Immaculate Heart of Mary


On the second apparition of Our Lady – 13th June 1917 – the Virgin clearly reveals to the little ones her Immaculate Heart: 

«And you (Lucia) do you suffer a lot? I will never leave you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refugee and your path that will lead you to God. 

”Upon saying these last words, she opened her hands, and for the second time she communicated to us the reflection of that intense light. We could see ourselves in it, as if immersed in God. Jacinta and Francisco seemed to be in the part of this light that went up toward heaven, and I in the part that was cast toward the ground. In front of Our Lady's right hand there was a heart encircled by thorns that seemed to pierce it. We understood that it was the Immaculate Heart of Mary, insulted by the sins of humanity and which desires reparation. »

(Memories of Sister Lucia I; page 175/176)


 On the third apparition of Our Lady in Cova da Iria - 13th July 1917 – declares:

« “I want you to come here on the thirteenth of next month and to continue to pray the Rosary every day in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary, in order to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war, for she alone can be of any avail.(…)

Sacrifice yourselves for sinners and say many times, especially when you make a sacrifice: Oh Jesus, this is for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.'"

By saying these last words, she opened her hands again like she did on the last two months.


 [The shepherds have a vision of hell]

“You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.

 To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.

 (Memories of Sister Lucia I; page176 e 177)

In 1940, Sister Lucia wrote a letter to Pope Pius XII asking him to carry out a consecration of the world of The Immaculate Heart of Mary but, at the same time she asked him to make a 2 special mention to Russia”. 


In 1935, Jesus askes the world to be consecrated to His “Holy Mother”:

Jesus to Alexandrina:

«Tell your spiritual Father that, in proof of your love that you dedicate to my Holy Mother, I want an Act of Consecration of the entire world to be done every year in one of the festivities days chosen by you: or Assumption, or Annunciation, praying to this Virgin without a stain of sin which, embarrasses and confuses the impure, in order for them to retreat their path and not to offend me.

As I ask Holy Margarida Maria to be the consecrated world of My Divine Heart, I ask you to be consecrated to Her with a solemn festivity. »

 (30/07/1935; Letters to Father Mariano Pinho; 01/08/1935)


On 3rd May 1941:

Jesus to Alexandrina:

« Tell your Daddy to ask Jesus and Maria to write to the Pope so that He consecrates the world to the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mother. All the Humanity is agonizing under the weight of justice of the Eternal Father. Only She can save them. »

 (Letters to Father Mariano Pinho, 03/05/1941)


Alexandrina has a vision of the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

« So, it was on 9 June 1942 at 13 hours that, above my bed a figure appear to me coming down from Heaven, the stunning figure of Mommy that seems to set in front of me to my left. She was wearing rich glowing dresses from different colours, she was barefoot, she came to me to caress me and with her right hand she pointed to Heaven.

She seemed to be moved with my suffering and, she promise a reward and inspire me trust. The throne that she came on was full of glow with polished gold in which the sun projected his most glowing rays. 

Her consolation, on her first apparition was unspeakable, for few minutes she disappeared to appear again, now closer to be on my right side and I could distinctly see that it was the Immaculate Heart of Mary. She also caressed me like the first time however, she did not pointed to Heaven. Her presence console me deeply and that heavenly consolation remained in my soul, that for a few days I enjoyed the marvellous comfort. This comfort was like a magnet that would take me to Jesus making me feel so dipped in blessedness. »  



«The pain does not ceases, the light does not come: I cannot see where I can run and I a feel such need to hide! I only have safe refugee in the Sacred Heart of my Jesus or in the Sacred Heart of dear Mommy. »   (Letters to Father Mariano Pinho; 24/10/1939)

Alexandrina, in an ecstasy:

« Facing Our Lady she exclaimed like this)


Your blessing, Mommy!

Your forgiveness for the World!

Save, Mommy, save the sinners!

Ask, Mommy, ask for world peace for your pain,

For you Mother’s Heart, do not resist anymore!

Ask Jesus, save Portugal! Send peace to the whole world!

Bless me, Mommy! Give me your love!

I want to love you and my Jesus without limits!

I am going to rest, I am going Mommy!!! »
