my maternal grandfather walking to mass every Sunday as he walked past our house and then stopped by for a visit after mass.  

Ever since I was a child, I believe that I have always been blessed with the grace of faith in God. I maintained a relationship with Him, through conversation and prayer which gave me great consolation and hope during my earliest trials. Although I had doubts about some of the Church’s teachings, particularly where Jesus Christ was concerned, I was always able to see God in nature. I loved and was fascinated (and still am) by all His "living" creations. I had an innate sense of God and I saw His presence everywhere in the living nature all around us. It was as though I instinctively knew that the trees, flowers, animals, people etc were all created and loved by God.  I would often spend my spare time in the summer watching insects, animals and plants as their beauty and unique behaviours captivated me and still do. I grew up with animals and we had a huge garden which I enjoyed immensely.

My greatest fascination was watching seeds grow into plants and newborn animals grow into adults. I was equally passionate about children and knew that I had to have my own family one day so I could experience bringing new life into the world and motherhood - This was most certainly my vocation. My own body and its functions fascinated me and still do - I find it amazing that we can walk and talk etc without being plugged into a power source like an electrical outlet! While I did not have a daily prayer life at that time, I prayed and talked to God regularly. I knew He was listening and would answer my prayers if it was His will and on His time.  I was ever so grateful for everything He gave me. Despite that I did not fully understand my faith back then, there existed an element of trust. After all, He was God my Creator and I new He loved me and would take care of me in good times and in bad.

Regardless of my very limited knowledge of the catechism,  I maintained this strong faith in God, although I did not really comprehend Jesus Christ nor The Holy Spirit for that matter. The concept of  "The Holy Trinity" was most baffling to me. At one point I even wondered, why would a loving God allow His son (if indeed Jesus was His son) to be tortured and sacrificed on a cross in such a cruel and humiliating way? This sounded incomprehensible to me and rather "cultic" so I avoided thinking about it all together. This was very easy for me to do, since I could not bear the thought of such horrible suffering existing in our world anyway. Like most of us, I wanted to avoid thinking about suffering, as that was too painful.

I was also aware that Jesus was considered to be a prophet and not the son of God by some other religions. Therefore, I thought, perhaps that was a possibility and the bible was wrong. Despite these uncertainties, I was certain that God in Heaven existed and that if I was a good person and led a good life, I would be with Him for all eternity when I died. That was good enough for me.

As I went through my growing pains, I came to accept that suffering was a part of living here on earth and that it was only temporary as there would be no suffering in heaven, only joy and peace.  Even as a child, I always had a sense that there was something not quite right about this world. At times I  thought to myself, the things this world has to offer are such a waste of time considering they serve no purpose after death. I had the early wisdom of knowing that striving for and accomplishing earthly possessions and goals were not going to be satisfying as my soul thirsted for more.  I suppose that at times, my early wisdom resembled that of Saint Franciso Marto , one of the three Fatima children. 

 When asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, Francisco answered,

"I don't want to be anything. I want to die and go to heaven."

 It was as though my young soul knew I didn't really belong here as this was not my real home. As Christians we are gravely aware that this world is oftentimes hostile as Jesus himself attested:

"If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for my name's sake: because they know not him who sent me.  If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.  He that hateth me, hateth my Father also. If had not done among them the works that no other man hath done, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. But that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law: They hated me without cause." (John 15:18-25)

Once I became an adult and had my own family, I found myself occupied with raising children etc. I truly had no idea that not going to church or working on Sunday was a mortal sin. In fact, I did not even know what a mortal sin was. I was also one of those Catholics that did not really believe in Jesus' real presence in the Eucharist.  Rather, I tended to believe the bread and the wine are symbolic of Jesus’ body and blood. Considering, that I did not really know who Jesus was,  I could not truly appreciate what the Eucharist truly was either.

Suffering Has A Purpose - It promotes spiritual growth and a realization of one's total dependence on God.

As time went on, I came to a point in my adult life where I encountered a very serious "crisis" and came to experience the most profound "suffering and pain" for the first time in my life, where I found myself truly alone with God for the first time in my life.  After much prayer and reflection, I made the decision not to share the details of my personal trials and tribulations concerning this "crisis" as I desire that Jesus Christ and His message of Mercy be my sole focus. Suffice it to say, that God took this opportunity to draw me closer to His son Jesus so I can get to know and fall in love with Him,  the God Man, My Abba - the Hypostatic Union and the road to our Salvation.

