Rosary of Our Lady's Tears
ROSARY OF OUR LADY’S TEARS
Next to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus there is nothing more touching and effective than the tears of Our Heavenly Mother! How mane tears She shed on the Way of the Cross and when She stood beneath the Cross! She shed bitter tears in reparation for the many insults Her Divine Son then and which He would receive in the future. She wept bitter tears for the many souls who would not submit to the Commandments of God, and so would be lost forever. In recent centuries, too, She wept tears of sorrow:
THE ORIGIN OF THE CHAPLET
This rosary or chaplet was revealed in 1929 and 1930 by Our Lord and His most holy Mother to Sister Amalia in Campina, Brazil and was confirmed as supernatural by Bishop Campos Baretto.
Our Lord’s words to Sister Amalia on November 8, 1929 were: “My daughter, whatever I am asked through the tears of My Mother, I shall give lovingly.”
On March 8, 1930, the Most Pure Mother stated: “Through this rosary the devil will be subdued and the power of hell will be destroyed. Prepare yourself for this great combat.” Today the devil has much power because we have forgotten sin and no longer believe that satan exists.
HOW TO PRAY THE ROSARY OF TEARS:
THE CHAPLET IS PRAYED WITH REGULAR ROSARY BEADS IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE SPECIAL CHAPLET BEADS, EXCEPT YOU SAY SEVEN DECADES.
INSTEAD OF THE CREED, SAY:
Crucified Jesus! We fall at Your feet and offer You the tears of Her who with deep compassionate love accompanied You on Your sorrowful Way of the Cross. Grant, O Good Master, that we take to heart the lessons which the tears of Your Most Holy Mother teach us, so that we may fulfill Your Holy will on earth, that we may be worthy to praise and exalt You in Heaven for all eternity.
INSTEAD OF OUT FATHER, SAY:
V. O Jesus, look upon the tears of Her who loved You most on earth
R. And loves You most ardently in Heaven.
INSTEAD OF THE HAIL MARY, SAY:
V. O Jesus, hear our prayers
R. For the sake of Your most Holy Mother’s tears. At the end repeat three times on the small beads the invocations that replace the Our Father.
Conclude with this prayer:
O Mary, Mother of love, sorrow and mercy, we beg you to unite your prayers with ours so that Jesus, Your Divine Son, to Whom we turn may hear our petitions in the name of Your maternal tears and may give us in addition to the favors we ask, the crown of everlasting life. Amen
