Your Task

Our Lord Speaks:

“I am giving you the task to write down everything that I make known to you about my mercy. For the benefit of those who by reading these things will be comforted in their souls and will have the courage to approach Me. I, therefore want you to devote all your free moments to writing.” (Diary 1693) “...You are the secretary of My mercy. I have chosen you for that office in this life and the next life” (Diary 1605) “...In the old covenant I sent prophets wielding thunderbolts to my people. Today I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish aching mankind but I desire to heal it pressing it to My merciful heart...” (Diary 1588) “...I demand that you devote all your free moments to writing about My goodness and mercy. It is your office and your assignment throughout your life to continue to make known to souls the great mercy I have for them and to exhort them to trust in My bottomless mercy” (Diary 1567) “My daughter; tell souls that I am giving them My mercy as a defense. I, Myself, am fighting for them and am bearing the just anger of My Father.” (Diary 1516)

Although Saint Faustina's mission was to be a nun and to be obedient to her superiors, Our Lord also called her to a special mission: she was to be His apostle of Divine Mercy, to spread His mercy to the whole world by her example, suffering, obedience, and recording everything in a diary. In 1934, Saint Faustina was told by her confessor, Fr. Sopocko, to write everything in a diary of her interior experiences with Jesus. Fr Sopocko did not have the time to listen to these lengthy confessions of Saint Faustina.

In addition to her confessor asking her to write everything down, many places in the diary she is commanded by Jesus to write.

Our Lord Speaks:

“...My daughter, you do not live for yourself but for souls. Write for their benefit”

(Diary 895).

“...Your task is to write down everything that I make known to you about My mercy...”(Diary 895).
