Rich artwork and charming rhyme bring the true story of beloved Saint Faustina and the message of Divine Mercy alive for children of all ages.

Saint Faustina began her life as little Helena Kowalska. She grew up in a one-room farmhouse and dreamed of becoming a nun, facing rejection and hardship as she sought to love Jesus with her whole heart.

She recorded a diary of her spiritual adventures and went on to boldly share Jesus’s message of Divine Mercy with the whole world. Walk alongside this humble, sweet nun as she dedicates her life to joyfully serving God, and learn how you, too, can honor Jesus and lovingly place your trust in Him.

    I simply loved this book. Bought it to read to my Grandchildren and they thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Charming story, told in rhyming prose, explaining St. Faustina;s struggles and total devotion to Jesus and her mission of spreading the message of His Divine Mercy. The ;Questions for family discussion; at the end were a nice surprise and are a great way to engage the young reader! Illustrations are beautiful as well. The message is so important that I plan on making this book a gift to several of my family members.

    What a Saintly Book!

    Posted by Jennifer S. on May 24th 2023

    After recently finishing Saint Faustina;s Diary myself, I fell deeply in love with her, her life, and her mission. When I saw this book, I knew I had to have a copy to be able to share and introduce to my little children about my new favorite saint at their level. The book is beautifully written in rhyming style and beautifully illustrated, and simple enough for them to grasp. It reminded me of so many parts I had read in her diary - absolutely lovely. Love this book.

    Beautiful writing and illustrations!

    Posted by Angela on May 24th 2023

    This is such a sweet book on the life of St. Faustina, for children as well as adults! The poetic writing reminds me of that of the Madeline books, if you;re familiar and a fan, you;ll love this writing style! The art is lovely and captures the tone of the story perfectly. Even the texture of the book;s cover is one a book lover would notice and enjoy! Bonus discussion questions in the back are a great added benefit to engage in conversation as well as retain information. I'velearned things myself that I didn;t know prior to reading this sweet story. Anyone interested in or with a special devotion to St. Faustina will surely love this book!

    The lovely illustrations and the poetic lines in this book tell so much about the life of St. Faustina and the Divine Mercy in very few words.
