By Fr. Edmund Szaniawski, MIC.
This book tells the story of Sister Faustina, a nun to whom God entrusted the message of Mercy. It is also about the presence of Satan in the life of this Saint; Satan the tempter, Satan who is full of hatred, "the enemy of Mercy".
The book tells the story about devotion to the Divine Mercy. Satan hates Divine Mercy because it takes away souls that were once in his hands. It not only informs us of the attacks of the enemy on our souls, but it also gives us the tools to oppose Satan, and it assures us of our victory.
Written by an exorcist priest of many long years who has a great understanding and has seen firsthand the tricks and snares of the enemy. Illustrations by world-famous Divine Mercy artist Tommy Canning. 40 pages.

This is a story about Saint Faustina - one of the greatest Christian mystics of the twentieth century - and her devotion to the Divine Mercy, which has become the fastest spreading religious devotion in the world.
This lavishly illustrated book is essentially a love story about God’s immense love for his people and the reciprocation of this love by the humble Polish nun declared a saint by Pope John Paul II.
In fulfilling the mission entrusted to her, Sister Faustina met with many obstacles, but she came through all her trials victoriously. The power of her message about God’s infinite mercy, forged in the fire of adversity, has accomplished seemingly impossible things. Although coming from the spiritual visions of just one person, devotion to the Divine Mercy has spread throughout the world like lightning, bringing to mind the parable of the mustard seed: from one small seed grew a great tree with many branches.
This book is also a story about Jesus Christ, Who is not remote and abstract, but Who enters human history, Who enters the events of our lives and forges relationships with us. The work of Jesus Christ is very real and so, too, is this book marked by reality.
To follow in the footsteps of Saint Faustina, the author and photographer moved from place to place— real places in eastern Europe such as Warsaw, Krakow, Plock and Vilnius. They encountered real people, such as Blessed Michal Sopocko and Blessed John Paul II. They recorded their observations and impressions in beautiful prose and gorgeous photographs in order to bring the realness of these places and people to as wide an audience as possible. IMPORT USA.

"What Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, has done in 33 Days to Morning Glory to promote true devotion to Mary, and what he has done in Consoling the Heart of Jesus to promote devotion to the Merciful and Sacred Heart of Jesus, he now does in You Did It to Me to promote the works of mercy.
Fr. Gaitley has a genius for bringing together the spiritual and corporal works of mercy under the umbrella of ‘The Five Scriptural Works of Mercy' that Jesus will use to judge us at the end of the world, Matthew 25:31-46. He then enriches these Scriptural texts on mercy with the practical insights of St. Pope John Paul II, St. Faustina, and Pope Francis.
He also has a very fertile imagination in bringing to life practical ways of implementing these works of mercy in our own individual lives, in our parish ministries as well as in the workplace, together with a plan of action for making these works of mercy concrete and livable.
If implemented, these concepts will transform the culture of any parish. The simple soul will be energized to do and the contemplative soul will be inspired to intercede. I could not recommend this book more highly."