"God whispers to us in our pleasures.
Speaks in our conscience,
but shouts to us in our pains.
It is His megaphone
to rouse a deaf world."
- C.S. Lewis

Our personal trials of life give us an opportunity and often drive us to question our relationship with God. It is during these times that we face suffering or a trial of some sort that our reaction is "Why me?" "What did I do to deserve this?" or, "If God is so loving and merciful, why would He let this happen?" As we all know, there are many types of suffering - poor health, death of someone we love, abusive relationships, addictions, etc.  The reality is, this list is endless. Regardless of the problem or cause, pain is pain and it is essential that we ask ourselves, "what is God trying to teach me through this cross?" We face adversity in all walks of life.

Jesus spoke these words to Saint Faustina:

 "My daughter, suffering will be a sign to you that I am with you." (Diary, 669)

"My daughter, do not be afraid of sufferings; I am with you." (Diary, 151)

"My daughter, meditate frequently on the sufferings which I have undergone for your sake, and then nothing of what you suffer for Me will seem great to you. You please me most when you meditate on My Sorrowful Passion. Join your little sufferings to My Sorrowful Passion, so that they may have infinite value before My Majesty." (Diary, 1512)

"There is more merit to one hour of meditation on My sorrowful Passion than there is to a whole year of flagellation that draws blood; the contemplation of My painful wounds is of great profit to you, and it brings me great joy" (Diary, 369).

 "Remember My Passion, and if you do not believe My words, at least believe My wounds." (Diary, 379)

"If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross every day and follow me." (Lk 9:23 )

Regarding trials, Saint Faustina wrote:

 "Strangely, God sometimes allows them, but always in order to manifest or develop virtue in our soul. That is the reason for trials." (Diary, 166).

Saint Paul also wrote that suffering has a purpose:

"Yes, the troubles which are soon over, though they weigh little, train us for the carrying of a weight of eternal glory which is out of all proportion to them. And so we have no eyes for things that are visible, but only for things that are invisible; for visible things last only for a time, and the invisible things are eternal." (2 Cor 4:17 -18)

Saint Peter wrote:

"My dear people, you must not think it unaccountable that you should be tested by fire. There is nothing extraordinary in what has happened to you. If you can have some share in the sufferings of Christ, be glad, because you will enjoy a much greater gladness when his glory is revealed." (1 Peter 4:12-13)

In a vision, Saint Faustina tells us about the horrifying details of the suffering Jesus endured for the sake of all humanity:

"Today, during the Passion Service, I saw Jesus being tortured and crowned with thorns and holding a reed in His hand. Jesus was silent as the soldiers were bustling about, vying with each other in torturing Him. Jesus said nothing, but just looked at me, and in that gaze I felt His pain, so terrible that we have not the faintest idea of how much He suffered for us before He was crucified. My soul was filled with pain and longing; in my soul, I felt great hatred for sin, and even the smallest infidelity on my part seemed to me like a huge mountain for which I must expiate by mortification and penance. When I see Jesus tormented, my heart is torn to pieces, and I think: what will become of sinners if they do not take advantage of the Passion of Jesus? In His Passion, I see a whole sea of mercy" (Diary, 948).

When we offer our sufferings and crosses back to Jesus, we live the words of Saint Paul:

"I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me" (Gal 2:19 -20).

"For if we have died with Him, we will also live with Him." (2 Tim 2:11 ).

It is important to keep in mind that while holy scripture is filled with accounts of healings, our personal healing will take place, only if it is compatible with God's will. For those for whom suffering is part of His plan, we should reflect on Jesus' words to Saint Faustina,

"I thirst, I thirst for the salvation of souls. Help Me, My daughter, to save souls. Join your sufferings to My Passion and offer them to the Heavenly Father for sinners." (Diary, 1032)

In our sufferings, we should take on the attitude of Jesus when He told Saint Faustina:

"When I was dying on the cross, I was not thinking about Myself, but about poor sinners, and I prayed for them to My Father. I want your last moments to be completely similar to Mine on the cross. There is but one price at which souls are bought, and that is suffering united to My suffering on the cross. Pure love understands these words; carnal love will never understand them." (Diary, 324)

Saint Paul wrote these words:

"I am now rejoicing in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am completing what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church." (Col 1:24).

While our spirit may be strong, the flesh is weak and at times we grow weary and get discouraged. We often ask, "What is the purpose?" "When will it be over?" or, "Why me?" however, we must maintain our focus on Jesus and run the good race.

