Blessed Pope Pius IX, Our Lady of Good Success and a Prophecy Fulfilled!

On February 7 we remember the great Pope Blessed Pius IX!  This was the Pope who was so instrumental in the life of Don Bosco. Pope Pius IX had made a request to Don Bosco, "Write down these dreams and everything else you have told me, minutely and in their natural sense." Pius IX saw John's dreams as a legacy for those John worked with and as an inspiration for those he ministered to. The Salesian Society is deeply enriched by that request as Don Bosco began later to write the Memoirs of the Oratory.

I have posted on Our Lady of Good Success on this blog in the past. Well it was in the year 1634 that she predicted the events of the life of Pope Pius IX!  This was over 200 years before Pope Pius IX took office!  The following is a summary of the prophecy of Our Lady at Quito:

Provided for the betterment of your soul, is a summary of the Catholic Church, officially approved prophecies given by The Blessed Virgin Mary under Her title of Our Lady of Good Success (1634 A.D.) in Quito, Ecuador. The Virgin Mary declared that many of the important and ominous events She foretold, would manifest themselves near the 20th Century.

The Blessed Virgin unmistakenly predicted happenings in the life of the future Pontiff Pius IX which cannot be denied took place.

Please see the words of Our Lady of Good Success given in 1634 A.D., regarding Pope Pius IX below:

On December 8, 1634, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, three archangels and their Queen appeared to Mother Mariana. St. Gabriel was carrying a Ciborium filled with Hosts which The Blessed Virgin Mary explained:

"This signifies the Most August Sacrament of the Eucharist, which will be distributed by my Catholic priests to faithful Christians belonging to the Holy Roman, Catholic and Apostolic Church, whose visible head is the Pope, the King of Christianity. His pontifical infallibility will be declared a dogma of the Faith by the same Pope chosen to proclaim the dogma of the Mystery of My Immaculate Conception. He will be persecuted and imprisoned in the Vatican by the unjust usurpation of the Pontifical States through the iniquity, envy and avarice of an earthly monarch."

This holy Pope was of course Blessed Pius IX who fulfilled every prediction made by Our Lady. His body recently exhumed, was found miraculously preserved in the tomb where it had lain for more than a century. His face still showed a striking serenity in death.
