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 Random Deed of Mercy

Ice Cream and Burgers, for Whom?

I went to McDonald's and ordered some extra ice cream cones and hamburger. I didn't really know why I was ordering all this food. I was sharing the vanilla with my grandson and wanted to bring one to my mother while she waited for her appointment.

Something told me to give this ice cream to someone. I didn't know who till I walked back to the office where my mother was. There was some man who was nervously smoking outside. I asked him if he wanted the ice cream cone, and without hesitation he took it and ate it in less than a two minutes. Seeing that he appeared to be so hungry, I gave him the deluxe angus burger. He was extremely thankful, and he ate this just as fast.

For some reason, I had this calling to go with this food and bring it to this hungry man.
