    • A little over a year ago I read “Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska: Divine Mercy in My Soul.”
      The Divine Mercy Novena was given to St. Faustina by our Lord Jesus Christ with intentions for each day of the Novena, for each of the nine days of the Novena.
      Although it was intended for each of nine days you can, of course, say the entire Novena in one day or maybe one day an hour.
      The Diary is beautiful and if you get the chance you should read it.
      God bless
