Yes, that's Fr. Seraphim Michalenko, MIC, leading expert on the life and spirituality of St. Faustina.

In a film directed by J. Paddy Nolan and produced by Pious Publications
 JPN Production in 1991 (before Faustina was even beatified), Fr. Seraphim guides viewers along the geographical and spiritual paths that defined the future saint.

We've broken the hour-long film down to four parts. Here's part 1:


Part 1: Introducing Faustina
Part 2: Christ Puts Faustina to Work
Part 3: The Very Heart of the Faith
Part 4: Faustina Proves She Will Not Forget Us

Maria - Aug 7, 2014

I have 3 crosses I am carrying at this time of my life. I'm a 49 yr old devout , faithful woman. My husband left me in Jan 2014 after celebrating his bday with me at the age of 50 and 26 years of marriage. Left me without explanation. In May I lost my house due to biohazard causing us to be displaced. In June, I was diagnosed with Thymoma cancer. A very rare cancer of thymus glands. I felt that the only way for me to carry my crosses is to pray the Divine Mercy daily. I am not out of the woods yet and my husband hired a very expenses lawyer to fight against me. I don't have the money to pay a lawyer and so I asked my husband to dropped the divorce but he insisted to proceed and end the marriage.
When I found out I have cancer... I know in my heart the His Divine Mercy will be with me during my surgery. I felt the healing within. Doctors are puzzled of my ailment since the tumor was sandwich between my heart and lungs. Doctors were successful of removing the tumor.
I am now healing and on recovery but my problems has not stop. My heart is not functioning right, I can't talk to a long time because of shortness of breath.
I am hoping to eventually come out of this illness and proclaim God's Love and Mercy.
I know and believe in my heart that I am healed but my doctors does not believe my positive outlook.
I continue to pray for healing and alleviate the crosses I am carrying right now. My family and I are still displaced, the divorce is still on going and my illness is still in questions.
Please pray for me! I know His Divine Mercy is with me and the Blessed Mother.
Thank you so much for your prayers that all these crosses will soon pass.
God bless,

I am a devotee of the Divine Mercy and I ask the intercession of Saint Faustina that may the Divine Love and Mercy of God will soon grant me complete healing of the solid painful lumps in my both breasts, my on and off body weakness and shortness of breath, asthma and osteoarthritis. God is the Master of All Healers and nothing is impossible with Him. And may the good Lord protect me and my family from our evil neighbor that's giving me daily stress. And I pray that in His perfect time He will eliminate them permanently in my life. Amen.

From big heart of my baby ,weak lungs because she's premature,four times intrauterine blood transfusion at my 26weeks.they say we will be lucky if we reach 7mons .we will deliver the baby.what more can I say 72days in NICU.And now she's diagnose of alpha Thalassemia turning1year recieving blood transfusion.All of these because of God's mercy shes has the reason to live.I will never stop believing on His mercy that miracle is going to happen for this baby.Specially now I am not alone asking for Gods mercy.I have sister Faustina with me praying and the Mama Mary who never leaves me.Asking forgiveness for all of my sins.And I thank the Lord for having the close encounter in my life for all of these.Amen

DEAR ST. FAUSTINA, Please pray for our grandchildren that they would be given the opportunity to go to Catholic school in their formative years of education. It will be this last year of our grand daughter in the public school she is attending and must transfer as the present school only goes up to 5th grade. Please pray for our daughter is so stiffed necked as to have Faith and Believe in Divine Providence. May through your prayers and intercession, she heed the message our Lord had sent through me and may The Divine Mercy awaken her heart and bring her soul closest to Him in prayers, homage and thanksgiving. Thank you, St. Faustina.
Amen.
