The History of Victim Souls for This Century

Salvation history can be compared to a page of dotted lines ……which, after they are correctly connected, reveal the story of God the Father’s love to save souls from the fires of hell. Thus began the call for “victim souls,” starting with the apparitions of Our Lady of Good Success, continuing at Fatima, then the Works of the Cross given to Blessed Conchita, and now to the Community of Love Crucified for the Church for these decisive times.

History of Victim Souls for this Century



From 1594 to 1634, in Quito, Ecuador, a Conceptionist sister, who would become the Venerable Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres, received apparitions from the Mother of God, Our Lady of Good Success, that were approved by the local bishop during her lifetime. In 1906, when her casket was opened, her body was found to be incorrupt and filled with the fragrance of lilies. Mother Mariana is mysteriously linked to our times by the visions Our Lady showed her of the 20th Century over 350 years ago.


Dr. Marian Horvat has written on the relation between the messages of Our Lady of Good Success and the messages of Fatima.[1] 


In this teaching, I would like to reveal how the private revelations given to LC are completely united with the messages of our Blessed Mother to Mother Mariana de Jesus, the children of Fatima, and Conchita for our times.


1. She first points out that both messages stress a need for expiatory victims and the love of the Cross.


At the very first apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, Our Lady asks the children, “Do you want to offer yourselves to God to endure all the sufferings He may choose to send you, as an act of reparation for the sins by which He is offended and as a supplication for the conversion of sinners?” She asks for man’s cooperation in the divine plan, and the children agreed.


In 1582, when Mother Mariana was praying before the Blessed Sacrament, for the first time she was given to see the heresy, blasphemy and impurity that would inundate the world as punishment in the 20th century. Our Lady asked her: “My daughter, will you sacrifice yourself for the people of this time?” Mother Mariana replied, “I am willing.”


The mission of the Love Crucified Community for the Church is to bring God victim souls.


I desire many victim souls, for it is only the power of pure love that will pierce the darkness that is seeping into the hearts and minds of My people. Bring Me victim souls. 1/29/11

And to form victim souls for these “decisive times” through The Simple Path to Union with God, including our website, our teachings, and Maria’s songs.


Blessed Conchita – A New Pentecost

"I want to come back to the world in My priests. I want to renew the world of souls on manifesting Myself in My priests. I want a powerful impulse in My Church on infusing upon Her the Holy Spirit as on a new Pentecost" (Diary, Jan. 5, 1928).


But the Holy Spirit cannot descend to the world save by Christ's Cross since both missions, that of the Son and that of the Spirit, are inseparable.


"The Holy Spirit will reign the day when My sacrifice of suffering will also reign: the Cross in hearts. In so far as the Cross will not reign in souls, the Holy Spirit, He too will not reign" (Diary, May 26, 1901). [2]


Messages given to the Love Crucified Community:

As you allow the Holy Spirit to possess your will united as one with me, your Mother, through perfect obedience to the Will of God, love will triumph, and it is I, the Immaculate, and the Holy Spirit that will triumph. Thus, the reign of my Immaculate Heart and the new Pentecost will be fulfilled in you, and God's mission will expand its fruitfulness. 7/23/21


It is I who will clothe you in the white garment of purity and place the golden sash of triumph upon you. You, along with all My victim souls who persevere till the end, will be My witnesses bringing all glory and honor to God. I reveal to you the triumph in advance so that you (plural) will have the courage to persevere through the time of the great chastisement. Few will persevere but know that you are among the few who will be adorned in the gown of triumph.9/23/21


It is through God's Simple Path to Union with God that God desires to lead many souls to this perfect state of union with Me for God's glory and the triumph of God Trinity on earth. 2/14/23


2. Dr. Horvat also points out that both messages prove the Dogma of the Church that hell exists


On July 13, 1917, Our Lady told three children, ages 10, 8, 7, to “pray, pray very much because many souls go to Hell. Then she opened Her hands and showed the three children a hole in the ground, a place. That hole, said Lucy, was like a sea of fire in which we saw the souls of human forms, men and women, burning, shouting, and crying in despair.”


During her life, Mother Mariana begged Our Lord to save the soul of an insubordinate sister in the convent. He agreed that this rebellious sister would be saved, although she would be required to remain in purgatory until the end of the world. In recompense, Mother Mariana had to suffer five years on earth the pains of hell.


The MOC and MC, as God’s hidden victim souls, are called by God to save souls from hell by living daily our ordinary lives as one with Love crucified in the silence of the martyrdom of the heart in Mary’s cloister.


