Playing Faustina Changed Me

Playing Faustina Changed Me

After four years on tour and 313 performances as Saint Faustina, actress Maria Vargo has retired from the role.  Here are her reflections on portraying this saint:

Faustina was more than a show for me; it was a living, breathing prayer!   With each performance, I got to fall more deeply in love with Our Lord and offer him my desires and struggles, my joy and anger.  

In my life and in this performance, I’ve learned that Divine Mercy is life-changing, life-giving, and soul-saving.  I've seen it, I've heard about it and I've lived it.
