The diary captures the story of St. Faustina and her numerous personal encounters with Jesus, His Mother and celestial beings. Throughout her life as a Sister (a mostly difficult one), Jesus gave her daily messages about His mercy, justice, living well and the consequences of so doing(or not). Humility, holiness, child-like trust and denial of the will over His pervade Jesus' messages - they're His requirements. Mary, His Mother, appears as a gentle Consoler and source of wisdom to St. Faustina. A poignant vision of hers is when Jesus shows her a man who achieved great heights in his career, enjoyed the world's applause and honours but lost his soul because he neglected his wife and a life of holiness. St. Faustina writes that it is a terrible hour when when we see every sin in its nakedness and misery, which accompany us to God's judgement. She also teaches us the Divine Mercy prayer - a powerful tool for salvation at the hour when we face the Godhead.
Today when evil has so many acceptable social forms and boundaries have blurred significantly, St. Faustina's diary enlightens. Jesus commanded her to write it, and He himself reviewed and corrected its contents. He asked that she write every word of His for our benefit. Even after His Passion and Death, He channels His love and mercy for us yet again. Who but Jesus can love us that much?
A very spiritual book, easy to read and understand, takes place around 1930 to 1940. It's a diary of the daily events that happened through the life of Sister Maria Faustina. She was a uneducated young girl from Poland and was so devoted to Jesus and the Blessed Mother they appeared to her and gave her directions to start a new ministry of the Catholic Church to save the souls of all the people in the world. Jesus said if you say these prayers for a dying person Jesus will stand before the Father and forgive the soul of it's sins. A must read for everyone. I read a little every day and let the entries sink into my soul. It is hard to put down when you start reading it. Enjoy; I did and may God Bless You.
