A Call to Trust

In her book, A Call to Trust, Catherine M. Lanni, Foundress and Spiritual Moderator of The Shrine of Jesus the Divine Mercy and of the Women of Jesus’ Merciful Passion describes how on September 30, 1994 the Lord requested that she establish and form a religious order of women. The order will one day, God willing, be called the Sisters of Jesus’ Merciful Passion.

In the fall of 2012, Catherine received permission from Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron to begin work on this new community of women. The Statutes and Bylaws for this community of women were approved on September 15, 2016 by Archbishop Vigneron. This allowed the WJMP to fall completely within the Private Association of Christian Faithful that is The Shrine of Jesus the Divine Mercy.

On April 16, 2019, Archbishop Vigneron gave his approval and blessing for the women interested in discerning this community to begin living in common on the property of the The Shrine of Jesus the Divine Mercy. May 13, 2019 marked the inception of the WJMP and the call from the heart of Jesus became a reality.

Spreading the message of Divine Mercy

The Women of Jesus’ Merciful Passion (WJMP) is a fruitful outcome of The Shrine of Jesus the Divine Mercy (SJDM), a private association of Christ’s Faithful established by His Eminence, Adam Cardinal Maida, on April 20, 2003.

As a part of the SJDM, the members of the WJMP continue to spread the message of Divine Mercy as revealed by Jesus to Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska. The charisms of this community are Holy Hospitality and Spiritual Direction.

The members of the WJMP seek to attain holiness and live in community while following the Rule of the Ten Virtues of the Blessed Virgin Mary. They seek to imitate Mary’s life and virtues in thought, word, and deed, which, rooted in the Gospels, are Purity; Prudence; Humility; Faith; Devotion; Obedience; Poverty; Patience; Mercy and Sorrow.

If you are a Catholic woman 16 to 40 and are feeling called to the charism of this community, we invite you to contact us at or 586-777-8591. May God bless you!

Mother Foundress Catherine Lanni

Catherine M. Lanni is a gifted speaker and the founder of The Shrine of Jesus the Divine Mercy, and the Divine Mercy Center in Clinton Township, Michigan.

In 1986, Catherine was miraculously healed through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary while on her deathbed, after giving birth to her youngest daughter. She made a promise that she would do something “good” for God (in return). In 1992, Jesus Christ appeared to Catherine and asked for “a total healing of every strata of the Church.”

Catherine recounts the entire story in her book, “A Call to Trust.”

"Teach them this prayer: Lord Jesus, I am so sorry for the separation between You and me. I have blamed You for my sorrow and suffering. But Jesus, with all of my heart and soul so full of desire to know you better and to experience, really experience Your tender mercy, I ask You to forgive me, Lord. Draw me closer to Your Sacred Heart. Grant me, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the necessary graces to sustain me and get me through my time of suffering. In turn, I graciously offer up to You all my pains and scourges for Your greater glory. I do this in the name of Jesus. Amen." A Call to Trust 106-107 ... See MoreSee Less

"Before the vigil supper, I entered the chapel for a moment to break the wafer spiritually with those dear to my heart. I presented them all, by name, to Jesus and begged for graces on their behalf. But that wasn't all. I commended to the Lord all those who are being persecuted, those who are suffering, those who do not know His Name, and especially poor sinners. O little Jesus, I fervently ask You, enclose them all in the ocean of Your incomprehensible mercy" Diary of Saint Faustina 845 ... See MoreSee Less
