The following was first published in the Summer 2000 issue of the Bulletin, now Marian Helper magazine.

By Patrick Novecosky

Father Ron Pytel has had some big days, but few were as important as Divine Mercy Sunday 2000. "After my ordination, it was the most emotional day of my life," Fr. Ron says of standing alongside the Holy Father on April 30 and hearing him declare Sr. Maria Faustina the first saint of the Great Jubilee.

"I've been blessed by the Lord with a wonderful healing through Sr. Faustina's intercession. My healing became the canonization miracle. So it was awesome to see her become a saint. And now, more people than ever will hear of the message of mercy," he says.

It has been nearly five years since doctors gave Fr. Ron three to five years to live. At that time, he was extremely thin and pale with a badly damaged heart.

"I suppose I probably shouldn't be around anymore," jokes the 52-year-old pastor of Holy Rosary parish in Baltimore, Md. "But I'm living proof that miracles do happen."

The miracle is not only that Fr. Ron is alive, but that his permanent heart ailment is gone. As a matter of fact, he says he is in better health today than he's ever been.

'His Heart Touched Mine'
On Oct. 5, 1995, the feast day of St. Faustina (who was then a blessed), Fr. Ron and some friends gathered for prayer at Holy Rosary Church, which is also the Baltimore archdiocesan Shrine of The Divine Mercy. After a time of prayer for the healing of his heart through Sr. Faustina's intercession, Fr. Ron venerated a relic of St. Faustina and collapsed. He felt paralyzed, but was completely at peace. A subsequent visit to his cardiologist showed that his heart had been healed.

Although he was healed through St. Faustina's intercession, Fr. Ron is quick to point out that Jesus healed him. "I know in my heart that Faustina put in a word with Jesus, and His Heart touched mine. It's as simple as that," he explains.

After almost three years of examining Fr. Ron and his medical records, doctors and theologians from the Congregation for the Cause of Saints concluded an exhaustive investigation of the healing.

And on Dec. 20, 1999, Pope John Paul II ordered publication of the fact of the healing as a miracle through Sr. Faustina's intercession, leading to her canonization on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 30, in St. Peter's Square.

Blessed with Peace
When you meet Fr. Ron, the first thing you notice is how radiant he is — and that he's a man completely at peace. And when you hear him speak, his enthusiasm for St. Faustina and Divine Mercy is infectious.

"Personally, I'm still in awe," he says. "Sometimes I wake up and ask myself if I've just had a four-year dream. Spiritually, my prayer life has intensified tremendously.

"I've had a peace that has been with me through everything that has taken place," he explains. "I've also been blessed with a calmness, a gentleness. I think it's made me more open to the struggles of other people."

Ministering to Others
People have sensed that openness and have come in droves to the Baltimore shrine. The number of people visiting Holy Rosary Church for daily Mass has also increased. On the second Sunday of every month, the parish holds Divine Mercy devotions.

"There are so many more people coming to this Mass. We usually have more than 50 people stay after Mass to receive the Anointing of the Sick and venerate St. Faustina's relic," Fr. Ron says.

"There's a real hunger for the Lord's healing touch in people's lives. So I'm doing a lot of counseling as more people come for prayers and healing. I'm also receiving many requests to speak.

"This whole experience has changed my life drastically — especially in the number of phone calls I receive," he laughs. "In one day, I normally get 20 to 25 voice messages. I've done literally hundreds of hours of spiritual direction over the phone."

Accepting God's Timing
During the investigation of his healing, Fr. Ron says he was hoping for a quick decision from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. However, as the case dragged on, Fr. Ron became more willing to accept the Lord's timing.

"And as it turns out, God's timing was perfect," he explains enthusiastically. "She's the saint of the millennium! She's being held up as the model for us. And the significance of the date on which she was canonized is perfect. On April 30, 1926, she received her habit and her name — Faustina. And 74 years later, she has a new name — St. Faustina!"

Editor's note: After his miracle healing that led to St. Faustina's canonization, Fr. Ron Pytel died from inoperable kidney cancer Nov. 3, 2003.

Wanda - Dec 15, 2016

St.Faustina, I am asking for your help for my family. My 10 year old boy struggles with Attention def. disorder- and behaviors before he takes his medication in the morning hours. It is like the evil in him shows- he yells at everyone, hits, pushes, swears and is just mean. After he takes his medication- he is a sweet natured boy. He is kind to all! Please help him to rid of this horrible evilness in the morning and help him to rid of the attention problem. School is a struggle for him and all of my sweet children. Please help them all to do better at school and excel in their studies. Please help my husband who has little patience with me and my children. He yells at us all of the time and I can take his harsh words but my sweet children can not. They need encouragement in their lives and not negativity directed at them. Please help my husband to grow in the faith of the lord. He goes to church weekly, but I think that is where his faith ends. Please help him to love Jesus and our God and help him to treat others better. Please help my marriage of 13 years to grow in love, I am stuck in a rut with my husband. My love for him is wavering due to the way he treats us- please help us. Please help me to rid of my horrible depression. I am on medication and it helps but the morning are rough. I have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning- always tired and then my son is so hurtful to me in the morning is hard on me. Please help my family. I am going to start a daily devotion to the Divine Mercy. I try to pray the rosary daily, but I am going to offer it to the lord to help all those in need of his Mercy. Please pray for my family St. Faustina and Mary my mother. Please have mercy on us all. If there are others in greater need, please help them instead.

