Faustina: First saint of 21st century portrayed in one-woman play

St. Luke Productions will be presenting the one-woman live production of Faustina: Messenger of Divine Mercy at the Marian University Theater, 3200 Cold Spring Road in Indianapolis, at 7 p.m. on April 29.

The production tells the story of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, whom Pope John Paul II canonized in April 2000.

St. Faustina was a Polish nun who lived from 1905 to 1938. She started having visions of Jesus in 1930, which she documented in a diary.

In one of the visions, Jesus appeared to Kowalska in a white robe with rays of white and red light emanating from near his heart. He told her to have his image painted with, “Jesus, I trust in you,” written at the bottom, and asked her to hold a feast the Sunday after Easter, which is now known as the Sunday of Divine Mercy. This feast was promoted by Blessed John Paul II, who will be canonized on April 27 with Blessed John XXIII—Divine Mercy Sunday—this year.

Tickets for the show—recommended for those ages 12 and older—are $10 per person, or $7 for Marian University students, and there is no charge for priests, religious and seminarians.

Tickets can be purchased by logging on to DivineMercy.brownpapertickets.com or by contacting Maureen Devlin at 317-610-9384.
