Saint Faustina is most known for her connection with Divine Mercy. Saint Faustina was born in Poland to a poor but religious family. She was the third of 10 children. During a vision where she witnessed the Suffering Christ, Saint Faustina entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy and took the name Sr. Maria Faustina of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

Saint Faustina became God's messenger of of Divine Mercy and began writing a diary that focused entirely on Divine Mercy. On February 22, 1931, Jesus appeared to Saint Faustina and she shared thoughts about Divine Mercy and what would later be the the portrait of Divine mercy.

Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska

To celebrate today we enjoyed a nice Polish soup I prepared in the crockpot. Kielbasa and Cabbage Soup! Everyone loved it. Ironically enough, the local grocery store was running a "half-way to Saint Patrick's Day" Sale. I've never heard of a Sale like that before but it helped me buy the cabbage at a great price!

2 Links Kielbasa (Sliced)
1 Large Onion (Diced)
1/2 lb Shredded Carrots
1 lb Red Potatoes (Diced)
1/2 Small Cabbage ( Chopped)
1/4 Cup Minced Garlic
32 oz Vegetable Broth (you can use whatever broth you like, this is what I had on hand)
2 Tbsp Parsley (Chopped)
Black Pepper and Salt to taste

Dump all ingredients into the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high 4-6 hours. 

We also enjoyed some pumpkin eggnog with whipped cream and pumpkin spice for dessert. It was a nice quiet evening. I hope your celebration was just as good!

Saint Faustina, pray for us!
