2000, Pope John Paul II canonized the great 20th century visionary of
Divine Mercy, Sister Faustina Kowalska, and proclaimed the Sunday
after Easter to be celebrated annually as Divine Mercy Sunday. In
2006, Pope Benedict stressed that "Divine Mercy is not a
secondary devotion, but an integral
Christian faith and prayer." Now Pope Francis has proclaimed an
Year of Mercy,

author Vinny Flynn continues his popular "7 Secrets" series
with a book that brings him back to his roots. Vinny was one of the
original editors of the official English edition of the actual Diary
of St. Faustina,
and he has written and edited a vast number of the Divine Mercy
materials that are used today.
his "secrets" of Divine Mercy, Vinny shows how Divine Mercy
is not just another worthy "private devotion"; it is the
devotion, the umbrella devotion over everything else. Every other
devotion in the Church, every ritual, every activity, every teaching

understand and enter into Divine Mercy. He shows us how everything in
our lives can become more meaningful, more powerful, more
life-changing once we really embrace the gift of Divine Mercy — the

reveal the heart of Divine Mercy, but to offer you an invitation and
a road map so that this mercy can transform your life.

you're curious to learn more about it, this book is perfect for you.

live lives shaped by mercy", and benefit greatly from the "Year
