The mission of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy is under the spiritual direction of a Catholic priest.
Since this miracle occurred and the mission of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy has taken off around “The World,” those who did not know the Memorare prayer, now know it. Those who said the Rosary on occasion, now say it daily. Those who didn’t know the importance of Our Lady interceding for us, now have a better understanding why we pray to Her. There has not been thousands of “Hits”, but now Tens of Thousands of “Hits” on Our Lady’s website of Her Tear of Joy and hence, thousands and thousands of souls are now coming closer to Our Lady. These are the TRUE MIRACLES, that people are coming closer to Our Lady. Nothing but “Good Fruits” is coming from this mission of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. God Bless to all and enjoy this beautiful miracle story. Arrow >>>———–>

I would like to thank the Blessed Trinity for arranging Our Lady of Joy to come to Rhode Island. Thank you Arrow for your witness to so many souls who came with open and generous hearts to embrace and received Our Lady’s love and her mission!!! I can only begin to mention that so many souls were touched by Arrow’s talk and love for Our Lady. I received many emails stating that their hearts were touched and they are calling on Our Lady now even more in their prayer life.
I received messages of healing of a cataract and sciatica. I also received a message that an older man with Leukemia was facing a difficult surgery that could have left him dead and that the doctors were worried about a blockage in this man’s arterial vessel that would impact his cancer treatment. The man’s son went to his bedside and prayed with the image of Our Lady of Joy and placed it on his body. When the surgeons operated on his vessel there was no sign of any tumor or blockage!!! The son was over joyed with the news!!!
Let us continue to pray for more fruits and the Glory of God to manifest in his people through Our Lady’s mission. Thank you Arrow Osborne for your Fiat and witness. You are truly a vessel of love and mercy for God’s people!!

October 16th, 2019 For 12 year old Gabriel who had cancer a few days ago. He has fought a rare cancer since he was 2 years old. I prayed the Tear of Joy prayer for him placing the prayer card on him in my mind about 3 weeks ago. I live in Massachusetts and mailed the prayer card to Texas recently. I received a message that his father received a phone call today from the doctor. Gabriel is now cancer free and does not need any more chemo. Thank you for the prayers. Thank you Blessed Mother.

October 8th, 2019. The below letter was emailed to Shelia after I gave the talk on Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. Shelia and Fr. Capoverdi sponsored me in bringing the mission of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy to his parish of Immaculate Conception Church in Westerly Rhode Island. The below letter was from a woman by the name of Janet who was at the talk at the church and her husband actually came with her. I was told that her husband did NOT believe and even did not believe in the evil one below. Shelia said that after the talk and people were lining up to hold and venerate the actual image (icon) of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy, Janet’s husband came up and Shelia said and I quote, “He had tears rolling down his cheeks as he took hold of Our Lady’s image.” This man had NOT believed in anything in “YEARS”, no faith or belief in Our Lord and Our Lady, but yet, Our Lady of the Tear of Joy, touched his heart and spoke to him.
Shelia, I am so glad that you shared this evenings service with me. My miracle began yesterday, Sunday. After church I was filled all day and evening overflowing with Our Lady’s love. What an emotional feeling acknowledging who was within my spirit speaking to me, but I was so overwhelmed trying to rationalize who was being healed or who was being blessed and many people needing Our Lady’s blessing came to mind.
Late in the day yesterday, my husband asked me if I was going to the service at Immaculate Conception on Monday night. I said yes I am, will you come with me. He said YES, which was miracle #1 and I then knew Our Lady was blessing my husband and giving me an advance warning. After all of these years Our Lady was answering my prayers tonight BECAUSE thru the years of my busy ministry, Richard would never ever go to any of these services with me, “he does not believe in that stuff”, he not believe in the one down below. My husband was very very blessed this evening and very glad that he went.
I think Richard’s spiritual life is going to change overnight thru Our Lady’s blessing this evening. Thank you Shelia for your friendship. Janet
October 7th, 2019. While giving a talk at Immaculate Conception Church in Westerly Rhode Island, after the talk, people waited in line to hold and venerate the original image (icon) of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. A woman by the name of Maryann came up to me after she had placed Our Lady’s image of her eye. She had been suffering a “detach retina” in her eye and she was describing an annoying light sensation in her peripheral vision. She took Our Lady’s image and placed it on her eye and the light sensation immediately went away and this occurred after taking the icon of Our Lady and placing it on her eye.
Also at this same talk, a woman by the name of Christine told me that about a month ago, somebody gave her an image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and she placed it on her left leg. She was suffering from sciatic nerve pain and it was a ongoing issue. Christine said she had been saying the Memorare prayer and the pain left her and has been gone ever since.

October 3rd, 2019. Dear Arrow, just last night I received a call from my friend Marylin who was with us Friday (9/13) when you and Archbishop Martin DePorres visted our home here in Pennsylvania. She has been suffering from chronic UTI’s (urinary tract infections) since the age of 15 and she is now in her mid 80’s. After praying the Rosary with our small group, holding the icon of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy, and speaking personally with you, she went home filled with a “surreal” peace (which continues to this day). AND, she now acknowledges a miracle for herself, as she has NOT had any symptoms of her previous condition, nor has she taken any medications since that night!!!
In addition, after that Friday, Marylin mailed a ladder Rosary (that I had given her from Medjugorje) and several images of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy to her sister Gail who lives out of state. Although Gail had drifted from the faith, she is now praying the Rosary DAILY, and has those images placed throughout her house!!! (Thanks to the generosity of you, Arrow for giving images to our guests).
One sister healed from physical infirmity and one sister healed from spiritual neglect….. what a blessing! And so the healing continues. Carol – Pennsylvania
October 2nd, 2019. God Bless to all. Every Wednesday I say the Holy Rosary in Michigan and a woman in the group named Linda N from White Lake Michigan, told me what occurred with her about 3 week ago while she was with her family in Washington State at a park. She got stung by a bee and her lip started to swell and then her speech became very impaired and they were in a State park miles away from anything. Linda said she had the image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy in her purse and she placed her hand on her purse and started to say the Memorare prayer. Then….. the swelling started to go down almost immediately. God Bless to all, Arrow >>>———>
September 14th, 2019. While I was giving a talk at Our Mother of Perpetual Help Church in Ephrata Pennsylvania, I was telling everybody that one of the messages Our Lady gave was that, She like for us to kiss Her image (photo) and then place Our Lady image on the left side of our cheek and She will give you a kiss back. After my talk, I had a nun from Poland whom was present by the name of Sister Serafina and she came up to me and told me what occurred with her during my talk. She said, “When you were telling us to kiss Our Lady’s picture and then place it on the left side of our cheek and She will kiss us back, I did this and I could feel Our Lady’s presence and I could actually feel Our Blessed Mother kiss me back.
Then I had a woman from the Philippines named Leonila (Linda) who was also present come up to me after the talk and say how she had sent Our Lady’s image to a man in the Philippines who was atheist. She then learned that he had a “Spiritual Conversion” wanting to know Our Lord. Our Lady has said in repeated messages that Her image will bring about “Physical healing’s and Spiritual Conversions.”
God Bless to all, Arrow
I received a phone call today (August 23rd, 2019) from Fr. Sam who lives in Ridgetown Ontario Canada. He told me the following true story. He said he received a phone call from a woman by the name of Grace and that her daughter named Sophia was in the hospital in Chatham and was in labor with her baby. Grace went onto say how Sophia was in a great deal of pain and that the baby had turned. The doctors immediately wanted to do a C section, but Sophia wanted to give birth naturally. Grace asked Fr. Sam to pray with her over the phone for a miracle to happen. Fr. Sam told Grace that he had the image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy in front of him and Fr. Sam told Grace and I quote, “I have the picture in front of me and we are going to say the Memorare prayer together” and they did. Fr. Sam said that Grace called him back with great excitement saying how the baby had turned and Sophia had delivered her baby naturally. Fr. Sam told me on the phone and I quote, “This is another victory for Our Lady of the Tear of Joy.” God Bless to all, Arrow
August 13th, 2019 Hello Arrow. Just letting you know that we had a beautiful miracle happen through Our Lady Tear of Joy!! I gave some prayer cards of Our Lady to a dear friend of mine last week and over the weekend her 15 year old grandson Nathan was critically injured with head trauma from hockey accident!! By the time he got to the trauma unit he had blood coming out of his eyes and doctors were worried about skull fracture or bleed. I called my friend and told her to bring the image and place it on his head and pray!! She did just that!!! He is home and without fracture no bleed and trauma docs told her he should have been like a vegetable with the degree of his injury. News is spreading to devotion to her. Praise God and thank you Blessed Mother!!!!

