Divine Mercy devotion

Saint Faustina Kowalska, a young Polish nun, spread the special devotion in the 1930s. The message is a reminder of God’s mercy and forgiveness. It calls people to a deeper understanding that God’s love is unlimited and available to everyone — especially the greatest sinners.

The message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy is based on the writings of St Faustina, who in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy.
