Q. Isn't the Divine Mercy devotion based primarily on private revelations given to St. Faustina?

A. The Divine Mercy devotion is based primarily on the message of God's mercy found in Scripture and in Sacred Tradition. The revelations given to St. Faustina merely amplify, clarify, and celebrate the scriptural, traditional faith of the Church in the merciful love of God. There is nothing brand-new here, just a clearer focus on the very heart of the Catholic Faith the merciful love of God.