In a vision contrasting worldly people versus those who accept and carry their cross for Jesus on earth, Sister Faustina wrote:

"One day, I saw two roads. One was broad, covered with sand and flowers, full of joy, music and all sorts of pleasures. People walked along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They reached the end without realizing it. At the end of the road, there was a horrible precipice; that is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And their number was so great it was impossible to count them. And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it was narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks and the people who walked along it had tears in their eyes, and all kinds of sufferings befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts of happiness, and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant, they forgot all their sufferings." (Diary, 153)

When we become weary from the battles of everyday life, we should reflect on Jesus' Passion and the rewards to come to those who are faithful. Saint Faustina expresses this well in these words:

"There is a series of graces which God pours into the soul after these trials by fire. The soul enjoys intimate union with God. It has many visions, both corporal and intellectual. It hears many supernatural words, and sometimes distinct orders. But despite these graces, it is not self-sufficient. In fact it is even less so as a result of God's graces, because it is now open to many dangers and can easily fall prey to illusions. It ought to ask God for a spiritual director; but not only must it pray for one, it must also make every effort to find a leader who is an expert in these things, just as a military leader must know the ways along which he will lead [his followers] into battle. A soul that is united with God must be prepared for great and hard-fought battles." (Diary, 121)

The Holy Bible

It was at this time in my life that I felt the deep yearning to open the bible again and learn more about Jesus, the man who suffered and died on the cross, a subject I preferred to avoid in the past. As I perused through the New Testament, finding the passages that were familiar to me I was able to find comfort in the words of Jesus. These very profound words gave me the courage and strength I so desperately needed.  The presence of God in His Word is undeniable! 

Our Lady and The Rosary

One evening, I suddenly remembered that I had a pamphlet I had stored in my nightstand for years (can’t remember when or where I got it),  entitled “How to Pray the Rosary (including the mysteries with pictures) and the 10 Promises of Mary.” I had always had intentions of praying the rosary at some point in my life (when I am not so busy and have the time I thought) because I felt drawn to it, although I did not really know why at that time. I retrieved the pamphlet and prayed the rosary.

The last prayer  "Hail Holy Queen"  provoked much reflection. This prayer suddenly jarred my memory - we are "poor banished children of Eve" and we are in "a valley of tears" and "exile"! As I reflected on the Mysteries, particularly the Sorrowful Mysteries, I truly connected to Jesus, immersing myself in His Passion for the first time in my life.  It was as though I was there with Him in the Garden of Gethsemane and on Calvary and could comprehend the injustice and suffering He experienced as much as was humanly possible. I knew that Jesus truly understood my own misery, and in time I realized that He was to become my only true consolation. The promises of Mother Mary were immensely comforting and reassuring so from that point on I started praying the rosary daily.

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary pray for us so that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

"Learn from this that no one will understand a soul entirely –that is beyond human ability.  Therefore, I have remained on earth to comfort your aching heart and to fortify your soul, so that you will not falter on the way.  You say that a dense darkness is obscuring your mind.  But why, at such times do you not come to Me, the light who can in an instant pour into your soul more understanding about holiness than can be found in any books?" (Diary 1488)

Saint Michael The Archangel

During this time, Saint Michael came to my awareness - I believe the Virgin Mary, Queen of Angels  sent him to me.  I had absolutely no idea who he was other than he was a saint and his name was Michael.  I felt inspired to learn more about him and after doing some research I came to know that he was St. Michael the Archangel who had defeated Satan in the great battle in Heaven. I was deeply inspired by this newly acquired knowledge of him. This inspired me to purchase and venerate two statues of St. Michael. I also started praying the St. Michael prayer and asking for his assistance as well. I was blessed with several private revelations of St. Michael at that time. While I did not see him, I felt his very strong undeniable presence, as well as that of Satan and their ongoing battle.

I suddenly became aware that we are at war - a spiritual battle for souls. From this I deduced that if St. Michael and Satan exists, then so does the Virgin Mary and her son Jesus Christ, just like it says in the bible. The whole story of Adam and Eve and the fall of one third of the angels and mankind was not a fairytale to me after all - What an enlightenment this was for me!

They'll Know We Are Christians ( "We Remember" CD - Blest & Broken)

During this time several other sudden inspirations came to me which I eventually realized were promptings from the Holy Spirit. The first inspiration that came to me was to search for and purchase the song "They’ll Know We Are Christians,"  one of my most favourite hymns as a child.  I managed to find a beautiful rendition of this song by a group called "Blest & Broken" online.  I went on to purchase Their CD entitled "We Remember" which contained this song as well as several other beautiful traditional Catholic hymns that I remembered and loved in childhood.  This song cd also became a tremendous source of comfort to me as well.

