Glossy full-color print of the Divine Mercy image suitable for framing.
This highly venerated image is based on the 1931 vision of Saint Faustina Kowalska of Jesus as the "King of Divine Mercy". St. Faustina's Diary relates the rays of light within the image to life and salvation. She was told by Jesus: "The two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale rays stand for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls." A Full of Grace USA Original Product.

The Image of The Divine Mercy originated from a vision St. Faustina had on Feb. 22, 1931. She recorded the event in her Diary, which she kept at the Lord's request.
In the evening, when I was in my cell, I saw the Lord Jesus clothed in a white garment. One hand [was] raised in the gesture of blessing; the other was touching the garment at the breast. From beneath the garment, slightly drawn aside at the breast, there were emanating two large rays, one red, the other pale. In silence I kept my gaze fixed on the Lord; my soul was struck with awe, but also with great joy. After a while, Jesus said to me, "Paint an image according to the pattern you see, with the signature: Jesus, I trust in You. I desire that this image be venerated, first in your chapel, and [then] throughout the world" (Diary, 47).
So what does the image mean? The Image of The Divine Mercy represents the risen Christ whose hands and feet bear the marks of the Crucifixion. When asked about the meaning of the rays from His pierced Heart, Jesus explained, "The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. ... These two rays issued forth from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross" (Diary, 299).
He said, "By means of this image I shall be granting many graces to souls; so let every soul have access to it" (Diary, 570).
Jesus also said: "I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish. I also promise victory over [its] enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I Myself will defend it as My own glory" (Diary, 48). from the divinemercy.org