Yesterday (August 11th, 2019), I received a phone call from Carole T in Ballston Lake New York. She was asking for prayers for her cancer and she was telling me how she offers up her pain for other people, whom she will never meet but clearly understands the graces of offering up her pain. She then told me how her brother whose name is Edward M and lives in Burnt Hills New York, was diagnosed with kidney failure around Easter time and started kidney dialysis treatments. Carole said that she sent her brother the image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and told him on the phone to place Our Lady’s image on himself. Edward told her he had been and was placing Our Lady’s image all over his body and was also saying the Memorare prayer. Carole went onto say how Edward was telling her how he will never get off of the kidney dialysis. Then………. Edward called her a few weeks later saying he no longer needed the kidney dialysis treatments and he and his wife is calling it an “Absolute Miracle.” God Bless to all, Arrow >>>———–>
How Our Lady Tear of Joy answered an SOS CALL!!
I was recently working the night shift at the hospital and we had a nurse who was called in for a patient who missed their morning dialysis session.
Donna (the nurse) told me she had just returned home from a 6 hour drive when she got the call to come to work . As we continued our
conversation , she suddenly burst into tears and said her 12 year old grandchild was suicidal, mostly due to peer pressure at school from gender confused groups seeking to promote and sway other students to join them.
Donna and her husband were helping her son’s family while their grandchild was undergoing treatment .
I could feel this beautiful grandmother’s pain, sorrow, and grief. At the same moment, I also felt Our Lady nudging me to introduce her as Our Lady Tear of Joy .
I instantly told her I had something to give her, a miracle IMAGE!!
While going out to my car to get her the image, I stopped in the break room to talk to a coworker and soon after I heard my name being called from the hallway … “come out here right away”.
When both of us stepped out we found all our other coworkers in a circle holding hands, so we quickly joined them without question, but you could feel the urgency in their voices as we were told Donna’s grandchild had just gone missing.
My heart dropped but prayer was immediately started in the circle. It included young coworkers that I know do not even attend a church.
We hugged and supported Donna and comforted her the best we knew humanly how.
I made it a priority and went to my car to retrieve the images of Our Lady along with a Blessed Rosary from Medjugorje that Arrow had given me, as well as a third class relic from a saint. I stopped at the chapel on my way back and dropped to my knees and begged Our Lord and Our Lady to find this young little one alive and well.
After returning from the chapel I went to bring the image of our Lady Tear of Joy to Donna and I saw that the our patient was experiencing an anxiety attack that usually took place during treatments.
I offered the patient a copy of the image and without hesitation Our LADYS Image was placed over their heart and what I witnessed was instant calming way before medicine had a chance to take affect.
Donna was getting multiple phone calls and appropriately took them in the hallway.
She returned after the last call and told me her grandchild was found on the side of a road in the dark, and in the best condition possible and they were being taken to the hospital. It was Donna’s husband that actually found this precious child.
She was overcome with relief and gratitude to Our Lord and Our Lady. She told us that she knew she had come here for a reason and that all of us gave her something she knew she could only get here from this hospital. “There’s no coincidence that I am here!!” It had seemed the patient did miss her own dialysis but God turned it into good.
So , Our Lord and Our Lady-worked on all of our behalves that night… but it was under the title of Our Lady Tear of Joy that she interceded !!
She wanted it that way!!
That’s why she is SO SO SENSATIONAL!!
Thankyou Mother for answering our distress call.
After the good news we wrote prayers of thanksgiving in our chapels prayer request book. A coworker copied our petitions and gave them to Donna so she could read them later. I have truly never seen a tragic life threatening situation turn around so suddenly.
She said I will never forget what happened here and left with a smile and tears of joy as we all told her we would continue to be in prayer for a full healing.
Thank you to Our Lady Tear of Joy!!
She comforted all of us that night and I will never forget it!!
I can confirm that after the nurse left for home my coworkers and I experienced a Joy…a peace …a calm after the storm …it was pure GRACE!!

Just wanted to give a testimony for myself and baby granddaughter!
I received the box of pictures of OUR LADY TEAR OF JOY from you about six months ago!
During that time my daughter was told by her pediatrician that the baby had a lazy eye and if it didn’t get any better in a few months she would need an operation!
So I immediately put a picture of our lady on her eye and said the memorare and ask our lady to help her, she was so little and an operation sounded pretty scary!
One month later the doctor told her, no operation was needed, as she thought it was just extra skin around the eye!
So we went from a definite operation to this diagnosis!
I know it was our Lady answering my prayer!
And for myself, I have been suffering with foot pain for about six months, doing various therapy and doc appointments, with no good results!
As I always do I offered it for the conversion of sinners and eventually decided to place the picture on my foot and pray if it was GODS will thru our Lady’s intercession perhaps I could be without pain!
Two days after I did that, I have very little pain left!
Thanks be to our Lady and her intercession for me and my granddaughter!
I love our Lady so much she always comes through for me in my time of anguish!
Thank you so much for the pictures and the prayers!
June 30th, 2019. God Bless to all. In June of last year (2018), I went to the State of Indiana to a farm and that there was a farmer who has a Chapel built on his property and he has a rosary group that meets there once to twice a week. I went there and presented the story of “Our Lady of the Tear of Joy to them” and gave them the image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. In the group there is a locutionist (one who gets inner messages from either Our Lord or Our Lady). After returning home and two days later, I received a phone call that a message was given by Our Blessed Mother to this locutionist and that Our Blessed Mother wanted a “Larger image of Her to be displayed in the Chapel.” I was told that they were going to scan one of the smaller images of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy to make up the larger images. I told them, “No, I’ll have it done.” I had 5 8×10’s made of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy made up and went back to Indiana to present it to the group. Two of the 8×10’s stayed inside the Chapel and three were given to people in the rosary group.
Dear Arrow, I hope u will remember our lovely conversation that you gave me so much of your time to answer that if I touched my dads photo to Our Lady of the Tear of Joy prayer card, would that be okay to ask for his healing from cancer. My journey began there…… dad being depressed and ill and never one for prayer, I knew I needed a miracle for him, the same week you sent Our Lady’s image to me and then treasures of the church came to our area. I attended 3 times each time granted a planetary indulgence. I went to confession for the first time in 25 plus years and received communion in a state of grace. I then placed this blessed card of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy under dads mattress and left it there. Well, after April’s doctor’s visit and rounds of immunotherapy, chemo, radiation and the Blessed heavenly kingdom, the doctor told him to go home and celebrate because there had been a dramatic and significant improvement that surprised the doctor. He still has it but the scans are showing it clearing. I ask the Lord each day to whisper in my ear how I may repay this enormous favor because others may pray for miracles when hope is fading too. Jesus is the ultimate doctor and Our Lady is happy to bring our intentions to her son for us. Barbara T – New York
I work in a store and I am always praying for customers. A woman came in the store on a Friday about six weeks ago and she had six incisions from a surgery on her stomach and they were infected and she actually raised her shirt showing me how infected they were. I went and got the photo of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy, gave it to her and told her to say the Memorare prayer. She came back in on Monday and said, “Oh my God, I am all healed, I am all healed. I took the photo and placed it on my stomach and said the Memorare prayer and I was healed.” – Betty P. Windsor Ontario Canada
Our Lady has said about Her image (photo), “This image will bring Spiritual healing’s to people who are touched with My image.” And the following story is just confirmation of Our Lady’s message. Phil Wayes from Pennsylvania called me today and told me the most beyond beautiful story of Our Lady’s intercession. Before I go into that, Phil was baptized into the Catholic church this past Easter Sunday. Phil is one of Our Lady’s miracle stories and his story is listed on the “Testament” page of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy website. Phil called me today about Our Lady’s intercession. First let me back up. I drove to Pennsylvania the first weekend in February to meet with Phil and his wife and also to give a talk on Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and then I was going to New York city.
God Bless to all. While I was in Boston, a miracle occurred while saying the Holy Rosary with a group of women. It was decided that this was a private revelation for those present and I spoke to the spiritual director of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and spoke to him of the miracle and that I wanted to share it with a few people, but keep it private for now. This was on Saturday April 13th, 2019. Well, late last night (Thursday April 18th), I received a text from Yolanda in Boston saying, “She’s back tonight and Padre Pio too.” I called Yolanda and she put me on speaker and I also spoke with Lauren. They proceeded to tell me that the Blessed Mother is appearing on the wall again, as well as St. Padre Pio. I asked Yolanda did she want me to share this story with everybody and she said, “Yes” and that, “Everybody needs to know about Our Blessed Mother.” So, very true, for Our Blessed Mother is Our Heavenly Mother, She is the Mother of God, She is the Queen of Heaven, She is our strongest advocate anybody would want on their side. I called the spiritual director to obtain his permission to release this story to “The World” and he approved.
