Prayers to Saint Maria Faustina

Saint Maria Faustina is also known as the Apostle of the Divine Mercy. She was canonized as a saint on April 30, 2000. Saint Maria Faustina received a message of Divine Mercy from Our Lord that she was told to spread throughout the world.

Jesus said to her, 'Paint an image according to the pattern you see, with the inscription: Jesus, I trust You.' It wasn't until 3 years later that Eugene Kazimierowski painted the first image of the Divine Mercy. 

Saint Maria Faustina

Help me, O Lord, that my eyes may be merciful,
so that I may never suspect or judge from appearances,
but look for what is beautiful in my neighbor's soul.
Help me, O Lord, that my ears may be merciful,
so that I may give heed to my neighbor's needs. 
Help me, O Lord, that my tongue may be merciful,
so that I should never speak negatively of my neighbor.
Help me, O lord, that my hands may
be merciful and filled with good deeds,
so that I may do only good to my neighbor. 
Help me, O Lord, that my feet may be merciful,
so that I myself may feel all the sufferings of my neighbor. 
May Your mercy, O Lord, rest upon me. 

This prayer to be merciful gives us a true measure of our mercy.
