Buen Suceso Conferences Part VI: The Admirable Life of Mother Mariana - Pt. I

Vox Catholica

This is the first conference where Fr. Adam Purdy begins to unpack the life and times of the Spanish Mystic, Mariana de Jesus Torres, the Conceptionist visionary in Quito, Ecuador.

Born around 1562, Mariana de Jesus Torres lived a life of extreme holiness and advanced prayer from a young age. Father shares with us the stories from her life, from the time when she was greeted with a vision of Jesus who prepared her for her first Holy Communion, up to the first apparitions of Maria del Buen Suceso de la Purificacion.

This is the first of two parts on the Admirable Life of Mother Mariana which covers events from 1562 through Mariana's imprisonment by the leader of the Rebellious Sisters "La Capitana," where Our Lady gave Mariana the opportunity to suffer the torments of hell in order to save her soul.

The second video on the life of Mother Mariana, will be released soon and will cover the events of her life from the year 1600 up to her death in 1635.

Buen Suceso Conferences Part IV: Suffering and Charity

Vox Catholica

In the fourth installment of the Buen Suceso Conference Series, Fr. Adam Purdy walks us through the relationship between Suffering and Charity.

Father shows us how, suffering reminds us that we are not created for this world, and how as members of the Mystical Body of Christ, each one of us may offer our sufferings, trials, and tribulations in this life, in union with Christ on the Cross, and apply those merits for the benefit of one another.

Father also shows us the different levels of suffering that one may offer, culminating in offering one's self as a Victim, in imitation of Christ for the Salvation of Souls.

This conference helps us more deeply understand WHY Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres' example is so important for us to understand in this age of degeneracy and apostasy, as well as helping us understand what she offered up for us, as a Victim Soul for the 20th Century.

Buen Suceso Conferences Part III: The Value of the Religious Life

Vox Catholica

In order to fully understand the message of Our Lady of Buen Suceso, it is important for us to understand the tremendous value of the Religious and Monastic life. In this conference, Father Purdy explains the Evangelical Counsels, the nature of Consecrated Life, how Religious Vows systematically uproot sin, and how just one cloistered nun can have an impact on the conversion of sinners.

Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres allowed herself to become a victim soul for the 20th century, and sacrifice herself for the preservation of the Faith in this time of apostasy in the Catholic Church. Drawing on the works of Dom Chautard, Abbot Marmion O.S.B. and Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange and Fr. Antonio Royo Marin O.P., Fr. Purdy unpacks the meaning of the vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience, and how the religous life is an integral part to the solution to the Crisis in the Catholic Church Today.

Buen Suceso Conferences Part II: The History of Sacrifice and the Purification

Vox Catholica

This is the second installment in a series of conferences by Fr. Adam Purdy on the significance and the meaning of the apparitions of Maria del Buen Suceso de la Purification to Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres in Quito, Ecuador.

In this conference, Father Purdy walks us through a detailed history of sacrifice; from the first sacrifice after the fall of Adam, to the sacrifices of Noah, Abraham, Aaron & the Levites, and culminating in the sacrifice offered by the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Temple on the day of her Purification and the ultimate sacrifice of Our Lord on the Cross.

This history is integral to truly understanding WHAT the purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary is, it's relation to the priesthood and the religious life, and why it is important that Our Lady took the name Maria del Buen Suceso de la Purification when she appeared to Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres in Quito, Ecuador.

Father Purdy also discusses in detail the 'Quasi-Priestly' role that Our Lady plays in the mystery of redemption, using the principles Saint Thomas Aquinas on analogy.
