Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska – Divine Mercy in My Soul

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.”
