Brief description:

From 1926 to 1928, Sr. Faustina was a novice sister. Her novitiate teacher taught her to be humble and trust in God like a child, and she did not hold grudges against others, only praying to God about them. At the end of her first year of the novitiate, she experienced her 18-month Dark Night of the Soul. She felt abandoned and despaired, prayer and meditation were difficult, and temptations great. She was supported by her teacher, who told her that God had favoured her. Once, she received a vision of St. Thérèse de Lisieux after praying a Novena to her, and was told, “I suffered like you, but if you trust in Jesus, you will be a saint too.” In 1928, she took her first vows and left the novitiate. After the ceremony, she told her parents, “The one I took my vows to, is the son-in-law you have betrothed me to, Jesus Christ.”
