BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, CELEBRATED FILM ABOUT ST. FAUSTINA RETURNS TO CINEMAS FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY

WHAT: Love and Mercy tells the story of Faustina Kowalska and her experiences in 1931, when Jesus appeared to her as the King of Mercy. Clothed in a white robe and emanating two large rays from his side, one white and one red, He asked Faustina to paint this image of Himself along with the phrase, "Jesus, I trust in You" and to spread the message of mercy around the world. This gripping new docudrama will shed new light on the vision of Faustina.

 

Aided by scientific analysis, the film reveals how the Divine Mercy image and the Shroud of Turin were compared to one another to stunning conclusions. Dramatically recreated scenes between Saint Faustina and her confessor Father Michał Sopoćko traces the story of the origins of the image and how the devotion to Divine Mercy was born and spread throughout the world. Shot in the U.S., Poland and Lithuania, the film is a compelling hybrid of dramatization and documentary-style storytelling that will leave viewers in awe of this spectacular account of divine friendship.
