“Behold I Send My Angel and He Shall Prepare the Way before My Face”

[From the Epistle on The Presentation and Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Candlemas Day, February 2nd, Malachias 3, 1]
By Kathleen Heckenkamp

In discovering the devotion to Our Lady of Good Success, upon traveling to Quito in 2000 and in the subsequent visits, I encountered another devotion that has connections to the Conceptionist and the Carmelite orders at their heart- that of the devotion to the Holy Face. I was immediately drawn by the two images of the Holy Face- one of the Veil in the Carmelite Monastery and one of the Shroud in the Conceptionist Monastery. It is due to their presence there and the devotion of my father to the Shroud and my brother-in-law’s devotion to the the Holy Face that eventually led me to not only studying their origins in these monastic orders and begin my own devotions to the Holy Face but then, some years later to spread it. In this article I wish to support the connections between the devotion of Our Lady of Good Success and the Holy Face by the following points: he salvation of the world.”
