I've never seen the Divine Mercy image without also seeing the Sacred & Immaculate hearts. The Sacred Heart is the same and emphasizes the Mercy and Love of God too.

You think the Sacred Heart devotion was easily accepted? no way, the King of France rejected it and it didn't get anywhere in the Church, it wasn't until all of Christendom lied in ruins over the French Revolution that they finally heeded it. Look at all that had to befall mankind before they would heed the Sacred Heart devotion (And the world has NEVER recovered from that lie ever since).

The problem is these people have never read St Faustina's diary. Furthermore, look at the Divine Mercy Image itself, it's not a feel good look of you can do no wrong, no, it's a very harsh look emphasizing the seriousness of sin and at the same time the infinite mercy of God for the repentant.

Those who don't speak of Hell or think nobody or very few are there, are in direct contradiction to the devotion, which St Faustina says she visited so that no one can claim the excuse that they don't know what Hell is like or that nobody has ever been there, and she said the most common attribute among the damned was that they didn't believe in such a place.

x2, but unfortunately this is just a case of ignorance on both sides of the aisle.

"For the sake of His sorrowful passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world."

God Bless You
