We are most grateful for your continued Masses, Holy Communions, Rosaries, and other prayers and sacrifices for John.
Since John’s diagnosis, we have prayed through the intercession of Our Lady of Buen Suceso (‘Good Success’ in English), the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and St. Philomena. Other saints, blesseds, venerables and servants of God have been invoked as well, including St. Pio of Pietrelcina, St. Charbel Makhlouf and Venerable Pauline-Marie Jaricot.
Over two months ago, we decided to intentionally pray to Venerable Mother Mariana of Jesus (Mariana Francisca de Jesús Torres y Berriochoa). Mother Mariana was the Conceptionist abbess of Quito who received the extraordinary apparitions of Our Lady of Buen Suceso (‘Good Success’). In this way, any cure could be attributed to Mother Mariana’s intercession, and eventually used for her cause for beatification and eventual canonization.
We kindly ask that you continue to join us in praying for John, through the intercession of Mother Mariana:
Blessed Mother of Buen Suceso (‘Good Success’), Thou didst have such a privileged love for Thy daughter and confidant, the Servant of God, Mother MARIANA FRANCISCA DE JESÚS TORRES, during her mortal life. Obtain for us from Our Lord Jesus Christ, that we may prove Thy preferential love for MOTHER MARIANA by granting us the grace we now ask of Thee (mention your request); and the extraordinary favor of seeing her soon raised to the honor of the altars, so that the Church and the Ecuadorian nation may count on a powerful intercessor who will save us from the physical, moral, and social evils that beset our lives and bring us to the brink of despair. Save us with Thy prayers and Thy perpetual love for Quito, all of Ecuador, and Thy children who have recourse to Thee!
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.
Mother Mariana, pray for us!
With our prayers and gratitude in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
The Vennari Family
