The Image of Divine Mercy

Image of the Merciful JesusOn February 22, 1931, Jesus revealed himself to Sister Faustina in a cell in the convent in Plock (Poland) and ordered her to paint an image, showing her the pattern of the image in a vision.

“Paint an image according to the pattern you see, with the signature: Jesus, I trust in You. I desire that this image be venerated, first in your chapel, and then throughout the world. I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish. I also promise victory over its enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. (...) I want this image, which you will paint with a brush, to be solemnly blessed on the first Sunday after Easter; That Sunday is to be the Feast of Mercy. I desire that priests proclaim this great mercy of Mine towards souls of sinners” (Diary, 47-49).

"I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep on coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this image with the inscription: Jesus, I trust in You." (Diary, 327)

"By means of this Image I shall be granting many graces, so let every soul have access to it" (Diary, 570).