The following miracle story is how everything occurred in sequence leading up to the miracle:
I went to Boston to give a talk on the miracle story of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. Upon arrival in Boston on Friday April 12th, I met a woman by the name of Yolanda and I was taken to a house to have the original image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy placed against a woman who has been suffering from an illness. Upon arrival at the home, I met with a woman who is home bound and she was lying in bed. I gave her the original image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and she immediately started smiling, it was clear Our Lady was touching her heart. We prayed the Memorare prayer over her and stayed with her for awhile. The following day (Saturday), I was meeting with people about Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. Several women had decided to go back to the woman’s house who is home bound and have dinner there and it will give us the opportunity to visit with her again.
We had dinner and were in the dining room and after dinner I was telling the women how when I was in Medjugorje, I was with my friend Mike from Connecticut and Jim from New York. We were in our bedroom and were talking about Our Lady and St. Padre Pio and all of the sudden, the most beautiful colors came in the room from the outside window and these beautiful colors started to pulsate off the wall. I took my cell phone and took a picture of these now beautiful colors pulsating off the wall in the room. What I caught on my camera was Our Blessed Mother and St. Padre Pio. The colors did not appear in the photo. Maria who sitting next to me at the dining table, then proceeded to tell me how she prays to Our Lady of Guadalupe and she has a strong devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Present at the table with me was, Yolanda, Lauren, Maria, Pat and Martha.
I then said to the ladies, “Let’s say a rosary” and the time was approximately 8:15pm. I had the original image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy sitting on the table in front of us. We started saying the rosary and a dark shadow of an image started to appear on the wall in the dining room. Several of us noticed it and we continued saying the rosary and the shadow became more and more clear, until it became a full size image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I called the spiritual director of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and advised him on the miracle occurring in front of us. I then said, “We need to continue to say the rosary.” Only a few minutes later, another dark shadow appeared on the wall to the left of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe and it became the very clear image of Saint Padre Pio. At this point, all of us were on our knees praying and another woman named Elizabeth arrived and saw the images of Our Lady and St. Padre Pio.
The woman who is suffering from the illness was in the very next room lying in bed. All of us went in her bedroom and placed the original image of Our Lady on her and said the Memorare prayer. All the women who were present for this miracle, have a direct role in the constant care of the woman who is suffering and they all have a strong devotion to Our Blessed Mother. I adamantly believe there is a connection with the woman who is suffering and Our Lady’s appearance. I also go back to the day before, when I handed the woman the original image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and her face immediately started smiling and I don’t think, “I know Our Lady was touching her.”
There are other denominations of faith who are following this miracle story of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. Padre Pio was a priest in Italy who died in 1968 and he suffered the wounds of Christ and his hands actually bleed from about age 18 until his death at the age of 81. He had a VERY strong devotion to Our Blessed Mother and Her intercession for our salvation. It does NOT surprise me, that only 3 years earlier in Medjugorje, myself, Mike and Jimmy were talking about Our Lady and St. Pio and the miracle occurred in the room and I still have the miracle photo from that day. Then right before the Rosary, Maria was telling me about her devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe. It’s like Yolanda told me, “Everybody needs to know about Our Blessed Mother.”
Our Blessed Mother appeared directly above a vase of tulips that was up against the wall, you can see it in the picture. In the photo of Padre Pio, you can see the hand of a woman and we were on our knees giving thanks, not only to Our Lady for giving us this miracle sign, but also to Our Lord, for He allows His Mother to come to us. What you can’t see in the photos, there was a white aurora light around Our Lady and St. Padre Pio, you can see a rosary in his hand and it was dangling down.
When you think Our Lord and Our Lady are not listening when you pray, when you think you are simply going through the motions when you pray and nothing really is happening, think again because Our Lord and Our Lady are RIGHT THERE WITH YOU, listening to everything you are saying to them. Never doubt this for a single second. never doubt it. God Bless to all, Arrow >>>—————->

Asking to be a channel of His Will I’d like to share my experience while I was in possession of the Tear of Joy blessed photo I received from Beth Marie Ledford.
On learning my children who had been unsuccessful in producing a child after several pregnancies and 12 years of marriage, were pregnant again, Beth sent a blessed photo of The Mother Tear of Joy. I hung the photo in a frame on my bedroom wall and prayed every morning for a healthy and vibrant baby. My prayers were answered July 8 2018. A gorgeous nine pound baby girl, they’ve named Grace Eloise. Shortly after our gift from God; my dear friend Una Grace learned her granddaughter was to have bedrest during her last trimester of pregnancy due to some high risk. I sent the blessed photo to Una who sent it to her Granddaughter Alyce. Her pregnancy went full term and she delivered a healthy baby boy with no complications. We all give our undying love and gratitude.
As a proud MerMer, I’m sending photos, of course. 🥰🥰
That night, my husband who works afternoons, had come home. He used to be a Licensed Nurse some years ago and when I told him about my cut and what happened, he asked to see it. I was hesitant to remove the bandage for I didn’t want it to open up. The bruising surrounding it exceeded the bandage itself. He looked at it. I saw it was still separated, but was not bleeding. He said “that’s probably going to need a stitch or two. I’ll take you right now if you want.” I said calmly, “No, God is going to heal it.” I had many things to do at my parish that weekend and I just gave it to Him. I was concerned though, as it did not appear to be healing in size or statue and occasionally some fluid was on the bandage, when I changed it.
On my way to morning Mass the next day, I asked God with all sincerity, why it was not healing. I felt quite plainly, because I had not asked Him to heal it. I only had asked Him to stop the blood. Lesson learned I thought. In my car, I had a picture of “Our Lady Tear of Joy”, I looked at it and when I had parked my car in the church parking lot that morning, I picked it up and held the image of Our Lady Tear of Joy over my wound. I prayed words that I am unable to remember word for word, but they were full of invoking Our Lady Tear of Joy to go before Our Lord to attain it’s healing. I felt a warmth and a love pour out upon just the wounded area and it felt as if a seam had been placed over it. I was filled with peace and gratitude as I knew it was healed. It no longer looked like a concern that it would continue opening and I was very grateful.Lessons I learned:
One don’t leave glass items out through the harsh winter weather :)Haha! Which is true, but not related to where He wants me to go with this!
Real Lesson 1) Look for God in everything.
2)God hears all prayers and will answer them. Be specific in what you ask, nothing is ever to small, never underestimate God, He can and will do all things, ask big! God is able to do all things, if we place our trust in Him.
3)Continue to live life doing good out for love of Our Lord and He will always be near, to heal, to help, to console, to fulfill.
4)Pray to bring a Tear of Joy to heaven at least once each day!
Just prior to Mass, I met a man by the name of Paul and he proceeded to tell me how back in October he was in the hospital and a nurse who was assigned to him, came in his hospital room gave him the image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. He said the nurse explained to him the full miracle story and how miracles are now occurring with this image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and she said “The picture was Blessed by a priest.” Paul said that same night, in the middle of the night, Our Lady appeared to him in his hospital room and Our Lady did not say anything to him, Our Lady simply stood at the foot of his bed smiling at him. Paul went onto say that, “Because of that nurse giving me the picture of Our Blessed Mother and this happening to me, that is why I came back to the church.” Paul – New Baltimore Michigan
My name is Renee…. and I am from Michigan.
I am writing this beautiful story with great joy in my heart.BACKGROUNDWhen I was younger age 11- through 14 I was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis . After my parents explored all options through the arthritis foundation they were then introduced to the charismatic healing masses by my dear relatives Living in Canada….. so my whole family once a month would go to the healing masses…. for those of you that know father Sam From Canada I have had conversation with him and we do both believe he must have prayed over me at one of these healing masses 40 years ago. So the story continues… yes I had received healing from the Holy Spirit and my doctors could not believe I was no longer going into a wheelchair and that my hands were not crippled any longer.THE PARTY
So back in September 2018 I decided to have a birthday party for the Blessed mother on September 8th…… I had already had all the blue decorations and for some reason 59 blue and white balloons ( enough to make a rosary out of) and I ordered a special cake along with Mediterranean food just for OUR LADY.
