The Divine Mercy of Jesus, also known as the Divine Mercy, is a Roman Catholic devotions to Jesus Christ associated with the reputed apparitions of Jesus to Saint Faustina Kowalska. The Roman Catholic devotion and venerated image under this Christological title refers to what Faustina's diary describes as "Gods's loving mercy". Saint Faustina was granted the title "Secretary of Mercy" by the Holy See in the Jubilee Year of 2000. Sister Faustina Kowalska reported a number of apparitions during religious ecstasy which she wrote in her diary, later published as the book Diary: Divine Mercy in My Soul. The three main themes of the devotion are to ask for and obtain the mercy of God, to trust in Christ's abundant mercy, and finally to show mercy to others and act as a conduit for God's mercy towards them.

Pope John Paul II, a native of Poland, had great affinity towards this devotion and authorized it in the Liturgical Calendar of the church. The liturgical feast of the Divine Mercy is celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Some members of the Anglican Communion also share its pious beliefs and devotions in an effort towards church renewal.
