Do You Know Our Lady of Good Success and Her Apparitions to Sr. Mariana in Quito, Ecuador?

I wrote just a bit about them here. Any holy person described as an "industrious little bee" is an intercessor after my own heart. Sr. Mariana left Spain with her Aunt, an abbess, and several other sisters to found a convent in Quito in the 16th century. She was only 13 and a young postulant, but on fire with love of God. She bravely faced the dangerous trip across the ocean and then the long and arduous treck across the mountains of Ecuador where she spent the rest of her life. Sr. Mariana of Jesus, intercede for us that we might be as diligent to grow in the spiritual life as you were. Our Lady of Good Success, pray for us.
