St. Faustina was a Polish born nun.  She was asked to become the apostle and secretary of God's mercy, a model of how to be merciful to others, and an instrument for reemphasizing God's plan of mercy for the world. Her entire life, in imitation of Christ's, was to be a sacrifice - a life lived for others. She wrote and suffered in secret, with only her spiritual director and some of her superiors aware that anything special was taking place in her life.
