THE APOSTOLATE OF OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS CELEBRATES TWENTY YEARS ON THE INTERNET MAKING OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS KNOWN AND LOVED
TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE INTERNET PRESENCE OF
THE APOSTOLATE OF OUR LADY OF GOOD SUCCESS
Our Lady of Good Success told Mother Mariana
"The quill of polished and shining gold marked with My Name is for all the priests of both clergies (regular and secular) who write of my glories and sorrows. It is also for those who by means of their writing diffuse my devotion of Good Success of this Convent, as well as your life, which is inseparable from this tender and consoling invocation.
In the 20th century, this devotion will work prodigies in the spiritual as well as temporal spheres, because it is the will of God to reserve this invocation and knowledge of your life for that century, when the corruption of customs will be almost general and the precious light of Faith almost extinguished»!"
In Mother Mariana de Jesus' Last Will and Testament she wrote:
«When the Divine Master was hanging from the ignominious gibbet of the Cross on which He expired amid His almost infinite sufferings and torments, the testament that He gave to redeemed humanity was to leave us His Mother as our Mother. Addressing His Virgin Mother, He said: “Woman, behold your son!”, the beloved Disciple. Then He said to John: “Behold your Mother!”. Behold your Heavenly Mother, Our Lady of Good Success. She will always give you good successes». «Have a great love for the Blessed Virgin. Imitate her virtues, above all, her profound humility and her ardent love for God and poor sinners. Love each other with a childish simplicity and innocence that permits no falseness of hypocrisy in your souls. Conserve and propagate the devotion to Our Lady under the tender invocation of Good Success, so that She might obtain whatever you ask of Jesus and Mary. You should also take supreme care of your great treasure and strive to make Her known and loved by the greatest number of souls possible, assuring them that with this devotion they will always attain good success in time and in eternity...». «Have recourse to Her in all your spiritual and temporal needs. When your soul suffer temptations and hardships, and if the star of the divine vocation, by divine permission, is hidden from your soul’s sight, run to Her with confidence and say:
«Star of the stormy sea of my mortal life, of my mortal life, may your light shine upon me may your light shine upon me so that I do not stray so that I do not stray from the path from the path that leads me to Heaven». that leads me to Heaven».
[Prayer and Motto of the Apostolate of Our Lady of Good Success]
The last few months have been a bit dicey for us. We have had some health issues that we have struggled through.
Right now, this writer is struggling with a herniated disc and typing standing up because it is not possible to sit down due to this injury. Also, I have not been able to do any work for over two months due to my own illnesses in addition to this new injury.
I would be deceiving you if I told you that we have not been affected by all of this and the last couple years of COv... stuff!
