Overview

The Diary is a dramatic telling of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska's amazing encounter with The Divine Mercy—our Lord Jesus Christ. On Mercy Sunday 2006, Pope Benedict XVI said, "The mystery of the merciful love of God was the center of the pontificate of my venerable predecessor [Pope John Paul II] ... evidencing that the devotion to Divine Mercy is not a secondary, but an integral dimension of a Christian's faith and prayer." The Diary chronicles God's invitation to turn to His mercy as a source of hope for the world. In it, we are reminded to trust in the Divine Mercy of Jesus and seek His forgiveness. And as Christ is merciful, so, too, are we instructed to be merciful to others. The message of Divine Mercy has become an integral part of Catholic faith, including the celebration of the Feast of Divine Mercy on the Sunday after Easter as Jesus had requested of St. Faustina. The Diary is truly a book that inspires people to turn with trust to Jesus and guides the reader through an intimate journey of prayer and devotion that ultimately leads to God's mercy.

What People are saying about this

Pope John Paul II
"I wish solemnly to entrust the world to Divine Mercy. I do so with the burning desire that the message of God's merciful love, proclaimed here through St. Faustina, may be made known to all peoples of the earth and fill their hearts with hope."

Meet the Author

Sr. Faustina was a young nun living in Cracow, Poland in the 1930's. Despite having only 3-years of formal education, she recorded extraordinary revelations from Our Lord, which she compiled in notebooks—known today as the best-selling Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska. In 1979, The Marians of the Immaculate Conception, lead by Fr. Seraphim Michalenko, were instrumental in bringing it—in its rough typewritten form —out of Poland. On April 30, 2000, Pope John Paul II canonized St. Faustina and called for the celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday.

A book that makes reading it, like partaking in the savoring of a divine 7 course meal. Each word, like each mouthful, is savored and relished. It cannot be rushed or unappreciated, for it is truely divine inspiration.

This was the most beautiful and memorable book I have ever read next to the Bible. I made a study of St.Faustina's book and return to it often to help solve life situations. It is miraculous! Happy Feast day St. Faustina.

This women is a true enlightened being, enlightened by the Most High Lord Jesus Christ. Truly St. Faustian is continuing the spread of the 2000 year old revolution started by Jesus of Agape. This book is the best book I've ever read next to the Bible. It truly brings the true meaning of, "I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. "A little while and you will no longer see me, and again a little while later and you will see me." John 16: 13-16. This book takes the Spirit of the Bible and translates it for our everyday lives.

This diary provides deep insight into the relationship between this nun and her beloved Jesus. I am impressed with the beautiful writing of a person who had very little education and served out her life as a scullery maid in a convent. I am buying more copies of this book to share with others.
