Saint of the Week

Throughout the month of November, Lakeland Catholic will be highlighting a different Saint each week. 

"The Saints were not superhuman. 

They were people who loved God in their hearts, 

and who shared this joy with others."

-Pope Francis

Week 4: Saint Faustina Kowalska

Apostle of Divine Mercy

In her daily life she was to become a doer of mercy, bringing joy and peace to others, and by writing about God's mercy, she was to encourage others to trust in Him and thus prepare the world for His coming again.
