About the Film
At the request of Jesus himself, Saint Faustina and her confessor, Fr. Michael Sopoćko, worked in secret with artist Eugeniusz Kazimirowski to represent on a canvas her mystical vision of the Merciful Jesus. After the painting was complete including the many corrections made at the insistence of Saint Faustina, the violently anti-Catholic Soviet occupation of Vilnius, Lithuania, forced the painting into hiding for many years. The painting was finally rediscovered and installed in its permanent home in a beautiful sanctuary in Vilnius in accordance with the will of Blessed Michal Sopoćko and the instructions of Saint Faustina.
