The Relevance of the Devotion of
‘The Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Immaculate Heart of Mary’
for our times as revealed by The Blessed Virgin Mary to the seer Iveta Fernandes
On 4th Feb 2022, Our Blessed Mother came to request Her Children through Iveta to re-kindle the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She came to remind us that the devotion to The Sacred Heart of Jesus and to Her Immaculate Heart, that She requested of us at Fatima, is most desired by God Our Father.
This Devotion is of relevant nature for our world, She says and that though 'many have abandoned it, and even cast away in disbelief, the promises are still relevant'
Our Lady further adds: "My Faithful children must rekindle this devotion, in union with all My beloved chosen Sons, My Priests and bring it about in preparation of the second birth pangs, and even after the second birth pangs - to be understood as - in preparation of the underground church! This devotion must be fostered and rekindled on the First Friday, and the First Saturday, as you have begun and are doing so. Make known to all My beloved children. In this way, they must Consecrate their homes once again to The Sacred Heart of Jesus, and The Immaculate Heart of Mary, I Am She.
In this way, they will understand the preparation of what now is beginning, as the Church is beginning to descend, as lawlessness ascends. Yet, I will be with you, and Jesus - who will not abandon you, through His priests, in the moments of the underground church - will come to be with you, wherever this devotion is fostered” (Message of Feb 4th, 2022)
The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Jesus in a vision on March 12, 2022 speaks to Iveta about the promise He made to St Margaret Mary Alacoque to Whom He revealed His love through the devotion of His Sacred Heart, which overflows now into His Merciful Heart known as Divine Mercy, the devotion revealed to Saint Sister Faustina Kowalska, His beloved daughter.
The devotion is to be understood as follows: The Sacred Heart throbs in The Holy Eucharist, for His children to come and consume Him, Love Him, Adore him, Worship Him and Reverence Him for all the assaults He is suffering against The Holy Eucharist – the rejection by His children; The Father's love waiting to be poured into God's children, who will come and, through the Sacrament of Reconciliation receive Him worthily in The Holy Eucharist, and be filled with the Power of Grace to undergo these moments of persecution where The Immaculate Heart of His Blessed Mother - given to us at the foot of The Cross, Our Blessed Mother - will carry us through these moments, with Joy and Peace and with the love of Tranquility that comes through receiving Him in the Holy Eucharist - to undergo these moments! (March 12, 2022)
Furthermore, Our Lord adds: "This devotion brought joy and protection and fidelity in family units known as the Domestic Church. Today, it has been thrown to the wayside - taken out, that is! The Image of My Sacred Heart that was venerated when you entered a home, you will see Me there, in The image of My Sacred Heart - and I would impart the Rays of My Sacred Heart to penetrate your heart and the heart of everybody - that is My children who visited one another, and even the non- Catholics to convert unto Me, without even them realizing! Today socialism, materialism and modernism has taken the place of My Sacred Heart once adored and honored. And the promises stood in every home that honored Me and My Sacred Heart!”
And to Iveta, Jesus discloses: “It is the desire of My Sacred Heart, that this devotion, once in your Ancestral land be brought alive. For in the days of persecution, in the days that will lead My remnant, this devotion is vital! And in union with My Sacred Heart, I desire the devotion to My Mothers Immaculate Heart - that will form you and lead you safely into My Sacred Heart - wherever there is confusion and disorder of every kind in the Domestic Church, both in the Latin and Eastern Rite, as it is known".
The Requirements for The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
It is an hour of reparation made on the First Friday of the Month - made before the Blessed Sacrament or in the sanctity of one's home, the Domestic Church, where the The Sacred Heart of Jesus, the King of all Kings is enthroned. Let us during this Holy Hour make reparation and console the Sacred Heart of Jesus for all the Offenses, sacrileges, indifferences and desecration committed against Him and in doing so may we obtain the conversion of sinners and avail of the many benefits and graces promised to us through His confidante, St Margaret Mary.
The Twelve Promises of Jesus to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque for those who practice devotion to His Sacred Heart are as follows:
1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
2. I will establish peace in their families.
3. I will console them in all their troubles.
4. They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of their death.
5. I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source of an infinite ocean of mercy.
7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.
8. Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.
9. I will bless the homes where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.
10.I will give to priests the power of touching the most hardened hearts.
11.Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be effaced.
12.The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under my displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My heart shall be their assured refuge at that last hour.
The devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was officially recognized and approved by Pope Clement XIII in 1765, seventy-five years after her death. Margaret Mary was declared Venerable in March, 1824 by Pope Leo XII, and she was pronounced Blessed on September 18, 1864 by Pope Pius IX. The inauguration of the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus occurred in 1856, and Margaret Mary was canonized by Benedict XV in 1920.
Before inviting Jesus into our homes and proclaiming Him as the King and Head of our household on a designated day, we must be well prepared. The real gift of the Enthronement is the awareness of the Living Presence of God in our homes, therefore we prepare our hearts and home with that gift of His coming foremost on our minds. An enthronement ceremony is also performed with all respect and piety with preferably a prior 9-day preparation which could include prayers with recitation of Psalm 91, the Rosary and perhaps a Novena to open our hearts and home to that fullness of grace that the King of Kings wishes to give us. Remember the greater the preparation, the greater the grace.
