If you've ever wanted to read through St. Faustina's Diary but felt a little intimated by it, this is the podcast for you. St. Faustina was a Polish nun who received special private revelations from Christ over the course of many years. She took these communications and wrote them down into a diary. Christ stressed to her His desire to pour forth His Divine Mercy on souls. The goal of this podcast is to go through the diary prayerfully and reflectively throughout the year. Each day, there will be a 10-12 minute reading with a short reflection. Follow along as we dive into the mystic revelations of Christ's Divine Mercy.
Day 291 with St. Faustina's Diary
Today's readings are from Notebook 5, numbers 1444-1448.
Most of our readings today are Christ's words. Really, really pay attention to what He is saying. He talks about how hard it is on Him when people are indifferent toward Him in Holy Communion. He greatly desires us to meet Him in the Sacrament of Reconciliation so we can receive His mercy. He wants more than anything for us to receive His mercy and love.
Day 290 with St. Faustina's Diary
Today's readings are from Notebook 5, numbers 1437-1443.
Parental warning: I will be talking about Santa today, so you may want to listen without young children around.
Congratulations on another 10 days down!
So, it is Christmas Eve with Sister Faustina. Really focus on all the different emotions she goes through and her constant focus on God during this special time of year.
Day 289 with St. Faustina's Diary
Today's readings are from Notebook 5, numbers 1433-1436.
Is God allowed to be angry? I have heard numerous people over the years talk about how it's wrong for God to ever be angry. "The Old Testament God is just an angry God." Sister Faustina is going to write a lot about God's anger in our readings today and she spells out exactly what God gets angry about. Hint: It's sin.
Day 288 with St. Faustina's Diary
Today's readings are from Notebook 5, numbers 1428-1432.
You are going to feel for Sister Faustina today. She is suffering greatly and the other Sisters around her are not being very compassionate or understanding. We will be talking about how we are not privy to all that is going on in someone's life. We need to realize that there may be inner turmoil going on that may explain why someone is acting a certain way.
Day 287 with St. Faustina's Diary
Today's readings are from Notebook 5, numbers 1423-1427.
I think one of the hardest things about being a Catholic today is when you have to hold the line and defend the teachings of the Catholic Church. They are not popular with the culture and even with some Catholics. It can be hard to be the only one, it seems, not relishing in everyone else's sin, as many in the culture do. Sister Faustina shares in some joy with another Sister when she knows that she shouldn't.
Day 286 with St. Faustina's Diary
Today's readings are from Notebook 5, numbers 1417-1422.
Christians are often accused of being all faith and no science. Which is ridiculous seeing as hundreds of scientific discoveries have been found by people of faith. As Christians, we are free to follow both faith and science. Science is a tool given to us by God to understand the material world. However, Christ today is going to talk about the importance of having a deep faith in things that can't be seen.
I just came across your podcast recently. Thank you for your sacrifice in putting this together. Your reading, your dad’s background music and your thoughts of St. Faustina’s diary is beautiful. I could just sense your sincere love for Jesus through his Divine Mercy. And, it’s contagious.
I love the Eucharist as you have come to love it. Receiving the Eucharist at Daily Mass makes my day one of honoring Our Lord Jesus Christ. When I’m unable to attend Mass, my day seems different. I tend to pray more on those days asking for Mercy. The Eucharist is the glue that holds Roman Catholics together when received in proper disposition. Vivat Jesus
this is great. the reflections after the readings really connect with me
