Movie Info

Polish filmmaker Jerzy Lukaszewicz directs the religious drama Faustina, based on the real life of Sister Mary Faustina, born Helena Kowalska in 1905 as the third of ten children. Even as a child, she had experienced visions of Jesus Christ, which would continue throughout her life. In 1925, she joined the Polish convents of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy and took the name Sister Mary Faustina. This film features dramatized stories from her life, based on actual writings from her spiritual journals and personal diaries. Faustina died of tuberculosis in 1938, was beatified as a saint in 1993, and canonized in 2000 by Pope John Paul II. Starring Dorota Segda and Danuta Szaflarska, Faustina won Best Feature at the Catholic Film Festival in 1995.

Audience Reviews for Faustina

I suppose this film means more to me at this place in my life. I simply found it powerful, incredibly well constructed, acted, and quietly symbolized. It's one of those films you are so glad you ehard about, because you cannot figure out how on Earth you would have but for this internet. :fresh: Praise be to St. Faustina and her message of Our Lord Jesus' Mercy for us all.
