A new film explores the mystery and majesty behind the sacred image
The image of Divine Mercy is now one of the most identifiable sacred images among Catholics around the world. But most don’t know the history behind this image of Jesus given to St. Faustina Kowalska in the 1930s.
Daniel diSilva, a writer and filmmaker in San Diego, seeks to change that with his new documentary that explores the original image of Divine Mercy. Currently it is being screened around the United States.
The idea for the film came to diSilva when he saw the original Divine Mercy image for the first time and heard about the difficulty the Archdiocese of Vilnius had when they attempted to move the painting from an old Polish church to the new shrine in Old Town Vilnius.
