The Power of the Divine Mercy Image

This Sunday, April 11, is Divine Mercy Sunday. It is the day Our Lord promised to open the floodgates of His mercy upon the whole world. But did you know there are special promises connected to the image of Divine Mercy as well?

Recently on The Drew Mariani Show, Drew explained the history and power of the Divine Mercy image, and why it is needed today more than ever.

If you don’t know the backstory of the Divine Mercy image, Drew explained, “St. Faustina was in the convent, and she suffered a lot. But one night, on February 22, 1931, she was in the upper room of her convent, deep in prayer, and Jesus Christ appeared to her. The Lord physically appeared to her. It was a visit. And He came bearing the wounds of the crucifixion.”

“In the vision, she saw Him clothed in white. Dazzling bright white. And He had His right hand up in blessing and His left hand was touching the part of His dazzling garment near His heart. Where He touched, these beautiful rays poured forth. One was red and one was a pale color.”

But St. Faustina was not only given a vision of Jesus, she was given a message from Him for the whole world. Drew said, “This is why this image is so powerful. He says, ‘I am offering people a vessel from which they are to keep coming for graces, to this fountain of mercy.’ And that vessel is this image.”

The Lord told St. Faustina, “By means of this image, I will grant many graces to souls, so let them have access to it.”

Though this image is well-known to many Catholics, the promises the Lord made to those who venerate this image are not. But in Drew’s new book Divine Mercy he lays out the history of the image, the promises connected to it, and the stories of miracles that have taken place through the veneration of this Divine Mercy image.

“I want you to have it,” Drew told listeners. “You deserve it, you need it, you should have it, you should get this image for your children, you should get this image for your office or car.”

To help as many people as possible receive the Divine Mercy image, everyone who reserves a FREE copy of Divine Mercy by Drew Mariani will also receive a removable Divine Mercy image inside the book. This image can then be placed in your home, your car, your office, or anywhere you can see it and reflect on God’s unfathomable mercy.

“The Lord promised that the soul who venerates this image will not perish,” Drew said. “He promised victories over enemies. The Lord said that for those who venerate this image, I Myself will defend them as My own glory. There is a spiritual protection that comes with this image. There is a temporal protection that comes with this image.”

“Your going to get the history behind the image, you’re going to get stories like people saved from a bombing in World War II, people saved from concentration camps, people saved from a superstorm,” Drew told listeners. “I go into all of this and unfold for you not only the promise that Jesus has given you through St. Faustina, but why this image today is needed more than ever.”
