The truism, a prosecutor can use a Grand Jury to indict a ham sandwich is conversely more true: a prosecutor ( Gov. Abbott sock puppet DA Devon Anderson via her DA office sock puppets) through her corrupt Key Man Jury System exonerates ham sandwiches of being ham sandwiches, while indicting anyone who publicly calls a ham sandwich a ham sandwich.

We have met the enemy, and they are us. – Pogo-

The truism, a prosecutor can use a Grand Jury in indict a ham sandwich is conversely true:
A prosecutor, in this instance Gov. Abbott’s Harris County DA sock puppet Devon Anderson via her DA office delegated Assistant DA sock puppet, the same prosecutor she used as a proxy to exonerate Dr. Douglas Karpen,  exonerates ham sandwiches of being ham sandwiches, while indicting anyone who publicly calls a ham sandwich a ham sandwich.

(That prosecutor was not Lauren Reeder, so for “Pro-life” groups to claim a conflict of interest in regards to Lauren Reeder is a red herring that will not pass judicial review.  Lauren Reeder is a red herring to distract from the real criminal conflict of interest,  Devon Anderson’s Key Man Grand Jury that exonerated Douglas Karpen used the same prosecutor to exonerate Planned Parenthood and indict Center for Medical Progress. Planned Parenthood and Chip Davis want defense attorney Woodhead for CMP defendants to bark up the wrong tree in regards to Reeder, while not focusing in on the Anderson/Davis/Karpen/Perry Key Man Jury connection. This is how Woodhead will sell the defendants of CMP done the river while exonerating Devon Anderson as “pro-life” and simply doing her job in following the evidence.  Woodhead as former head of the Harris County Republican Party supported Devon Anderson to replace husband Michael as the “One”.   Center for Medical Progress’s David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt are being set up by Woodhead, Abbott, Patrick, and Devon Anderson to go to jail in order to cover up the real reason for Douglas Karpen’s exoneration and Planned Parenthood I-45 Gulf Coast’s exoneration:  Rick Perry, Greg Abbott, AG Paxton owned United Surgical Partners Stock of which both Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45 and Karpen’s Aaron Clinic are “partnered” as “ambulatory surgical” or outpatient as USP partenered late term abortion clinics.  In a criminal conflict of business interest, Perry as Governor signed his lobbyist sister’s bill HB2 to create a surgical abortion monopoly for Mila Perry Jones’ corporate sponsors United Surgical Partners and their greatest stock holder Baylor Medical School INC. who Mila’s husband the most powerful lobbyist in the state lobbies for.  Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast would be a prime beneficiary to gain abortion market share and aborted babies for processing  when the HB2 “outpatient” mandate costing up to one million dollars paid to USP would close the doors of  non Planned Parenthood, non-USP affiliated independent non government supported “abortion mills” that have over ninety percent of the surgical abortion business in Texas. Planned Parenthood I-45 Gulf Coast, the largest late term abortion clinic in the Western World which was built to do hundreds of abortions daily, languishes with easily less than twenty.  Only being one of the world’s largest suppliers of  aborted baby parts, second only to China, and a raised 500 + million stipend from Paul Ryan’s budget after being exposed by CMP does Planned Parenthood manage to keep the doors open. ”

Baylor Medical School supplies abortionists for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45.  In turn, Baylor Medical School, INC. is an integral part of Cardinal Dinardo’s Catholic Health Initiative St. Luke as is Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45 which Cardinal Dinardo oversaw the sale of a Sterling Bank property to be renovated into the present clinic a minute away from Cardinal Dinardo’s new Exxon/Chase Co-Cathedral.  In turn Cardinal Dinardo allows Planned Parenthood I-45 Baylor Medical School abortions privileges at St. Joseph Medical Center meeting the second mandate of HB2: Abortionists must have admitting privileges in a thirty mile radius of the clinic where they perform abortions.  Cardinal Dinardo literally allowed Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45 to come into existence tacitly by his public silence, and behind the scenes to provide logistic support for child sex slaving of which Houston is the largest hub in the world making his bones with Freestate Galveston Legacy Tilman Fertita and Carlos Slim Helu’s Sinaloa Federation Cartel.  Cardinal Dinardo in conjunction with Planned Parenthood and Catholic Charities  is making millions transporting covertly in conjunction with DHS tens of thousands of “victims of child sex slaving” via GW’s 2008 Wilberforce Act, and now he is doubling down on thousands on non Syrian, non Christian, male ISIS Jihadi’s covertly being brought to the US through Catholic Relief Service and Catholic Charities while Cardinal Dinardo’s Feritita syndicate member, Greg Abbott makes a show going after a pipsqueak liberal bleeding heart refugee advocate mouse, while turning a blind eye towards Cardinal Dinardo.

