St. Faustina, Doctor of the Church?

One of the graces I have received in my pastorate of the Divine Mercy Parish is the opportunity to read the Diary of St. Faustina: Divine Mercy in my Soul. I am really convinced that one day, she will be declared Doctor of the Church on account of this diary.

"In the Old Covenant I sent prophets wielding thunderbolts to My people. Today I am sending you with My mercy to the people of the whole world. I do not want to punish aching mankind but I desire to heal it, pressing it to My Merciful Heart. I use punishment when they themselves force Me to do so; My hand is reluctant to take hold of the sword of justice. Before the Day of Justice I am sending the Day of Mercy." (Diary, 1588.)

ZENIT - St. Faustina, Doctor of the Church?


  1. No offense meant but I read somewhere over the internet (from a Catholic group) that devotion to the Divine Mercy is something to avoid for the reason that the declarations which were believed to be said by our "Lord" to Sr. Faustina are inconsistent with what the Catholic Church has taught. Here's the link:

  2. Haynako, MHFM is so unreliable and ridiculous! Stay away everyone.
