I bought this for my wife and over the past three days she has not been able to read a word of it because I can't put it down. It is amazing to me how sold out St. Faustina was ( and still is ) to Jesus. Every time I read a passage I shake my head and realize that I have so much further to go in my life with God. I can't be a monk, but I can be much more devout than I am. I am understanding one thing from reading this very clearly, Divine Mercy is a consuming fire.
The Keyword Is "Mercy" Nov 20, 2006
Like Saint Therese Of Lisieux's autobiographical spiritual treasure "Story Of A Soul", Saint Faustina's diary, "DIVINE MERCY IN MY SOUL" is a life transforing read. . . in fact it is a read that will go on throughout your lifetime . . . not a one-time reading, but a book you will return to over and over again for inspiration and guidance, and prayerful meditation.
Sister Faustina writes of her spiritual experiences of everyday life encounters with everyday people, with family, with clergy, with others in her religious community . . . and with "the Lord" Himself.
In her writings we can see how her encounters with the Lord, in quite mystical ways, tranformed her own life and way of living and treating others. And in reading "her ways" we can begin to get hints as to how we also might live our faith among so many others who we encounter in our day-to-day living.
Of course the key word is "Mercy" . . . and not just "Mercy" . . . but "DIVINE MERCY" . . . and not a mercy somewhere far "out there" but "in my soul" . . . and therefore in YOUR soul as well, for that is where God dwells and lives and acts.
This diary is written in such a manner that one can read it at almost any section which catches our interest or answers a need of the moment. . . it also can serve as a "prayerbook" as it contains the words that Sister Faustina was told by the Lord that we should pray . . .and how to pray them. It also conatins the words of prayers that Saint Faustine herself prayed from the depths of her own soul . . . and these can be prayed by us as well . . . or help inspire our own thoughts and prayers to God.
This is a book more than worth having and reading and re-reading often. You will not exhaust the treasures which it contains and always find something new or a new depth of spirit as you read her words.
And Sister faustina will become a companion and fellow traveller with you along your pilgrimage and journet to God . . . to Divine Mercy and along the road of divine Mercy.

I always knew Jesus loved me, but I didn't realize the extend of his love and mercy he has for me... Every Christian needs to read this wonderful story about Saint Faustina's love and suffering,she had for Jesus and the world.

This book gives deep insight into the Nature of God and how deeply He really loves each and every one of us, especially in these times of so much turmoil and suffering.
