This handy little book contains hundreds of direct quotes and short sayings of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, arranged according to the Christian virtues and other spiritual topics, allowing the reader to encounter her thoughts about particular aspects of the Christian life in a more organized manner.
The first fifteen chapters are arranged under virtues corresponding to the classical Fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary, making this ideal for anyone to use for daily spiritual reading and inspiration. Reading these sayings while reciting the Rosary is like praying it with St. Faustina, joining both prayer and the study of her writings in one great journey of advancing all the more in holiness and the love of God.
The visions of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska (1905 – 1938) are the basis for the modern Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy. Behind the extraordinary phenomena that marked her life was a deep humility and a burning desire to see all of mankind converted to God by the attraction and power of His mercy. More than the visions about the Divine Mercy, what comes through her Diary is the deep spirituality that eventually led her to the heights of sanctity, ultimately resulting in her canonization.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We started building the “Chapter House” to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
