This is the bestselling complete diary of St. Maria Faustina.
Shortly before the outbreak of World War II, a simple, uneducated, young Polish nun receives a special call. Jesus tells her, "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." Jesus 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."
These words of Jesus are found in the Diary of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, which chronicles Sr. Faustina's great experience of Divine Mercy in her soul and her mission to share that mercy with the world.

|Review:||I've read the dairy multiple times and continue to read it. It taught me the chaplet of divine mercy which I attempt to say every day. P.333 says "let all mankind recognize my unfathomable mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice." Either you believe these are the actual words of Christ or you do not. Either you act upon those words or you do not. As for me it is my hope and refuge. My greatest source of comfort outside the Eucharist.|
