Our Lady of Good Success DVD Question
I was wondering if the
DVD of Our Lady of Good Success
by Marian Horvat was available in Spanish or subtitles?
If not, is there anything similar I can buy that will explain the story to my Spanish-speaking friends?
We are considering re-shooting that DVD on Our Lady of Good Success because its producer has changed his position and now is attacking TIA and Traditionalist Catholics as too radical. He has adopted a moderated Progressivism and is presenting Our Lady of Good Success from this new focus.
For this reason, we don’t have access to the original and cannot introduce Spanish subtitles, as you suggest. If we are able to shoot our own footage on this topic, as we hope to do in the near future, then we shall have an English version with the suggested subtitles.

Spreading the Devotion to Our Lady of Good Success
Dr. Marian Horvat,
I came across
a novena to Our Lady of Good Success
a little while ago. Then, I went to You Tube to learn a little more about this devotion. I learned that you
translated some materials
and are considered an authority on this devotion.
I am wondering how I can help spread this devotion in America. Also, I searched but didn't see that there is a church dedicated to Mary in this title. Would be interest to learn more and to help.
Dr. Horvat responds:
Thank you for your interest in spreading the devotion of Our Lady of Good Success.
I suggest that first you visit our
page on Our Lady of Good Success
and read the different parts of it on this topic. If you have any doubts or questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
We also have several
books, booklets and CDs
that deal with the history and the devotion of Our Lady of Good Success. To read and disseminate this material would be a precious way to spread this important devotion. Our Lady promised her help, both spiritual and material, to all those who would help to spread this devotion specifically in these times. And she is a good Mother who always keeps her promises.

Communist China's Show of Muscle
Just a piece of news to tie in with
your story about the Vatican betrayal
of China with the recent accord Pope Francis signed on September 22.
You mentioned that the first response of China was a slap in the face to the Vatican, by an immediate demand that all CPA bishop affirms their loyalty to the Communist State.
Here's a second slap to the face. For the first time Communist Chinas is sending two delegate Bishops to the
Youth Synod in Rome
. But who picked those bishops? None other than the Chinese communist authorities.
It is a clear indication of who in the future will govern the so-called Catholic Church in China. Ironic also that Communist China chooses to send two of its bishops to a youth synod, when the government has made new rules banning youth under age 18 from attending religious services.
It reinforces the idea that sending the bishops is just a show of muscle, telling the Vatican clearly who will be in charge of things with this new 'accord.'
Please keep up the reporting on this important topic.
vs Pro Life Movement
I saw an interesting series of video's which shows how the Pro -Life movement needs to be more Catholic and emphasize the Virgin Mary. These video's put out by
shows the importance of conversion to the Catholic Church so that not just the bodies of the babies and mothers can be saved but, more importantly, their souls.
I wondered if you had seen this series yet and if you agree that the pro life movement is very weak on these points? Looking at these video's has made me think in a deeper way about how the Right to Life movement could be more effective.
The video's pointed out that the false ecumenical movement in the conciliar Church has caused the Pro Life movement to not emphasize the powerful mediation of the
Virgin Mother Mary and that we will not turn this evil around until the Queen of Heaven is put at the center, along with her great love for the Child Jesus the second person of the Blessed Trinity.

The Essential Sermon on Sacrilegious Communions V
I wanted your opinion because I know how much you have fought against the progressivist liberal agenda to water down everything Catholic. This has carried over into the pro Life movement and weakened it.
These videos point out this problem of de-emphasizing Mary as well as that of ignoring the connection that contraception is part of the abortion anti-life mentality because the Pro Life Catholic leaders are afraid of offending Protestants and non-religious people.
These videos demonstrate how, unfortunately, Catholics probably contracept almost as much as Protestants do (which is why we cannot even replace our population).
The last video on Sacrilegious Communions demonstrates that sacrilegious communions (and also the toleration of it by the clergy) and the sins of Catholics crucify Jesus anew and also contribute to the breakdown of faith, the clergy and the family, and lead to contraception as well as abortion, which go against our nature and offend God and His natural law.
Keep up the great work you are doing through Mary in Christ Jesus with your new
Murky Waters of Vatican II video
I look forward to watching the
and your opinion on these Marian Pro-Life Videos.
Mr. Guimarães responds:
Thank you for your consideration and support. They mean a lot to me.
Given my busy agenda, I have not yet had the time, unfortunately, to watch the videos you had the kindness to send me, but your letter gives me, I believe, an idea of what they are promoting.
Based on the summary you offered, I would say that there is a simplification in encompassing the whole pro-life movement in just one block and criticize it as such. There are pro-lifers who are Protestant, others who are ecumenical as you mentioned. Both deserve the criticism you mentioned. But there are others like the writers of ProLifeNews who normally take a very good stance on Catholic issues.
The latter are denouncing Progressivism in the Church in a very efficient way. By doing so they are helping the Counter-Revolution much more than those members of
who are afraid to criticize religious progressivist authorities.
I agree 100% that it is important to spread devotion to Our Lady and make reparation for sacrilegious Communions and blasphemies.
However, to weep for blasphemies without fighting the real enemy can be a pretext for cowardly people to dissimulate their fear. They shield themselves behind “sublime” excuses in order not to enter the front lines against Progressivism. In my opinion, real love for the Church, Our Lord and Our Lady is proved in the effective fight to expel the progressivist enemies from inside the Catholic Church.
So, I have more hope that writers at ProLifeNews – who do not fear denouncing the real enemies of the moment – will move toward the full Catholic position more quickly than members of the
– who cover for progressivist authorities and try to put down pro-lifers under “sublime” pretexts.
I hope this answer may help you to see things more clearly.
