Divine Mercy In My Soul: The Diary of Sister Maria Faustina Kowalska
This bestselling book that birthed the Divine Mercy movement, one of the fastest growing movements in world today
Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, a young uneducated 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. You are the secretary of My mercy."
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 Pope John Paul II as "the great apostle of Divine Mercy in our time", saying that the message of Divine Mercy she shared is urgently needed at the dawn of the new millennium. More than 1 million copies of the Diary have been sold worldwide.
