SAINT FAUSTINA AND THE DIVINE MERCY - A Catholic film on the life and mission of the Apostle of the Divine Mercy


If you have not already taken a look at our new film 'SAINT FAUSTINA AND THE DIVINE MERCY' it can be viewed through Mary's Dowry Productions online shops.
Although there are many important and thorough resources on the life of Saint Faustina and the Divine Mercy devotion available on DVD or in book form, we wanted to produce a film that would present Saint Faustina's mystical and supernatural encounters with Our Lord, the Holy Souls in Purgatory, the Devil and the many important things she recorded in her diary 'Divine Mercy in my Soul', in a way that would be informative, factual and detailed but also a prayerful and spiritual film encounter.

We were fortunate to be able to film footage of a Divine Mercy painting in progress for the film section explaining the significance and undertaking of the image of the Divine Mercy. 
We also recreated moments from the life of Saint Faustina including the visuals of her writing her diary, praying and walking and working.

Saint Faustina's life as a nun remains an inspiration in itself; her deep humility, her love of the Passion of Christ and her obedience to Our Lord's specific call for her; her simply yet profound prayer life, her many deeply Catholic devotions, her battle against her self will and weaknesses and her profound devotion to Our Lady.

Saint Faustina experienced the power of presenting the Passion of Christ to God as a means of deflecting the Justice humanity deserves for its countless offences and sins. She was given an additional tool to be prayed alongside the Holy Rosary, specifically for the dying and for the conversion of sinners, but effective for any intention - known as the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy.
An image of Our Lord with two rays flowing from his Sacred Heart was painted and offered to specific souls as a means of coming to Jesus with deep trust especially for our times.

Saint Faustina had a particular concern for the Holy Souls in Purgatory and for the dying. The emphasis on God's Mercy is especially relevant for people burdened with the great sins committed so easily in our culture, leading many back to confession through trust and a firm purpose of amendment and conversion.

Not only a biography of the first Saint to be canonized in the new Millennium, but a presentation of the main details of the Divine Mercy devotion and its significance for today, our film 'SAINT FAUSTINA AND THE DIVINE MERCY' runs for 40 minutes and is available on DVD worldwide through our online shops:

At the beginning of the 20th century, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ revealed to a polish nun the abyss of His Divine Mercy. The nun was Saint Faustina of the Blessed Sacrament. Beatified and Canonised by a fellow countryman and Saint, Pope John Paul II, Saint Faustina has left us a striking witness of hope and trust in the Divine Mercy. This new film looks at the life of Saint Faustina, her diary and the message of Divine Mercy, specifically at the Chaplet, the painting and the Feast of the Divine Mercy as given to humanity by Our Lord, especially for our times. It is a message of hope, a warning and a call to trust. This journey into early 20th century Poland also looks at prophesies given by Saint Faustina, her special devotions, how to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and the benefits and importance of trusting in Jesus under the title of the Divine Mercy.
