Excerpts From St. Faustina's Diary


For Priests who spread devotion to Divine Mercy:

Jesus told St. Faustina - “Tell my priests that hardened sinners will crumble beneath their words when they speak about My unfathomable mercy, about the compassion I have for them in My Heart. To priests who will proclaim and extol My Mercy I will give wonderful power and I will anoint their words and I will touch the hearts of those to which they speak." (Diary, 1521)



Jesus said, “Tell souls that spread the honour of my Mercy I shield through their entire life and at the hour of death I will not be a Judge for them, but the Merciful Saviour.” (Diary, 1075)



St. Faustina said, "That beautiful soul who is spreading this work of Divine Mercy throughout the world, is by their humility, very pleasing to God." (Diary, 1083)



Jesus told St. Faustina --- “Write down these words, my daughter, Speak to the world about My Mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable Mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it will come the day of justice. While there is still time let them have recourse to the fount of My Mercy; let them profit from the blood and water which gushed forth for them." (Diary, 848)



Jesus said, “The graces of My Mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only, that is TRUST. The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive." (Diary, 1578)



Jesus said, “You (we) are to be a living reflection through LOVE and MERCY, be always merciful towards other people especially toward sinners.” (Diary, 1446)



Jesus directed St. Faustina, “Paint a picture according to the vision you see and with the signature, JESUS I TRUST IN YOU. (Diary, 47)



“I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish. I further promise to that soul victory over enemies here on earth especially at the hour of death. I myself shall defend that soul as my own glory…” (Diary, 48)



Jesus said, “The rays represent the Blood and Water which gushed forth from the depths of My Mercy when My agonizing Heart was pierced on the cross. The pale rays symbolize the water which cleanses and purifies the soul; the red rays represent the blood, which gives new life to the soul. These rays will shield the soul before the justice of My Father. Fortunate are those who live in this shelter, for the justice of God will not reach them there.” (Diary, 299)



Jesus told St. Faustina to write, “The greater the sinner, the greater the Mercy. Summon all those to confidence in the incomprehensible depth of My Mercy for I desire to Save All. The well of Mercy was opened wide with a lance on the Cross, for all souls. I do not exclude anyone.” (Diary, 1182)



Jesus speaks, “Know my daughter, that my Heart is Mercy itself. From this sea of Mercy, graces pour out upon the whole world. No souls that come to Me depart without being comforted. All misery vanishes in My Mercy and every grace, redemptive and sanctifying, stems from this source.” (Diary, 1777)



“Tell ailing mankind to draw close to My Merciful Heart and I will fill them with PEACE. Mankind will not find solace until it turns with confidence to My Mercy and Love.” (Diary, 699)