My mothers (MOC) must remember that during these dark times, your prayers lived with perfect trust in Me have the power to aid in the protection and salvation of many souls otherwise destined for hell. The battle is fierce, but My little one, you hold the Sword of the Spirit. Your hearts purified, emptied, and formed as My victims of pure love, one with My Mother of Sorrows, is the power of God to cast into hell the principalities of death. 6/6/20


Warn My people that the time of the great destruction is at hand, and many souls will be lost. Pray continuously for the salvation of souls in danger of hell. Your prayers have been given the power of God to save many. He hears the cry of the poor. 2/18/22


3. Dr. Horvat points out the almost complete breakdown of customs revealed in both messages.


Our Lady of Fatima said that the sins of impurity would be so great there would be almost no virgin souls. She said that many marriages are not good. Finally, Jacinta repeated continually to Lucia: “Pray much for priests and religious. Priests should be pure, very pure!”


Three centuries before, in Quito, Ecuador, on January 20, 1610, Our Lady told Mother Mariana that in the twentieth century, “the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of customs, for Satan will reign almost completely by means of the Masonic sects. They will focus particularly on the children in order to achieve this general corruption. Woe to the children of these times.” 


Jesus and Mary have formed us in the purity of their Two Hearts to console their Hearts and to combat the impurity of our times.

Purity of mind, heart, soul, and body is attained as you come in contact with Me, who am all pure and holy.  My Mother is all purity, and it is she who will dress you in the white gown of purity…Through humility and purity, you will quickly attain perfection in all the other virtues if you persevere in prayer. 3/4/11


Mary: The hands of purity remove these thorns, but purity in every act, purity in every thought, purity in every desire… It is not busyness with so much to do that consoles our Hearts, but pure love in every act, thought, and desire. The Missionaries of the Cross, above all, must be PURE and the hands of Jesus removing the thorns that pierce my Heart. Teach this SIMPLE PATH OF HOLINESS Jesus and I are leading you in, to all. 5/16/11


Be ready to approach this evil in the same way David approached Goliath. You will conquer the dragon in your littleness and purity… Second, the stone of purity, purity of mind, heart, intention, word, desire...1/18/12


One of the most important apparitions of Our Lady of Good Success to Mother Mariana was in 1634, a year before her death. As Mother Mariana prayed before the Blessed Sacrament on Feb. 2 (the Feast of the Purification - Presentation), she saw the sanctuary light extinguish itself, leaving the altar place completely dark. 


Our Lady then explained the five meanings of the Tabernacle light that had been extinguished before her eyes.


The first meaning: “At the end of the 19th century and into the 20th century, various heresies will be propagated in this land. … As these heresies spread and dominate, the precious light of Faith will be extinguished in souls by the almost total corruption of customs. During this period, there will be great physical and moral calamities, both public and private.”


However, there would be souls, she promised, who would remain faithful and would preserve the treasure of the Faith and virtues. But these would suffer a cruel, unspeakable and prolonged martyrdom. “In order to free men from bondage to these heresies, those chosen by my Most Holy Son to effect the restoration will need great strength of will, constancy, valor and confidence in God. To test this faith and confidence of the just, there will be occasions where all will seem to be lost and paralyzed. This, then, will be the happy beginning of the complete restoration.”


These chosen souls, who will restore the health of the Church, seem to be very similar to the apostles of the latter times predicted by St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort.


Jesus has formed us as His hidden victim souls, one with His Eucharistic sacrifice, His “living hosts,” to be His saints of the end times.

Do you understand, My little one? My Mercy is all, active and alive in the world, yet souls do not continue to enter the depth of My Mercy because the grace of all graces, to live consumed in My Mercy, is only reserved for the souls that respond in love to become one with My love crucified. These are the souls who are crucified with Me. These are the souls who die to themselves and, in that process, come to know, taste, and see the goodness of God. These are the souls who do not only live consumed in the ocean of God’s Mercy, but they are transformed in My Mercy and become Mercy. These are the great saints of the end times. 9/13/19


My little one, the holy saints of God – past, present, and future – are one in God. They are the first fruits as one with Me, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. These souls, at the designated time, will rise to establish the Kingdom of God on earth. These are the souls you are helping to form through The Simple Path to Union I have been leading you through. This formation for the saints of the end times will be blessed and protected by Abba, our Father, who desires to be glorified and loved by all His creation…. God Himself has come to earth through His little mustard seed to form and raise His saints of the end times to fight the great battle… 11/1/19


The second meaning is the crisis in the clergy. Many vocations would be lost, and injustice and iniquity would enter the convents and monasteries under the guise of “false charity, wreaking havoc in souls.” “The secular clergy,” She said, “will leave much to be desired because priests will become careless in their sacred duties. Lacking the divine compass, they will stray from the road traced by God for the priestly ministry, and they will become attached to wealth and riches, which they will unduly strive to obtain.