The guest we’re very diversified…. all week prior to the party OUR LADY was giving me an Exclusive invitation list ( not the usual people I would have invited ).
The music ministry John and Rene provided beautiful songs of Mary and even a HAPPY BIRTHDAY SONG before blowing out candles!!
THE MIRACLE HEALING
Well , here’s the BEST part…. my cousins granddaughter Alyssa a two year old was at the party. SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH idiopathic juvenile arthritis ….I invited her mom Julie and she brought Alyssa knowing this was a special party and knowing about my healing as a child.
Allysa helped blow out the the candles on OUR LADYS CAKE( pictured below ).
It was weeks later when I felt the urge to text Julie her mom…. I was overjoyed at what she was saying about Allysa!!!She said she saw signs of great improvement in her daughter immediately following the party that very week!!
Word was getting around and I had spoken to my uncle who is Alyssa‘s grand father and he said it’s a miracle she dances she’s happy…. she’s definitely different and doing physical things she didn’t do before. For my uncle to say it’s a miracle believe me it is!!
So I asked Arrow if he could bring the original image of our lady tear of joy to Allysa’s home.
When I went to pray over her with anointed oil and the image she rested peacefully in the Holy Spirit in my arms( A 2 year old resting!!).
She wasn’t afraid she didn’t cry for her mom, she barely moved.
Immediately afterwards she started dancing in her kitchen and kissing the image of OUR LADY TEAR of JOY.
Her mom Julie informed me that they haven’t had to give her the pain medicine and that she was only receiving the weekly injection… and to this day no pain medication.
The doctors saw major improvements!! I believe after visiting and talking to her mom Julie that a complete full healing is on the way .So please pray for this Beautiful little angel who had healing immediately after the party for Our Lady on September 8th 2018.
In the picture below Alyssa was blowing out the candles of our ladies cake and I didn’t notice till weeks later when I zoomed in that she had put three pink rosaries around her neck. Her mother stated she didn’t remember her even doing that… but Our Lady was watching the whole time.
I know OUR LADY Tear of Joy interceded for this miracle!!
There were other miracles that day also, some were instant … and some came later.
I can’t wait to see what OUR LADY will do next … she is a truly a mother who wants to see her children healed and will go to her son our loving Savior and make Her request known.
Thank you TO OUR LADY TEAR OF JOY!!
This is Steve – The Ohio computer guy
In July of 2018, I received a call from a colleague that I have known for nearly 40 years. Normally the call is very jovial with lots of laughs and talking about all the fun stuff that we have done.
This call was very different. When I answered the phone, I got a very somber version of Mike that I rarely hear. He said “Steve I have bad news – I am not doing too well.” Mike went on to tell me that ten days earlier at a doctor appointment that was prompted by a backache from playing racquetball – the doctors found cancer in my body. I remember Mike saying “ Steve it is not a tiny area it’s all over, my brain, my legs, my liver its everywhere.” He continued by saying ”its stage four melanoma cancer and there are some treatments but the outlook is not good.”
Being great friends, Mike shared that I was one of the first ones he called. He told me he was in shock and wasn’t in the mood to talk to many – he went on to say his wife Deb and kids were just stunned by the whole thing. Newly retired, new grandkids, new house on the lake – has everything and now this.
I got off the phone and told my wife Liz about the news – she too was shocked. I googled the topic and read that few people survive this. After a short time, Liz says to me “when are you leaving to see him?” She knew exactly what I was thinking.
I figured since Mike’s time was short I had one opportunity to do this. So on August 7th, off I went on my 700 mile round trip to see him. I had a very nice dinner with him and Deb and after dinner I started to share the mission Arrow and I have been on since September 8th, 2017. For the next 4 hours we talked about the power of Our Lady and Her ability to intercede for us. They heard the whole story and all the miracles. We prayed the Memorare holding Our Lady’s image and Mike was anointed with Our Lady’s Tears. Armed with miraculous medals and rosaries touched by Our Lady in Medjugoje – Mike and Deb felt like they had a place to turn for help. And they did just that.
About two weeks later Mike called me and he sounded better. In fact, he said “can you send me more rosaries and medals? ” He went on to say.” I have been sharing this story and the story is so amazing that grown men are brought to tears when I tell him about your visit and mission.”
The following month I get a text from his wife Deb and she tells me the treatment is taking a toll on Mike. His emotions are like a roller coaster and he is sleeping a lot. We agree that we need to keep praying. I asked the Michigan rosary group, people in the Philippines and others for help. I started to fast twice a week for the intention of his healing and during weekly adoration asked Jesus for help. Even in my absence his name was written in the rosary petition book.
And then things change. In September Debbie sends me a note. His test results are suddenly moving in the other direction. In fact, the doctors are a little surprised. She writes:
Omg!!!! Great News!! We are at the hospital and all of Mike’s labs came back and most of his numbers have improved substantially. They said the treatment has already started to work in his system. The Dr was so happy and was hugging us and even called in his other Oncologist that shook Mike’s hand. This has been the very first time in 2 months that we received good news. Just hearing that he is responding so quickly to these drugs is a miracle. All of those prayers are helping him – thank God and thank Mother Mary!!
In October Debbie writes me the following update:
Steve – those prayers ALL work and are being heard and I’m so incredibly grateful to you. As I told Kari today about her dad’s good report she said to make sure I let YOU know right away because you’ve truly made an impact on our family with your faith and giving us hope. The message you gave us Steve has truly changed the way I pray. I feel like I pray so much more deeply and I feel like I have a true connection with Mother Mary. When I got the news today, I went outside and cried and instantly thanked Mother Mary. When I pray it’s not like I’m reciting a prayer but truly talking to her. It’s a wonderful feeling and it’s because of you. I talk to Mike a lot about praying and I believe he’s finding more comfort from doing so. I love the book that Liz sent because each day I read that days verse to Mike. I went out and bought that same book this week to send to a friend of mine who has cancer. I just wanted you to know what you have done for both of us and how truly grateful we are to have you as a dear dear friend. And then she sends me this image of Mike in the hospital. And says we take her with us where ever we go!
And then theNovember update comes:
“Another update on Mike – we got the best news yet. His brain scan and Pet scan results were truly unbelievable. The Dr said he is 90-95% cancer free and that she has never had a patient respond so well to the Immunotherapy as Mike has. He does have a spot in his liver that she wants to have a biopsy on just to make sure it is melanoma and not another type of cancer – she’s not very worried about it and believes that the monthly Immunotherapy treatment he continues to get will take care of it. We are all so relieved and ecstatic at this wonderful news and extremely grateful to God and Mother Mary for giving us this second chance at life. Like the Dr said – this is your Christmas miracle!!
In December Mike enjoys his daughter’s wedding especially the father daughter dance:
January26th update from Mike:
Your prayers have had a real impact Steve. I received a call from my oncologist after hours yesterday. She was ecstatic. Told me that the results from the body scan that I had on Tuesday were in and it appeared that my cancer was virtually gone. Unbelievable!!!
Thanks for your continuing thoughts and prayers Steve. Mother Mary has interceded. What a blessing. Trying to figure out why me? To be determined!
Love you Steve!
Thank You Mother Mary!
Bless to all. I have been on the phone twice with a man by the name of Phil Wayes from East Stroudsburg Pennsylvania. We spoke briefly yesterday and a great deal of time on the phone today. After speaking with him, I asked him could I use his full name for this miracle story and share it with the world and he said, “Sure, whatever you think is important, it’s all true.” Here is the sequence of events of how this miracle occurred and how I was informed about it. Mike Stanton from Lakeville Connecticut called me on Tuesday (January 1st, 2019) and said, “Arrow, your going to be getting a phone call from a guy from Pennsylvania. I gave him your phone number and the Blessed Mother appeared to him 7 years ago and he just saw the miracle image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy on my face book site. I posted the miracle story on my face book page and he saw Our Lady’s image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. This guy is adamant this photo of Our Lady is the Blessed Mother who appeared to him.
