The  Time Has Come to Prepare for the Nine Day Novena to Our Lady of Good Success 

“They will have recourse to Me under the invocation of Our Lady of Good Success and this statue I now ask and command that you have made for the consolation and preservation of My Convent and for those faithful souls of that epoch during which there will be a great devotion to Me,  for I am Queen of Heaven under many invocations."

This devotion will be the lightning rod placed  between Divine Justice and the prevaricating world  to hold back God’s hand from unleashing punishment  that this guilty earth deserves.” 

Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres

These words were spoken by the Blessed Virgin Mary during an apparition to a cloistered Conceptionist  sister in Quito, Ecuador  on February 2, 1610. The sister’s name was Mother Mariana Francisca de Jesus Torres. She was graced with a series of apparitions for over 40 years which detailed the Crisis in the Church and Society, in general, in the Twentieth Century and beyond which we have been experiencing intensely since the 1960's.

As a result, this Church approved devotion was born under the grand title of Nuestra Senora del Buen Suceso de la Purificacion y Candelaria which translates to Our Lady of Good Success of the Purification and Candlemas. The Devotion to the Blessed Mother under the invocation of “Our Lady of Good Success,” originating in Quito, Ecuador, officially began in 1610. This devotion became very popular for a time and then dwindled until a resurgence arose, beginning in the Twentieth Century. It is currently increasing in intensity as each year passes.

The most striking details of this devotion center on the evidence given by Our Lady in her discourse with Mother Mariana that it has been specifically given to us by Heaven as a tremendous source of hope and grace during these perilous times and distinctly intended for Catholic souls who look anxiously for Divine intervention to restore the Church to its former glory that it once enjoyed.

The story of the life of Mariana de Jesus Torres was prophesied by the Blessed Virgin Mary  to be hidden for centuries only to be made known synonymously with the rekindling of the devotion to Our Lady under the invocation of “Our Lady of Good Success” in the Twentieth Century. This along with many other prophecies involving the future state of the Church and Society have been unfolding in the Twentieth Century just as Our Lady predicted almost 300 years after this holy sister’s birth.

Unfortunately, it seems that this feast day has become somewhat obscured...somewhat forgotten, we must work to make this day special for God and Our Lady once again!

The Novena to Our Lady of Good Success begins on Friday, Jan 24th, 2020 and runs through February 1st. The Feast Day is on February 2nd - The Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple, the Purification of Our Lady and Candlemas Day.   Please join us on January 24th in the spirit of prayer and penance for our beloved Church which has been experiencing Her Passion...  
Let us study and contemplate on the words of Our Lady of Good Success to Mother Mariana about our era! We will be posting a daily blog during the novena. Go to:

"Star of the Stormy Sea of my mortal life, may your light shine upon me so I do not stray from the path that leads me to Heaven."
