Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska

The Book That Sparked the Divine Mercy Movement

The Diary chronicles God's message given through St. Faustina to the world to turn to His mercy. In it, we are reminded to trust the Divine Mercy in Jesus and seek His forgiveness. And as Christ is merciful, so, too, are we instructed to be merciful to others. The message of Divine Mercy has become an integral part of Catholic faith, including the celebration of the Feast of Divine Mercy on the Sunday after Easter.

A Nurses' Aide Asks About the Rosary

One of our nurses' aides saw me giving one of our patients a wooden rosary. I saw him stop and quietly look, just listening.

He heard me tell the patient, as I handed the beads, that I will pray that with the Rosary, the Merciful Lord, through the intercession of Our Lady, would bring her peace, then I placed the rosary into her hand. After the patient was leaving our department for admission, the aide said to me, "I see your wooden beads everywhere. I used to pray. My grandfather would pray before every meal. If we ate nine times, we prayed nine times. I want to pray again."

The next day I tucked an extra set of rosary beads into my pouch, and looked for this young man. When I saw him, I smiled. He said, "You remembered."

"Of course," I told him, and I handed him the rosary. I told him I would pray the rosary beads would bring him prayer and peace. He immediately tucked the beads into his pocket.

So many little acts that seem to go unnoticed can mean so much. The Merciful Lord is always ready for even a faint "yes" to come from us. That is all He needs.

God Bless.
