Daughters of Divine Mercy

As Christ’s own daughters, we strive to place our trust always in His Divine Mercy. Through the daily example of our individual lives and the life of our household, we endeavor to remind the world of the merciful love of God towards every human being.

“Have mercy on me, O God, according to Thy steadfast love; according to Thy abundant mercy, blot out my transgressions.” Ps 51:1

“But I trust in Thee, O Lord, I say ‘Thou art my God.’ My times are in Thy hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors!” Ps 31:14-15

“In this hour [3:00 pm], I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My passion.” Diary 1320

We focus first on the Divine Mercy of Our Lord, and on the reconciliation which flows from His Mercy. In this spirit, we commit ourselves to making reparation for our own sins, and those of the whole world. In the twin streams of blood and water flowing from Christ’s heart in the image of the Divine Mercy, we recognize the cleansing power of His Mercy which makes souls righteous, and the healing power which nurtures the soul with life.

With assured reliance and confident dependence on God, we believe that without His Mercy we can do nothing. We place our lives in the hands of God, and trust in His enduring merciful love as we strive to follow His will. For this reason, we take as our household motto “Jezu, ufam tobie” – “Jesus, I trust in You.”

We willingly carry our crosses, and offer them as sacrifices in imitation of the redemptive sacrifice of Christ. We unite our sufferings with His for the redemption of souls, especially in His hour of mercy (three o’clock p.m.)

Passionate joy binds us together as a community of sisters who encourage each other in love on our journey toward perfection in the spirit of childlike confidence in God.

We take as our patrons St. Maria Faustina Kowalska of the Most Blessed Sacrament, to whom Our Lord revealed the image of His Divine Mercy, and Pope John Paul the Great, who throughout his Pontificate promoted devotion to the Divine Mercy. We place ourselves under the care and patronage of Mary, Our Lady of the Divine Mercy.
