The Divine Mercy image is a depiction of Jesus based on the devotion initiated by Saint Faustina Kowalska.
"I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish," Jesus told Faustina, according to her diary, which has been studied and authenticated by the Church over several decades. "I also promise victory over enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I myself will defend it as My own glory." (Diary of Faustina, 48)
A number of artistic renditions of the image have appeared since Faustina directed the painting of the first image in Vilnius, Lithuania. These are widely venerated worldwide, and are used in the celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday, observed in Roman Catholic, as well as some Anglican churches.
