Our Lady of Tears - Brazil 1928 - A Mostly Unknown Marian Devotion

I´m sharing some info on the Marian apparition under the title of Our Lady of Tears, which occured in Brazil between 1928 and 1933, in case someone may be interested on. The messages have ecclesiastic approval and have been sent by local Bishop to Pope Pius XI. The nun is under beatification process which started this year.

The seer - Amalia Aguirre (1901-1977) a mystic Spanish Nun

Amalia belonged to the first group of eight young nuns, co-founders of the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of Jesus Crucified, who, on 11 May 1928, received the religious habit, taking the name Sister Amalia of Flagellated Jesus while in her mission in Brazil.

She received mystical gifts from childhood, and spoke constantly with Jesus. Her first mystical manifestation was at the age of 10, when she made her first communion. Jesus appeared to her again at the age of 15, at 3 o'clock in the afternoon (the hour of Mercy), asking for her consecration and to come to suffer for souls. From that moment on, she began to suffer from internal stigmata (without visible manifestation). Sometimes she would faint from pain, without her parents' understanding.

Throughout her life, she received gifts that were characteristic of great saints. Among them the visible stigmata, present in the lives of St Francis of Assisi, St Gemma Galgani, St Padre Pio of Pietrelcina.

Sister Amalia's visible stigmata were publicly manifested on 21 August 1928. The stigmata closed soon after the presentation of the Crown of Tears and reappeared in 1934 when Mary warned her of the danger of Communism, when she bled daily until 1935. They remained internal, however, for her entire life.

She mystically betrothed herself to Jesus Christ, in the same way as happened with St Veronica Giuliani.

From September 1929, she began to receive messages from Jesus and Mary, which were transcribed as requested by her director. Most messages were collected while she was in extasis.

The nun was compared by the Bishop of Campinas to St Gema Galgani, in a letter to Pope Pius XI, in which he reported on her diary, which was destroyed by the devil, in the same way as happened to the Italian saint.

Before the presentation of the Crown of Tears by Our Lady, she received the transverberation of the Heart on March 1930, like St Teresa of Avila, St Veronica Giuliani and St Padre Pio of Pietrelcina.

In the same month, Sister Amalia of Flagellated Jesus was praying in the convent chapel when she unexpectedly felt herself being lifted up. Then Our Lady appeared to her in a violet tunic, a blue mantle and a white veil covering her chest and shoulders. With a smile, she approached Sister Amalia, holding in her hands a rosary which she herself called the "Crown of her tears". Its beads shone like the sun and were white as snow.

In the apparition of 8 April 1930, the Blessed Virgin asked Sister Amalia to have a medal of Our Lady of Tears and of Jesus Manacled minted, and said that this same medal should be widely disseminated so that Satan's power in the world might be overcome. Our Lady also added that all the faithful who brought it with love and devotion would obtain innumerable graces.

In 1931, in Poland, St Faustina Kowalska received messages from Jesus about Divine Mercy. These messages were written in a diary. At the same time, in Brazil, on a Wednesday, 4 March 1931, Jesus appeared to Sister Amalia of Flagellated Jesus, while she was standing before the Blessed Sacrament, and taught her that it was necessary to "...cooperate with Divine Mercy for our sanctification."

Sister Amalia received Jesus and Mary in colloquies until the end of her pilgrimage in this exile in 1977. Many miracles of healing the sick, solving problems of all kinds and graces were attributed to her while she was still alive, when she was already sought after by the faithful.

I do not know if it´s allowed to post external links. If it´s not, I would ask the moderator to remove it. I collected some material on this Marian Apparition, which i disposed at a Google Drive Space, in case someone´s interested: bit.ly/OurLadyofTears
