 Our Description

This traditional chant sung by Still Waters on EWTN has become an increasingly popular devotional album (over 50,000 sold) for people who want to pray the sung chaplet on a regular basis.

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is a powerful prayer for mercy that was given to the world through spiritual Diary of Blessed Faustina Kowalska, a Polish nun and mystic who, in the 1930s, received an almost continuous series of revelations from the Lord about His mercy.

Given to Blessed Faustina by our Lord in 1935, the Chaplet is a powerful intercessory prayer that is recited or sung using ordinary Rosary beads.

Blessed Faustina writes that Our Lord asked her to encourage everyone to pray the Chaplet, and He attached extraordinary promises to its recitation.

The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is taken from Divine Mercy in My Soul; The Diary of Sister Faustina Kowalska.

The music used on the recording is the traditional melody used for years by the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Cracow, Poland.  Originally composed by Maria Smetkiewicz, it was adapted by Archbishop George H. Pearce, SM and Rev, Gerald Farrell, MM. Organ arrangement by Fr. Michael Barrett, CSsR.

Brief Biography

Often called the "Apostle of Divine Mercy" Sr. Maria Faustina Kowalska was the third of ten children, she attended only three years of school. As a teenager, she worked as a domestic servant for other families. After being rejected by several religious orders, she became a nun in the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Warsaw, Poland on 1 August 1925; the order is devoted to care and education of troubled young women. She changed her name to Sister Maria Faustina of the Most Blessed Sacrament. During her 13 years in various houses, she was a cook, gardener, and porter.

She had a special devotion to Mary Immaculate, to the Blessed Sacrament, and to Reconciliation, which led to a deep mystical interior life. She began to have visions, receive revelations, and experience hidden stigmata. She began recording these mystical experiences in a diary; being nearly illiterate, it was written phonetically, without quotation marks or punctuation, and runs to nearly 700 pages. A bad translation reached Rome in 1958, and was labelled heretical. However, when Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) became Archbishop of Krakow, he was beseiged by requests for a reconsideration. He ordered a better translation made, and Vatican authorities realized that instead of heresy, the work proclaimed God's love. It was published as "Divine Mercy in my Soul."

In the 1930's, Sister Faustina received a message of mercy from Our Lord that she was told to spread throughout the world, a message of God's mercy to each person individually, and for humanity as a whole. Jesus asked that a picture be painted of him with the inscription: "Jesus, I Trust in You." She was asked to be a model of mercy to others, to live her entire life, in imitation of Christ's, as a sacrifice. She commissioned this painting in 1935, showing a red and a white light shining from Christ's Sacred Heart.

The Apostles of Divine Mercy is a movement of priests, religious, and lay people inspired by Faustina's experiences; they spread knowledge of the mystery of Divine Mercy, and invoke God's mercy on sinners. Approved in 1996 by the Archdiocese of Krakow, it has spread to 29 countries.

The Divine Mercy Devotion is now the second most popular Catholic devotion in the world, surpassed only by the Holy Rosary.