Hello Arrow, Hope you are keeping well, just thought that I would like to send you a Christmas card and to thank you for sending my friend Derek Sankey the retired Deacon all those photo images of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy, 500 of them and pleased to tell you I managed to distribute all of them out to different areas such as Ireland, the Isle of Man Chester and 4 churches in my home town Warrington. I gave one to a friend from Sacred Heart Church who has cancer on the lung. I told her to put the picture on her lung everyday, which she did. She had to go for her x-ray results and was told that the cancer had gone, the nurse said she has never see anything like it before. She has to go for another test but has not heard anything yet. Elizabeth said she doesn’t feel ill at all so please will you say a prayer for her. Have a wonderful Christmas & New Year. Elaine Merriman – England”
Bless to all. I go to 8am Holy Mass every morning at my parish of St. Joseph Church here in Maumee. After Mass this morning, a parishioner by the name of Frank W told me the following story and asked me to share it. Frank went onto say how his niece by the name of Wendy from Missouri was in town about a month ago with her 4 year old son by the name of Peter. Peter was born with severe kidney problems and his kidney’s are constantly “failing” even with a simple cold or flu. Peter has been hospitalized numerous times because of this health issue. About a month ago while visiting family here in Maumee, Peter became ill and his kidney’s had stop functioning. He was hospitalized here in Toledo at the Children’s ward. Frank got a image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and gave it to the family to place on Peter. Peter made a recovery and returned with his family back to Missouri and he has had “No Problems” with his kidney’s since being back. Frank went onto say that the family is giving the healing of Peter to the intercession of Our Blessed Mother. God Bless to all, Arrow >>>—————->
God Bless to all. On Tuesday October 2nd, 2018, I received a typed letter from a woman by the name of JoAnn from Michigan. With her approval, I am allowed to release the letter she wrote, word for word and I told her I would not include her last name. When I received the letter, I immediately emailed her asking her to call me right away and she did today, October 4th, 2018. JoAnn and I have had several phone conversations already today. After speaking to JoAnn, I also immediately called the spiritual director of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and briefed him on what JoAnn said and I will be sending him the actual letter with Joann’s full contact information.
The below story highlighted in “Blue”, is the letter from JoAnn. Her son Conner age 16 attempted suicide in May shooting himself in the face under his chin. JoAnn proceeded to tell me that she had the image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and had been placing it on Conner’s face. JoAnn said Conner has had a miraculous conversion and she went onto say that the doctor said he is healing faster than expected. JoAnn said that Conner feels and I quote, “Love, Confident & Strong. He is being healed and there is light in his eyes.” JoAnn said she gives all credit to the intercession of Our Lady.
Again, JoAnn said she was placing Our Lady’s image on Conner’s face. Let me close with a quote from JoAnn’s letter she wrote to me, “The Memorare Prayer really does work. I’m never going to be done saying it until my last breath.”
God Bless to all and when you think you are utterly alone or your prayers are not being answered. Yes they are and when Our Lady intercedes for us, She “Does” take our prayers to Her Son and it is His choosing, time and place, “His Will” on how and when our prayer will be answered. There is one person Our Lord will not say no to, and that is His Mother.
I’m writing you for 2 reasons. First, I am a true believer of the Memorare Prayer! Back in May my oldest son, Conner 16, attempted suicide with a gun under his chin. With the grace of God, Mother Mary, angels and saints he is still with us today. It is a miracle that only his physical face was harmed. He has not had any major surgery’s yet, first one is October 18, but I say the Memorare Prayer every day asking Mother Mary to heal his face to what it was before his moment of despair. I thought I was seeing with a mother’s heart to say he really looks like my Conner, but all my friends and family members tell me it’s not just you, we see it too. The Memorare Prayer really does work. I’m never going to be done saying it until my last breath.
Second, I need prayers sent my way. Conner has 20 or more surgeries (1st major one Oct. 18) in a 2 year span to complete his transformation. Conner has always had a place for God in his life. He attended church youth groups every week and was a junior leader for Sunday mass. I still can’t wrap my head around his dark loneliness with so many people who love him. Since his attempt a new found peace in life and a will to live for God is with him. I’m asking you and your prayer groups out there to help us pray for continual healing physically and spiritually. Saying he’s going to be going through some rough procedures is an exaggeration. It’s going to be testing his faith and well being. I break down often and cry, but I know God has wonderful plans for all of us. I need prayers to pour down on Conner, me, my husband and his little brother. Thank you for your time to read this and your dedication to Mother Mary for all of us to grow and learn from and experience her miracles. JoAnn P Warren/Mi
My granddaughter’s name is Kaydance and she is 5 months old and was born with severe kidney issues. It has been a ongoing battle trying to get the kidney’s to function properly. Several ultra tests have been done and the decision was made that she was to be put under so a more in-depth medical procedure could be done. All the while as this has been going on, I took Our Lady’s image of Her Tear of Joy and laid it on the picture of my granddaughter and have been saying the Memorare prayer. They recently did another ultra test before having to start the procedure and her kidney’s are getting better and the medical procedure they were going to do was cancelled. Thank you Blessed Mother for interceding. – Steve G/Michigan
The below miracle story was emailed to me from my brother in Christ Ray LaFleur in NewFoundland, Canada. Like all miracle stories reported to me, I like to make contact and get more insight behind the miracle. Ray told me that the family is Protestant but was receptive on getting Our Lady’s image of the Tear of Joy. The wife had applied for over 50 jobs over the last several months with no response and they were out of money. They received Our Lady’s image and said the Memorare prayer. The wife then got a job offer. But the story gets better, they have on the side of their house a statue of Our Blessed Mother with a Rose bush next to Her. Over the last 5 years, the rose bush has produced “No” Roses and NOW……….. 5 Roses have appeared on the bush and this is in “Newfoundland” in October even!!! Newfoundland is one of the very northwest providences in Canada – gets cold early. I know all those reading this are calling out to Our Lady and you want your prayers answered. Believe me when I say, I am with you. There is a very personal issue going on in my life for 8 years now that I am praying for. However, Our Lord and Our Lady DOES HEAR OUR PRAYERS and please believe when I say this and I have received confirmation on this. It is Our Lords’ “Will and Timing”, not ours. In each and every persons life, Our Lord has laid out a plan for us, for our salvation and that he wants us to stand in front of Him one day and He will give you a warm embrace saying, “My Child, you carried your Cross which gave me overwhelming Joy, now come with me into my Kingdom.” And you will immediately be overwhelmed with “Peace, Joy & Love” and it won’t last for a few minutes or even a couple of hours, but forever!!!!! Each day, offer up your Cross’s you are carrying to Our Lord and Our Lady, they will then apply the graces of your suffering you just offered up, to somebody who is about to die and it will be applied towards their salvation. This is what “Victim Souls” do, when they suffer. Also in return for all that you offered up, you will get little graces in your life or if you don’t see it in this life, it will be applied to your salvation when you stand in front of Our Lord. So, please be patient, your prayers ARE BEING HEARD. Our Lord’s “Will”, not ours. When you think your prayer is not being heard by Our Lady, “Oh yes She is.” God Bless to all and please enjoy the beautiful below miracle story. Arrow >>>—————>
This is Mary Ann Stulz. I was the one who had the neighbor across the street, Don Wilkins, who has serious cancer. Don is a non-practicing Catholic who has fallen away from the church.
I saw your name out on the website, I called and asked if you would pray while I visited Don. I mentioned that I plan to take the picture of “Mary With The Tear” to Don (When I got there, I asked Don where he wanted me to placed it. Don himself took the picture and placed it on his belly where the major turmor is located.) and I prayed the Memorare prayer two times. Then, you were also so kind to ask your 100 prayer warriors to also pray. I visited Don on two occasions and did the same thing. On the second time, I left the picture with him and the Memorare prayer as well.
Drum roll…… Arrow, between you, and your prayer warriors, I have good news to tell you. Followup tests were done on Don last week and he got the results yesterday. There are many cancer tumors that are totally gone now (it’s like they never existed) and the major tumor that they were mainly concerned about has significantly reduced in size. His blood work also looks so much better. The doctors, Don and his wife were amazed and so pleased with the results and the change. Don asked me to tell you all his good news. Also, Don has more life to him now! Thank you SO MUCH for everything you all did.
I asked his wife if Don has again placed the picture on himself and said the prayer. She is not sure, for he would be very private about it and not tell her at all. I so much hope Don is doing this on his own. Wouldn’t that be cool! PLEASE, PLEASE, Can you PLEASE ask your prayer warriors to continue to pray for Don Wilkins?
Thank you all SO MUCH!
God Bless to all. Last night I received an email from a woman named Mary from Wilder Kentucky asking for prayers and that she was going to pray over a man by the name of Don today at 11am EST. In Mary’s email she stated that she would be praying over Don with the image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. After speaking with Mary today and with her permission I am allowed to let everybody know what occurred today. Mary said that she met with Don and his wife Sherri and Don is battling cancer and has yet to go thru several more chemo treatments. Mary said that Don took Our Lady’s image and placed it on his stomach where the tumor is located. Mary stated that she said the Memorare prayer twice and his wife Sherri simply listened. Afterwards, Mary said that nothing really happened, she prayed over Don and she spoke to Don about Our Lady intervening in our prayers and taking them to Her Son.

