Our Lady of Good Success
An Appeal to Our Readers
TIA Reprints The Admirable Life
of Mother Mariana
Dear Followers of the TIA site,
I am writing today to ask your help. As you may know, our requests for help are rare, and only when really needed. Well, this September, the month of the
Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, finds us in this situation: We need your assistance to help us spread the devotion and message of Our Lady of Good Success
We recently reprinted the two volumes of The Admirable Life of Mother Mariana, here and here, (2,000 copies of each), for a total cost of $17,500. Usually, we send one volume at a time to press, which helps with our expenses, but both were needed. So, this unplanned printing of two books puts an extra strain on our budget.
I believe it is a privilege to help make Our Lady of Good Success known in the English-speaking world, and this is what these volumes, written by Fr. Pereira in 1790, are doing. Our Lord Himself told Mother Mariana that He would “bless all those who, by their support and resources, will contribute to the making of this holy Statue, as well as all those throughout the centuries who will help to spread this devotion, and especially those who make these apparitions and its origin known.” (Vol. 2)
One way you can help make Our Lady of Good Success known is to help make the books about her available. It was not once, but several times Our Lady also promised her assistance – spiritual and material – to those who will do this, and the one thing that is for certain is that she will keep that promise.
So, contributing to this campaign is, in my opinion, an opportunity not only to help others, but to receive graces and Our Lady’s help in this life and at our Judgment.
If you remember, the Bishop of Quito, Salvador de Ribeira, donated the gold-plated silver keys for the consecration of Our Lady of Good Success in 1611. At his Judgment, Our Lady approached the seat of God to plead his cause, which was going badly because of his excessive attachment to family and coldness toward the ‘little people,’ the Quito Indians.
Our Lady, interceding on his behalf, said: “This son of mine delivered to me the keys of the cloisters of the Convent of my Immaculate Conception. With these keys, therefore, I will now close the terrible tribunal of justice and open the one of infinite mercy.”
And the judgment of mercy began. It was thanks to that small gesture the Bishop made to Our Lady of Good Success that the gates of Heaven opened for him. (Vol. 2)
I believe this poignant example helps to encourage us to do all that we can to spread this important devotion, which Our Lady told us she had reserved for our times, when the Church and society would be suffering a terrible crisis.
This it is your opportunity to make a gesture to Our Lady of Good Success. If we could rely on a donation from you – $50, $100, $500, $1,000 or whatever is possible – it would be extremely helpful and most appreciated.
I am sure Our Lady will bless you for your part in our work and the fight for the restoration of the Church and Catholic Civilization.
