The Surprising Souls St. Faustina Saw In Purgatory – “That Prison Of Suffering”.

The Surprising Souls St. Faustina Saw In Purgatory – “That Prison Of Suffering”.

​“That Prison of Suffering”: The Surprising People St. Faustina Saw in Purgatory.

St. Maria Faustina

St. Faustina Kowalska was one of the greatest mystics of the 20th century. In Poland in the 1920s-30s, she experienced many supernatural visions of Jesus and various saints, and was given the Divine Mercy Chaplet, among other things.

During one of her mystical experiences, she had a vision of Purgatory – and saw someone you might not expect.

“[M]y guardian angel… ordered me to follow him,” she wrote in mid-1926. “In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently, but to no avail, for themselves; only we can come to their aid.”

She got to speak to the souls in Purgatory. “I asked these souls what their greatest suffering was. They answered me in one voice that their greatest torment was longing for God.”

Then she saw someone you probably wouldn’t expect. “I saw Our Lady visiting the souls in purgatory. The souls call her ‘The Star of the Sea.’ She brings them refreshment.”

Amazing! Let this be a reminder that we should all be praying regularly for the souls in Purgatory.
Here’s the full passage about Purgatory in St. Faustina’s diary:

“I saw my guardian angel, who ordered me to follow him. In a moment I was in a misty place full of fire in which there was a great crowd of suffering souls. They were praying fervently, but to no avail, for themselves; only we can come to their aid. The flames, which were burning them, did not touch me at all. My guardian angel did not leave me for an instant. I asked these souls what their greatest suffering was. They answered me in one voice that their greatest torment was longing for God.

“I saw Our Lady visiting the souls in purgatory. The souls call her ‘The Star of the Sea.’ She brings them refreshment. I wanted to talk with them some more, but my guardian angel beckoned me to leave. We went out of that prison of suffering. [I heard an interior voice, which said]:

‘My mercy does not want this, but justice demands it. Since that time I am in closer communion with the suffering souls.’” (Diary: Divine Mercy in My Soul, 20).

May the faithful departed, by the mercy of God, rest in peace!

The Mysterious Story Of St. Faustina And The Flying Eucharist!

The Mysterious Story Of St. Faustina And The Flying Eucharist!


The Mysterious Story of St. Faustina vs. the Flying Eucharist.


    Previously, we shared St. Faustina’s beautiful Litany to the Blessed Host. Today we’re sharing the story of a unique and mysterious Eucharistic miracle she experienced.
St. Faustina was one of the great mystics of the 20th century, and she recorded her amazing regular supernatural experiences in her diary. In a passage dated to the late 1920s, she shares a number of fascinating stories about her personal encounters with Jesus Christ, both in apparitions and in the Eucharist. One amazing story stands out that took place while she was praying in her convent’s chapel.
“One day Jesus said to me, ‘I am going to leave this house,” the diary reads. “Because there are things here which displease Me.’” (Diary, 44ff)
Then something strange happened: the Eucharist left the tabernacle on its own and flew to her! “And the Host came out of the tabernacle and came to rest in my hand…”
If this were you, what would you do in this situation? The Blessed Eucharist – which is Christ’s body, blood, soul, and divinity – has just miraculously started moving around the room and landed in your hand. Would you be scared? Confused? Would you just freeze?
Well here’s how the saint responded: “I, with joy, placed it back in the tabernacle.”
But the Eucharist kept moving. “This was repeated a second time, and I did the same thing. Despite this, it happened a third time…”
After the third time, though, something new happened: “…the Host was transformed into the living Lord Jesus, who said to me, ‘I will stay here no longer!’”
Now, Jesus has told her twice that he wants to leave, and she has prevented him multiple times. After this second declaration, wouldn’t you think a saint would relent?
Not this saint! She confidently told Our Lord that she just wouldn’t let him leave the convent. She explains:
“At this, a powerful love for Jesus rose up in my soul, I answered, ‘And I, I will not let You leave this house, Jesus! And again Jesus disappeared while the Host remained in my hands. Once again I put it back in the chalice and closed it up in the tabernacle.”
This time, it was Jesus who relented. “And Jesus stayed with us.”
But the polish nun didn’t leave it at that. Jesus had said he had wanted to leave due to “things here which displease me.” So, in a very saintly manner, she took it on herself to try to atone for the problems: “I undertook to make three days of adoration by way of reparation.”
And that’s all she says about the encounter. What an incredible story of a wonderfully personal and intimate encounter with Our Lord!
St. Faustina, please pray for us!

Saint Faustina’s Little Known Litany To The Holy Eucharist.

Some of us may have probably heard of the Divine Mercy Chaplet, which was given to St. Faustina by Christ. But have you heard of her beautiful Litany to the Blessed Host?

St. Faustina was one of the great mystics of the 20th century, and she recorded her amazing regular supernatural experiences in her diary.

In a passage dated January 4, 1935, she explains the holy way she spent the final hours of 1934: in intense prayer before Christ in the Eucharist. (Diary, 352ff) Then, as the clock struck midnight, she broke out into a litany of praise to Jesus in the Eucharist!

Saint Maria Faustina’s ‘Dearest Treasure’, The Infant Jesus.

Saint Maria Faustina’s ‘Dearest Treasure’, The Infant Jesus.

We Do associate St. Maria Faustina Kowalska with the risen and glorified Christ depicted in The Divine Mercy image. Yet few saints in the history of the Church were as devoted to the Child Jesus as St. Faustina. While she particularly remembered the Christ Child at Christmastime, He was a living presence that she grew to appreciate throughout the year — a constant source of inspiration and joy.

Joy and Wonder in His Presence.

In fact, sometimes Jesus appeared to St. Faustina as a child with no other clear purpose than to express His tender love for her and rejoice her heart. It became a gift of the Divine Presence. On Christmas Eve in 1937, for example, St. Faustina writes of one such encounter with the Holy Child:
    “When I arrived at Midnight Mass, from the very beginning I steeped myself in deep recollection, during which time I saw the stable of Bethlehem filled with great radiance. The Blessed Virgin, all lost in the deepest of love, was wrapping Jesus in swaddling clothes, but Saint Joseph was still asleep. Only after the Mother of God put Jesus in the manger did the light of God awaken Joseph, who also prayed. But after a while, I was left alone with the Infant Jesus who stretched out His little hands to me, and I understood that I was to take Him in my arms. Jesus pressed His head against my heart and gave me to know, by His profound gaze, how good He found it to be next to my heart”(Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, 1442).
