During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Our Lady of Good Success appeared in Quito, Ecuador, to a Spanish nun of the Conceptionist Order, Mother Mariana of Jesus Torres y Berriochoa, whose little-known but extraordinary life has a direct connection with our days.
Prophecies About The Holy Pontiff?
But when [evil] seems triumphant and when authority abuses its power, committing all manner of injustice and oppressing the weak, their ruin shall be near. They will fall and crash to the ground.
Then will the Church, joyful and triumphant like a young girl, reawaken and be comfortably cradled in the arms of my most dear and elect son of those times. If he lends an ear to the inspirations of grace–one of which will be the reading of these great mercies that my Son and I have had toward you–we shall fill him with graces and very special gifts and will make him great on earth and much greater in Heaven. There we have reserved a precious seat for him because, heedless of men, he will have fought for truth and ceaselessly defended the rights of the Church, deserving to be called ‘martyr.’
Pray constantly, implore tirelessly, and weep bitter tears in the seclusion of your heart, beseeching the Eucharistic Heart of my most holy Son to take pity on His ministers and to end as soon as possible these unhappy times by sending to His Church the Prelate who shall restore the spirit of her priests.
Novena to Our Lady of Good Success, January 25 – February 2
Matthew 16:18 (RSVCE)
18 And I tell you, you are Peter,[a] and on this rock[b] I will build my church, and the powers of death[c] shall not prevail against it.[d]
a. Matthew 16:18 Greek Petros
b. Matthew 16:18 Greek petra
c. Matthew 16:18 Greek the gates of Hades
d. 16.18 The name “Peter” comes from the Greek word for “rock.” Jesus makes him the foundation on which the church is to be built. The word “church” means “assembly” or “society” of believers. The Hebrew equivalent is used in the Old Testament to indicate the chosen people. In applying it to the church, Jesus shows it to be the Messianic community foretold by the prophets.
These verses contain the prophecy of the seer who has eaten the scroll, a prophecy about the tribulation the Church will undergo as a prelude to the events at the End that follow the seventh and final trumpet blast (11:15ff). The Church is symbolized by the temple and the altar of Jerusalem, which God protects. The rest of the city is that part of mankind that does not belong to the Church and before whom the Church bears witness to the point of martyrdom.
Jerusalem was overrun by the Gentiles in the time of Antiochus IV Epiphanes, who profaned the temple and installed a statue of Zeus (cf. 1 Mac 1:54); much worse destruction was done by the Romans who razed temple and city, leaving not a stone upon a stone (see Mt 24:21; Mk 13:14-23; Lk 21:20-24). Taking his cue from all these events, St John prophesies that the Church will never suffer the same fate, for God protects her from the power of her enemies (see Mt 16:16-18). Christians may suffer persecution in one way or another, but physical or moral violence cannot overpower the Church because God protects her. “The Church, ‘like a stranger in a foreign land, presses forward amid the persecutions of the world and the consolations of God’ (St Augustine, The City of God, 18, 51), announcing the cross and death of the LORD until he comes (cf. 1 Cor 11:26). But by the power of the risen LORD it is given strength to overcome, in patience and in love, its sorrow and its difficulties, both those that are from within and those that are from without, so that it may reveal in the world, faithfully, however darkly, the mystery of its LORD until, in the consummation, it shall be manifested in full light” (Vatican II, Lumen gentium, 8).
Here the dragon’s onslaught is presented in terms of the Church in her suffering. The woman who gives birth to a male child is an image of the Mother of the Messiah, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and of the Church who “faithfully fulfilling the Father’s will, by receiving the word of God in faith, becomes herself a mother” (Vatican II, Lumen gentium, 64). By means of the Church, a person becomes a member of his Body (cf. notes on Eph 4:1-16). It is in this sense that we can say the Church is the Woman who gives birth to Christ.
The struggle the church maintains against the powers of evil is described using imagery taken from the Exodus (a time of great peril for the people of Israel). God brought the Israelites into the wilderness “on eagles wings” (Ex 19:4), that is, by ways man could not devise. When the prophet Isaiah announces the liberation from captivity in Babylon, he says that “they shall mount up with wings like eagles” (Is 40:31). Over the course of history, the Church enjoys this same divine protection that enables her to have the intimacy with God symbolized by the wilderness. The period of “a time, and times, and half a time” (v. 14), that is, three and a half years, was regarded, conventionally, as the duration of any persecution (at least from Daniel 7:25 onwards).
The river of water (v. 15) symbolizes the destructive forces of evil unleashed by the devil. Just as in the wilderness of Sinai the earth swallowed up those who rebelled against God (see Num 16:30-34), so will these forces be frustrated in their attack on the Church, for, as or LORD promised, “the powers of death [hell] shall not prevail against it” (Mt 16:18). “This is nothing new. Since Jesus Christ our LORD founded the Church, this Mother of ours has suffered constant persecution. In times past, perhaps, the attacks were delivered openly. Now, in many cases, persecution is disguised” (St Josemaría Escrivá, In Love with the Church, 18).

ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 2019, I WAS ASKED TO PRESENT MYSELF TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE AT THIS CHURCH.
I had been to this Church for the very first time, on my own initiative, the previous evening on Tuesday, June 18, 2019, for the 7 PM Mass
THERE IS A GREAT HIDDEN MYSTERY IN THE MURAL ON THE WALL BEHIND THE ALTAR
On Wednesday Morning June 26, 2019, after the 8 AM Mass, Dolores, a very long-time parishioner, took me to introduce me to Fr. Freddy and during our conversation, she said the banners had stayed up during the prior week for a recently ordained priest.
Let your imagination run wild. In addition to the degeneration evident in society on so many levels, it appears those who are presented to us as female are actually male and vice-a-versa.
Mark Wahlberg is quoted as saying:
“Being a Catholic is the most important aspect of my life[.]”
If it is, she hasn’t lived up to the calling of her faith by being truthful and letting us know that she is actually a she who has been presented to as a heroic he:
Just on this cover alone, the devils have diabolically entertained themselves by making God’s creation into an abomination, fooling those trusting in the Christian Order and getting a hellish laugh out of it.
All those PEOPLE’S “Sexiest Man Alive” are actually women including Brad Pitt [behind is a shy, sweet, very beautiful and vulnerable woman who for some reason I have always noticed a tinge of sadness without knowing why. Now, I know], John F. Kennedy Jr., etc.
They also use the last name to mock some more:
What is the “PIT” with “him”?
What is “LONG” with “her”?
What “WOOD” does “she” carry under?
No comment necessary.
Well, you get the idea.
Back to the assault on the family:
Mom ran off with a lesbian. No! Mom ran off with a man presented as a woman. And that man is now a danger to all her children both female and male.
Dad is hanging out with the boys. No! Dad is with females passed off as men.
24 Another parable he put before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. 26So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also.
It should be clear the presentation of Mark WAHLBERG [now your turn as to their meaning of her last name] as a practicing Catholic [not e.g. Muslim or Mormon (I have just given them their “M&M”), etc.] serious with her faith is nothing more than a mockery and hatred for the true and Catholic Faith and the taunting of the other faithful, ‘look at this abomination we present to you as a faithful Catholic and you have no clue, and just think, how many of these are now priests or even Bishops without you knowing?’
In hell, the unrepentant persons especially males who lusted after their Playboy males will have this additional revelation as torment, to the ultimate and wicked amusement of the devils tormenting them.
The children of the wicked are the most to be pitied.
