Author: St. Maria Fautina Kowalska
Edition: Paperback (Large- 5" x 7.75" or Small- 4" x 7")
Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, a simple, uneducated, young Polish nun receives a special call. Jesus tells her, "I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish mankind, but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My merciful Heart." Jesus also tells her to record His message of mercy in a diary: "You are the secretary of My mercy. I have chosen you for that office in this and the next life."
These words of Jesus are found in the Diary of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, which chronicles Sr. Faustina's great experience of Divine Mercy in her soul and her mission to share that mercy with the world.
Though she died in obscurity in 1938, Sr. Faustina was hailed by John Paul II as "the great apostle of Divine Mercy in our time." On April 30, 2000, the Pope canonized her as St. Faustina, saying that the message of Divine Mercy she shared is urgently needed at the dawn of the new millenium. More than 900,000 copies of the Diary have been sold worldwide.
How did St. Faustina grow in deeper trust and intimacy with Jesus? What promises did He make to her?