With this CD purchase, I also received a free “Divine Mercy Chaplet in Song” CD from "Blest & Broken."  However, I must confess, at that particular point in time, I did not know what Divine Mercy Sunday (nor the Divine Mercy Chaplet) was as my church attendance was rather spotty. A family member came home from church one Sunday and asked me “Do you know what day it is today?” I replied: “No, what?” I was told it was “Divine Mercy Sunday” and was provided a brief explanation.

Once again, I felt this sudden inspiration come over me. I remembered I had a “Divine Mercy Chaplet in Song" CD (the freebee that came with the other CD I had purchased) that still remained in its wrapper, unopened on my desk for many months. I went to get it, opened and listened to it for the first time. I thought it was the most beautiful prayer I had ever heard! I found it interesting and not just a coincidence to learn that the music group “Blest & Broken“ was made up of 7 (out of 11 children) American "Polish" siblings. Both of these music CD's gave me immense joy and consolation during the tribulations I was going through.

 

They'll Know We Are Christians - Blest & Broken
 

They'll Know We Are Christians By Our Love Lyrics

We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord;
We are one in the Spirit, we are one in the Lord;
And we pray that all unity will one day be restored.

Chorus: And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love,
yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love.

We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand;
We will walk with each other, we will walk hand in hand;
And together we'll spread the news that God is in our land.

We Will work with each other, we will work side by side;
We will work with each other, we will work side by side;
And we'll guard each man's dignity and save each man's pride.

All praise to the Father, from whom all things come;
And all praise to Christ Jesus, His only Son.
And all praise to the Spirit who makes us one.

If there is one song that defines Christianity, it is definitely this one. We are are One family in Jesus Christ accomplished via the Hypostatic Union - The Mystery of The Holy Trinity. The themes of Love and Mercy resonate throughout the song. The song makes it clear that God's greatest attributes are LOVE and MERCY and that we are all ONE FAMILY  WITH THE HOLY TRINITY - GOD THE FATHER, THE SON , and HOLY SPIRIT by THE HOLY WORD.

John 13:34-35; 1 John 4:7-12; Romans 13:8; Galatians 5:13; Ephesians 4:2; Philippians 2:1-15;

Divine Mercy In My Soul - Diary by Saint Maria Faustyna Helena Kowalska
The Chaplet of Divine Mercy - The Divine Mercy Image

Immediately after listening to "The Divine Mercy Chaplet " CD, I  felt another sudden inspiration come over me to research and learn about St. Maria Faustina Kowalska.

As I started researching St. Faustina and her Diary, I was absolutely fascinated and overjoyed to learn  about The Divine Mercy Image - There actually exists a painting of Jesus that He himself had requested! I couldn't believe my eyes. It was like I found a Pot of Gold! It was the Hyla image that I found first and wow I thought - that is what Jesus looks like!

I purchased and read her Diary “Divine Mercy In My Soul“.  I also researched and learned about The Divine Mercy Image. I purchased an 8” x 10” Divine Mercy Image and started venerating it and praying The Divine Mercy Chaplet  daily at the 3:00 o'clock hour. As I read the diary, I came to know Jesus ever so intimately, more than I ever imagined possible. I felt that Jesus was not only speaking with St. Faustina, He was speaking to Me (and to all of His children). I often felt like I was there with Him as He was with her. The Holy Spirit was once again at work in me -  the enlightenment that filled my soul is beyond anything I can explain!

Eucharistic Miracle - The Holy Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ - Private Revelation

In Christianity, a Eucharistic miracle is any miracle involving the Eucharist.

Following these inspirations of the Holy Spirit and much prayer and reflection, I was blessed with my first private revelation of Jesus Christ via The Communion Pyx. One night, I was in bed thinking (and praying) about my problems and Jesus and His passion - The communion pyx (with consecrated host inside) was on the dresser, in front of the wall across the room as I had not yet consumed it. ( In case you are wondering, what a consecrated host in a pyx was doing on the dresser? - At my request, a household family member that went to mass that evening received a host from the priest to bring home to me, however, I was immersed in prayer in bed, so they placed it on the dresser until I was finished. I consumed the host that same evening, immediately after I received this private revelation - God's timing was impeccable!).