Our Lady to Iveta: 'Make known to all My beloved children. In this way, they must Consecrate their homes once again to The Sacred Heart of Jesus, and The Immaculate Heart of Mary, I Am She'.
The Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and its requirements
Today Satan has unleashed his fury which seeks the destruction of souls. Persecution against God's people and against the Church is rising! On May 13, 1990, through Fr. Gobbi, Our Blessed Mother tells us: ‘Satan has been the uncontested dominator of the events of this century of yours, bringing all humanity to the rejection of God and of his law of love, spreading far and wide division and hatred, immorality and wickedness and legitimating everywhere divorce, abortion, obscenity, homosexuality and recourse to any and all means of obstructing life’.
To help us though these anticipated turbulent times prophesied at Fatima and at Batim, Our Blessed Mother brings us a remedy: 'God wishes to establish devotion to my Immaculate Heart in the world….. My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge, and the way that will lead you to God.' She pleads with us to seek refuge in and consecrate ourselves to Her Immaculate Heart. In making an act of Consecration to Her Immaculate Heart, as requested in Fatima, we dedicate our heart to God in answer to God's call to spiritual consecration. By reflecting on our motives, repenting and being baptized we stay apart or separate ourselves from the evils of the world. In committing ourselves to God, through Mary, we draw closer to God and get to know His Will for us.
To the Visionary Iveta Fernandes of the Batim Apparitions, Our Lady discloses on 11th Aug 2011: Be not anxious, be not troubled. Simply place all into My Immaculate Heart. Only I can help for I Am The Woman clothed in the Sun Who will crush the head of satan. The Triumph of My Immaculate Heart must be understood in this manner.
“ My beloved children, I have come down once again this day to be with you and I desire with great desire to stay with you as you Consecrate yourselves, each one of you into My Immaculate Heart. There are many here who do not understand the Consecration to My Immaculate Heart, it is simple children simple, simply give Me your heart and tell Me to do all that God desires in you for which you were created, exchanging your will for the Divine Will and I will conform you in the Order and Grace of God and lead you to Holiness in which each one of you is called to be".
Message given through Iveta at Batim, Goa on 14th October 2016
The devotion of First Saturdays requested by Our Lady at Fatima and at Batim carries with it the assurance of salvation. However, to derive profit from such a great promise of Our Lady, the devotion must be properly understood and duly performed. The requirements as stipulated by Our Lady are as follows: Confession, Communion of reparation, Five decades of the Rosary, Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament and Consecration of oneself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary including wearing of the scapular. All this to be done in the spirit of reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Our Lady has assured us that She will obtain salvation for all those who observe the First Saturday Devotion in accordance with Her conditions stated above. Remember all of this has merit only through the sacrifice of Her Son Jesus on the cross.
Again to Iveta on January 1st, 2020 our Blessed Mother pleads with us to raise the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, not just on the First Saturdays at the Holy Mount, Batim, but many sacrifices to atone for the offences committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The prayer that she desires most is the Holy Rosary - through which we can overturn evil and bind the forces of evil in our families - during this time of rising persecution against the Catholic Church.
'Should you not do penance and renounce, as in repent, and embrace the devotion to the Immaculate Heart, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, you will likewise perish - the good and the guilty! Yet even now turn, turn from your evil ways and return to My Immaculate Heart, that desires to impart the fire of God's love, and make you anew, and place you into the Sacred Heart of Jesus, desiring to impart God's Love, and render you worthy to the eternal Father, Who waits for His children, who has emptied all His Love through His Beloved son, One with Him, Our Saviour Jesus Christ even now, as His last means, imparts all His Love through My Immaculate Heart, The Heart of a Mother desiring to ransom all those who will turn away, through victim souls like this little one of Mine and My Jesus, to God' (March 12th, 2022)
‘In the end, My Immaculate Heart will Triumph and the era of peace will descend upon Your World and the reign of The Immaculate Heart and The Sacred Heart of Jesus will flourish for a thousand years of Peace.’ (Message Sept 6th, 2018)
'It is by this consecration and fidelity to Her Immaculate Heart that the Triumph begins in each heart as Our Blessed Mother leads those Consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart into The Sacred Heart of Jesus (Dec 8th, 2021) This is the family unit or the domestic church 'that must now function within its boundaries of fidelity to God. God will not abandon them and will carry them into the era of The Sacred Heart of Jesus, and The Immaculate Heart of Mary' (Jan 1st, 2022)
'I am the Mother of God, always present, reminding all Mothers once again who are failing, to consecrate their children by name every morning and to entrust them into My Immaculate Heart. I will take care of them. Only know that I can do so in these days. I love you dearly. I am the Mother of God, the Mediatrix of all Grace, Co-Redemptrix and Advocate in Heaven, awaiting to be proclaimed on Earth. Amen'. (Message of 24th September, 2019)
'The Dogma that will come forth upon Our Blessed Mothers faithful children and upon the Martyrs will release the graces necessary to 'endure the persecution that must come into being as the seed for the future church, the Bride of Christ renewed through this persecution to be brought to its purity, for the remnant that must go forth'. (Nov 5th, 2021)
Let us do our due diligence and recognize the times that we are in, for the Great Persecution is at hand and let us avail ourselves of this Great Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary - to lead us to that promised Era of Peace!
The Fatima Prayers for the offences committed against Jesus in The Most Holy Blessed Sacrament (Given to us at Fatima and again to Iveta on 31st Aug 2022)