Pray constantly, implore tirelessly, and weep bitter tears in the seclusion of your heart, beseeching the Eucharistic Heart of my most holy Son to take pity on His ministers and to end as soon as possible these unhappy times by sending to His Church the Prelate who shall restore the spirit of her priests.”


God has formed us in the power of our tears, lived as one with His precious Blood to the Father. Jesus has revealed to us His tears; He has shown us that He continues to cry hidden in the Eucharist. Mary has revealed her tears to us, and the power of her sorrows lived as one with Christ.

Collect My tears for daughter Zion and offer them as one with yours in the chalice of My Mother's Immaculate Heart to the Father for the conversion of sinners and the salvation of souls, especially My priests. 10/4/23


The third meaning is that impurity will permeate the atmosphere, and there will be almost no virgin souls in the world.

“In those times the atmosphere will be saturated with the spirit of impurity which, like a filthy sea, will engulf the streets and public places with incredible license.… Innocence will scarcely be found in children, or modesty in women.”


“There shall be scarcely any virgin souls in the world. The delicate flower of virginity will seek refuge in the cloisters.…Without virginity, fire from heaven will be needed to purify these lands.…”


“Sects, having permeated all social classes, will find ways of introducing themselves into the very heart of homes to corrupt the innocence of children.”


The fourth meaning: “Masonic sects, having infiltrated all the social classes, would subtly introduce its teaching into domestic ambiances in order to corrupt the children,” she warned. It is the invasion of the secular humanism of Freemasonry and the errors of Communism. But Our Lady promised that there would be, “religious communities and individuals who would labor with valor and disinterested zeal for the salvation of souls. Against them, the impious would rage cruel wars.


The Lord has made not just me but all of us in LC prophets of these times. We are called to proclaim His voice with zeal and courage.


You must be willing to be My prophets for these times. Satan will try to silence your voice because it is My voice, but you must persevere with zeal and humility. 7/15/11


Like Mother Mariana de Jesus and the children of Fatima, we, too, have been called to suffer for the salvation of souls.


We seek victim souls to love in suffering with us to obtain the grace of salvation for many, but few respond. My little mustard seed, will you suffer more with Me for the salvation of souls? Will you give your fiat, like Mary, and persevere in suffering all that I permit in your lives as one with Love for the salvation of many souls? To possess My Heart is to possess My desire for the salvation of souls. 7/25/16


The fifth meaning is quite interesting: Our Lady said, “The fifth reason that the lamp was extinguished is due to the laxity and the negligence of those who possess great wealth who will indifferently stand by and witness the Church being oppressed, virtue being persecuted, and the triumph of the demon, without piously employing their riches for the destruction of this evil and the restoration of the Faith.”


The Queen of Heaven also noted that this quenching of the Tabernacle light was also due to the people's indifference to allowing the Name of God to be gradually extinguished and to adhering to the spirit of evil, freely delivering themselves to the vices and passions.



At Quito, just as Our Lady did at Fatima, assures us of her fortunate intervention and triumph.  The message of Our Lady of Good Success is, like that of Our Lady at Fatima, a message of great hope. She promised a band of stalwart souls filled with confidence who would help to effect the happy Restoration. She promised her intercession at the very moment when the evil will appear triumphant. This would mark, as She said, “the arrival of my hour, when, in a marvelous way, I will dethrone the proud and accursed Satan, trampling him under my feet and fettering him in the infernal abyss.” These words harmonize perfectly with the message of hope Our Lady delivered to the three children at Fatima in 1917: “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”


Jesus has called us His “heralds of hope:”

Do not be ashamed of My words (Mark 8: 38) and share the treasure of Heaven that has been entrusted to you (The Simple Path to Union with God) with many. Complete My Path and, as My Heralds of Hope teach it from the housetops. This is your mission. Respond with great zeal and courage of heart, as My warriors of love, for these decisive times. 10/20/12


Do not be afraid to be sent out as My HERALDS OF HOPE to usher in My era of peace. Do not be afraid to confront the forces of evil as My light, for it is the light of My holy remnant that will conquer the forces of darkness. BELIEVE that you are the light of the world and hold the power of God. 5/26/14


By living and becoming My Path, you become My heralds of hope, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. The Path is My formation for the saints of these decisive times, preparing the path for My Second Coming. 6/27/16
