|St. Faustina's Convent in Poland|
Saturday evening the day before Divine Mercy Sunday I received an email from Scott who was already in Poland. Indeed the weather was as predicted cold and snowy. However, something wonderful happened. Something for which Scott was deeply grateful. Scott who is a veteran tour guide had brought his group to the Divine Mercy Shrine. Just at that moment of their visit an old nun appeared. A women Scott knew from years earlier. She was visiting as well. She recognized Scott and invited his group into St. Faustina's convent for lunch. She also told them that during Divine Mercy Sunday they were welcome to go into the convent to get warm. As Divine Mercy Sunday usually draws several hundred thousand people to this place and participating in this event usually requires being outside for 6 hours with no shelter this gift was a true God send. When I emailed Scott that all the children were praying for his group he responded with assurance that these were indeed prayers answered.

Thank you Lord for always providing for us in ways we might never have anticipated with such beauty and care. Amen.
