My family is developing a relationship with St. Faustina, I'm pleased to say. She has now twice interceded for our family.

On Aug. 21, 2008, I was at my daughter-in-law's bedside during the delivery of her second child, who was to be named Zachary. Because Zachary was a big baby, the delivery was difficult. As time passed and I started to worry, I noticed it was almost 3 p.m., the Great Hour of Mercy. I prayed to St. Faustina, asking her to please help this precious child enter the world healthy.

She answered my petition. Zachary was born at 3:35 p.m. He was a healthy boy.

On the second occasion, March 22, 2009, our 30-year-old son, Michael (Zachary's father), was helping get our boat ready for the coming boating season. The boat was dry docked in the boat yard, propped up on cinder blocks. It stood about 15 feet off the ground.

Michael fell off of the top portion of the boat while attempting to fasten a canvas cover. A helicopter flew him to the nearest trauma center for examination and diagnosis of his injuries.

I prayed to St. Faustina again, asking her to please help us in our request to have Michael not sustain serious injuries. After CT scans and other tests, he was told he had a slight fracture of a vertebra, which required no surgery, and a sprained hip.

I have no doubt that St. Faustina had heard my prayers on both occasions and interceded for us. To honor her and in gratitude for a healthy son and grandson, we named our boat "Faustina" so that she may continue to protect our family for years to come.

My husband and I will be eternally grateful to St. Faustina.
