In 1577, five Conceptionist Sisters travelled from Spain to Quito, Ecuador, to start the first Convent.
Mariana de Jésus Torres, one of the Nuns, is said to have seen The Blessed Mother. On 2 February 1599, as Mariana was Praying, The Blessed Mother appeared to her and commanded a statue be made to her likeness.

The following Text is from ONE PETER FIVE,
unless otherwise stated.
"As for The Sacrament of Matrimony, which
symbolises the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and deeply profaned. Freemasonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the aim of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin and encouraging the procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of The Church.
"The Catholic spirit will rapidly decay; the precious light of Faith will gradually be extinguished until there will be an almost total and general corruption of customs. Added to this, will be the effects of secular education, which will be one reason for the death of Priestly and Religious Vocations.
"The Sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed, and despised, for in this Sacrament, The Church of God and even God, Himself, is scorned and despised since He is represented in His Priests.
"The Devil will try to persecute the ministers of The Lord in every possible way; he will labour with cruel and subtle astuteness to deviate them from the spirit of their Vocation and will corrupt many of them.
"These depraved Priests, who will scandalise the Christian people, will make the hatred of bad Catholics and the enemies of The Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church fall upon all Priests.
"This apparent triumph of Satan will
bring enormous suffering to the good Pastors
of The Church, the many good Priests, and
The Supreme Pastor and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, a prisoner in The Vatican, will shed secret and bitter tears in the presence of his God and Lord, beseeching light, Sanctity and perfection for all The Clergy of the World, of whom he is King and Father.
"Further, in these unhappy times, there will be unbridled luxury, which will ensnare the rest into sin, and conquer innumerable frivolous Souls who will be lost. Innocence will almost no longer be found in children, nor modesty in women.
"You will see this from Heaven, my beloved daughter, where you can no longer suffer, but your daughters and successors will suffer, those beloved Souls already known to you who will placate The Divine Ire.
"They will have recourse to Me
under the invocation of Our Lady of Good Success, whose statue I ask and command
that you have made for the consolation and preservation of My Convent and of The Faithful Souls of that time, an epoch when there will be a great Devotion to Me, for I am Queen of Heaven under many invocations.
"This Devotion will be the shield,
between Divine Justice and the prevaricating World,
to prevent the release of God’s formidable punishment that this guilty
"During that epoch, The Church will find herself attacked by terrible hordes of the Masonic sect, and this poor Ecuadorian land will be agonising because of the corruption of customs, unbridled luxury, the impious press, and secular education.
"The Vices of Impurity, Blasphemy, and Sacrilege, will dominate in this time of depraved desolation, and that one who should speak out will be silent".
