Helena Kowalska was born as the third child of a poor Polish family with ten children. At age fifteen, after only three years of school, she began to work to support the family. At the age of twenty she followed her calling to serve as a nun in the Catholic Church. She moved to Warsaw and visited several monasteries, but was rejected each time.
Eventually she was accepted on April 30, 1926 at the convent of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy with the name Sister Maria Faustina of the Blessed Sacrament.
