Sacred Heart of Jesus


On the first and second apparition of the Angel of Peace, in the year of 1916, this one speaks to the Sacred Heart of Jesus:

« There were some moments in which we played and, as the day was so calm that when a  strong wind blows into the trees it makes us look up to see what was happening. We then saw above the olive grove such figure that, I already spoke to you about, walking towards us. Jacinta and Francisco haven’t seen it yet nor have I spoken about it. As he came near we were able to see his features: a young men in his 14 or 15 years old, whiter than the snow which the sun made so transparent as if he was a crystal and very beautiful.

When he got close to us he said: 

“Do not fear! I am the Angel of Peace. Pray with me.”

And he knelt, bending his forehead to the ground. We repeated the words we heard Him say:

 “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love you. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love you.”

Then, he got up and said:

“Pray in this way. The hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to your prayers.”

His words were engraved in such way into our minds that we could never forget. (…)

« It has been a long time and on a summer day in which, we were going to spend our nap time at home, we were playing on top of a well that my parents had on the back yard which we called Arneiro.  Suddenly, we see near us the same figure or an Angel, like it seemed to me and it said:

“What are you doing? Pray a lot! The Hearts of Jesus and Mary have merciful designs for you. You must constantly offer your prayer and sacrifices to God, the Most High.”

“How are we to sacrifice?” -  I asked.  

“In every possible way offer sacrifice to God in reparation for the sins by which He is offended, and in supplication for the conversion of sinners. In this way you will bring peace to your country. I am the Guardian Angel of Portugal. Above all, bear and accept with submission the sufferings God will send you."»

Jesus to Alexandrina:

« Rest against My Heart; here you will find everything: light for you to walk, strength to bear everything and love to all suffer. »

 (Letters to Father Mariano Pinho; 24/09/1937)



Jesus to Alexandrina:

« You gave me everything: In exchange I give my all to you. I give you all My Heart’s treasures. Take them, they are yours. Give them to who you want. He is overflowing with love: divide him. How lovely is to love Jesus! »

 (Letters to Father Mariano Pinho; 05/05/1938)




« Jesus joined to mine His Sacred chest and, full sweetness, He told me:

“My daughter, soul with soul, heart with heart, love with love. I move to your heart the balsam of My Divine love to ease your pain. Courage! I have taken from this battles many repairs for the big crimes that were practiced on this night.”

The Sacred Heart of Jesus was in front of me for a while, in his natural size; he was handsome, all of Him was sweet and love. When we appeared H did not say anything. His Divine presence filled me, gave peace and tranquillity to my soul. » 

 (26/12/1947;Feelings of the Soul; 19/12/1947)



« Oh my Jesus, I love you, I suffer to love and console you Divine Heart; I suffer to repair all crimes in the world and, save all souls for You. I live for everything that you want, less to offend You and dislike You. Oh! How I thought I would happy if I did not have another purpose on Earth rather than to suffer and love! »

 (Letters to Padre Mariano Pinho; 10/06/1939)



« Jesus, let me in that Divine wound, in that Divine Heart: I want to hide myself and vanish, to melt in that fire like an ice melts with the sun and secretly disappears on Earth. Give me love Jesus, I do not want to appear in the world. All Earth gives you praise, Jesus: and I give you nothing. » 

 (Feelings of the Soul; 30/05/1947)


 Painting of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Alexandrina’s room.



Alexandrina, in ecstasy:

« (Knelled in front of the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus she softly sang :)

In Your Heart Jesus

In Your Heart there is Love,

In Your Heart there is sweetness,

In Your Heart there is no pain.

Forgive, dear Jesus

Forgive, have mercy

Forgive, dear Jesus

Forgive, have mercy

Send peace to the world

Send peace to the world,

By your pure Heart. »

 (Ecstasies; 06/09/1940)


Alexandrina describes a vision:

«Jesus vented with me.  He would tell me sad things, but His consolations and the love that He made me feel, made me forget all His vents. I would spend nights and nights without resting contemplating the paintings that Jesus would show me in our intimate conversations. Sometimes, I would see Jesus as a gardener taking care of the little flowers, watering them, guiding them, etc.; he would walk among them showing me the variety of flowers. Other times, he would appeared to me in His natural size, showing me His Divine Heart surrounded with rays of love. »
