The History of The Divine Mercy Chaplet
The Divine Mercy Chaplet was given to a Polish nun, Sister Faustina Kowalska, who lived in the first half of the 20th century. At this time, the world was recovering from WWI and on the verge of WWII. It was a time of tremendous proliferation of immortally and degradation.
As a sister of Our Lady of Mercy, St. Faustina spent her entire religious life pleading with the Lord for His mercy on behalf of the needy souls. In her Diary, Divine Mercy in My Soul, she keeps a record of the Lord’s conversations with her, (this book is well worth reading and re-reading) He ask her not to hold back divine justice any longer. Of course she could not comply with such a request. She died the very night the first shot was fired in WWII. The Lord in His great mercy gave the world this devotion, for the salvation of souls through the faithful hands of St. Faustina, and later her countryman, Pope John Paul II.
This devotion is extraordinary affective for the conversion of the dying and those who have hardened their hearts against God, up until the last moments of their lives. It is also great recourse for the relief of the suffering victims, caught in the catastrophic disasters such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, bombings and mass shootings.
I world is getting darker and God’s Mercy is our only hope!
