Sister Amalia Aguirre (1901- 1977)

Born in Rios, Spain. After 1920 entered in the Association of Missionaries to of Jesus Crucified in Brazil, then Monsignor Count Francisco de Campos Barreto founded the Congregation where Sister Amalia took part.

On the 8th of November 1828, she was visited by a sick relative whose wife was about to die. Being very concerned for her and for her children who would become orphans, she prostrated herself in prayer before the Lord and offered herself as a victim for her healing.

Sister Amalia suffered the stigmata, (the wounds of Christ)

Prostrated before the Blessed Sacrament, she asked the Lord: What do you want me to do?

Jesús responded: if you wish to receive this grace, ask me through the tears of my Mother.
She asked: And how must I pray?

Jesús replied with these invocations: Oh Jesus, look upon the tears of her who loved You most on earth and loves You most ardently in Heaven.
After these affirmations, Jesus saud to Sister Amalia: My daughter. Anything that anyone asks me through the tears of my Mother, I will grant it with much love. Later on, my Mother will give your this treasure for our beloved Institute (her congregation) as a magnet of Mercy.

Four months after the Apparition of Jesus, on the 8th of March 1930, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Sister Amalia when she was praying before the Blessed Sacrament. She said: "This is the Rosary of my Tears, that was promised by my Son to our beloved Institute as part of its legacy. He already gave you the prayers. My son wants to honor me especially with those invocations, furthermore, He will grant all favors asked through the merits of my Tears. This rosary will obtain the conversion of many sinners, especially those possessed by the devil. A special grace is reserved to the Institute of Jesus Crucified, mainly for the conversion of several member of a distant part of the Church. By means of this Rosary, the devil will be defeated and the power of Hell destroyed. Arm yourselves for the Great Battle."

Then She said: Daughter, I will speak about the Rosary that I bring in my hands. Call it the "Crown of Tears"

When you come to my feet, seeing in my hands this Crown, remember that it means Mercy, Love and Pain!

I am the Mother of the Divine Mercy!
I cry before my Son the sins of all men and I am always interceding before the Throne of the Most High for the poor sinners.

When a sinner is rebellious and does not want to hear you, come to my feet and ask through my Blessed Tears. If It is a soul of good will, you will reach from God the Grace for this soul not to be lost.

My Crown of Tears must remind you also my Great Love for sinners. Being Mother of all men and seeing many of them getting lost, I cried for those who being hardened run the risk of precipitating themselves into Hell.

Why did I give it the name of Crown? Because my Tears were crowned by my Divine Son; they are Holy and many generations will exalt them for the benefits received by their intercession. My Son crown them with so many privileges!

Jesus gave these precious pearls to this Institute so that they make part of its patrimony, the Crown of my Blessed Tears signifies that your Mother loves you.

Make use of all their privileges, come to them with confidence and love.

Dear Sour, take advantage of these lessons and meditate the meaning of Our Lady of Tears, I say it full of Love, I am the Mother of Missionaries.

The Tears of Our Lady Chaplet Prayers

The Seven Sorrows of Mary chaplet is made with 58 beads, any color.​
It consists of 7 sets of 7 beads with 1 bead between each set.​
There are 3 beads between the Sorrowful Mary centerpiece​
and the Sorrowful Mary medal. The 7 sets of 7 symbolize​
the Sorrows of Our Mother. This devotion goes back to the​
Middle Ages but has gained new popularity following the​
Church-approved Marian apparitions in Kibeho, Rwanda in the 1980s.​
In her apparitions, Our Lady of Kibeho recommended that people pray​
the Chaplet of the Seven Sorrows to obtain the favor of repentance.​
The 7 Sorrows of Our Lady and The Tears of Our Lady Chaplets​
are made the same but are prayed differently.​
