"Yes, it has sorrowed My Immaculate Heart that My request has gone unheeded..........."(Click)

The Veneration of the Replicas of 'The Holy Shroud' and 'Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe' to take place at the Church of Sts Simon and Jude, Batim on 25th March 2020 (Feast of the Annunciation) was not given permission by the Local Church authorities and did not go ahead.

"Yes, it has sorrowed My Immaculate Heart that My request has gone unheeded...........", Our Lady exclaimed in Message to Iveta on th 15 March 2020 and furthermore She says: "I love you dearly for responding in this manner. Pray, pray for your Bishop, pray for your Priests, pray for the Hierarchy in your Diocese ......................., pray and be diligent to always uphold the Truth, do not compromise".

To us, Her beloved Children, She adds: "Come, come in great numbers and pray the Holy Rosary, it is in this way you will keep the Solidarity and Communion with Me to fight against the forces of evil. Yes, you will be sorrowed to learn that I have not been permitted to bring forth what I have desired, yet know and understand, forgive those for the ignorance and misunderstanding in their decision, only pray for them.".

" Bring forth processions, it marks your Solidarity with Me, praying The Holy Rosary, it is the weapon against the assaults of evil. I Am with you through it all. I love you dearly. I Am The Mother of God, The Mediatrix Of All Grace, Co – Redemptrix and Advocate in Heaven, I thank you immensely for praying for this intention. Continue in this manner, I Am yourHeavenly Mother. Amen.”

It was very unfortunate; that even in the current pandemic restriction, a limited service was not even held! Let us continue praying Our Rosaries as Our Lady has requested for it is the 'weapon against the assaults of evil' – the evil that is rising against us!


At Batim, Our Beloved mother makes us aware of Her scapular and it’s message. On 31st May 2011, Our Lady speaks to Iveta: “…I desire that you bring forth this Scapular, just like the one I made known to Dominic My beloved Son" ..She then describes the design of the scapular...."In this way it shall be that in these times I shall protect and conquer souls for God. This promise is for those who wear it....they shall walk hand in hand and in My Shadow. No evil shall snatch them from ME, their Heavenly Mother. The two parts revealed shall be bound together with a white cord, to reveal that when you wear it, you are united to I WHO AM THE MOTHER OF GOD, Our Lady of Mt ( Mount ) Carmel, Mediatrix of All Graces. This is My Motherly promise to all My beloved children. I love you dearly and desire to bring you to heaven when your exile on Earth is completed. Amen…”

Further on October 13th 2014, Our Lady promises us that great graces would flow through this 'Garment' - 'The Garment of Grace, the Scapular under the title of the Mediatrix of All Graces, I Who am She..”..indicating that great graces would flow to those wearing the scapular following proclamation of the 5th Marian Dogma: "Mediatrix of All Grace, Co-redemptrix and Advocate".

There is a similar protection to the Mediatrix of All Grace Medal. The scapular is a sign of Consecration to Our Lady.  As we confront this Pandemic, let us make use of these 'sacramentals' given by Our Lady and may we be found worthy of the privileges and promise attributed to them, including warding off all dangers of all kinds. In these troubled times, let us take refuge in Our Blessed Mother and Consecrate ourselves and our children daily to Her Immaculate Heart.  To know more about the Scapular and Medal CLICK HERE

" I love you dearly I Am The Mother of God, The Mediatrix of All Graces,

Co-Redemptrix, I Am The Immaculate Conception, I Am your Mother,Amen.” Message of April 27th 2011

A simple way ot console Our Lady is to make Acts of Reparation, to make the First Five Saturdays and to offer our prayers and sacrifices for the conversion of sinners - St John Paul II

"One day, Brother Angelus, to your Order of Carmel the Most Blessed Virgin Mary will give a devotion to be known as the Brown Scapular, and to my Order of Preachers she will give a devotion to be known as the Rosary. AND ONE DAY, THROUGH THE ROSARY AND THE SCAPULAR, SHE WILL SAVE THE WORLD." - St Dominic

In conformity with the directives of Pope Urban VIII, we have no intention of anticipating the judgement of the Holy Apostolic See and of the Church on Apparitions, reported by us, but not yet recognized; indeed, we submit to, and accept her final decision without reservation

The imposing Church on the Ganxim hilltop was constructed by the Augustinian Archbishop D.Frei Aleixo de Menezes between 1596-1610 and was dedicated to the apostles St.Simon and St. Jude. The Church and cemetery stood lonely and rejected -utterly isolated for over 200 yrs since the infamous plague that struck the region more than 200 yrs ago. Church services have since begun since 1993 following an apparition of the Virgin Mary to Mrs Iveta Fernandes.