Devon Anderson  (who recently said “Anyone who pays attention can see that I am pro life”) received a $25,000 dollar DA election campaign contribution after exonerating via Judges Mike and Devon’s decade old notoriously corrupt Key Man Jury,  Houston’s own Dr. Kermit Gosnel , Dr. Douglas Karpen, from Karpen’s defense attorney, Chip Davis.  Devon Anderson parlayed Davis’ campaign contribution with being publicly endorsed by Lt. Gov. CIA Dave Dewhurst in the Chronicle.  CIA Dave “morally outraged”  initially called for an infanticide investigation of Dr. Douglas Karpen after  You Tube testimony (Mark Crutcher -Life Dynamics)  by three  employees of Karpen’s Aaron clinic went viral claiming “babies were aborted alive every day.”  CIA Dave, a protege of Claus Barbie in the Bushes’ Bolivian Cocaine Coup  during Iran/Contra that Jeb Bush like his grandfather Prescott Bush Union/Chase banker for the Nazi’s , as Texas Commerce/Chase banking agent to the Colombian, Costa Rican,  and Mexican cartels,  praised Devon in print for doing  in protecting Texas Women and the unborn by exonerating Karpen. In turn, Devon parleyed CIA Dave’s endorsement  with that of  Dewhurst’s Republican primary rival for Lt. Gov.  “Pro-life” Dan Patrick author of the Texas Sonogram Bill.   Devon then parleyed this with the stone silence on the Devon and Abbott’s orchestration of  Karpen’s exoneration, by  Elizabeth Graham’s Texas Right to Life PAC,  who endorsed Greg Abbott and David Dewhurst, but not Dan Patrick- all “pro-life” Republicans- as well as giving indicted former “pro-life” governor Rick Perry who appointed Devon to Harris County DA in a criminal conflict of interest after her husband Mike died, at the fund raising Pro-Life Gala event the Texas Right to Life do gooder of the year award for signing the fraudulent HB2 bill into law as.  Devon had a job well done in exonerating Perry had the  tacit support of then AG Abbott running for Governor to replace Rick Perry who appointed Devon to exonerate Douglas Karpen to cover up Perry’s own criminal conflict of interest in signing into law HB2.  As a result, Devon won election as Harris County DA in 2014 against her pro-abortion, lesbian, de facto same sex married, Mayor Parker, Planned Parenthood endorsed Democratic opponent.  Of course Cardinal Dinardo, former head of the NCCB Pro-life Action Committee was silent about Douglas Karpens exoneration and Devon Anderson’s run for election.   Cardinal Dinardo is silent about Planned Parenthood’s selling of baby part’s, CMP’s expose, and de funding or funding  Planned Parenthood.  Cardinal Dinardo with his catamite Cardinal Wuerl were responsible for the passage of Obamacare with the full public support of the NCCB and Pope Benedict.  Planned Parenthood’s Cecil Richard’s who wrote the Obamacare HHS abortion, contraception and sterilization then mandated the bishops and Catholic institutions being it hospitals, universities, or the Little Sister’s of the Poor do it.

 Chip Davis who had previously used the Andersons, Mike and Devon, both judges,  and their Key Man Jury to politically smear former DA Pat Lykos, to  replace her with Mike Anderson.  When Mike Anderson died, “Pro life” Governor Rick Perry appointed Devon his widow to fill the remainder of her husband’s term .  Chip Davis and Perry both sought  to cover up  Karpen’s live birth abortion and  sale of late term aborted alive babies to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45.  

Devon Anderson delegated the same DA assistant prosecutor that exonerated Douglas Karpen to exonerate Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast of selling baby part’s  sold to them by Douglas Karpen.




A no brainer, 2 +2 =4, (in this case Obama/Bush Core Curriculum math 2+2 = 5) this blog said exactly what Devon Anderson in cohoots with fellow Dr. Douglas Karpen exonerator then Texas AG Greg Abbott to save Rich Perry’s good name from legal discovery in a criminal conflict of interest by signing the completely fraudulent HB2 bill into law as Texas Governor written by Perry’s sister Mila Perry Jones, a United Surgical Partners lobbyist, would do months before Devon exonerated Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45 and indicted Center for Medical Progress’s David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt. Like Hitler in Mein Kampf, Devon Anderson told in an August press conference exactly what she was going to do to David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of Center for Medical Progress in exonerating Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-4. And last Monday annouced that she did it while scape goating her Key Man Grand Jury in doing so. This blog has been receiving hundreds of views at Holytransparency. since Monday. The whole history of the HB2 fraud, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45, Annise Parker, Cardinal Dinardo, Rick Perry, Tilman Fertita, The Bushes, Pope JPII and Fr. Maciel and Carlos Slim Helu’s Sinaloa Federation drug, arms, and child sex slaving cartel for the last three years has been researched and documented at Learn the truth!