St. Faustina, please I am desperate to have your grace and that of our Lord. I too suffer from lymphedema in both legs and am in pain and much swelling. I pray for the miracle of healing. I also pray that you safely journey me to Poland to adopt my anticipated/referred children and keep me safe in all areas. I pray as well for increased flexibility in my work and increased pay and a better living arrangement. While these sound materialistic, they are for me and my children's health and welfare.
And if you could find me a husband, I would love it! But mostly I pray for complete healing of my lymphedema so that I can return to my lovely leges as I had in 1988/1989. The swelling makes me so sad and reclusive. I pray for a miracle of healing St. Faustina. Bless me although I am not worthy of your attention.

St. Faustina I pray for your intercession to the Divine Mercy. I pray to be completely healed of my hip dysplasia and OA which were just diagnosed yesterday. I know I have my whole life ahead of me, and I know and accept HIS great plans for my life. I claim that this challenge is but an opportunity for God to show his unfathomable mercy. I long to be able to walk down the aisle next year without any pain or limitations. I pray to see my future children grow up and be able to take care of them and play with them, without me having any trace of this affliction. St. Faustina please pour the most precious blood of Jesus on me that all my afflictions be washed away. In faith I ask you to intercede for me, my loved ones, and all those who ask for your prayers. Heavenly Father for the sake of the sorrowful passion of your Son, have mercy on us and and the whole world, Amen.

To each and everyone of you who offered prayers to the Divine Mercy , I fervently pray that He may grant you the best answer to your prayers. I humbly ask for your prayers too.

Rebecca M. - May 27, 2015

Thank You St Faustina for healing my heart. I was suffering from severe pulmonary hypertension, when Dr Michael Chen was doing surgery he discovered a hole in my heart. He recommended heart surgery within one week, I was devastated. Good ole dad said, let's pray to St Faustina, you know she is my miracle worker -----Dad would always go to Emmittsburg MD. to pray before St Faustinas image [statue] whenever he needed Her intersession for a very, very special request. ----St Faustina has always put the good word in for dads requests.----------------Thank you St Faustina for assisting DR.s James A. Thompson and DR. Joyce Hairston in the surgery, the outcome was successful, the DR.s were able to close the hole in my heart.

St. Faustina I pray to you to intercede for me to receive the Peace and Contentment that only a strong Faith can bring. I have prayed for my health and I know that that I am in the hands of My Lord. Please, help me to believe that when I give everything to My Lord, I have nothing to worry about. I pray to you for good results in my next visit to the gastroenterologist. I will leave everything to you St. Faustian, protect me.
I also pray for my family and my friends. My son Zachary, who with the grace of God I have regained his love and respect. Thank you for your Blessings and your protection.

Earl Pal-ing - May 2, 2015

I would like to ask fervently the healing prayer of Jesus through St. Faustina because I have had swelling on my armpit for almost two years now and has not yet subsided.
I also would like to have a healing for my youngest daughter named Ysha Pal-ing because she had undergone failed surgery on her both eyes at two (2) months old and now she's 10 years old and one eye was left to function. She had three (3) eye surgery already.
My wife had swelling on her upper left area gum cyst formation and it was noticed almost 4 years already and have not been gone ever since.
Please also my eldest daughter suffered occasional asthma attack.
I hope everyone could understand my aching heart for having all these ailments around my family. I am only one who is working and to provide my families needs and wants including my mother. I hope God will help earnestly. I do believe in the miracles of God and that is why I was lefted up in my position and so I also prayed with the Lord Jesus Christ with MOther Mary's help. I know we will be healed one day.

I want to thank God, St. Faustina and blessed Xavier Seelos for interceding for my brother who passed away on Oct. 5th 2013. The day of his death was filled with grace and beautiful signs of Gods mercy and providence. We had been praying the Chaplet for him for 3 years. He struggeled with drug addiction, mental and physical illness. He passed into eternal life on St. Faustina's feast day. It was a day filled with miracles. On the morning of the day he died he and I spoke about our faith and about it being St. Faustina's and Blessed Seelos feast day. We did not know he would pass that evening, he died suddenly of cardiac arrest. God has given us many consolations since then also. Thank You Sacred Heart of Jesus for your Divine Mercy!

David - Oct 25, 2014

I came across St Faustina's diary by accident. My faith was wavering and I felt that because of my sins I lost hope in salvation. The message of the book changed my life to where I feel though prayer, devotion,healing and acts of mercy I can be a child of a merciful God again. Recently, a very dear friend of mine was in the hospital once again but this time they felt there was little hope, all her systems were shutting down, breathing very difficult. Who do I turn to? I prayed the Chaplet for her and asked for the intercession of St Faustina and prepared myself for news of her passing. This afternoon I received the phone call; the call that proves miracles are happening---She is HOME and feeling much better. Praise God; His Son, Jesus; and thank you for the intercession of St Faustina and the loving care of our Heavenly Mother.
