St. Beatrice de Silva, Foundress of Conceptionists

Dear Friends of the Apostolate of Our Lady of Good Success,
Our Lady of Good Success stated in her last apparition of December 8th, 1634 to Mother Mariana:

"Here in this, my beloved Convent, I will have souls in which Jesus Christ -persecuted, hated and proscribed by this ungrateful land in the 20th century will take His delight…They will be the shield to prevent Divine Justice, so ready to chastise the horrendous crimes of their guilty brothers, for whom they will offer themselves as continuous victims…This devotion will be the lightning rod placed between Divine Justice and the prevaricating world to hold back God's Hand from unleashing the formidable punishment that this guilty earth deserves…”

"Woe to the world should it lack monasteries and convents!  Mortals do not comprehend their importance, for, if they understood, they would do all in their power to multiply them, because in them can be found the remedy for all physical and moral evils...”

"No one on the face of the earth is aware whence comes the salvation of souls, the conversion of great sinners, the cessation of great scourges, the production and fertility of the lands, the end of pestilences and wars, and the harmony between nations.  All this is due to the prayers that rise up from monasteries and convents.”

In addition, Our Lady promised that there would ALWAYS be victim souls in this convent until the END OF TIME who would be ready and willing to offer themselves for the salvation of sinners! Would it not then be meritorious to our souls and the souls of our loved ones to support a monastery such as this?  The Conceptionist Sisters always promise to pray for the intentions of their benefactors.

There is even an extraordinary promise from Heaven for those who support the Conceptionist Convent.  In the final apparition of 1634, Our Lady explained to Mother Mariana about the vision she was beholding of the three archangels carrying various gifts.  Our Lady stated that special rewards are promised to those who assist the Monastery of the Immaculate Conception and await them in Heaven for their virtuous efforts. They would be marked with a sign of glorious distinction in Heaven:

“… the tunics are also for secular and regular Priests, and seculars of both sexes, who, loving my Most Holy Son and Myself with simple and upright hearts, also love this Convent of our predilection, and, disregarding criticism and scorn, they strive for its conservation and dedicate themselves to propagating my cult under the consoling invocation of Good Success, which will be the sustenance and safeguard of the Faith in the almost total corruption of the 20th century.”
We recently spoke with the Mother Abbess, Sor Inez Maria del Sagrario, this past weekend and she asked us to obtain prayers from all of our members, friends and associates of the Apostolate for 2 intentions. (Any acts of penance done on their behalf- like your Lenten penances would be so very appreciated too)
1. The Conceptionist Monastery will be voting on April 2 for a new Mother Abbess.  This will effect a new phase in the history of the Monastery as the Mother Abbess that I have known for over 17 yrs will  be retiring from any more active governing and as she has been governing on and off for many years even previous to these 17 yrs, it will greatly affect the Monastery for better or for worse. So we are asking all to pray the novena to Our Lady of Good Success for a good success in this Monastery's election! (see below)
2. Additionally, Ecuador will be voting on the new President on April 2.  Mother Abbess is very concerned and worried that this new President will be a Communist.  There is a better choice that is Catholic and Conservative.  His name is Lasso.  It is an old Ecuadorean family name that has ties to the Convent. It is her hope that he wins.
