'It was not only the good Pope Leo XIII who said these things, but Our Lady prophesied them as well Just recently, the priest who takes care of the priory of Bogota in Colombia, brought me a book concerning the apparition of Our Lady of "Buen Suceso", of "Good Success", to whom a large church in Ecuador, at Quito, was dedicated. They were received by a nun shortly after the Council of Trent, so you see, quite a few centuries ago. This apparition is thoroughly recognised by Rome and the ecclesiastical authorities; a magnificent church was built for the Blessed Virgin Mary wherein the faithful of Ecuador venerate with great devotion a picture of Our Lady, whose face was made miraculously. The artist was in the process of painting it when he found the face of the Holy Virgin miraculously formed. And Our Lady prophesied for the twentieth century, saying explicitly that during the nineteenth century and most of the twentieth century, errors would become more and more openly widespread in the Holy Church, placing the Church in a catastrophic situation, a catastrophe! Morals would become corrupt and the Faith disappear. It seems impossible not to see it today.
I excuse myself for continuing this account of the apparition but she speaks of a prelate who will absolutely
oppose this wave of apostasy and impiety - saving the priesthood by forming good priests. You can make the
application if you like, I do not wish to make it myself (Applause). I was stupefied when reading these lines but I cannot deny them, since they are recorded and filed in the archives of this apparition."