Do not trust Greg Abbott, Elizabeth Graham’s Texas Right to LIfe, Dan Patrick and other two faced liar “Pro life” abortion political and financial contribution profiteers who all said nothing publicly about Douglas Karpen’s exoneration by Devon Anderson’s Chip Davis Key Man Grand Jury orchestrated by Greg Abbott attempting to save Governor Pony Boot’s bacon from Karpen’s Attorney, Chip Davis’ trial discovery. CIA Dave Dewhurst thanked Devon in the Chronicle – December 12th, 2013-for exonerating Karpen and protecting Texas women and unborn children by doing so. 1984 Double Think you think, of which CIA Dave is well programmed! “Pro-Lifer” Dan Patrick who stole credit for the Texas Sonogram Law actually supported Devon Anderson for election after she exonerated Karpen, as she supported Dan the Sham against CIA Dave Dewhurst. We have met the enemy and they are us. Look at Tea Party darlings: Paul Rino, Gold Sacks slave ( Goldmen Sachs -Rothschild Neo Con Federal Reserve banking front bankrolls same sex marriage legalization throughout the world along with PP International LBGT agenda and Sterilization, Contraception, and Abortion in conjunction with the Bush/Clinton CIA) and natural born Canadien Citizen Ted Cruz (renounced his Canadien citizenship in 2014 to run for President) and Anchor Baby, Marco Rubio. Marco lived with high school sweetheart after graduating high school, cruzing Miami parks for teenagers. Rubbiio’s high school flame later started a porno production business filming anal sex between young Black and Hispanic males. Besides this, Marco, Tea Party presidential darling, gets sex for play as Miami’s Senator from a DC lobbyist, and has children with a NFL cheerleader other than his NFL cheerleader wife. Marco dreamed of playing in the NFL in high school… Marco suffered house foreclosure this year, and credit card insolvancy always (at I have more assets than Marco Rubio, and I have a vow of poverty.

Wake up! The anti-christ comes from among us. Do not be like David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of Center for Medical Progress indicted by Devon Anderson choosing Jared Woodfill, who supported Devon’s appointment by Guardisil Rick as Harris County DA as their Defense. Attorney. Newsflash to David and Sandra- dump Woodhead, get Chip Davis, If this is the way you roll, Chip is cynical enough to do it, and you will be exonerated for sure. It’s a no brainer! 2+2 =5 everytime in Devon’s Criminal Justice Key Man Grand Jury System.

And to further the disgust in this case, former Harris County Republican Party Chair Jared Woodfill, a plaintiff’s attorney, has announced that he is representing the defendants. That’s right, the defendants have placed their lives in the hands of a man with no criminal law experience (search the District Clerk’s website with Woodfill’s bar number 00788715). My guess is that they want to use this as a platform for their issue. That is a huge mistake and only reinforces the idea that the entire movement is a farce. Woodfill is now attacking Anderson in the press which is completely hypocritical considering that he is the one that presented her to the HCRP Executive Committee as “the one”.

In 2012, Woodfill faced a collection lawsuit from a New York City firm which claimed that he owed nearly $30 million for a loan on which he defaulted in 2010. The money was obtained to finance a suit filed by Woodfill against the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway on behalf of some residents of Somerville in Burleson County, who claim that BNSF caused their health problems. Woodfill and Pressler procured a loan of $5 million in March 2006 from a hedge fund that went out of business in 2010. Because of interest and other fees, the amount owed ballooned to more than $29 million. (Sounds like Marco Rubio)

If anyone reading this has any contact with David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of Center for Medical Progress (I tried long ago and had no response ever. The information I researched and documented could have saved them from painting themselves into this corner) tell them to get another attorney immediately! One that has nothing to do with the Establishment Bush Republican Party or Tea Party in Texas (unless it’s Louis Gomer – he would be perfect) or Elizabeth Graham’s Texas Right to LIfe and the phony “Pro-life” procontraception anti natal movement in general. If they go with Woodhead, It’s another no brainer, 2=2 =5, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of Center for Medical Progress they will be sold down the river and convicted by the same Rockefeller/Bush Republican cabal behind the exoneration of Dr. Douglas Karpen.

Like the morons in Oregon who arrogantly set themselves up only to be “bitches” used for Barak’s ISIS Jihadi gang rape by executive order of the Second Amedment, likewise David and Sandra’s conviction will be used to lionize Planned Parenthood, and destroy the First Amendment as well as the Right to LIfe. As my grandmother always said, “The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions”. Get a competent, uncompromised lawyer-fight for the First Amendment or you will be convicted and all of your best intentions for the Center for Medical Progress’s Planned Parenthood expose will pave the road to Hell for unborn and born alike..

I was at Planned Parenthood I-45 last Saturday, and they are processing baby parts again just as they did before the CMP expose in the wake of Devon’s exoneration of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast i-45 and indictment of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of Center for Medical Progress. And why not, they get even more millions from Paul Rino. Who’s going to stop them now or even cares. Nobody except Mary with God. Newflash! Devon Anderson’s Key Man Grand jury is Greg Abbott’s and AG Paxton’s investigation. Devon works directly for them both. Of course she does. PP’s renewed baby processing Includes 5 to 9 month old babies aborted alive by Dougals Karpen who doesn’t spoil the meat by ringing their knecks at his United Surgical Partners Aaron Clinic and sold to PP – I-45 Gulf Coast for hundreds and thousands of dollars.

