Some Excerpts From the Visions of the Nun Mariana de Jesus Torres:
"Because in this poor country there will be a lack of Christian spirit, the Sacrament of Extreme Unction will be hardly noticed. Many people will die without receiving it, either through the negligence of their families or because of their false feelings because they want to protect the patient from seeing the true seriousness of their situation, or because they are driven by the malice of the devil, rebelling against the spirit of the Catholic Church. So many souls of countless graces and consolations will be deprived and the force they need to make the great leap from time to eternity. "
|Conceptionist Cloister in Quito|
"The effects of secular education will increase, which will be one of the reasons for the lack of priestly and religious vocations."
"The Sacred Sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed and despised."
"The devil will follow the priests of the Lord in every possible way and will proceed with cruel and subtle ruses to dissuade them from the spirit of their vocation, and many of them will perish. These corrupt priests who will be a scandal to Christians, will cause the hatred of the bad Christians and the enemies of the Catholic and Apostolic Roman Church will fall upon all the priests."
"This supposed triumph of Satan will bring the good shepherd of the Church great suffering."
"There will be almost no more innocence in the children, nor shame in women and in this moment of great need for the Church, those who should speak will remain silent.
"But you should know, beloved daughter, if your name is made known in the 20th century, many will not believe and affirm that this devotion is not desired by God.
"The secular clergy will leave much to be desired because priests will be careless in their sacred duties. Without the divine compass, they will depart from the path marked out by God for the priesthood and depend on the goods and riches."
"The Church will have to suffer a lot in this dark night! In the absence of a Prelate and Father to guide them with paternal love, gentleness, strength, wisdom and prudence, many priests will lose their spirit and bring their own souls in great danger. This will show the hour of My coming. "
"By gaining control of all social classes, the sects will try with great cunning to invade the heart of the families and destroy even the children. The devil will boast to feed with insidiousness on the hearts of the children. The innocence of childhood will almost completely disappear. Thus, the religious vocations will be lost. And that will be a real disaster.The religious will give up their sacred duties and leave the way God has marked for them. "
"Satan will gain by the errors of the faithless people in control of this earth, which will darken the sky like a black cloud on the Res Publica consecrated to the Sacred Heart of My Divine Son."
