Dear Friends of the Apostolate of Our Lady of Good Success,


Almost 20 years ago, we were introduced to Our Lady of Good Success!  Little did we know what an adventurous journey Our Lady had chosen to take us on! One of these adventures you will find below which we still enjoy to this very day...
 Some may find the following article hard to believe, perhaps it is not for the faint of heart or for those who do not believe in the infiltration of the Church by Masonry ...
Ten years ago, this past month of March, we contacted the office of Fr. Luigi Villa and were introduced to his "Operaie di Maria Immacolata e Editrice Civilita" and "Chiesa viva" in Brescia, Italy.



This search for Fr. Villa came about as a direct result of questioning the proposed exhumation of the body of Padre Pio in 2008. I had recalled reading an article in Catholic Family Newsnewspaper in 2002 about a "secret exhumation" that had supposedly taken place by Cardinal Oddi during which Padre Pio's tomb was found to be empty except for a few pieces of clothing!


As I well-remembered that article that was written by Anne Cillis, I went in search of the person who had written a more recent magazine article from 2006 about the building of a new church in San Giovanni Rotundo that appeared to look as if it was built as a Masonic Temple.  I had received an email with a partial translation of that article into English, which wasn't much to go by, but felt intuitively that if anyone would know the truth about Padre Pio, it would have to be this man who wrote this article and so I went online in search of this author. (Fr. Villa's informative Special Edition about this Masonic Temple with secret symbolism embedded in the art is here:






I called a few places that were conservative Catholic Italian websites - one of which told me who exactly it was that wrote that article. I couldn’t believe it!  I was so excited that I called that very minute and rang the office of Fr. Luigi Villa who answered with an Italian "Hello"- i.e."Pronto.” In my exuberance, I had forgotten that I would have trouble communicating with him and one of his religious sisters 





that very minute and rang the office of Fr. Luigi Villa who answered with an Italian "Hello"- i.e."Pronto.” In my exuberance, I had forgotten that I would have trouble communicating with him and one of his religious sisters took the phone and told me to call his right-hand man- Franco Adessa.  It is, then, that our work began with Fr. Luigi Villa.


We soon discovered that Fr. Luigi Villa had been given a papal mandate by Pius XII to fight Ecclesiastical Freemasonry. This special mission was brought about my an unplanned for visit to San Giovanni Rotundo in 1956with a friend as Fr. Villa was on sabbatical due to an illness.  He had no intention of meeting Padre Pio but through a series of events, he came to his cell in the monastery and had a meeting which lasted 1/2 hour in which Padre Pio gave him a special assignment: you must dedicate your entire life to defend the Church of Christ from the work of Freemasonry, especially the ecclesiastical [Freemasonry].  In the meeting, Padre Pio told him to go to the Bishop of Chieti and he would help him.... The rest was history …

After discovering those extraordinary details of Fr. Villa's life, however, we decided that Fr. Villa's mission was a mission directly in line with what Our Lady of Good Success spoke of in her prophecies!!! (

Link to his biography online:

For on January 21, 1610, Our Lady of Good Success stated:
“Thus I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and from shortly after the middle of the 20th century, in what is today the Colony and will then be the Republic of Ecuador, 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 principally on the children in order to sustain this general corruption. Woe to the children of these times!” (Vol. II, p. 2
And also:
“As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and deeply profaned. Freemasonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the aim of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin and encouraging the procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church.” (Vol. II, p. 23)

We must admit we felt as if Heaven had led us right to him for giving us an answer on whether Padre Pio’s tomb was empty.  Little did we know that there was so much more he would share with us in the future.  So, via Franco Adessa, I addressed my problem with the upcoming exhumation due to the Anne Cillis’s article and wanted his impressions and his advice on this unusual topic... However, we immediately felt drawn to his work as we felt it would to assist us in our work of spreading the message of Our Lady of Good Success reflecting on the target he had been aiming for all of these years- FREEMASONRY! – and Ecclesiastical at that!!!

