“Encounter in Vilnius. Notes of Saint Faustina Kowalska and Blessed Michał Sopoćko about Divine Mercy”.
This book presents a compilation of texts from the writings of two apostles of Divine Mercy, saint Faustina Kowalska and her spiritual director blessed Michał Sopoćko. It includes fragments from their diaries, notes about their encounter in Vilnius and work for spreading the message of Divine Mercy. During the time when saint Faustina lived in Vilnius, the Divine Mercy image was painted, the prayer of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy was written down, and the Sunday of Divine Mercy was celebrated for the first time. In this city, blessed father Sopoćko helped the formation of what is now the Congregation of the Sisters of Merciful Jesus. All these events made up the basis of devotion to the Divine Mercy.
