The following report comes to us from virtual school student Roberta in Chicago, IL:

Since Easter was coming up, I decided to use that as an excuse to give an Easter present to my dialysis technician “Catherine”, who is a lukewarm Catholic. I wrote her a 3-page letter sharing my personal testimony with her about redemptive suffering and how I discovered the incredible value of suffering when I got sick with kidney disease. I shared with her about how I changed from living a very worldly life to one that is focused on eternal life and growing closer to God. I revealed to her that I went to Confession for the first time in 7 years and how FREE I felt afterwards. I told her that I surrendered everything to God, especially my body, and I accepted whatever cross God wanted me to carry. I united my cross with Jesus’ cross and that has brought me into an intimate relationship with Christ. I included a Miraculous Medal and a pocket-sized Divine Mercy card with my letter and placed everything inside an Easter card. Then along with that, I gave her a nicely framed large picture of the Divine Mercy image.

When she opened the gift, she was so happy and touched. She read my letter over Easter weekend and when I saw her on Easter Monday, she told me that my letter affected her “in a different way.” She said, “it made me think.” She also told me that she had her 13-year-old son bless the Divine Mercy image, because he wants to become a priest someday. He loved the image too and she told me that she already has a place for the framed Divine Mercy at her new apartment when she moves next month. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Praised be Jesus Christ!