Baylor Medical School. INC. owns through United Surgical Partners stock Karpen’s clinic as well as being medical partners with Planned Parenthood I-45. Baylor Medical School supplies abortionists to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast I-45. I guess since it is in house- different branches of the Cardinal Dinardo’s abortion/child sex slaving medical logistics conglomerate that Baylor Medical school does not pay for their fetal body part specimens like the other four Texas Universities. Just asking.

Deus Providebit!


Ted Cruz, Two Faced Carl Rove Presidential Candidate Gold Sachs Trojan House Liar is not Eligible

Ted Cruz is not eligible to be president

Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz
View Photos The Texas Republican was the first major presidential candidate to formally declare a bid.
By Mary Brigid McManamon January 12
Mary Brigid McManamon is a constitutional law professor at Widener University’s Delaware Law School.
Donald Trump is actually right about something: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is not a natural-born citizen and therefore is not eligible to be president or vice president of the United States.

The Constitution provides that “No person except a natural born Citizen . . . shall be eligible to the Office of President.” The concept of “natural born” comes from common law, and it is that law the Supreme Court has said we must turn to for the concept’s definition. On this subject, common law is clear and unambiguous. The 18th-century English jurist William Blackstone, the preeminent authority on it, declared natural-born citizens are “such as are born within the dominions of the crown of England,” while aliens are “such as are born out of it.” The key to this division is the assumption of allegiance to one’s country of birth. The Americans who drafted the Constitution adopted this principle for the United States. James Madison, known as the “father of the Constitution,” stated, “It is an established maxim that birth is a criterion of allegiance. . . . [And] place is the most certain criterion; it is what applies in the United States.”

Cruz is, of course, a U.S. citizen. As he was born in Canada, he is not natural-born. His mother, however, is an American, and Congress has provided by statute for the naturalization of children born abroad to citizens. Because of the senator’s parentage, he did not have to follow the lengthy naturalization process that aliens without American parents must undergo. Instead, Cruz was naturalized at birth. This provision has not always been available. For example, there were several decades in the 19th century when children of Americans born abroad were not given automatic naturalization.

[Opinion: Yes, Ted Cruz is a “natural-born citizen”]

Here’s why Republicans are fighting over Ted Cruz’s birthplace
Play Video1:45

Some of the Republican presidential candidates are going after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), saying his birthplace could count against him in a presidential election. Here are the facts. (Sarah Parnass/The Washington Post)
Article I of the Constitution grants Congress the power to naturalize an alien — that is, Congress may remove an alien’s legal disabilities, such as not being allowed to vote. But Article II of the Constitution expressly adopts the legal status of the natural-born citizen and requires that a president possess that status. However we feel about allowing naturalized immigrants to reach for the stars, the Constitution must be amended before one of them can attain the office of president. Congress simply does not have the power to convert someone born outside the United States into a natural-born citizen.

Let me be clear: I am not a so-called birther. I am a legal historian. President Obama is without question eligible for the office he serves. The distinction between the president and Cruz is simple: The president was born within the United States, and the senator was born outside of it. That is a distinction with a difference.

In this election cycle, numerous pundits have declared that Cruz is eligible to be president. They rely on a supposed consensus among legal experts. This notion appears to emanate largely from a recent comment in the Harvard Law Review Forum by former solicitors general Neal Katyal and Paul Clement. In trying to put the question of who is a natural-born citizen to rest, however, the authors misunderstand, misapply and ignore the relevant law.

First, although Katyal and Clement correctly declare that the Supreme Court has recognized that common law is useful to explain constitutional terms, they ignore that law. Instead, they rely on three radical 18th-century British statutes. While it is understandable for a layperson to make such a mistake, it is unforgivable for two lawyers of such experience to equate the common law with statutory law. The common law was unequivocal: Natural-born subjects had to be born in English territory. The then-new statutes were a revolutionary departure from that law.

[Opinion: Trump’s bogus birther attack on Ted Cruz]

Second, the authors appropriately ask the question whether the Constitution includes the common-law definition or the statutory approach. But they fail to examine any U.S. sources for the answer. Instead, Katyal and Clement refer to the brand-new British statutes as part of a “longstanding tradition” and conclude that the framers followed that law because they “would have been intimately familiar with these statutes.” But when one reviews all the relevant American writings of the early period, including congressional debates, well-respected treatises and Supreme Court precedent, it becomes clear that the common-law definition was accepted in the United States, not the newfangled British statutory approach.

