One of Dominik’s friends laughed when he first saw this picture of young Dom kissing the original tomb of St. Faustina during a family trip to Krakow, Poland.
“That’s so not Dom!” he said.
The Petteys were also surprised that day in 2008, when he spontaneously offered this gesture of reverence to the saint of Divine Mercy on the convent grounds where she lived.
More on the fascinating story of St. Faustina here. The Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy still live in the place where the wondrous events of Christ’s message of Divine Mercy to St. Faustina first took place. They still pray and honor her original burial place today.
