52 Weeks with Saint Faustina: A Year of Grace and Mercy
- Product Review (submitted on December 11, 2018):
- What a beautifully written book by Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle! It definitely is a labor of love inspired by Jesus in the Divine Mercy and his messenger, Saint Faustina. Just reading, in the preface, the story of how this book came to be demonstrates for us, the readers, how trusting in Jesus can lead us all to places we never expected to reach. The book is very well designed to enable us to utilize its message in our daily lives with a very helpful section that describes how to use the book as a weekly guide. Each chapter starts with a verse perhaps from Saint Faustina, or from the Scriptures, or from Jesus' messages to Saint Faustina; then it goes into a deeper explanation of the learnings to be gleaned; with an aspect of Divine Mercy to ponder; then suggestions for works of mercy based on the weekly reading; and finishing with a prayer of mercy for each day of that week - all very inspirational. Donna-Marie, in the preface, notes that she started working on this book in late 2017. It is so beautifully written that it's amazing that so much could be accomplished by Donna-Marie in such a short time - truly a labor of love From Donna-Marie, Saint Faustina, and Our Lord for her readers learn from and put into practice!
