The Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska - Deluxe Burgundy Leather
On page after page, the Diary of St. Faustina proclaims the message of God's merciful love as the very heart of the Gospel. It was not a new teaching, of course: just a new expression and a clear focus on the very center of the Catholic Faith: the loving kindness and compassion of God. In private revelations recorded in her diary, Jesus had spoken to her words such as these (entries 1074, 699, 1485, 1578):
I am love and mercy itself. ... Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. ... My mercy is greater than your sins, and those of the entire world. ... I let My Sacred Heart be pierced with a lance, thus opening wide the source of mercy for you. Come then with trust to draw graces from this fountain. ... The graces of My mercy are drawn by the means of one vessel only, and that is trust. The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive.
Sr. Faustina's devotional life was driven by her sincere desire to put her complete trust in the Lord's mercy in every aspect of life. For her, Jesus was "Mercy Incarnate," and the Lord had given her a mission: to proclaim this message of The Divine Mercy throughout the world, especially by the spread of the Image of Mercy, and the celebration of the Feast of Mercy. Moreover, this message and devotion was to be a fresh call to her, and to all people, to be merciful to one another.
