Letter of Sr. Lucia to Fr. Aparicio (1927-12-??)

Father Jose Aparicio, S.J. asked Lucia to write down in details the accounts of the apparitions of Pontevedra, especially regarding the request of Our Lady about the Devotion of Reparation, and also to show if they were connected with the messages of 1917.

«Out of humility», Father Aparicio explains, «Sister Lucy showed some reluctance to writing in the first person, to which I responded that she could write in the third person, which she did.»[1]

Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

J. M. J.

On December 17th, 1927, she went before the tabernacle to ask Jesus how she should comply with what had been asked of her, that is, to say if the origin of the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was included in the Secret that the most Holy Virgin had confided to her.

Jesus made her hear very distinctly these words:

My daughter, write what they ask of you. Write also all that the most holy Virgin revealed to you in the Apparition, in which she spoke of this devotion. As for the remainder of the Secret, continue to keep silence.

What was confided on this subject in 1917, is as follows:

She asked for them to be taken to Heaven, and the most holy Virgin answered:

Yes. I will take Jacinta and Francisco soon. But you are to stay here some time longer. Jesus wishes to make use of you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I promise salvation to those who embrace it, and these souls will be loved by God, like flowers placed by me to adorn His throne.

— Am I to stay here all alone? — she asked, sadly.

No, daughter. I shall never forsake you. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God.

On December 10, 1925, the Most Holy Virgin appeared to her, and by Her side, elevated on a luminous cloud, was the Child Jesus. The Most Holy Virgin rested Her hand on her shoulder, and as She did so, She showed her a heart encircled by thorns, which She was holding in Her other hand.

At the same time, the Child said:

Have compassion on the Heart of your most holy Mother, covered with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is no one to make an act of reparation to remove them.

Then the Most Holy Virgin said:

Look, my daughter, at my Heart, surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce me every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console me and say that I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me.

On February 15th, 1926, the Infant Jesus appeared to her again. He asked her if she had already spread the devotion to His most holy Mother. She told Him of the confessor’s difficulties, and said that Mother Superior was prepared to propagate it, but that the confessor had said that she, alone, could do nothing.

Jesus replied:

It is true that your Superior alone can do nothing, but with my grace, she can do all.

She placed before Jesus the difficulty that some people had about confessing on Saturday, and asked that it might be valid to go to confession within eight days.

Jesus answered:

Yes, and it could be longer still, provided that, when they receive Me, they are in the state of grace and have the intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

She then asked:

— My Jesus, what about those who forget to make this intention?

Jesus replied:

They can do so at their next confession, taking advantage of the first opportunity to go to confession.

J. M. J.

No dia 17-12-1927, foi junto do Sacrário perguntar a Jesus como satisfaria o pedido que Ihe era feito, se a origem da devoção ao Imaculado Coração de Maria estava encerrada no segredo que a SS. Virgem Ihe tinha confiado.

Jesus, com voz clara, fez-lhe ouvir estas palavras:

Minha filha, escreve o que te pedem; e tudo que te revelou a SS. Virgem, na aparição em que falou desta devoção, escreve-o também; quanto ao resto do segredo, continua o silêncio.

O que em 1917 foi confiado a este respeito é o seguinte:

ela pediu para os levar para o Céu. A SS. Virgem respondeu:

Sim; a Jacinta e o Francisco levo-os em breve, mas tu ficas cá mais algum tempo. Jesus quer servir-se de ti para Me fazer conhecer e amar. Ele quer estabelecer no Mundo a devoção ao Meu Imaculado Coração. A quem a abraçar, prometo a salvação, e serão queridas de Deus estas almas, como flores postas por Mim a adornar o Seu trono.

— Fico cá sozinha? — disse, com tristeza.

Não, filha. Eu nunca te deixarei. O Meu Imaculado Coração será o teu refúgio e o caminho que te conduzirá até Deus.

Dia 10-12-1925, apareceu-lhe a SS. Virgem e, ao lado, suspenso em uma nuvem luminosa, um Menino. A SS. Virgem, pondo-lhe no ombro a mão e mostrando, ao mesmo tempo, um coração que tinha na outra mão, cercado de espinhos.

Ao mesmo tempo, disse o Menino:

Tem pena do Coração de tua SS. Mãe que está coberto de espinhos que os homens ingratos a todos os momentos Lhe cravam sem haver quem faça um acto de reparação para os tirar.

Em seguida, disse a SS. Virgem:

Olha, minha filha, o Meu Coração cercado de espinhos que os homens ingratos a todos os momentos Me cravam, com blasfémias e ingratidões. Tu, ao menos, vê de Me consolar e diz que todos aqueles que durante 5 meses, no primeiro sábado, se confessarem, recebendo a Sagrada Comunhão, rezarem um Terço e Me fizerem 15 minutos de companhia, meditando nos 15 mistérios do Rosário, com o fim de Me desagravar, Eu prometo assistir-lhes, na hora da morte, com todas as graças necessárias para a salvação dessas almas.

No dia 15-2-1926, apareceu-lhe, de novo, o Menino Jesus. Perguntou se já tinha espalhado a devoção a Sua SS. Mãe. Ela expôs-Lhe as dificuldades que tinha o Confessor e que a Madre Superiora estava pronta a propagá-la, mas que o Confessor tinha dito que ela, só, nada podia.

Jesus respondeu:

É verdade que a tua Superiora, só nada pode; mas, com a Minha graça, pode tudo.

Apresentou a Jesus a dificuldade que tinham algumas almas em se confessar ao sábado e pediu para ser válida a confissão de 8 dias.

Jesus respondeu:

Sim, pode ser de muitos mais ainda, contanto que, quando Me receberem, estejam em graça e que tenham a intenção de desagravar o Imaculado Coração de Maria.

Ela perguntou:

— Meu Jesus, as que se esquecerem de formar essa intenção?

Jesus respondeu:

Podem formá-la na outra confissão seguinte, aproveitando a primeira ocasião que tiverem de se confessar.
