The Blessed Mother’s Tears


It was about 11:55 p.m. on June 30, 1985, when the Blessed Mother shed tears for the first time through Her statue in Naju. While Julia Kim was praying the rosary for the conversion of sinners and for the poor, she saw tears on the Blessed Mother's cheek.

At that time, Julia was not aware of such a miraculous weeping of the Blessed Mother's statue. She was very surprised and told her husband about the tears. Next morning, they still saw tears flowing on the Blessed Mother's face. Julia and her family wanted to be silent about this and only prayed. However, the word spread somehow and people began coming to see the miracle.

A sister at the parish church scolded Julia for not having told the pastor and the sister first. Soon the pastor and sisters came, followed by more people. Sometimes the number of people who came to see the statue reached 3,000 or even 4,000 per day. The place where the weeping began was the building where Julia's beauty parlor was located.

Later the Blessed Mother's statue was moved to Julia's apartment and, then, to the chapel where her statue still is. Until January 14, 1992, the Blessed Mother wept for a total of 700 days, calling us anxiously.


“You will be saved, if you do not ignore my tears and tears of blood,
accept my words well and live a life based on the Gospels and your sigh will turn into joy.
