Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska: Divine Mercy in My Soul by Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska

St Faustina is hailed as the “great apostle of Divine Mercy in our time”. The Diary chronicles the message that Jesus gave to the world through this humble nun. “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”. He also tells her to record His message of mercy in a diary: you are the secretary of my mercy. I have chosen you for that office in this and the next life”. She died in obscurity in 1938 and she was canonised in the year 2000 by Pope John Paul II.
