During the 1930s, Jesus revealed the depths of His merciful love for mankind to a Polish nun, St. Faustina Kowalska. After her death in 1938 at age 33, Sister Faustina’s diary became a manual for the Divine Mercy devotion, and from it came a nine-day series of prayers intended to be offered beginning on Good Friday, in preparation for the Feast of Divine Mercy (the Second Sunday of Easter).

This novena was given by Jesus particularly to St. Faustina Kowalska (Diary, 1210-1229). For each of the nine days, our Lord gave her a different intention — a different group of souls — which He wanted her to bring to Him in prayer. The Lord Jesus promised: “By this novena, I will grant every possible grace to souls” (Diary, 796).

In 2000 ​Pope John Paul II canonized St. Faustina and established Divine Mercy Sunday for the universal Church.
