The Virgin of Good Success warned us


Quito, the capital of Ecuador, has several Marian shrines, among which is the chapel of "Maria Santisima del Buen Suceso" (Our Lady of Good Success), in the convent of the Immaculate Conception.

The origin of this shrine dates back to the astonishing revelations received by Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres (1553-1635), who was abbess and one of the foundresses of the Monastery of the Immaculate Conception of Quito.

Between 1588 and 1634, Mother Mariana of Jesus Torres was favored with several apparitions of the Virgin Mary. During the apparition of February 2, 1610, the Virgin Mary condemned Freemasonry and announced to Mother Mariana the severe persecution that the Masonic sect would inflict on the Church in the 20th century. The visionary offered her life in atonement for impiety in the 20th century.

Devotion to Our Lady of Good Success was officially approved by all the bishops of Quito since February 2, 1611. The cause of beatification of Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres was opened on August 8, 1986, by the Archbishop of Quito.

In 1991, the chapel of the Immaculate Conception convent was declared a Marian shrine of the Archdiocese of Quito.
