Jesus, I trust in you.

A simple yet profound prayer, one at the heart of The Divine Mercy devotion.

‘The message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy. Even before her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had begun to spread.

‘The message of mercy is that God loves us — all of us — no matter how great our sins. He wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy.’ (Click here to read more about The Divine Mercy devotion.)
Father Anthony Buœ, CR, pastor of St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish in Chicago — which in 2007 was designated as the Sanctuary of The Divine Mercy (in Chicago) — is an ardent proponent of the powerful Divine Mercy devotion.

Father Buœ has authored a book titled A Mother’s Plea: Lifting the Veil in Sanctuary. Below is the text of the book’s preface. I thank Father for allowing me to reprint this excerpt. Click here to purchase a copy of the book.