Third, Katyal and Clement put much weight on the first U.S. naturalization statute, enacted in 1790. Because it contains the phrase “natural born,” they infer that such citizens must include children born abroad to American parents. The first Congress, however, had no such intent. The debates on the matter reveal that the congressmen were aware that such children were not citizens and had to be naturalized; hence, Congress enacted a statute to provide for them. Moreover, that statute did not say the children were natural born, only that they should “be considered as” such. Finally, as soon as Madison, then a member of Congress, was assigned to redraft the statute in 1795, he deleted the phrase “natural born,” and it has never reappeared in a naturalization statute.
When discussing the meaning of a constitutional term, it is important to go beyond secondary sources and look to the law itself. And on this issue, the law is clear: The framers of the Constitution required the president of the United States to be born in the United States.

Our Lady of Good Success and Our Lady of Fatima, Prophecy Fulfilled Before Our Eyes

I am so grateful to have discovered “Our Lady of Good Success”.  The term “Good Success” is from a Spanish Expression “Buen Exito”  which means success in giving a child to the light-or child birth. I am filled with joy to see through faith the absolute centrality in Salvation History – Deus Providebit-of the union of the Immaculate Heart of the Mother of God, Mary, the Queen of Heaven and the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the King of the Universe in the redemption of the  Mystical Body of Christ,  the Church Militant, crucified on earth by our sins and offenses especially of indifference, lust, and greed.

Our Lady of Good Success and Our Lady of Fatima: Prophecies for Our Times

Marian T. Horvat, Ph.D.


At the end of the 16th century, Our Lady appeared to a Conceptionist sister from Quito, Equador, then colony of the Spanish Crown, under the title of Our Lady of Good Success and commanded that a statue be made. She desired this to do a great good not only for the convent and the Ecuadorian nation, but for the entire West, and even the whole world. She desired this because the convent would stand in special need of her protection in those early days of the Colony, but also because She desired to intervene during a great crisis in the Church and society that would occur in the 20th century.

Our Lady of Good Success: clearly the Queen of the Reign of Mary

The queenly image of Our Lady of Good Success, with its stately majesty and supernatural air, is no ordinary statue. It was miraculously completed by the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael in the year 1611. Readers who have been following the story in the Catholic Family News know the beautiful story, and others can find it in my book entitled Our Lady of Good Success, Prophecies for Our Times.

It also tells the amazing story of Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres (1563-1635) who offered her sufferings and life for the crisis in the Church she was given to see that would occur in the 20th century. Mother Mariana was a Conceptionist sister who traveled from Spain to the New World at age 13 to help to found the Royal Convent of the Immaculate Conception (a Franciscan branch) in Quito. Favored with many singular gifts from heaven, this chosen soul was given to know many future events, especially the situation of the Church in our days.

This is not the place to tell about her extraordinary life and the many trials and sufferings she underwent. Rather, what I would like to do here is tell some of the prophecies revealed to her that concern our own times and show how they harmonize perfectly with the better-known prophecies that Our Lady made at Fatima in 1917.

Our Lady told Mother Mariana that in our lamentable times, heresies would abound, the corruption of manners and customs would be almost complete and the light of the Faith would be nearly extinguished. To atone for the many blasphemies and abuses and to hasten the day of the triumphant restoration, this 17th-century religious was asked to become an expiatory victim for our times. Thus, in a special way, the vocation of Mother Mariana links her to the crisis in the Church and society that few would deny that we are witnessing today.

Ten years ago I made a pilgrimage to see the miraculous statue of Our Lady of Good Success, and came upon a 500-page biography of Mother Mariana written 100 years after her death by the Franciscan Provincial Fr. Manuel Souza Pereira, who himself died in the odor of sanctity. He based his work on the documents of the convent archives, the autobiography written by Mother Mariana herself that received the approbation of the 10th bishop of Quito, Most Rev. Pedro de Oviedo, and the biography of Franciscan provincial Fr. Louis Catena, who wrote her life shortly after her death.

After Vatican II, the Rules and religious habits changed, and vocations dwindled

I translated the work of Fr. Pereira to English [now available in two volumes]. As I progressed with the work, I was amazed to find that Our Lady, in a three-centuries-old approved apparition, was addressing the problems of our own days. There is absolutely no way that a Spanish religious in the 1600s could have had any idea of what would be occurring in our century. But there it all was: Our Lady warned Mother Mariana that the Sacraments would be abused and set aside, that vocations would perish because of poor formation and education in Catholic schools and monasteries, that impurity would inundate the streets like filthy ocean waters so that “there would be almost no virgin souls.”

But there is an even more profound link to the Fatima message. Our Lady told Mother Mariana that her name would only become known at the end of the 20th century. The 3rd secret of Fatima was supposed to be revealed to the world in 1960. Mysteriously, it was not. In 1960 Pope John XXIII gave the incomprehensible message in direct contradiction to the command of Mother of God: “Questo non è per i nostri tempi.” [“This matter is not for our times.”] For “the good of the Church and the welfare of mankind,” until now the three popes who have followed him have followed his example, rather than the command from the Heavenly Queen.

