Sister Faustina was, to my understanding, a Polish visionary nun, who in the '20s or '30s received an image she called 'The Divine Mercy'. It's an image of Christ, I believe, as an embodiment of love, with rays of red (blood?) and white (water?) coming from his heart. She had someone paint the image as she described.
I came across it because my grandmother, who was the
same age as the century, was confined to her bed for some time and, apart
from doing the Daily Mail crossword, amused herself by picking people
from the 'phone book and sending them a 'holy picture card' of that image.
