Foi em Campinas-SP, nos anos de 1930, que Jesus manifestou, a uma missionária, a sua Infinita MISERICÓRDIA. Ele oferece abundância de graças aos que fazem seus pedidos através das Lágrimas de Sangue de Sua Mãe Santíssima. Essa alma privilegiada foi a Irmã Amália Aguirre, ou Amália de Jesus Flagelado, que viveu no Instituto das Irmãs Missionárias de Jesus Crucificado (Campinas-SP). As mensagens comunicadas a ela ficaram engavetadas durante anos, e por meio das Aparições de Nossa Senhora em Jacareí-SP, elas foram reavivadas e tiradas do esquecimento. Com certeza é um tesouro sem igual e mais uma âncora de Salvação para a humanidade!







Our Lady of Tears


On November 8, 1929, Sister Amalia, her heart moved by the grief of a relative whose wife was critically ill, sought Jesus in the Tabernacle and pleaded that she might give her own life for this mother of little children. So sincere was the desire of this Sister who bears the Holy Stigmata that Our Lord spoke to her, telling her how to pray to attain this grace. Jesus said:
"Pray to me in behalf of my mother's tears, I shall gladly grant them."
"My Daughter, whatever men will ask of Me for the sake of the tears of my mother, I shall grant them lovingly."
Sister Amalia bent low her head as she reflected on the Tears of Our Lady. "How shall I pray?" she asked humbly.
"O Jesus, listen to our prayers in behalf of your holy mother's tears. O Jesus, look down upon the tears of her who loved you best on earth and most deeply loves you now in heaven," was the answer.
Our Lord answered her:
"Later my mother will give the treasure of her tears to my beloved institute as a magnet of mercy."

Additional information on Our Lady of Tears

The ImageOur Lady spoke to Sister Amalia:
"Do you know why I wear a blue mantle ? to remind you of heaven, when you are feeling weary from your labors, and carrying the cross of your tribulations.  My mantle reminds you of heaven, to give you indescribable joy and eternal happiness , and this will give courage to your soul and peace to your heart, to continue the struggle until the end!"
"Do you understand the significance of my purple-violet tunic ? I will tell you that you should remember, as you stand before the image of Tears.  Of the colors I wear, purple signifies pain.  The pain the Jesus felt when they beat him, barbarically, on his body.  My mother's heart and my soul were also lacerated  by pain, on seeing Jesus.
"My child, I will explain to you why I wear this white veil , around my breast and covering my head.  White signifies purity, and being the white flower of the Holy Trinity, I could appear without this whiteness."
"The sweet smile you see traced on my lips is for the immense happiness to be able to give mankind such a precious treasure!"
"I will explain to you the reason I appear with my eyes inclined downward.   Inspired painters have recorded my eyes looking upward to sing the glory of my immaculate conception.  Then why are my eyes inclined downward in this apparition, into which you entrust yourself to my blessed tears?  It signifies my compassion toward humanity, because I have come from heaven to alleviate your suffering.  My eyes will always be directed to your sorrows and afflictions, whenever you ask my Son through the tears I shed. And as you are near my image, see that I gaze at you with eyes of compassion and tenderness."
"My child, I will tell you about the rosary in my hands.  I have named it theCrown (chaplet) of Tears .  When you are near me, seeing this chaplet in my hands, remember that it signifies mercy, love, and pain... this chaplet of my blessed tears signifies that your Mother loves you.  Use all its privileges, resort to it with confidence and love."