However, the message of Our Lady of Quito warns repeatedly of a crisis in the Church and the clergy – both secular and regular. Could this be the third part of the message of 1917, still not revealed today: the apostasy in the clergy, the general extinguishing of the light of Faith, a conspiracy against the Church, the dominion of Satan? In my view, Fatima and Quito form, as Atila Sinke Guimarães notes in his foreword to my book, “two sides of the same gothic arch. It is the message of the Queen of the Universe for Catholics in our present day conjuncture.”

Prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success & Our Lady of Fatima

A prophet is a person with a message for the future, an intercessor with Heaven who begs man’s cooperation with grace. When God sent Prophets in the Old Testament it was to remind men to come back to the truth. In the 20th century Our Lord has sent His Mother, the Queen of Prophets: “Go to earth and destroy heresies.” The Fathers of the Church have written Our Lady is the hammer of heresies.

I believe that if you study message of Our Lady of Fatima, you will find the call for conversion and prayer – especially the Rosary – but also many warnings against the heresies and errors of our times. Our Lady at Quito confirms these warnings of Fatima almost 300 years before in a very descriptive and open way to the humble Conceptionist sister in Quito, Ecuador.

In this first part I plan to highlight certain similarities that struck me in the stories of Quito and Fatima that will end with a few of the prophecies relating to the crisis in the Church.

1. Need for expiatory victims

We are approaching the end of the 20th century, the century of man, who has embraced every pleasure and adopted the maxim of the Revolution of the 60s: It is only forbidden to forbid. It is appropriate that the messages of Fatima and Quito speak to man of the need for expiatory victims and the love of the Cross.

Our Lady of Fatima: her message confirms Our Lady of Good Success

It is very interesting for me to see that at the very first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, Our Lady asks the children, “Do you want to offer yourselves to God to endure all the sufferings He may choose to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended and as a supplication for the conversion of sinners?” She asks for man’s cooperation in the divine plan, and the children agreed. Lucia said, “Yes, we do.” “Then you are going to suffer a great deal, but the grace of God will be your comfort.”

Likewise, at Quito, Our Lady asked the cooperation of Mother Mariana in her great mission that connects us to our days.

In 1582, when Mother Mariana was praying before the Blessed Sacrament, for the first time she was given to see the heresy, blasphemy and impurity that would inundate the world as punishment in the 20th century. Our Lady asked her: “My daughter, will you sacrifice yourself for the people of this time?” Mother Mariana replied, “I am willing.” From the violence of the shock of previewing the horrors of our day, Mother Mariana fell dead. Historic and documented evidence record that this holy religious truly died in 1582 and resurrected. Before the divine tribunal, she was given the choice to remain in heaven or return to suffer in the world. Following the example of Our Lady, who left the glories of heaven to protect her children during those difficult first years of the fledgling Church, Mother Mariana chose to return to life to expiate for the great sins of our times.

It seems there is also a special message for us in the way the children of Fatima and Mother Mariana accepted and embraced the cross. The mystery of the cross is such a very special grace that Eternal Wisdom only bestows it on His best friends. “It is a greater happiness for St. Peter,” writes St. John Chrysostom, “to be imprisoned for Jesus Christ than to be with Him in His glory on Mt. Thabor; it is a greater glory for him to wear his prisoner’s chains than to bear in his hands the keys to Paradise.”

Eternal Wisdom tells us that the number of fools is infinite. That is, St. Louis de Montfort says, because the number of those who do not know the value of the Cross is infinite, and they carry it despite themselves. You should thrill with joy, he says, because the cross you carry is a gift so precious, it would arouse the envy for the Blessed if they were capable of envy (Love of Eternal Wisdom, p. 97).

2. The existence of Hell

The First Secret of Fatima breaks the myth, the lie of 20th century, that hell does not exist. On July 13, 1917, Our Lady told three children, ages 10, 8, 7, to “pray, pray very much because many souls go to Hell.

Jacinta after she had seen Hell

Then she opened Her hands and showed the three children a hole in the ground, a place. That hole, said Lucy, was like a sea of fire in which we saw the souls of human forms, men and women, burning, shouting, and crying in despair.” Mary said to the children: “You have seen Hell where sinners go when they do not repent.” A Roman Catholic dogma: The existence of Hell.

During her life, Mother Mariana begged Our Lord to save the soul of an insubordinate sister in the convent. He agreed that this rebellious sister would be saved, although she would be required to remain in purgatory until the end of the world. In recompense, Mother Mariana had to suffer five years on earth the pains of hell. For five years, she suffered all the tortures of the senses reserved for souls in that terrible place and the most intense suffering of the sense of the loss of God.

It seems very clear that Our Lady wanted 20th century man to realize, in face of the “theories” of universal salvation of von Balthasar – who has had enormous influence on the post conciliar Popes and our present John Paul II – that hell exists: it is a place, and it is not empty.

