Saint Faustina House Intro
Howdy! My name is Emma Felicidario, I’m from the Woodlands, TX (just north of Houston) and I’m a senior Public Health major!! Just to tell you a little bit about me: I’m from a family of 6 kids, and that’s definitely made me a pretty big people person. I’m a huge coffee person. Like seriously, any kind of coffee, anytime. I really love music, being outside, and spending time with my family and friends (I have 4 nieces and 1 nephew and I can almost guarantee that in the time we have at connect there will be pictures shown of them). Lastly, I really, really love my faith. My faith has changed radically since being here at St. Mary’s, and I can’t wait to share that with y’all. Know that I’m praying for you already, and I can’t wait meet each of you!!
I am a junior mechanical engineering major from San Antonio, Tx. I was born August 27, 1998 into the Perry family which includes two older brothers, two loving parents, and the greatest dog of all time. When I have free time, I enjoy all things with friends, especially playing sports, enjoying a feast (in Mass or elsewhere), or just being. I’m very passionate about theology, saint history, and Ignatian prayer. Future goals of mine are to get to Heaven and take as many people with me as possible, as well as to invent the newest, coolest dumaflache with the knowledge I gain from mechanical engineering. I spend lots of my time at St. Mary’s because at the heart of the community there is a desire for sainthood. This desire inspires each member to outwardly love each other and to be Jesus to everyone and see Jesus in everyone. There’s no better place to be formed than in a community that will love you with everything it has.
About St. Faustina:
Helen kowalska was born in the village of Glogowiec, Turek County, Lodz Province, Poland August 25, 1905. At 7 years old, before the blessed sacrament, she experienced the deep love of God in her heart, calling her to a more perfect way of life. She discerned this call to more and after many struggles, joined the Sisters of our Lady of Mercy. There she experienced visits from Jesus himself. Jesus revealed his great desire for a devotion to his merciful love. In these visits he revealed himself to her as the merciful savior with a red ray coming from his heart, symbolizing his blood poured out for us in the Eucharist and a blue ray, representing flowing water washing us clean from sin. Jesus also instructed her in how to pray the Divine Mercy chaplet and asked her to paint an image of him exactly the way she sees him. All these things are penned in "The Diary of St. Faustina."
