The entire puzzle above is made up of all the Prayers and Phrases used in the DivineMercy Chaplet, inspired by Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska, a religious sister (also referred to as a Nun).
She was a member of the Congregation of Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Cracow, Poland. The Caplet was a result of appearances of Jesus to Saint Faustina, which began on February 22, 1931.
According to EWTN and the Congregation of Marians of the Immaculate Conception in Stockbridge, MA, the following was said about the institution of Divine Mercy Sunday by Pope John Paul II on May 23, 2000:
In a decree dated 23 May 2000, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments stated that “throughout the world the Second Sunday of Easter will receive the name Divine Mercy Sunday, a perennial invitation to the Christian world to face, with confidence in divine benevolence, the difficulties and trials that mankind will experience in the years to come.”
These papal acts represent the highest endorsement that the Church can give to a private revelation, an act of papal infallibility proclaiming the certain sanctity of the mystic, and the granting of a universal feast, as requested by Our Lord to St. Faustina.
