Love and Mercy
Jesus, I trust in you.
“For me that movie is just like ‘The Passion of the Christ.’ It was the second time in our life when we were going out of the cinema in silence. We could hear our steps and sniffing og the people. Nobody wanted to show that it was him who was crying. There are a lot of religious movies, but only ‘The Passion of the Christ’ and ‘Love and Mercy’ touched me deeply.”
ABOUT THE FILM
“Love and Mercy: Faustina”, a docudrama on Divine Mercy and the mission of Sr. Faustina Kowalska, reveals previously unknown facts and recently disclosed documents that shed new light on the truth of the Divine Mercy message.
As many know, the Divine Mercy is a devotion to Jesus Christ associated with the apparitions of Jesus to Sr. Faustina in Poland in the 1930s. Jesus urged Sr. Faustina to paint an image according to the pattern that she had seen, and requested to have the image venerated, first in the sisters’ chapel, and then throughout the world. The venerated image under this Christological title refers to what Sr. Faustina’s diary describes as “God’s loving mercy” towards all people, especially for sinners. Scientific analysis included in the film indicates that Sr. Faustina indeed saw the Lord Jesus. Cooperating with the Kondrat-Media team, a group of experts found letters of Fr. Michał Sopoćko (Sr. Faustina’s confessor), and, while browsing forgotten archives, they found additional previously unknown documents.
To a large extent, “Love and Mercy: Faustina” can contribute to fulfilling Jesus’ promise that “the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming” will come from Poland (Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, 1732).
