We were made for love, and love requires trust. In Jesus I Trust in You: A 30-Day Personal Retreat with the Litany of Trust, Sr. Faustina Maria Pia, S.V., learn what it means to place our trust in Jesus—no matter the circumstances.
In this powerful invitation to a loving, trusting relationship with our Lord, you will pray with the Litany of Trust to overcome every obstacle to peace.
Sr. Faustina Maria Pia, S.V. was raised in Somers, Connecticut and studied Human Services and Nursing, desiring to serve those who are suffering. After experiencing a call from Jesus, she entered the Sisters of Life in 2009 and professed her final vows in 2018. The Sisters of Life are a community of religious women who vow to protect the sacred dignity of every human life; their missions include serving women in crisis pregnancies and women who have suffered the wound of abortion. Sr. Faustina currently resides in New York and serves as the local superior of the Sacred Heart Convent.
“Whether we find ourselves affected by circumstances beyond our control or a more personal challenge is staring us in the face, walking with Jesus through this beautiful Litany of Trust will help us move forward away from fear, bringing us one step closer to understanding and fulfilling the Lord’s will for our lives.”—Teresa Tomeo, Syndicated talk show host of Catholic Connection
“One of the reasons why so many have so quickly taken to praying the Litany of Trust is because we need help to trust in God in the midst of various personal, ecclesial, and social struggles. In this life-changing work, we receive the grace to enter into the faith and contemplation of Sr. Faustina Bianchi, S.V., who prayed forth the Litany. She shows us how, with God’s help, we can be delivered from the fears and false ideas that undermine trust and how to grow in the truths that will help us trust in God in every circumstance.”—Fr. Roger J. Landry, Author of Plan of Life: Habits to Help You Grow Closer to God
“Trust is a highly valued virtue for Christians that few of us know how to achieve. In this book, you will learn not only how and why to trust the Lord but also that he is so very worthy of our trust. Sr. Faustina’s gentle words are full of truth and the confidence that can come only from lived experience. In this powerful personal retreat, you, too, will discover the heart of the Father and the deep intimacy he desires to share with you as you surrender to his love.”—Beth Davis, Writer, Director of Ministry Advancement for Blessed is She
“Life can overwhelm each and every one of us. There is only one solution: Jesus Christ! And in Sr. Faustina’s retreat through the Litany of Trust, you will be welcomed into the depths of Jesus’s unfailing love and mercy. I recommend this journey for all!”—Curtis A. Martin, Founder and CEO of Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS)
“The Litany of Trust is a gift for the world from God. And so is this book. I know I’ve been longing for something like Jesus I Trust in You since the first time I prayed the Litany of Trust, and I will be gifting this book to people for years to come!”—Kathryn Jean Lopez, Senior Fellow at National Review Institute and Director of the Center for Religion, Culture, and Civil Society

I’m a Clinical Social Worker. I saw Sr. Faustina speaking on TV. I was impressed by her caring and her sincere spirituality.
I purchased the book for review, and am now recommending it to clients who will find it helpful.

I’m technically a protestant who draws guidance in prayer from sources in the catholic faith side as well. I have given this book to other protestant sisters after enjoying it on my own with God. I’m overjoyed that today my 15 year old daughter, who tells me she has a hard time trusting anyone, has agreed to go through this book with me as a homeschool devotional for the next 30 weeks. We’ll take it slow to take it in. I look forward to my second journey through this guide as I meditate on these essential truths with my daughter.

This book is such a treasure! I don’t remember how I found out about it, but I will be recommending it to many (and already have). Sr. Faustina’s insights are from the heart — the heart of God! I have wept, I have nodded in agreement, I have exclaimed out loud at the revelations. Such beautiful illuminations, and words to express them so perfectly, reaching the center of the soul. Highly recommend!

This is such an anointed book…every word/sentence is packed full of insight and PAUSE. I just cannot read. I must stop and reflect! I have started using Index cards for the very rich/profound statements Sr Faustina makes!! A great book for everyone Rosemarie
I received this book in the mail, even though I didn’t order it. But, it was certainly the providence of God. I’m about halfway through, and it has been very convicting, encouraging and enlightening in a way few other retreats and spiritual books have been for me. Trust is foundational in any close relationship, and most especially with God, yet it seems to be the hardest thing to have and hold on to consistently, in every moment of every day and any situation. With Lent approaching, this has given me a focus for Lent — to learn to trust God more deeply and profoundly than ever before.
This book is exactly what I need right now in my life! Trust is hard! Nearly every line of this litany is relatable to me and has been a great resources for opening up my heart to trust God more fully, to see the invitations He sends, and to feel not alone in the struggle.

In this new book, Sr. Faustina Maria of the Sisters of Life expands on each of the lines in the Litany of Trust, a prayer she wrote and has since become widely popular, creating a rich and reflective 30 day retreat. Perfect for personal prayer, or even for a group to read together, it really has been a gift to my prayer life over the past couple of weeks. Trust is something we are never finished growing in on this side of Heaven, and I think that anyone could benefit from these reflections!
This book speaks to my soul
