"Love and Mercy" the film that reveals shocking facts about St. Faustina Kowalska
World Youth Day is full of surprises, so that young people from all over the world can have an authentic experience of faith. Along with that, movies are also a valuable tool.
For this reason, a special film, “Love and Mercy,” premiered exclusively at WYD.
"I hope that this film will held each of us to come to know the true image of God."
It is a docudrama that tells the story of St. Faustina Kowalska's life and the visions she had about Christ and the Divine Mercy.
The film addresses this miracle from the scientific point of view, interspersing testimonies of experts with the recreation of the life of the saint. It reveals unknown facts and recently discovered secrets about her visions. For example, it reveals unknown letters from her confessor, Fr. Michał Sopoćko, who asked St. Faustina to write her visions in a diary.
From these visions, the devotion for Divine Mercy began. It sparked a celebration that John Paul II instituted in 2000 on the same day of the canonization of St. Faustina, the so-called apostle of Divine Mercy.
This movie, directed by Michal Kondrat, will be released in theaters all over the world the week of the Feast of the Divine Mercy.
