About St. Faustina Kowalska
Feast Day: October 5
St. Faustina is known for her devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. Her family had ten children and was very poor. She joined the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy and experienced several visions of Jesus. She is known for her diary and for promoting devotion to Jesus as the King of Mercy which is particularly done by praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
The Divine Mercy Chaplet is prayed using a rosary. It asks God for his mercy and is especially prayed in times of distress and for those approaching death.
This litany was written by St. Faustina and is meant to be said in the presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Pray it during adoration or before the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle.
