Format: Paperback
This is the first item about Blessed Faustina Kowalska that I have read, and it was a very well-written book which provided much information into her life. I recommend reading this biography before beginning Sr. Faustina's diary, as it will give you some insight into her life and how Christ appeared to her. It's not too long, but it gives the complete story of her life and is easy reading. This book inspired me to read her diary.

Format: Paperback
This is a special book about private revelations of Jesus Christ to Sr. Faustina. The book offers special insights into her life, and a great amount of detail on the miracles. I took the advice from the reviewer from Baltimore to read this first before reading the diary. It is wonderful to read about these amazing events from only about 60 years ago.

This is an amazingly well researched and written book on the life of Helen Kowalska aka St. Faustina. It is incredibly readable and is essential reading and addition to the library of any devotee of the Divine Mercy. This book along with the Diary, and "the Letters of St Faustina" are required to see the entire personhood of St. Faustina.

Fantastic, Engrossing Biography March 27 2006
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book! The author does an excellent job creating an interesting biography that flows well and helps the reader understand the life and spirituality of a truly amazing Saint.

This book is based on St. Faustina's diaries. However, where the diaries are massive and don't always flow in a way that is easy to digest [they are not chronological], this biography organizes the diaries and what they contain in such a way that it is easy to read without losing any of the authenticity of what Saint Faustina wrote about her life and her relationship with Christ.

In addition to a really fascinating story, this biography is great spiritual reading. I knew a little about St. Faustina and the Divine Mercy devotion before I started the book, but I have found her life to be extremely inspiring and I think I have had a lot of spiritual growth reading this book - coming to understand Divine Mercy and to understand what Sister Faustina went through to bring it to us - wow. Its just amazing.

So, I highly recommend this book both for your reading enjoyment [its a great story!] and for your spiritual edification! You can't lose either way. :)

"Mercy My Mission" -- The Life Of Sister Faustina Nov. 19 2006
By Michael G. Batcho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sister Sophia Michalenko has given us a most spiritually rewarding "biography" of Sister "Saint" Faustina in this volume. It is the perfect companion book to Sister Faustina's own "Diary" . . . this places her diary entries in an order and context which allows us to see the spiritual insights of this mystic and "holy soul" in a more complete perspective.

While it reads like a simple biography and story retelling the life of this young nun, it at the same time draws so heavily and appropriately on the Saint's own writings that we begin to "share" in her very spirituality . . . we get to walk together with Sister Faustina's soul on this pilgrim journey toward God and toward God's infinite loving "Divine Mercy". In fact, we learn and discover that "Divine Mercy" is not only the destination and goal of our lives, but at the same time is also the road we must walk and travel to arrive there. And why walk it alone when Saint Faustina can walk alongside you . . . with conversation and encouragement and prayerful guidance? This book can bring that companionship alive for you . . .

i advise you to get this volume along with a copy of Sister Faustina's own diary, "Divine Mercy In My Soul". As you page through her diary and perhaps skip about from chapter to chapter as interest leads you, also read Sister Michalenko's biography of Faustina from beginning to end . . . then the Diary will take on a much deeper significance and impact on you . . . it will become a spiritual treasury . . . and a book of prayer . . . and a friend.
