St. Faustina Chapel

To the right of the altar is the chapel dedicated to St. Maria Faustina Kowalska. Within the kneeler located in this chapel is a piece of the “basal phalanx” of one of St. Faustina’s (1905-1938) big toes. The larger piece of the relic remains in a reliquary within the chapel. The Marians decided to separate this small piece of the relic to make it more accessible to the many pilgrims who wish to venerate it. Every day at the Shrine, pilgrims pray to St. Faustina, who wrote that her mission would continue after her death. “Poor earth, I will not forget you,” she wrote before her death. “Although I feel that I will be immediately drowned in God as in an ocean of happiness, that will not be an obstacle to my returning to earth to encourage souls and incite them to trust in God’s mercy. Indeed, this immersion in God will give me the possibility of boundless action” (Diary of St. Faustina, 1582).
