In the1930's Sister
Faustina received message of mercy from Jesus that she was told to
spread throughout the world, a message of God's mercy to each person
individually, and for humanity as a whole. Jesus asked that a picture
be painted of him with the inscription: “Jesus I Trust in You.”
She was asked to be a model of mercy to others, to live her entire
life, in imitation of Christ as a sacrifice. She commissioned this
painting in 1935, showing a red and a white light shining from
Christ's Sacred Heart.
