What's Up With Faustina's Divine Mercy Devotion?
Unanswered Questions & Things You May Not Know
By M.M. Anthony
WHAT NO ONE'S EVER TOLD YOU ABOUT FAUSTINA'S DIVINE MERCY DEVOTION!
Is truth important to you?
How was a once forbidden devotion later allowed?
How much do you REALLY know about St. Faustina's Divine Mercy devotion?
Did you know that Faustina admits her body smelled like a corpse? Did you know her diary contains factual errors, contradictions, unfulfilled prophecies, and theological issues?
Did you know Faustina claims a crucifix came alive on her chest? And that Jesus' face on the curtain supposedly cried "large tears" onto her bedspread? That she supposedly has visions, hears voices, holds Jesus' hand and receives embraces from Jesus & Mary?
Were you aware that Faustina's version of Jesus supposedly sits in the chalice and runs and plays on the altar? That He supposedly calls Faustina a "sweet grape", "beloved pearl of My Heart", "the honor and glory of My Passion", and supposedly says that "the entire Holy Trinity finds Its special delight in you"? And that her version of Mary - who wears transparent(!) clothing - supposedly leaves the infant Jesus alone with Faustina and disappears?
Did you know Faustina has grandiose thoughts (e.g. "It seems to me that the whole world serves me and depends on me", "I felt that everything that existed was exclusively mine", "I also feel that God, absolutely self-sufficient though He is, cannot be happy without me"), admits to "often" speaking untruthfully ("I often represented myself to my superiors other than I was in reality and spoke of miseries of which I had no notion"), reproaches a saint, orders Jesus around, calls God a "Mother" and a "divine Madman"? And that Jesus supposedly 'dotes' on her, places her above all other virgins, promises her a "permanent income" and a "new world" to live in? Jesus supposedly tells her to inform her superiors about how great she is ("the most faithful daughter in the Order") and even leaves the Blessed Virgin's arms to approach Faustina. He allegedly unites Himself with no other soul "as closely" as He does with Faustina and has more "intimacy" with her than even the angels. She claims "all that exists" is hers, that the Lord's gaze rests upon her "before any other creature". Although her writings have a number of theological concerns, she claims to have "interior knowledge of God" and even claims to know "the entire essence of God."
Did you know Faustina has doubts about her alleged visions, has difficulty knowing whether something happened in a dream or in reality, is quite emotional and dramatic, claims she won't undergo judgment, claims the Blessed Virgin is in a "special and exclusive way" her Mother, says that "Jesus allowed me to penetrate His interior", and claims that Jesus literally(!) took her heart (so that she has no heart). And despite all the alleged heavenly encounters, Faustina considers her life to be "drab"!
Although Faustina's Divine Mercy devotion is very popular, it's clearly not without controversy, including the fact that it was initially forbidden, that it contains elements pleasing to modernists and Protestants, and that there is arguably a stark contrast between it and Fatima, not to mention Holy Scripture. Many follow Faustina's devotion nowadays without really knowing what's in it or what problems may exist.
