Father Seraphim Michalenko, MIC

He's one of the brilliant priest I've known because he served as vice-postulator for North America in St. Maria Faustina's canonization cause.The Lord makes clear in Scripture that when He returns He's not going to deal with sin, because He's done that once and for all. When He comes again, it's "to bring salvation to those who eagerly await Him" (Heb 9:28).
So when people ask me why is the message of Divine Mercy important for the world today, the answer is simple: Through the message of Divine Mercy, our Lord is preparing us for His final coming.
He told the great prophet of Divine Mercy, St. Maria Faustina, in one of a series of revelations in the 1930s: "Mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to My Mercy" (Diary of St. Faustina, 300).
Helena Kowalska, known today throughout the world as St. Maria Faustina (1905-38), was designated by Our Lord Himself as the "Secretary" and "Apostle" of His Mercy. The Lord told her: "You will prepare the world for My final coming" (Diary, 429). Go Father Seraphim keep inspiring people like me.
