Gabriel Garcia Moreno by Maxwell-Scott
By: Honorable Mrs. Maxwell Scott
"God does not die!"- last words of Gabriel Garcia Moreno as he was martyred on August 6, 1875.
On January 16, 1599, Our Lady of Good Success appeared to a Conceptionist sister, Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres, in Quito, Ecuador over 250 years before his time to predict his coming, using these words:
“In the 19th Century, there will be a truly Catholic President, a man of character whom God, Our Lord, will give the palm of martyrdom on the square adjoining this convent. He will consecrate this Republic to the Sacred Heart of my Most Holy Son, and this consecration will sustain the Catholic Religion in the years that will follow, which will be ill-fated ones for the Church.
