 Our Description

Mary from MN told us: "Our next door neighbor listened to the St. Teresa CD and now knows the 'Gospel on five fingers'. His parents were so impressed he listened that they have now listened to almost all of our Glory Stories. Now we have to get more for gifts!" 

Allow your children to be inspired by these stories of the lives of the saints. Watch as your children's imaginations are captured as they listen to these professionally produced dramatizations. The Glory Stories tell the true stories of the lives of holy people of God and are catechetical and entertaining (to both children and adults)! Every story teaches a truth of the Catholic Faith and listeners get to know saints who set inspiring examples for youngsters to emulate in their early walk of Faith.

The Gospel on Five Fingers - Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta: This remarkable story teaches Mother Teresa's summary of the Gospel in a way a child (and adult) will never forget. Do you know what Mother Teresa told her Missionaries of Charity is, "The Gospel on Five Fingers?" Beginning with Teresa as a child learning from her mother, all the way to her finding her "call within a call", this CD inspires families to live out the Gospel in their own families just as Mother Theresa did on the streets of Calcutta.

Jesus, I Trust in You! - The Story of St. Faustina Kowalska: the Divine Mercy saint. Children love learning about this saint and about how we are to trust in Jesus, no matter what! Not only is this story is a great aid to preparing children for First Confession, but it is helpful to any child who needs a little courage now and then.

Brief Biography

Often called the "Apostle of Divine Mercy" Sr. Maria Faustina Kowalska was the third of ten children, she attended only three years of school. As a teenager, she worked as a domestic servant for other families. After being rejected by several religious orders, she became a nun in the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Warsaw, Poland on 1 August 1925; the order is devoted to care and education of troubled young women. She changed her name to Sister Maria Faustina of the Most Blessed Sacrament. During her 13 years in various houses, she was a cook, gardener, and porter.

She had a special devotion to Mary Immaculate, to the Blessed Sacrament, and to Reconciliation, which led to a deep mystical interior life. She began to have visions, receive revelations, and experience hidden stigmata. She began recording these mystical experiences in a diary; being nearly illiterate, it was written phonetically, without quotation marks or punctuation, and runs to nearly 700 pages. A bad translation reached Rome in 1958, and was labelled heretical. However, when Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) became Archbishop of Krakow, he was beseiged by requests for a reconsideration. He ordered a better translation made, and Vatican authorities realized that instead of heresy, the work proclaimed God's love. It was published as "Divine Mercy in my Soul."

In the 1930's, Sister Faustina received a message of mercy from Our Lord that she was told to spread throughout the world, a message of God's mercy to each person individually, and for humanity as a whole. Jesus asked that a picture be painted of him with the inscription: "Jesus, I Trust in You." She was asked to be a model of mercy to others, to live her entire life, in imitation of Christ's, as a sacrifice. She commissioned this painting in 1935, showing a red and a white light shining from Christ's Sacred Heart.

The Apostles of Divine Mercy is a movement of priests, religious, and lay people inspired by Faustina's experiences; they spread knowledge of the mystery of Divine Mercy, and invoke God's mercy on sinners. Approved in 1996 by the Archdiocese of Krakow, it has spread to 29 countries.

The Divine Mercy Devotion is now the second most popular Catholic devotion in the world, surpassed only by the Holy Rosary.
