The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us all of us. And, He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. The Diary is truly a vehicle of grace for all who read it, for in reading it one can realize the truth that mankind will not have peace until it turns with trust to God?'s mercy, (Diary, 300).
Sr. Faustina was a young nun living in Cracow, Poland in the 1930 s. Despite having only 3-years of formal education, she recorded extraordinary revelations from Our Lord, which she compiled in notebooks known today as the best-selling Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska.In 1979, The Marians of the Immaculate Conception, lead by Fr. Seraphim Michalenko, were instrumental in bringing it in its rough typewritten form out of Poland. On April 30, 2000, Pope John Paul II canonized St. Faustina and called for the celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday.
