St. Stanislaus (1030-1079)
Anyone who reads the history of Eastern Europe cannot help but chance on the
name of Stanislaus, the saintly but tragic bishop of Kraków, patron of
Poland. He is remembered with Saints Thomas More and Thomas Becket for
vigorous opposition to the evils of an unjust government. Born in Szczepanow
near Kraków on July 26, 1030, he was ordained a priest after being educated
in the cathedral schools of Gniezno, then capital of Poland, and at Paris.
He was appointed preacher and archdeacon to the bishop of Kraków, where his
eloquence and example brought about real conversion in many of his
penitents, both clergy and laity. He became bishop of Kraków in 1072.

When I caught sight of him, I fell down at his feet as though dead. He
touched me with his right hand and said, ?Do not be afraid. I am the first
and the last, the one who lives. Once I was dead, but now I am alive forever
and ever. ~Revelation 1:9-11a, 12-13, 17-19

Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, ?Peace be with you.?
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples
rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, ?Peace be with
you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.? ~John 20:19-31

Jesus died and rose and offers us Divine Mercy. He tells us not to be
afraid.  As he said to His disciples three times in our Gospel today he also
says to us, "Peace be with you."  It's a peace that can be with us in good
times and bad, in happiness and wholeness and in loss and sickness and
trouble.  God is with us always to offer us His enduring peace!

I pray that I may know Divine Mercy.  I pray that I may live in peace and
know the Lord's presence with me no matter what life brings.
