Fr. Seraphim Michalenko, MIC, is a well-known speaker at Divine Mercy retreats and conferences, and has also become a familiar face on EWTN on instructive and inspirational programs dealing with The Divine Mercy Message and Devotion. In 1979, convinced of the importance of the Diary, the Marians were instrumental in bringing it - in its rough typewritten form - out of Poland. Father
Seraphim who, for over 20 years, was Vice-Postulator for North America for the Canonization Cause of Sister Maria Faustina Kowalska, carefully reviewed the English translation. He was also a witness to the first miracle attributed to Saint Faustina's intercession that opened the way for her Beatification in 1993.
