Dr. Ken says: "The Diary of St. Faustina is one of the best books I've ever read. She is one of the great Christian mystics. When I got this book, I read it every chance I had until I finished it: at home, in airports, on the plane, in hotels, and so on."
St. Faustina was a Polish born nun. She was asked to become the apostle and secretary of God's mercy, a model of how to be merciful to others, and an instrument for reemphasizing God's plan of mercy for the world. Her entire life, in imitation of Christ's, was to be a sacrifice - a life lived for others. She wrote and suffered in secret, with only her spiritual director and some of her superiors aware that anything special was taking place in her life.
Saint of the Day – Guess who…………………St Faustina Kowalska – yes! The Saint of Divine Mercy! The message of mercy that Sister Faustina received is now being spread throughout the world; her diary, Divine Mercy in my Soul, has become the handbook for devotion to the Divine Mercy.
St.Faustina At a time when some Catholics had an image of God as such a strict judge that they might be tempted to despair about the possibility of being forgiven,“I do not want to punish aching mankind,” he once told St. Maria Faustina, “but I desire to heal it, pressing it to my merciful heart” (Diary 1588). The two rays emanating from Christ's heart, she said, represent the blood and water poured out after Jesus' death.