3. The almost complete breakdown of customs

During Jacinta’s stay at the orphanage of Our Lady of Miracles in Lisbon in 1920, Our Lady told her, “The sins that lead more souls to hell are the sins of the flesh.” There were other prophecies She revealed to the little girl: “Styles will come that will offend Our Lord very much. Persons who serve God should not follow the styles. The Church does not have styles. Our Lord is always the same.” She said that the sins of impurity would be so great there would be almost no virgin souls. She said that many marriages are not good, that they do not please Our Lord and are not of God. Finally, Jacinta repeated continually to Lucia and Mother Godinho: “Pray much for priests and religious. Priests should be pure, very pure!”

Over the altar in the Conceptionist Covent in Quito

Three centuries before, in Quito, Ecuador, on January 20, 1610, Our Lady appeared carrying a crozier in Her right hand and her Divine Son in her left arm so that, “all will know that I am merciful and understanding. Let them come to me, for I will lead them to Him.” She told Mother Mariana that in the twentieth century, “the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of customs, for Satan will reign almost completely by means of the Masonic sects. They will focus particularly on the children in order to achieve this general corruption. Woe to the children of these times.” Obviously, she is speaking of the secular humanist revolution about which so much has been written that has completely invaded the secular as well as religious institutions of our times.

(It is surprising to see Our Lady referring to the Masonic sect already at the beginning of the 17th century. It was only in the 17th century that Freemasonry generally looks for the first emergence of the structure that has filtered down to us today. However, Freemasonry was closely connected to the Rosicrusianism and can be traced even to sects that existed in the Middle Ages.)

Our Lady continued, describing the abuses that would attack each of the Sacraments: “Woe to the children of these times because it will be difficult to receive the Sacrament of Baptism and also that of Confirmation.” She warned that the devil would assiduously try to destroy the sacrament of Confession and Holy Communion. She lamented the many sacrileges and abuses of the Blessed Sacrament that would occur. The Sacrament of Extreme Unction would be little esteemed and many people would die without receiving it, thus denied assistance they would need for that “great leap from time to Eternity.”

The Sacred Sacrament of Holy Orders would be ridiculed, oppressed and despised. The demon would labor unceasingly to corrupt the clergy and would succeed with many of them. And these “depraved priests, who will scandalize the Christian people, will incite the hatred of the bad Christians and the enemies of the Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church to fall upon all priests. This apparent triumph of Satan will bring enormous sufferings upon the good pastors of the Church.”

About the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, she said this: “Masonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the objective of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin. … The Christian spirit will rapidly decay, extinguishing the precious light of Faith until it reaches the point that there will be an almost total and general corruption of customs.

In these unhappy times, there will be unbridled luxury that would conquer innumerable frivolous souls who will be lost. Innocence will almost no longer be found in children, nor modesty in women. In this supreme moment of need of the Church, those who should speak will fall silent.”

This forewarning resounds loudly in the ears of those who have followed the Fatima apparitions: “In this supreme moment of need of the Church, those who should speak will fall silent.” It is impossible not to ask: Why was the third secret of Fatima not revealed in 1960 according to the mandate of the Queen of Heaven? Why have the conciliar and post-conciliar popes remained silent in face of the command of Heaven? Further, in face of so many blasphemies and blatant abuses – which you can see in a very vivid way on the firm the video recently released by the Spirit of Chartres Pilgrimage Committee titled “What We Have Lost” – why have so many persons in places of authority remained silent?

Where is the healthy reaction to so many violations against tradition, the Magisterium and even basic common good sense?

The crisis in the Church

Finally, we arrived at one of the most important apparitions of Our Lady of Good Success to Mother Mariana in 1634, a year before her death. As Mother Mariana prayed before the Blessed Sacrament on Feb. 2 (the Feast of the Purification – Presentation), she saw the sanctuary light extinguish itself, leaving the altar place completely dark. This is significant in itself for those of us today who have reason to believe that, in fact, in many churches across the world the Tabernacle light has, quite literally, been extinguished.

Our Lady then explained the five meanings of the Tabernacle light that had been extinguished before her eyes. The first meaning: “At the end of the 19th century and into the 20th century, various heresies will be propagated in this land. … As these heresies spread and dominate, the precious light of Faith will be extinguished in souls by the almost total corruption of customs. During this period, there will be great physical and moral calamities, both public and private.”

However, there would be souls, she promised, who would remain faithful and would preserve the treasure of the Faith and virtues. But these would suffer a cruel, unspeakable and prolonged martyrdom. “In order to free men from bondage to these heresies, those chosen by Most Holy Son to effect the restoration will need great strength of will, constancy, valor and confidence in God. To test this faith and confidence of the just, there will be occasions where all will seem to be lost and paralyzed. This, then, will be the happy beginning of the complete restoration.”

These chosen souls, who will restore the health of the Church, seem to be very similar to the apostles of the latter times predicted by St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort.

