One thought on “The Diary of St. Faustina

  • My entire fllamiy has prayed the Rosary and then the Chaplet daily for healing for my brother who is a severe alcoholic. We would even gather on Friday nights to pray the Rosary together for this healing knowing that it is promised in Matthew 18:19 that when two or more or gathered ANYTHING they ask for in Jesus’ name will be granted by the father. My sister and her family drove an hour in the dark to get to my home but we were all commited and believed God’s word. We have been praying for at least 15 years now. The mother who raised us to be strong Catholics even began to feel that God was not hearing or answering our prayer. I would remind her of all the things that God had spared my brother and us for he never hurt anyone when he would choose to drive while he was drinking, the house had not caught on fire while he would smoke in bed, and so very many things were spared that we know not.Continuing to drink close to 1/2 gallon of Rum/day, we knew that God was giving him a chance to straighten up his life but he did not respond until about two weeks ago he called our Priest and told him he wanted him to come over and hear his last confession and wanted to receive the Sacrament of the Sick. The priest could not come on that short notice but went to the hospital the next day for Buddy was admitted with alcohol poisoining. He was then discharged 3 days later. Buddy’s dog died on Monday of Holy Week and Buddy started drinking again on Good Friday. He was found dead next to his bed yesterday, Easter Friday at 3 a.m. the Hour of Divine Mercy somewhere in the world! Something woke my sister up and she went in to check on him for he had been snoring very loudly 2 hours earlier. When she called his name he did not respond. EMS was there right away but CPR did not bring his life back. As we waited for his body to be picked up we said the 8th Day of the Novena of Divine Mercy and the intention was for all the holy souls in Purgatory. In a quick instant we were graced with knowing that the fact that we were praying for the Holy Souls in Puragatory was God telling us that our prayers have been answered and He had just given Buddy the healing we had been praying for all these years!!! For He is love and mercy itself! The most incredible, undescribable peace and gratitude came over all of us. Buddy is now healed, out of pain and now able to pray for us as he is cleansed for the entry to be with our Bridegroom, Jesus! I am grateful for our Blessed John Paul the Great for the gift of his wisdom in listening to St. Faustina’s request and giving us the Novena, Chaplet and Feast of Divine Mercy Sunday! Praying for his Canonization! and in gratitude for our precious Pope Benedict XVI!Kathie in Austin, Texas
