A presentation of Saint Faustina’s “Diary” in Latvian was held in Riga. The author of the translation from Polish is Father Andris Ševels, MIC.. In the Diary Sister Faustina described her spiritual life, which was exceptionally profound, culminating in union with God in mystical marriage with Jesus. She wrote how deeply she came to know the mystery of the Divine Mercy and how she contemplated it in her daily life. She also wrote about her struggle against the weakness of human nature and the difficulties she came up against in carrying out her prophetic mission. Above all, the Diary contains the message of God’s merciful love for humankind, which Sister Faustina was required to pass on to the Church and the world. This makes her Diary a special work, as the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, said, “the gospel of mercy written from the 20th-century perspective.”
It can also be found on the website of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy and in our Faustyna.pl mobile app for Android and iOS. The full text of the Diary is additionally available in Polish, English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Slovak and Russian. The Polish-language site also features a concordance, which allows you to quickly search for excerpts of the book.
