Fr. Ted Kalaw, Superior General of the Clerics Minor Order, celebrated Holy Mass at the Tierra Maria Seminary chapel in Lipa City, after which he incensed the image of Our Lady Mediatrix of All Grace, then consecrated the Order to Our Lady of Fatima.

The next morning, Fr. Ted and some seminarians discovered tears on the cheeks of the Mediatrix image (see photo by Fr. Ted). He said to the seminarians “check out all the possible ways the water may have been coming from.” Later, he said, “I touched it myself and found it was really coming from her eyes.”

Our Lady Mediatrix perhaps has a pandemic message to the Filipino people, a warning, an omen. Her tears are for the sufferings of Filipinos in the worsening pandemic. It is a warning for us to persevere in prayer for the strength to cope, as it may get even worse. It is also a message of hope that her tears say she loves the Filipino people.

It is not the first time that a Mediatrix image shed tears. When Fatima visionary Sister Lucia was dying on February 13, 2005, a Mediatrix devotee said she saw tears of blood on the Mediatrix statue in the Carmelite convent in Lipa City. Lipa is a continuation of Fatima. (Source – Mary Mediatrix of All Grace, by Rene C. de Jesus, available at the Carmelite bookstore if you are a pilgrim.)


A quick history. In 1948, The Virgin appeared many times to a visionary, the late Sr. Teresing Castillo, a postulant of the Carmelite Sisters in Lipa City. The Virgin said she was to be called Our Lady Mediatrix of All Grace. On several occasions, hundreds witnessed showers of rose petals miraculously bearing religious images, like the Holy Trinity and the Last Supper (see photo). Thus, the devotion to the Lady Mediatrix has spread rapidly nationwide in the next few decades.
