Item description for Mercy Minutes: Daily Gems from the Diary of St. Maria Faustina Kowalski by George Kosicki...
"O life so dull and monotonous, how many treasures you contain! When I look at everything with the eyes of faith, no two hours are alike, and the dullness and monotony disappear” (Diary, 62).“O you small, everyday sacrifices, you are to me like wildflowers which I strew over the feet of my beloved Jesus. I sometimes compare these trifles to the heroic virtues, and that is because their enduring nature demands heroism” (Diary, 208). These gems and hundreds of others mined from St. Faustina’s Diary will transform your daily time of prayer and reflection into “Mercy Minutes.” The entry for each day provides a couple of brief passages from the Diary, following key themes in the spiritual life of St. Faustina. Themes covered include: Trust, Mercy, God’s Will, Union with God, Grace, the Eucharist, Confession, Daily Life, and the Present Moment. In Mercy Minutes, the daily entries are designed in an attractive format for daily prayer and printed on quality paper in a small prayerbook edition — all of which enhance the presentation of this book as a daily guide to prayer and reflection.

Beautiful portable "Divine Mercy" Mar 10, 2008
"Mercy Minutes" is a beautifully produced daily reader based on Sister's Diary of Divine Mercy. I really am enjoying it a lot; I can take it with me, and it leads me back to explore the diary in greater detail. As the forward says, these are among the greatest gems from the Diary. This allows the Diary to be distilled down for you, so that you get a kind of "best of" package from this book. This daily reader reminds me of the awesome power of the Diary. The production is excellent, with thick smooth pages and a very sturdy yet flexible cover. Highly recommended.