God Bless to all. Please follow me on the time line here. This past weekend as you know, I had the honor and privilege of going to see my brother’s and sisters in Christ in the Great Country of Canada and being with Fr. Sam who is a most Holy Priest. I then went to Windsor to be with Jeff & Sue’s group. I got back to Maumee Ohio late on Monday night. Today (Friday July 13th), I went to Our Lady of Consolation Shrine in Carey Ohio and I simply walked the Rosary park spending time with Our Lord and Our Lady saying the Rosary. The presence of Our Lord and Our Lady is so overwhelming there. I got back around 4pm and came in the house. Then I thought, “Oh man, the images of Our Lady is still in the trunk of my car since the weekend.” When I went to Canada, I took with me about 7,000 images of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and was passing them out before each Mass and they were already Blessed. When I went to my car and opened the trunk, the images of Our Lady was in two boxes. Carrying them in, I could clearly smell Roses and they were coming from the Boxes. Thank you Blessed Mother for the mission you have entrusted me with. When you think you are utterly alone, when you think Our Lord and Our Lady are not with you, that is when “They are so very close to you” and this is a FACT. God Bless to all, Arrow >>>———>
I’m Rose from southern Indiana.Arrow was making a few stops in Indiana a few weeks ago and stopped in at our rosary prayer group.He talked about Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and showed us the original photo/image of Her and handed out the new prayer cards with the Memorare prayer on the back, he then returned home.
So ,the following week Arrow returned to southern Indiana with 5-8×10’s blessed photo’s of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy.Our rosary group received 2 of these photo’s and other 3 went elsewhere.There are two different places we meet for rosary. One of the places is visited by who ever wishes to come and pray.On Sunday July 1st there was a group of Mexican workers who came to pray. They were all kneeling surrounding the photo/image of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and as they were praying the image started weeping inside the glass.All present saw it and a message was given that these were “Tears of Joy”. These Mexican workers literally only have the clothes on their backs and the cars they drive are very old,but these people are so humble and joyful to have what they have and they are so devoted to Our Lady. We need to learn by their example to approach Our Lady with sincere and humble hearts.We are to truly know that without a doubt that Our Blessed Mother is constantly with us and is interceding for us ,even though we can not physically see Her.

God Bless to all. First, I am trying to play catch up in answering all my emails. I have been in the great country of Canada for the last 3 days giving talks with Fr. Sam on the miracle story and mission of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. While in Canada, I learned that somebody who is very dear to me and lives in Chatham Ontario has a birthday this coming Thursday. So, After being with Fr. Sam on Saturdayand thru Sunday afternoon, I drove to Windsor Ontario Sunday to stay the night with my brother and sister in Christ, Jeff & Sue and to be with their prayer group on Monday night. I asked Sue where is a Hallmark card store and that I wanted to get a nice birthday card. Sue, told me that “Shoppers Drug Mart” store has a nice selection of cards and they also have a post office in the back of the store and I could also mail it from there. Then Monday morning, I went to Tim Horton’s to get my usual 2 shots of espresso coffee. I have been hooked on espresso’s ever since having one in Medjugorje. While at Tim Horton’s, I asked the girl where could I find a nice card store to get a birthday card and she said that “Shoppers Drug Mart” had a nice selection. Then I said to myself, okay then, I’ll go to Shoppers Drug Mart store which was just down the street.
Back in 1998 I had a bad fall on some steps and really hurt my back. It took about 10 or years, but my back did eventually heal most of the way. But I still had some residual irritation that would come and go, but it was definitely manageable. Over the past couple years an irritation developed in my middle back that became a constant discomfort. It was increasing to the point where I almost couldn’t find a comfortable position in which to to sit, stand, or sleep.
A friend had sent a picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy to me, so I held it to my back and prayed the Memorare. Nothing happened immediately, but I remembered that in the bible, when Jesus performed miracles, some experienced immediate results, but some didn’t. Some healed slowly over several days, or with more time. So every day I held Her picture to me and prayed. After about a week and a half the pain in my back subsided. It went away completely. That was back in February. It is now the end of June and still no pain in my back. Through the intercession of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy, my back has been healed. Praise be to Jesus Christ!

> My name is Betsy and I was given your email address and phone number by Dr. Jaime . We grew up together here in western Kentucky and his sister, Karen was a close friend of mine.
> I don’t use a cell phone and am presenting waiting for A T & T to come fix my home phone for the second time in the last couple of weeks. So I thought I would just email you.
> I am not sure why Jaime wants me to contact you other than to tell you my story of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. So here it is.
> I will give you some quick background although that is not necessarily important to the whole story. I am now 64 yrs old but when I was 23 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Scleroderma. Along with this I have developed some other autoimmune diseases, which is pretty common. So as you can tell I have struggled with some health problems over the years although they did not keep me from working full time as a social worker for 17 years and as a teaching assistant and art teacher at a local elementary school for about 11 yrs. I have been retired for 12 years. In my 50’s I developed an autoimmune problem called Sjogrens which causes me to have intense dry eyes. That health problem is what I wanted to talk to you about today.
> Late last November (2017) I went to see my eye doctor because the dryness of my left eye was causing me vision problems. This was due to Sjogrens. Normally over the counter drops alleviate the dryness in my eyes but at this time that was not helping my left eye. My doctor examined my right eye and said she thought it looked pretty good but was very concerned when she saw the dryness in my left eye. She described little dots that she called stippling. At that point she prescribed steroid drops for my left eye only. She advised me to use the drops over the next few months and return for an appointment in April.
> I had been on steroid drops a few times before but only for short periods and always they had quickly and successfully improved my vision and the problem caused by dryness or inflammation. I used these prescription drops in my left eye all the month of December 2017, January and February of 2018 with no improvement in my left eye at all. The vision was still blurry and the dryness and redness seemed worse. So at the end of February I made the decision to stop using those steroid drops. During this whole time I continued to use another prescription medication called Restasis. My doctor has prescribed that medication for many, many year due to inflammation in the eyes.
> So at the end of February I was pretty discouraged about the loss of clear vision in my left eye. On Saturday, March 3rd I think it was I happen to read a story on Spirit Daily that mentioned the mass in Cincinnati and how the picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy came about. So I went to the website of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and read the whole story. I then told a friend of mine, Becky about it and we decided we needed to order 100 of those pictures to give out to people in our parish. The next week in March I went back to your website and using the photo on the website I prayed to Mary and Jesus about my vision problem in my left eye. When praying I did not ask to be healed of Scleroderma or Sjogrens but only to give me my eyesight back in my left eye.
> I had become so dependent on my right eye and was wearing my glasses for distance more that I did not even realize at first the next day that the vision in my left eye had returned.
> So Becky ordered 100 pictures of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and we received them on March 21st and had them blessed by a priest the next day.
> On April 3rd, 2018 I kept my appointment with my eye doctor and told her the story of how the steroid eye drops had not worked in December, January and February. I told her I quit using the drops at the end of February. Then I told her how I had prayed and my eyesight returned. She said she believes in the power of prayer. She also told me that she had no medical explanation on how the eyesight in my left eye returned. She said if the steroid drops were not working for three months they would not suddenly have started working in March when I stopped using the drops. She said the Restasis could not have fixed the dry eye problem since I had been on that drug for many years. She said if I had just started using that drug then maybe it would have been responsible for curing the problem but I had not just started using that drug. She quizzed me and quizzed me about things but in the end she said she had no medical answer as to how my eyesight returned.
> On that day she said both eyes looked great and were clear of all dryness. She said my vision was good and my eye pressure was good in both eyes. Everything was good. What she hadn’t told me at the appointment in November was that she had seen some dryness in my right eye too that day but it wasn’t bad enough for me to use the steroid drops in that eye.
> I know this email is long but it is the short version of my story.
> You can share my story with others but if you decide to put something on the website please use only my first name.
> If you want me to call for some reason I can do that when my phone is fixed, just let me know. Thank you so much for sharing this picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy.
