Sister Maria Faustina Kowalska, born in Poland and a member of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, received a message in the 1930s from Jesus, who asked her to spread the message of his Divine Mercy throughout the world. She was canonized by the church on April 30, 2000, the first saint of the new millennium.
Her diary, “Divine Mercy in My Soul,” has become the handbook to the Divine Mercy.
