Our Lady of Good Success and Pope Pius IX

Pope Pius IX was the Vicar of Christ from 1846 until 1878.  During his pontificate, he gave the Church the dogmas of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Mother and papal infallibility on matters of faith and morals.  He was also the last reigning pope of the Papal States, which were taken violently from him and the Church, eventually leading to the creation of the modern state of Italy.  A good explanation of his life and these events can be found here as well as many other sources.

Recently, I wrote a post about the apparitions of the Blessed Mother at Quito, Ecuador where she asked to be honored under the title of Our Lady of Good Success.  As I have previously explained, her appearances in the late 1500s and early 1600s were coupled with her descriptions of the problems that would befall the Church, Catholic religious, and society in the 20th Century, descriptions which have proven to be precisely accurate, and which still speak of the milieu in which we find ourselves today.  Those assertions 400 years before the events occurred have led me to begin to honor her under the title as she asked.  Today, thanks to the Da Mihi Animas blog, I discovered more remarkable events that she had discussed would happen 200 years before they did, events which indeed occurred during the reign of Pope Pius IX, from which I quote this excerpt.

 The Blessed Virgin unmistakenly predicted happenings in the life of the future Pontiff Pius IX which cannot be denied took place.  Please see the words of Our Lady of Good Success given in 1634 A.D., regarding Pope Pius IX below:

On December 8, 1634, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, three archangels and their Queen appeared to Mother Mariana. St. Gabriel was carrying a Ciborium filled with Hosts which The Blessed Virgin Mary explained:

“This signifies the Most August Sacrament of the Eucharist, which will be distributed by my Catholic priests to faithful Christians belonging to the Holy Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church, whose visible head is the Pope, the King of Christianity. His pontifical infallibility will be declared a dogma of the Faith by the same Pope chosen to proclaim the dogma of the Mystery of My Immaculate Conception. He will be persecuted and imprisoned in the Vatican by the unjust usurpation of the Pontifical States through the iniquity, envy and avarice of an earthly monarch.”

This holy Pope was of course Blessed Pius IX who fulfilled every prediction made by Our Lady.

From knowing almost nothing of these appearances of Our Lady a couple of months ago and the way I came to learn of them, I am convinced that she has brought me to the information and I have no choice but to honor the Virgin of Virgins, our Mother, under the title she asked, Our Lady of Good Success.  We just can’t make this up if we wanted to do so!
