A vital part of the treasury of the Divine Mercy message and devotion, this edition of God is Mercy, a short work by St. Faustina's confessor Bl. Michael Sopocko (1888-1975), introduces us to the place of Divine Mercy in salvation history. Enriched by Dr. Robert Stackpole's expert commentary, this special edition of a Divine Mercy classic belongs on every Catholic's shelf.
Without Bl. Michael Sopocko (1888-1975), we would not have the Divine Mercy message and devotion.
For years, Bl. Michael Sopocko served as spiritual director and confessor to St. Faustina Kowalska, the great Secretary and Apostle of Divine Mercy. A holy priest, brilliant theologian, and expert in Christian spirituality, he arranged for the painting of the original Vilnius Divine Mercy Image, the first publication of Divine Mercy materials, instructed St. Faustina to keep a diary, and handed on the Divine Mercy message and devotion to the Marian Fathers.
Now, his one-volume exploration of Divine Mercy, God is Mercy, is published as God's Amazing Mercy. This new edition of a perennial classic is enriched by the expert commentary of Dr. Robert Stackpole, director of the John Paul II Institute of Divine Mercy. Concise, brilliant, this important work will introduce a new generation to the central place of Divine Mercy in our faith and in God's plan.
