Mercy In The Streets

Many people ask me why I would choose to go to the Russian Far East. Some days I ask myself that very question! The answer, however, is surprisingly simple.

There are children who are living on the street, children who have no one to take care of them and who never know if they will have enough to eat or where they will find warm clothes to get them through the bitter winter. Thoughts of these children trying to survive in a harsh land haunted my sleep, and I would think again and again, "They don't even have anyone to care if they live or die."

A Model of Mercy

We learned after her funeral that the date on which she died - August 25 - was the 100th birthday of St. Faustina, the herald of Divine Mercy to whom our mother was so devoted!
