The Revelations of Our Lady of Good Success of Quito, Ecuador
At the end of the 16th century, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to a Conceptionist nun in Quito, Ecuador, under the title of Our Lady of Good Success. The nun she appeared to was called Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres.
Mother Mariana was a Spanish Conceptionist sister who traveled from her country to the New World to help to found the Royal Convent. Favored with many singular gifts from heaven, this chosen soul was given to know many future events, especially the grievous situation of the Church in the 20th century.
Our Lady told her that in our lamentable times, heresies would abound, the corruption of manners and customs would be almost complete, and the light of the Faith nearly extinguished. To atone for the many profanations, blasphemies, and abuses and to hasten the day of the triumphant restoration, this 17th century sister was asked to become an expiatory victim for our times. Thus, in a special way, the vocation of Mother Mariana links her to the crisis in the Church and society that few would deny that we are witnessing today.
