Do you want to cultivate a heart of mercy for your family, friends, coworkers, and others you encounter each day? Are you curious about how the Divine Mercy Chaplet or St. Faustina Kowalska might help you find more joy and peace in life?

In Divine Mercy for Moms, bestselling Catholic authors and speakers Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet break open the history, practices, and prayers associated with the St. Faustina’s devotion, guiding busy moms like you to receive God’s message of Divine Mercy and pass it on through your words, deeds, and prayers.

Faehnle and Jaminet draw upon their own experiences to introduce you to St. Faustina and the five essential elements of her Divine Mercy message:

  • The image of the Merciful Jesus
  • The Feast of Divine Mercy
  • The Chaplet of Divine Mercy
  • The House of Mercy
  • Spreading the honor of Divine Mercy

Originating in the early twentieth century, the Divine Mercy devotion is one of the most celebrated of all Catholic devotions. In her famous Diary: Divine Mercy in My Soul, St. Faustina recorded a series of visions of Jesus where he revealed the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and promised that anything can be obtained with the prayer if it is compatible with his will. St. John Paul II formally established the Divine Mercy devotion and canonized Faustina in 2000. The Marians of the Immaculate Conception are dedicated to spreading the Divine Mercy devotion; the foreword for this book was written by Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC, author of Divine Mercy Explained and 33 Days to Morning Glory.

Perfect for personal or group study, Divine Mercy for Moms celebrates the infinite mercy of God and the role of Mary, the Mother of Mercy, in the lives of all believers. With heartwarming stories and practical advice, Faehnle and Jaminet reveal that mercy is not just a gift to be received in the confessional but a spiritual resource that strengthens those who extend themselves in word, deed, and prayer.

The book includes short daily reflections, a study guide that focuses on motherhood and Divine Mercy as explained by St. Faustina’s Diary, and prayers of mercy. The Divine Mercy for Moms website (divinemercyformoms.com) includes group study questions and videos for each chapter.

Praise

"Inspiring and practical."

"We used this book as part of our Lenten study group and it was a perfect combination of teaching us about Sr. Faustina's Divine Mercy message and calling us to action to implement acts of mercy in our daily lives as moms. Our group was so inspired by the message that we felt called to go beyond our intimate circle: We united with the prisoners waiting on death row through prayer and made encouragement cards.The book was inspiring, practical and the study guide is ideal for facilitating discussions."
