Announcing our family Saint for the year....
St. Maria Faustina Kowalska.
The kids all get so excited at the end of each year when I tell them I know who our new Saint of the Year will be. I love to see their joy in the anticipation.
Pope Francis declared this year a Year of Mercy. That's all he had to say and the Holy Spirit 'tapped me on the shoulder' and put St. Faustina on my heart.
Years ago I had the privilege of visiting Poland and the area where St. Faustina spent part of her life. I can't wait to share more about her with the kids and ask for her intercession throughout the year.
