ANSWER:  It contains everything the Lord Jesus told her.


 St. Faustina (1905-1938 A.D.) and her diary:

It was through this Polish nun that Jesus communicated his message of Divine Mercy.

The Lord said to her: “know that your task is to write down everything that I make known to you about My mercy, for the benefit of those who by reading these things will be comforted in their souls and will have the courage to approach Me” (Diary 1693)


One of the things the Lord delivered to her was the Divine Mercy chaplet, which involves special prayers said on rosary beads. For those who say this prayer, the Lord promises to accomplish anything that is compatible with His will.


In fact, the Lord made some other phenomenally generous promises concerning this chaplet. Here are his exact words to St. Faustina, who was canonized a saint by Pope John Paul II in 2000:

Jesus said to the nun:

“Say unceasingly the Divine Mercy Chaplet that I have taught you. Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death. Priests will recommend it to sinners as their last hope of salvation. Even if there were a sinner most hardened, if he were to recite this chaplet only once, he would receive grace from My infinite mercy. I desire to grant unimaginable graces to those souls who trust in My mercy.

1541 My daughter, encourage souls to say the Divine Mercy Chaplet which I have given to you. It pleases Me to grant everything they ask of Me by saying the chaplet. When hardened sinners say it, I will fill their souls with peace, and the hour of their death will be a happy one.

1541 Write that when they say this Divine Mercy Chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between My Father and the dying person, not as the just Judge but as a merciful Saviour.

Through the chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My Will. (Source: St. Faustina’s diary)



Through the nun, the Lord established Divine Mercy Sunday on the Sunday after Easter.


Go to Divine Mercy Mass! It's the Sunday after Easter. As a special gift to those who go to Confession on this day and to a special Divine Mercy Mass, the Lord not only forgives him or her, but also  removes all punishment the person has stored up for himself or herself in purgatory. The person starts with a clean slate. The only requirement is that the person is truly sorry for all their sins and is truly committed to avoiding all sin, including all venial sin. Of course, the person will probably fail. But the important thing is that the person attempts to follow Jesus with his or her whole heart.


I, personally, have attended Divine Mercy Mass thrice at St. Norbert’s Church in Paoli, Pa.  and greatly appreciate all the gifts that go along with it, especially the elimination of all purgatory time owed to date.


Sister Mary Faustina Kowalska offered herself as a sacrifice, taking on the sufferings of many of her neighbors. Her sufferings resulted in many sinners being brought to the grace of conversion won by Jesus.
