    Question 83: When was the last time in recorded history that God or Jesus talked to a person here on earth? Has God or Jesus talked to anybody recently?

    Answer. The last time Jesus appeared in “recorded history” was on the fortieth day after Easter Sunday, when He ascended into heaven, according to Mark 16:19, Luke 24:51, and Acts 1:2.

Over the years, there have been many people who claimed to see Jesus and/or hear Him speak. The vast majority of these assertions cannot be substantiated.

 

One such claim, which has been thoroughly investigated and approved by the Catholic Church, occurred on February 22, 1931, when Jesus appeared to a young religious nun by the name of Sister Faustina (Helen Kowalska).

 

Sister Faustina came from a very poor family that had struggled hard on their little farm during the terrible years of WWI. Sister had had only three years of very simple education. Hers were the humblest of tasks in the convent, usually in the kitchen or the vegetable garden, or as a porter. To her, Jesus brought a wonderful message about the merciful love of God towards every human being, even the greatest sinner. He also gave her a mission - to tell the world that He is Mercy itself, and that before He returns as a just Judge, He is coming as a merciful Savior. This message is now being spread throughout the world.

 

The Church canonized Faustina on April 30, 2000; and her diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul, has become the handbook for devotion to Jesus.

Sister Faustina died in Cracow, Poland, in the odor of sanctity on October 5, 1938 at the age of 33. She was beatified on April 18, 1993 and has since been known as Saint Faustina. The one man primarily responsible for this decision was Karol Cardinal Wojtyla, the Archbishop of Sr. Faustina's home diocese of Cracow, later Pope John Paul II.

 

On the 15th of April 1978, the Holy See, after a thorough examination approved and permitted the devotion and celebrates Mercy Sunday on the Sunday after Easter. For further information on this issue go to: http://marian.org/divinemercy/faustina/index.html
