I first read Saint Faustina's book Diary: Divine Mercy in My Soul when she was plain old Sister Faustina, and a rather daunting twentieth-century mystic. The book freaked me out in several places, especially the locutions from Jesus and the visions of the afterlife. I was drawn to the book, but it frightened me, when I had just come back to the Church after a period of atheism. This was the mid-1980's also, when visionaries, mystics and classic Catholic spirituality was on the wane in the United States. Devotional books as intense as Saint Faustina's had given way to more careful, distanced spirituality. So I put the book away.

I came back to it several times over the years, and always found much to intrigue, inspire and challenge me. I found it again in a Eucharistic Adoration chapel a few months ago, and bought it for myself after using it to great effect in prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament exposed. At this point, in my sixth decade of life, with classic Catholicism in full bloom wherever I look, I am finding it a wonderful book to deepen my knowledge of and relationship with Christ. I highly recommend it to Christians, especially Catholics, of all ages. When I first picked the book up in the 80's, Eucharistic Adoration was a dream from the past, as were novenas, the rosary, Benediction, and other devotions and practices of my childhood. Today's younger Catholics are fortunate to once again have ready access to all of the traditional and classic modes of prayer and devotion that have nourished the Catholic faithful over the centuries. This book was made for the ages -- and the Divine Mercy is now coming into Its own.

It is almost impossible to fully communicate the absolute importance of the Diary of Saint Faustina. It is possibly one of the most important messages Christ has given to mankind through one of His beloved mystics. It takes time to fully understand the message but "blessed is he who ponders the laws of God day and night". If you know in your heart who Jesus is, then this book is essential reading for you.

This simple diary gives clear instructions for salvation in these dire times. It isn't a "feel good" or "nice" or "interesting" book. It relates the true life experiences of St. Faustina's relationship to Jesus Christ in light of our dire times. Her story was fulfilled when she was canonized as a saint by JPII. The feast of Mercy is the first Sunday after Easter, it was established by His HOliness, John Paul II. Prophecy fulfilled! Other interpretations do nothing to describe the great grace granted by Jesus if a person approaches the fount of Mercy through the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. I encourage all who read this to explore and seek the truth and act upon the words of St. Faustina and follow the path to Medjugorje. The Holy Spirit will do the rest. God Bless all who read this.

This is my favorite book, which says a lot considering how much I read. St. Faustyna's recordings of the words of Christ, as well as her own, will bring you closer to our Lord. Do not hesitate to buy this book!

I've been praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy on and off for years, and I've found this prayer to be extremely powerful. That said, the Diary of St. Faustina helped me to appreciate Jesus Christ, love Him better. and learn the history of this chaplet. Because of her personal relationship with Jesus and with God, it helped me to understand my own journey with Christ more clearly.

Even though St. Faustina, who was chosen to write about Divine Mercy by Jesus, said she wasn't trained as a writer. But to me, her soulful words are some of the most beautiful and powerful I've ever read. Nearly every passage was filled with gems of wisdom. My highlighter is constantly busy while I read her diary. Within her notebooks, there are even passages that read like prayers.

Her book is also helping me with my own personal journey back to Christ. St. Faustina spoke vividly about the trials and tribulations she underwent. I'm not trying to be sadistic, but I liked reading about them, because it taught me a great deal how to manage my own periods of sadness and spiritual struggles. During St. Faustina's darkest periods of suffering, she didn't lose her equilibrium by cultivating silence and her inner peace. She never lost her love or respect for God by blaspheming Him. She used prayer and silence as an effective weapon to disarm all problems.

Some critics have said St. Faustina spoke with a childlike simplicity. But, I guess the purest love is expressed in a similar fashion. She was extremely humble always submitting her will to that of God's. One of my favorite pages in her diary was when she wrote down the words "My Will," on one page, then crossed the words out with a huge "X" and on an opposite page, placed on an opposite page how she'd only submit to God's will.

This is a wonderful book. I read it as a non-denominational Christian pastor. The book is very enlightening. I learned much from this book. Also, I was interested to learn about St. Faustina's experiences. Very, very, interesting, indeed! I was interested to realize that the words given by God many years ago to St. Faustina today still apply. God is a loving, merciful God, who wants to be merciful to mankind and spare him of the coming Justice of God if he will only repent.