The second meaning: The crisis in the clergy, both secular and regular. Many vocations would be lost, and injustice and iniquity would enter the convents and monasteries under the guise of “false charity, wreaking havoc in souls.” “The secular clergy,” She said, “will leave much to be desired because priests will become careless in their sacred duties. Lacking the divine compass, they will stray from the road traced by God for the priestly ministry, and they will become attached to wealth and riches, which they will unduly strive to obtain.

“How the Church will suffer during this dark night! …[ Lacking a prelate and father to guide them with paternal love, gentleness, strength, wisdom and prudence, many priests will lose their spirit, placing their souls in great danger.”]

The third meaning: Impurity will permeate the atmosphere and there will almost no virgin souls in the world. I have already mentioned this prophecy, so will continue on to the next.

The fourth meaning: “Masonic sects, having infiltrated all the social classes, would subtly introduce its teaching into domestic ambiences in order to corrupt the children,” she warned. It is the invasion of the secular humanism of Freemasonry and the errors of Communism. But Our Lady promised that there would be, “religious communities and individuals who would labor with valor and disinterested zeal for the salvation of souls. Against them, the impious would rage cruel wars.”

The fifth meaning is quite interesting: Our Lady said, “The fifth reason that the lamp was extinguished is due to the laxity and the negligence of those who possess great wealth who will indifferently stand by and witness the Church being oppressed, virtue being persecuted, and the triumph of the demon, without piously employing their riches for the destruction of this evil and the restoration of the Faith.”

The Queen of Heaven also noted that this quenching of the Tabernacle light was also due to the indifference of the people in allowing the Name of God to be gradually extinguished and in adhering to the spirit of evil, freely delivering themselves to the vices and passions.

Fatima and Quito: Messages that confirm each other

It seems to me an opportune moment for this story of Our Lady of Good Success and Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres to become better known to the English-speaking public. For there, just as she did at Fatima, she asked for prayer and sacrifice to make amends for the many outrages and abuses of this unhappy century. But also, at Quito, just as She did at Fatima, she assures us of her fortunate intervention and triumph.

A profound sadness in the gaze of Our Lady of Fatima: Our Lady of the Chastisement

For the message of Our Lady of Good Success is, like that of Our Lady at Fatima, a message of great hope. She promised a band of stalwart souls filled with confidence who would help to effect the happy Restoration. She promised her intercession at the very moment when the evil will appear triumphant and when the authority abuses her power. This would mark, as She said, “the arrival of my hour, when, in a marvelous way, I will dethrone the proud and accursed Satan, trampling him under my feet and fettering him in the infernal abyss.” These words harmonize perfectly with the message of hope Our Lady delivered to the three children at Fatima in 1917: “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

This is the secret for success of the Counter-revolution: to be convinced of the victory Our Lady promised. It is not sufficient to merely maintain a firm resolution to suffer… it is necessary to have something that is both more onerous while more suave. It is to maintain the conviction that in the end the things will end up succeeding.

To become worthy of the success, the victory that Our Lady predicted, we need a supernatural confidence. We need to be entirely convinced of that victory – the promise of Our Lady at Fatima in 1917: “In the End My immaculate Heart will Triumph.” We need to be completely convinced of the happy restoration: the words of Our Lady at Quito in 1634: “To test this faith and confidence of the just, there will be occasions where all will seem to be lost and paralyzed. This, then, will be the happy beginning of the complete restoration.”

A final consideration

It seems to me that gazing on the countenance of Our Lady of Fatima, we see Our Lady of the Chastisement. Her maternal gaze looks down with a great mercy, but also a profound sadness, on a suffering humanity, an agonizing mankind. Lucia recounts that by the 3rd apparition, Our Lady had begun to reveal the sadness in her soul. In the last apparition, Lucia recounted, with an even sadder expression, She said, “Let them offend Our Lord no more, for He is already much offended.” In this face, we see the prophet of the chastisement.

Our Lady promised her triumph

Our Lady of Good Success appears as mother and as a triumphant queen. Her gaze assures us of the final victory and triumph of the Immaculate heart of Jesus and Mary, the “happy restoration” when they will rule again as King and Queen in the spiritual and temporal spheres.

She is clearly the Queen of the Reign of Mary. She assures us in the moment of the great trial, the chastisement, of Her victory. She enheartens us that although it be difficult, our way is the correct way. She enlivens us to pray and to fight for that confidence, that peace, that victory still to come in our days. She invites us to fulfill the prophetic role, however small it might be, that She has for us in the achievement of this victory.

It seems an opportune moment for this story of Our Lady of Good Success and Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres to become better known to the English-speaking public. The reader will also be interested to know that Our Lady of Good Success promised, “consolation and preservation to those faithful souls” who foster this devotion to her during the 20th century, for it is her desire and that of her Divine Son that she be known now under this invocation so filled with promise: Our Lady of Good Success.

May all who have recourse to her under this title feel her maternal goodness and receive “good success” in all their good endeavors and needs. May knowledge of this devotion hasten the day when she will be known and honored everywhere as Queen of Heaven and Earth as she has prophesied – In Quito and in Fatima.
