Now you can know everything about Our Lady of Good Success from the 1790 original manuscript by Fr. Manuel Sousa Pereira. The story and prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success are inseparable from the person of Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres (1563-1635), a Conceptionist religious in Quito, Ecuador. Our Lady asked her to become an expiatory victim for the impurity, heresies, and blasphemies that would be unleashed on the Church in the 20th century. She agreed, thus linking herself to our times in a special way. Her extraordinary life and the revelations she received were written in 1790 by Fr. Pereira, a Franciscan priest she appeared to 150 years after her death. This is Volume I of his work, presented for the first time in English.

  • The devotion to Our Lady of Good Success has been approved by the Church since 1611.
  • The only centuries old source available on the topic.
  • Used as evidence for the beatification process of Mother Mariana.
  • The first of two volumes by Fr. Pereira.

Who is Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres? She was a Conceptionist nun in Quito, Ecuador, in the 17th century who received apparitions and revelations from Our Lady. Our Lady described an enormous crisis in the Church that would take place in the 20th century. She asked Mother Mariana to become an expiatory victim for that crisis.
How did Our Lady describe this crisis? Impurity, heresy and blasphemy would innundate the Church. The remedy for that situation would be linked to the devotion of Our Lady of Good Success. She promised to intervene and defeat the evil when the abuse of power by the religious authorities reached its apex.
Why is this devotion so important for each one of us? Our Lady said she wanted to be honored under this title now, in our difficult times. She promised to give her good success to those who had recourse to her under this invocation.
Volume I reports the first three apparitions of Our Lady of Good Success, Mother Mariana’s childhood and early life in the Convent, her trials, sufferings, and favors.
