Faustina, Saint for Our Times
A Personal Look at Her Life, Spirituality, and Legacy
by Rev. George W. Kosicki, CSB
with David C. CameSt. Faustina, 'a Real Person Acting Here and Now'
This is much more than simply a biography of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska. In Faustina, Saint for Our Times, Fr. George Kosicki, CSB, explains in a deeply personal and insightful way why St. Faustina's life, spirituality, and mission are of importance to us today. After writing numerous books based on the Diary of St. Faustina and leading several pilgrimages to her homeland of Poland, he opens this book with these lines about the great apostle of Divine Mercy, "I want to tell you about my favorite saint, who is important not only to me but to the Church of the third millennium."
Fr. Kosicki first lays the foundation for understanding her life, mission, and spirituality. Then, he explores why she is the saint of the new millennium and how her mission of mercy continues today, especially through the papacies of John Paul II and now Benedict XVI.
Father Kosicki concludes by suggesting ways we can respond to The Divine Mercy message from growing in trust to practical tips on living mercifully.
"This is a book to keep for a long time. You will also want to share copies with friends who are sincerely seeking to grow in the love of God and Christian discipleship. The mystery of Divine Mercy is an essential and most powerful element in the Christian life. Here, you will find it very well explored through the life and experiences of the great and humble mystic of our times."