I asked Jesus: “Are you really in there?” Much to my astonishment, the lid to the pyx suddenly opened and slammed shut with such audible force and sound that I will never forget it! As you can imagine, I immediately froze and could not move a single part of my body out of shear fear - I was in the presence of the Almighty and Immortal one - my Creator! At that moment I lay there frozen like a block of ice, but I  knew with absolute certainty, that the host was truly Jesus Christ our Lord.

Once His Divine Presence left the room and I was able to move and collect my thoughts again, I had a intense desire and yearning for the Eucharist - the Host really is Jesus Christ, My God and Saviour!  It was at this point in my life that I started to go to church again regularly. I was instantly inspired to research and learn everything I could about my beloved Jesus who had just revealed Himself to me - the joy that flooded my soul after this experience was immeasurable! 

The Shrine of Divine Mercy in Kraków-Łagiewniki, Poland 
Chapel of the miraculous image of the Merciful Jesus and the tomb of St. Faustina - Meditation

The Shrine of Divine Mercy in Kraków-Łagiewniki, Poland 
Chapel of the miraculous image of the Merciful Jesus and the tomb of St. Faustina

The miraculous image of Merciful Jesus painted by Adolf Hyła is placed above the side altar on the left side of the chapel dedicated to St. Joseph. It was blessed by Father Józef Andrasz SJ (Sister Faustina’s spiritual director) on 16 April 1944, on the first Sunday after Easter.This chapel was the place where Saint Faustina, The Apostle of The Divine Mercy prayed and received the extraordinary graces, including the revelations of Jesus and the Blessed Mother. It has since become the place of many pilgrimages  where believers come to ask for many graces.

One day I meditated on The Shrine of Divine Mercy where the miraculous image of Merciful Jesus and the tomb of Saint Faustina are to be found (I was viewing it on the internet).

I thought to myself, how wonderful it would be to be able to go to Poland and visit this chapel to talk to Jesus and Saint Faustina "in person". From this thought stemmed an intense innermost desire to visit this chapel to ask for graces. However, considering the chapel is in Poland, the distance poses a significant barrier for me. A feeling of discouragement and sadness suddenly filled my soul. Following this came a most consoling thought - perhaps, one day in the future it might be a possibility for me, so I hung on to that hope.

While I have not yet been able to make a pilgrimage to visit The Shrine of Divine Mercy in Poland, Jesus brought The Shrine to me soon enough - I refer to my church (where I received personal revelations of Jesus) as my "Mini Kraków".

A copy of the original Adolf Hyla image, with the Polish inscription "JEZU UFAM TOBIE" can be found there as well as a picture of Saint Faustina and Pope John Paul II. We have a Polish priest Father Josef Niesyto, dr hab., a Catholic priest, theologian from Poland. Although he is currently only doing the mass in French. The church echos sentiments of the Poland shrine!

Divine Mercy In My Soul - Diary by Saint Maria Faustyna Helena Kowalska - Meditation

One night while I felt my soul steeped in darkness, I meditated on the Diary - The intimate loving relationship of The Creator (Jesus) with the Creature (Faustina) via their conversations with each other.  I wanted to be her in that she was able to see and talk to Jesus/God face to face (like the apostles did). 

This meditation also invoked feelings of unworthiness, for after all St. Faustina was a religious, practically a saint while on earth. And me, well, suffice it to say, I just didn't feel I measured up at all. I thought, why would Jesus be interested in communing with me - who in all my misery, certainly did feel Holy at all?  Then came another thought, that while I wished for, I dare not ask for such a grace as I did not have the confidence I could do anything with it anyway.

Finally, in my frustration and despair, I asked Jesus:

Where are you? When are you coming to help us?   I am terrified for my children and grandchildren, to live in this world the way it has now become so evil, immoral and de-Christianized – abortion, euthanasia, suicide, pornography, human trafficking, etc. It seems You are no where to be found as You are being evicted from schools, hospitals, etc, etc?

Jesus' reply to me came soon enough - in such a way that was beyond my wildest dreams!  As a matter of fact, and much to my amazement, Jesus delivered His reply to me quite literally in person  - Face to Face!  Thank you Jesus!

 “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
(John 8:12)

“And you shall call upon me, and you shall go: and you shall pray to me, and I will hear you. You shall seek me, and shall find me: when you shall seek me with all your heart. And I will be found by you, saith the Lord: and I will bring back your captivity, and I will gather you out of all nations, and from all the places to which I have driven you out, saith the Lord: and I will bring you back from the place to which I caused you to be carried away captive.” Jeremiah 29:12-14
