Saint Faustina and Divine Mercy God’s Messenger of Divine Mercy
Bob and Penny Lord trace the life of Saint Faustina and the Origin of Divine Mercy Devotion.
There is a time for Mercy and a time for Justice. Expelling Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden was an act of God’s Justice. But even then, as the Angel was blocking the way to the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden,1 and ushering our first parents out into the cold world, God was showing His Mercy to us through His promise of the Messiah, the Redeemer. God has always lived up to His Word. Throughout Salvation history, we have been beneficiaries of God’s Mercy. And very few times has He let loose His Justice. Sodom and Gomorrah was God’s Justice. Noah and the Ark was God’s Justice, but also mingled with God’s Mercy. The miracle of Moses and the Jews crossing the Red Sea was God’s Mercy, coupled with God’s Justice on the Pharaoh’s charioteers. When finally we are in the last days, with possibly the end of the world at hand, and we are about to face the Last Judgment, at that time the God of Mercy will give way to the God of Justice.
