This handy little book contains hundreds of direct quotes and short sayings of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska, arranged according to the Christian virtues and other spiritual topics, allowing the reader to encounter her thoughts about particular aspects of the Christian life in a more organized manner.
The first fifteen chapters are arranged under virtues corresponding to the classical Fifteen Mysteries of the Rosary, making this ideal for anyone to use for daily spiritual reading and inspiration. Reading these sayings while reciting the Rosary is like praying it with St. Faustina, joining both prayer and the study of her writings in one great journey of advancing all the more in holiness and the love of God.
The visions of St. Maria Faustina Kowalska (1905 – 1938) are the basis for the modern Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy. Behind the extraordinary phenomena that marked her life was a deep humility and a burning desire to see all of mankind converted to God by the attraction and power of His mercy. More than the visions about the Divine Mercy, what comes through her Diary is the deep spirituality that eventually led her to the heights of sanctity, ultimately resulting in her canonization.