> Betsy /Kentucky
God Bless to all. I have Art’s permission to share this most beautiful story of Our Blessed Mother’s intercession. Yesterday June 20th, I went back to Greensburg Indiana to give another talk on Our Lady of the Tear of Joy to another Rosary group. While driving to Indiana, I received a text message from Rose G that if I could go by Margaret Mary hospital in Batesville Indiana and pray over a man and the family was told I was coming down and had the original image (photo) of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. I went to the hospital and making a long story short, met a man by the name of Art B. Art was admitted into the hospital Tuesday and had been spitting up blood, had trouble breathing, couldn’t walk, had not slept in “Day’s” and several other health issues. The medication he was being given was not working to relieve the pain/suffering. I handed everybody in the room with Art, the prayer card of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy. I then placed the original image on Art and we then prayed the Memorare prayer to Our Lady.
On Sunday Mom and I spoke with a lady (Stella) from our parish. A while back she was having some health problems and was going to the doctor about her heart. She was worried.
I had the Tear of Joy cards with me so I gave one to her and one to her husband and we all prayed the Memorare together. Stella had tears run down her face,…she was very touched. We had not seen her since then, but on Sunday she told us that she had heart surgery and before surgery the doctor told her that she was very high risk, and also because she was elderly that made the surgery almost impossible to survive. He did, however, do the surgery. Stella had 5 stints put in, and she is doing VERY WELL. She said “it is a miracle and I am telling everyone that!”

Dear Aldona…..Mary just called from the hospital. She had a surgery yesterday to eliminate
For several years, my daughters have not spoken to each other, and myself their mother. One of my daughters did not want to know anything about me. My children were all bickering and they were no longer able to see each other, or not even look even look at each other. On Mother’s Day (Sunday May 13th, 2018), everyone gathered for the occasion and we went to the restaurant.

Just passing along what my mother just told me about her “Tear of Joy” picture:
God Bless to all. Fr. Sam is back at home and with his permission, I am to write about this miracle. Very late Tuesday night, Fr. Sam was taken to the E/R in Chatham Ontario Canada. Making a very long story short, an x-ray was taken which detected blood in his lung, then a second x-ray was taken which showed a collapsed lung with a puncture hole. Jeff & Sue Cada from Windsor Canada and who head up a very large group of prayer warriors on the Canadian side, went to the hospital to see Fr. Sam. I also spoke to Jeff on the phone today and he said that Sue placed the image (photo) of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy on Fr. Sam’s chest and they prayed. They then placed the image of Our Lady on the wall in his hospital room. Later they took 3rd x-ray which showed NOTHING WRONG WITH HIS LUNG. I personally spoke to Fr. Sam and he said and I quote, “The doctor told me he couldn’t understand how my lung is fine now.” Fr. Sam was to be in the hospital until Tuesday but he is back at home in Ridgetown Ontario as I write this. Thank you Blessed Mother for your intercession for a very Holy Priest who simply “Love’s” doing your Son’s work down here on earth. God Bless to all and always know and never forget, Our Blessed Mother has Her mantle of Love & Protection wrapped around all of you, Arrow Osborne / Maumee, OH
Hello Arrow , My brother in Christ, Jim from my prayer group
At Good Shepherd in Brooklyn NY , gave me the tear of joy photo.I experienced a healing from Mary our blessed mother. I have had this tremor in my head and if you knew about it and watched me you might see it. I had told my twin sister about it some 7 or so years ago and then l forgot about it, she watched me unbeknownst to me and 1/2 hour later she said l see it it’s very mild but l do see it. When l told my primary doctor about it he said
“Don’t worry about it, it’s Katherine Hepburn disorder, nothing to worry about, it’s hereditary.” Disgusted l said well no one in my family has it.
It was something for the most part only known to me and l felt l could
Control it to some degree so it was not visible to anyone really unless the were studying me really closely, and who does that really? Then l started getting these tremors in my hands and they seemed to get worse daily.
One day last week April 12 , 2018. I woke up had my coffee and a bowl of cereal with banana and sat down to make a piece of jewelry, when all of a sudden it was as if l were plugged into a electric circuit. From my head to toe l felt this humming current, it wasn’t painful but it was frightening because I also had exacerbation of hand tremors and head shaking. I was short of breath and felt nauseous. I was scared to death.
I had to lie down, l didn’t know what to do with myself. I just laid in bed for 5 minutes or so and got up. I walked into my living room where l have on my coffee table a small alter ( l live alone) lol so who cares….and then l saw the picture of thetearofjoy our blessed mother. I picked it up and l thought well just for now l would dispense with the candles and incense.
I held the picture to my head and l said out loud (mind you l have been thinking it was parkinson disease) mother Mary if this is the way l am going to go out l accept it and l offer up my discomfort or whatever is coming , for the glory of God and for all He has done for me. Then l let it go.
Half way through the next day it dawned on me that I hadn’t felt or seen and tremors and l immediately thought Oh my God l have been healed.
That was 5days ago now and l have not had
Any tremors. Praise God and His Blessed Mother. I hope this is a witness to my children and grandchildren that they can not deny Jesus and His love and healing. Amen They do seem impressed and it is an answer to prayer that l have been praying for for many years. Janet K from NY
Hello everyone, I just wanted to share a wonderful true story with all of you. My childhood best friend by the name of Rose told me her dad, Mario was in the hospital. He fell and hit his head on the bathroom tile, causing a brain bleed. The Dr. performed two surgeries to stop the bleeding and now all that was left was very little hope, you see Mario has an array of EXISTING health issues (which was the reason why Mario was weak and fell), this was only making things worse! The Doctors said there was a great chance that Mario wouldn’t even survive surgery, his chances were very slim. I called Arrow; he came to the hospital, placed the picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy on Mario’s wrapped head and we prayed the Memorare prayer. The NEXT DAY Mario came out of the coma he was in and began to respond!!! A few days later the breathing machine and the drainage tubes (that were in Mario’s head) were removed. He has now been released from the hospital and is in a rehab facility. I know Our Lady took Mario’s petition to Our Lord and He answered her!!! Thank you My Mother!!! xoxoxo. And thanks to all the prayer warriors who were praying for Mario!
I gave the picture of Mother Mary Tear of Joy to Susan @ church
My name is Maria, I live in Michigan. This Monday morning I woke up with an excruciating pain on my right sciatic nerve. By Tuesday night the pain was accompanied by spasms, pain meds only lasted three hours. Before going to bed I held the picture of Our Lay of The Tear of Joy to the site. I slept semi comfortable. This morning the pain and spasms were back, I used Our Blessed Mother’s picture again before going to Mass. Later this afternoon I noticed that the pain was gone and I had not taken any meds since this morning. I have a slight ache left. I know that the kind of pain I had experienced could not suddenly disappear. I believe Our Lady took care of me. One of my good friends taught all of us at our Prayer group to say, Mary take over and Jesus I trust in You! Maria // Michigan
Upon arriving at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Brighton, MI I entered the church to make a holy hour. My wife, already at the church for a school function, was leaving to go to our home and asked to switch vehicles for convenience purposes. On Thursday, I was given a stack of Our Lady of Tears prayer cards for distribution that were stored in the counsel of my car. When my wife entered the car she discovered this tear resting on the prayer card (see photos), in the normal place a tear would collect on a persons face. The car was perfectly dry and there were no liquids of any sort in the vehicle. The tear never moved and evaporated after about an hour. My wife and our children all witnessed that tear and verified that the tear was present and obvious to see. According to the witnesses, it looked like a real tears and gave them an overwhelming feeling of astonishment. You’ll notice in the picture that there was an interesting ray of sunlight that did not appear in the car but was visible in the photograph. The prayer card now has a small mark where the tear appeared and is perfectly dry. Praise the Lord for Our Blessed Mother!

Hi there, just wanted you to know that when I received the picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy I was immediately in awe of the picture. She is so beautiful! I put it on my person as I was having trouble with my abdomen and I felt a wonderful heat surge throughout my body down to my left leg which is where the pain was leading to. I also felt a great peace that came over me. I proceeded to do this for several days and always had the same feelings of warmth and peace come over me. I really feel much better and my pain has subsided. Whenever I put this picture on my person I always feel a warmth. It is truly a healing picture. I have worn other blessed items before but none has had the effect like this picture. Thank you so much. It is truly a blessing for me. Marie.
Hi, it’s Catherine from Detroit. As you know I have been struggling with a massive lump on my breast. I took the image of Our Lady that I received and placed it on the area where the lump was located and prayed to our Lady.
Just wanted to let you know that I went for the biopsy yesterday. After many people looking at many pictures (x-rays), followed by a lot of head scratching, they could find nothing to biopsy.. it was gone and they let me go!!
