In 1931, Jesus appeared to a Polish nun called St Faustina. In her words, she 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.”
Jesus asked St Faustina to paint an image of Him exactly as she saw Him, with the words “Jesus, I trust in You” written underneath. As St Faustina’s visions of Jesus continued, He requested that she start devotion to the Divine Mercy, in which we are asked to recall that God is merciful, that we should be merciful, and to completely trust in Jesus.
