Our Blessed Lord appeared to Sister Faustina and revealed His Divine Mercy for the world.Here are some excerpts of
conversations with the Lord from Blessed Faustina's diary.
* Paint an image according to the pattern you see with the signature: Jesus, I trust in you. I desire that this image be
venerated, first in your chapel, and [then] throughout the world.
* I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish. I also promise victory over [its] enemies already here on
earth, especially at the hour of death. I Myself will defend it as My own glory.
* The two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands
for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the depths of My tender mercy when My agonized
Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross.
* The Feast of Divine Mercy. I want this image to be solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter; that Sunday is to be the
Feast of Mercy. On that day, the depths of My Divine Mercy will be open to all. Whoever will go to confession and Holy
Communion on that day will receive complete forgiveness of sin and punishment. Mankind will not enjoy peace until it
returns to My Mercy.We should spread this devotion and make it also known to priests so that they may celebrate the Feast
of Divine Mercy in honor of Our Lord.