________________________________________________________________________________________________________On Thursday December 21, 2017 following morning Mass at St. Casimir Church in Lansing, MI I handed a picture of Our Lady Tear of Joy to a man with special needs. He exclaimed, “The Blessed Mother!” And he said to his friend, “You love the Blessed Mother!” And his friend said, “So do you, John. So do you.”
On December 16, 2017 following Mass at St. Mary Williamston I went into a room with a group who were going to learn about Spiritual Bouquets. I gave Our Lady Tear of Joy to a lady, and she said, “When I looked at her, the Spirit rushed upon me. I felt the Spirit all over me.” I said, “She is yours.” The lady replied, ‘Oh, thank you!”
Here I am writing about my own testimonial, WOW!! A few weeks ago, I had a growth appear on my nose and last Wednesday I went and saw a dermatologist. As soon as the doctor looked at the growth on my nose, he immediately said and I quote, “Yep, that is skin cancer.” He then proceeded to tell me that he wants to do a biopsy to determine if it is malignant or benign. Then he proceeded to tell me that either way, malignant or benign, it will require surgery and they would have to cut deep to get all the cancer out and it would require them taking skin from another part of my body to place on the area of the surgery. I became very quiet and he placed his hand on my shoulder and said to me, “Are you Okay?” I said “Yes” and I proceeded to tell him I was fully prepared to hear this today. I went out to my car and of course I prayed and I also reminded myself about the children of Fatima and how Our Blessed Mother showed them the gift of suffering and how with suffering you can save souls you will never meet and suffering is a “Grace.” After Our Blessed Mother showed the children the gift of suffering, She then asked them, “Are you willing to suffer?” and they said “YES.” This is called “A victim soul” and I personally know several visionaries/mystics who Our Lord or Our Lady has told them the same and that is why with all their illness’s, aches and pains they are battling, they know there are “Graces” that come with it and when they offer up their pain, they are saving souls.
Praise worthy news from Gail . She is home. Gall bladder did not need to be removed. A pacemaker is not required as thought before. There are no spots on her liver. They did only a resection of bowel not a colonostomy as thought before. She slept with Our Lady of the Tear of Joy picture on her abdomen while praying many nights.
Gail attributes her miracles to the intercession of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy.
I had to jot down my thoughts of the “Tear of Joy” photo that Arrow gave to us——————– while praying at the “barn.” There are so many things that come to mind when looking at Her and wondering of Her (possible) “Many” Tears of Joy. I just wanted to share some of them with you, as in these days, we do NOT hear of her Joyful Tears, rather——————– those of Sorrow.
OUR LADY OF THE TEAR OF JOY
In these days, because of how America and the World lives, we often hear of statues of our Blessed Mother weeping (exuding) real tears, or of oil or even tears of blood.
It was AWESOME receiving the photo of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and hearing the story of how a “BIRTHDAY PARTY” ————of course with the celebration of Mass, praying the Rosary, balloons and the people that attended to celebrate her day brought a Tear of Joy to Her Eye.
In praying the Rosary, I can’t help but think of all the times there was a Tears of Joy in Her Eyes:
After the Angel Gabriel announced to Her that She was chosen by God to bear His Son,
surely after all this was carefully thought about, She certainly must have experienced Tears of Joy knowing the honor and great blessing bestowed upon Her.
When Jesus was born, in spite of the great hardships endured by Mary & Joseph in their travels and not being able to find a place to give birth to the Son of God————-just seeing the Baby Jesus, in spite of the poor surroundings, certainly must have brought Tears of Joy, then the shepherds visiting and the Three Wise-men adoring and bringing gifts, could that not bring Tears of Joy to our Blessed Mother?
In visiting Elizabeth and hearing her words, was there not a Tear of Joy when She spoke the words of the Magnificat?
In the temple, when Simeon and Anna saw the Baby, (before his words that Jesus would suffer greatly and Her Heart would be pierced by a sword), did She not experience Tears of Joy?
Returning to their home in Nazareth, were there not Tears of Joy, after all the hardships of escaping Herod’s wrath and being in exile?
Finding Jesus in the Temple after desperately searching for three days, there certainly must have been Tears of Joy (and relief).
Throughout the Life of Jesus, especially at the Wedding Feast at Cana, when Jesus (not yet in His Time) miraculously changed water into wine, because She asked Him. I can only imagine what Jesus said to her———MOM, —————-. That miracle must have put a Tear of Joy in Her Eye. It certainly makes me smile————being a mother.
Although there were many Tears of Sorrow, especially in the Passion and Death of Her Son, Jesus, that we must consider, we try to focus on the Tears of Joy in this writing.
Now we focus on the Resurrection of Jesus. Mary already knew that He would rise from the dead, as He had said. Having this happen, His Mother, in great relief and gratefulness, certainly experienced many Tears of Joy.
With the Ascension of Jesus, most all of His followers were greatly saddened because their Messiah, Teacher and Dear Friend would be leaving them, although going to prepare a place for them in His Father’s Mansion. More than likely, saddened to have Her Son leave earth, she knew that He would always be with Her and all of His followers. Maybe Tears of Sadness—————but also of Joy.
When it came time for Mary to leave this earth, can you imagine Her Tear of Joy when Jesus comes to take Her to heaven?
Then to be crowned as the Queen of Heaven and the Whole Universe? More Tears of Joy.
We crown her with simple flowers as our Mother and Queen. I’ll bet she also sheds a Tear of Joy at those times, too.
So looking at Our Lady of the Tear of Joy photo, I can’t help but think of all the times our Dear Blessed Mother probably experienced Tears of Joy. It is a blessing to think that there were times of great joy in Her Life, in spite of all the hardships that she endured—————and what is now occurring in our world that prevents the Tear of Joy in her eye.
Let us try to celebrate, console and pray without ceasing to Her, in hopes that we might for even a moment bring back that Tear of Joy.
These are just “some “of my thoughts in looking at Our Lady of the Tear of Joy photo. I could go on and on.
Thank You, Arrow, for giving us the photo and sharing the beautiful story of how it happened. God Bless You in “doing Her Work” and involving us.
Love & Prayers to All.

Arrow, David (my grandson), was talking to me about some issues in his life and I took the picture of Our Lady of the Tear of Joy and placed it on him and the picture became very warm – Mary
Arrow when you enlarge this picture you will see tears enlightened in green beads on the larger picture.These 2 pictures were being sent to the Denver area along with others to spread the devotion.
In April 2017, I went to a remote village in the central area of the Philippines with a group from our Toledo Ohio parish to help rebuild areas still suffering from super typhoon Yolanda that claimed thousands of lives.
It was a very humbling experience as these people live a very simplistic and holy life. Clean running water and reliable electricity does not exist. The economy is based on farming crops like rice, potatoes and other tropical fruits.
The catholic church that we went to support and help rebuild was full of hope, trust and faith. A striking devotion to Our Mother was present everywhere. At the end of every mass – they all faced a beautiful stained glass image of Mary and ended the mass with a special song to Her.
Inspired by this level of devotion – my connection to Our Mother has grown.
So I found a way to send packages to them. One way takes 70 days and the more expensive way can reduce it to 10 days but they have to drive 100 miles to pick these packages up.
In December, I sent a package over that included 100 images of Our Mother to the pastor Fr Felix.
Since there is no internet, I printed out a copy of the miracle image story for Father to read and know the story behind the image.
Yesterday after mass they handed out the images and sent me this photograph (via cell phone) of the kids holding Our Lady….13,000 miles away.
Enjoy this beautiful picture……Steve
It seems we are always being tested. The job we want, friends new and old, family members agree or disagree. It seems that there are so many things that we are praying about. In the last 5 years I have felt like a child wandering thinking I had my focus and path but everything that I knew was upside down inside out and all confused. I was reminded of forgiving all who have trespassed against me. Send Gods love to them, and REALLY mean it. Things started to change I was not as lost but still not found. I was praying to be led by Gods will…then a friend gave me The photo of Our Blessed Mother Tear of Joy after the Children’s mass on Christmas Eve.WOW I saw her beautiful face and I have been so blessed. She has peeled away the layers so that I can get out of my ego and truly hear what I am to hear. Let go and Let God take care of me because we are all made in Gods likeness. Mary has no ego she is pure love! So I started to wonder with every situation What would Mary do if…and let me tell you I have been on my knees crying and with this photo I have been so moved Miracles have been happening! I have found a home that I can call my own. My health is strong, I am less sadden from worry. Things are not perfect but I know that our faith will move mountains if we do our part and remember it is not someone else fault we need to claim our part forgive the rest. Mary is there we just have to remember to trust and have faith like she had.True unconditional amazing love.
