“Love and Mercy,” a docudrama on Divine Mercy and the mission of Sr. Faustina Kowalska, reveals previously unknown facts and recently disclosed documents that shed new light on the truth of the Divine Mercy message. As many know, the Divine Mercy is a devotion to Jesus Christ associated with the apparitions of Jesus to Sr. Faustina in Poland in the 1930s. Jesus urged Sr. Faustina to paint an image according to the pattern that she had seen, and requested to have the image venerated, first in the sisters' chapel, and then throughout the world. The venerated image under this Christological title refers to what Sr. Faustina’s diary describes as “God’s loving mercy” towards all people, especially for sinners. Scientific analysis included in the film indicates that Sr. Faustina indeed saw the Lord Jesus. Cooperating with the Kondrat-Media team, a group of experts found letters of Fr. Michał Sopoćko (Sr. Faustina’s confessor), and, while browsing forgotten archives, they found additional previously unknown documents. To a large extent, “Love and Mercy” can contribute to fulfilling Jesus’ promise that “the spark that will prepare the world for My final coming” will come from Poland (Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, 1732).

“For me that movie is just like ‘The Passion of the Christ.’ It was the second time in our life when we were going out of the cinema in silence. We could hear our steps and sniffing og the people. Nobody wanted to show that it was him who was crying. There are a lot of religious movies, but only ‘The Passion of the Christ’ and ‘Love and Mercy’ touched me deeply.”
“I watched the movie last Saturday. What is perfect in it is the spirit of God. I felt how much of the mysticism in that movie just after I left — the essence of the Divine Mercy with the Holy Spirit.”
“The cinema rooms were packed full. The spark of Divine Mercy spread all over the world. After watching the movie, people left the cinema with tears in their eyes. They were extremely moved and touched.”
„At a certein point I stopped focusing on St. Faustina, and I started experiencing God’s presence, love and trust – directly from St. Faustina – that I will manage with this role.”
“This is the most important film that I have ever watched. I recommend it to all of my family and friends. This film changed me, and it will continue to change a lot of hearts in the world. Please do all you can to translate it into as many languages as possible.”
Polish director and film producer of many christian movies. His recent film ``Two Crowns`` set the polish box office record on dokumentaries fictionalized in recent years. Theatrical rights have been sold to 12 countries.
I did not plan this production. I worked on the documentation for the Polish-American feature film “Mercy” — about St. Faustina, Blessed Sopoćko and Divine Mercy — which is expected to release in 2020. However, during the collection of materials and insightful browsing of various archives, I came across documents whose discovery will enlighten viewers about Divine Mercy. Now you will be able to see how many elements fit together and how God has beautifully orchestrated all of it. I cannot reveal too much, but I can say that “Love and Mercy” will not be another one of my films. It will be much more than that. … What I have experienced so far while filming “Love and Mercy” confirms my belief that God will take care of the completion of this important production. Who knows, He may use your help, too. This production is created thanks to the involvement of many people. At the moment I can say with certainty that it will have the chance to move the most hardened hearts. — Michał Kondrat