He agreed about the secret exhumation and had very good reason to believe of the veracity of Anne Cillis's article on the empty tomb of Padre Pio.  It was never stated at that time - any details of his reasoning but he used Anne's article as the beginning of a series of articles that continues to this day and numbers about 70 installations titled:  "The Secret of Padre Pio's Empty Tomb" recently condensed into a Special Edition which is titled the same. 
We introduced him to "Nuestra Senora del Buen Suceso" - aka Our Lady of Good Success.  We sent him every book that the Postulator for the Cause had written in Spanish and then Dr. Marian Horvat's English books on the subject, he studied them thoroughly and came back to us stating emphatically that he had now made her "General" of his "Chiesa viva" and that She, Herself, would lead all future battles that were to be waged against the enemies of the Church!  We then collaborated with a Special Edition No 413 of his Chiesa viva called: "Our Lady Condemns Masonry." which came out in February 2009.
 After the Special Edition on Our Lady of Good Success, we asked what we could do to assist him, and he came out with a “battle plan” that began with the printing of his book that had stopped the beatification of Paul VI in 1998 the title being: "Paul VI beatified?" He told us quite emphatically that this was the book that had stopped the beatification process in the 1998 – dead in its tracks as this book was sent out to every priest in Italy!!!
In Wikipedia under the "Beatification of Paul VI", under History, it states:
Diocesan process
On 18 March 1993 "nihil obstat" ("nothing against") was declared under Pope John Paul II which opened the cause for beatification. The diocesan process commenced on 11 May 1993 in Rome and thus, he was granted the title of Servant of God. The postulator assigned to the cause was Father Antonio Marrazzo. The diocesan process concluded its business on 18 March 1998.[7] Father Luigi Villa, playing the part of the devil's advocate, released a book titled Paul VI: Beatified? which was written in opposition to the cause of beatification.[8]
The Apostolate printed this book in 2009 with another reprint in 2011 adding Appendix 3. The PDF is attached to this email (see below) so please spread this far and wide so people will be aware that Fr Villa fought to keep this man off the altars! Included is Fr. Luigi Villa's 2011 Special Edition on Paul VI titled: "The Pope Who Changed the Church” and his last "Letter to the Cardinals" written right before his death in 2012 to issue his final warning to Mother Church of the truth about Paul VI!

Not too long before Fr. Villa died, he received a mysterious and eerie anonymous phone call in which the voice gloatingly stated: "After your death, we will put Paul VI on the altars!!!!"

Fr. Luigi Villa died on November 18th, 2012. It will be 6 yrs. since Fr. Villa’s death when the Vatican will take this step to do this reprehensible and yes, one could even be so bold as to say, heretical act in October of this year!  (N.B. just announced – date set for October 14th, 2018)


The spine-chilling voice did not lie as one can see in the facts from the Internet’s Wikipedia:
On 20 December 2012, Pope Benedict XVI, in an audience with the Cardinal Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints Angelo Amato, declared that the late pontiff had lived a life of heroic virtue, which means that he could be called "Venerable”.[145] A miracle attributed to the intercession of Paul VI was approved on 9 May 2014 by Pope Francis. The beatification ceremony for Paul VI was held on 19 October 2014, which means that he can now be called "Blessed". [146] His liturgical feast day is celebrated on the date of his birth, 26 September, rather than the day of his death as is usual since the latter falls on a major Church feast.  []
And also, here it states:
 On 6 March 2018, the Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, speaking at a plenary meeting of the International Catholic Migration Commission in Rome, confirmed that Paul VI would be canonized in at the close of the synod on 28 October 2018… On 6 March, the pope confirmed the healing as a miracle, thereby approving Paul VI's canonization; a consistory of cardinals in May will determine the official date for Paul VI's canonization.
 From Crux News, online edition, in the March 6, 2018 from an article titled: Vatican confirms that canonization of Paul VI set for October, one can read: 
“Adding specificity to what was already known about the impending canonization of Blessed Paul VI in 2018, Italian Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the pope’s top deputy as the Vatican’s Secretary of State, said Tuesday that the sainthood rite will take place in late October at the close of a meeting of the Synod of Bishops, an institution Paul VI himself founded.”
The information that Fr. Villa compiled in his dossiers speaks for itself! “Paul VI beatified?” is over 350 pages!  One has only to read his books to see that this “canonization” will be a historical cataclysm for the Church! 
Please let us invoke Fr. Villa and ask him to once again stop the enemies of the Church from causing more damage and more loss of souls! May he and Padre Pio- his guide and protector - guide and protect us during this time.  May God grant us the grace of Final Perseverance to stand by and take watch over this sad Crucifixion and presumed Demise of our beloved Church in order to see Her rise glorious once again!
One of Fr. Villa’s favorite historical figures was Gabriel Garcia Moreno. Even before we had introduced him to Our Lady of Good Success, he was well aware of him, having published his own book on his life in 1997. One can only imagine Fr. Villa must have often repeated those last words of Garcia Moreno: “You can kill me, but God does not die!”
In closing we leave you with Fr. Villa's motto: "The Truth Will Make You Free" (John 8, 32) to give us all confidence to continue to spread the Truth and Keep the Faith!


We ask for your continued prayers!  We ask us to join us in continuing Fr. Villa's fight to help defend the Church from Ecclesiastical Freemasonry! Fr. Villa encouraged us via his collaborator, Franco Adessa- "to fight to the end"!!!!
A good traditional priest from Eastern Europe wrote this prayer to Fr. Luigi Villa upon learning of his death - perhaps it is one we should say daily:
Our Good Lord Jesus Christ, King of Universe and King of all kings, we thank Thee for all the graces which Thou hast bestowed upon Thy faithful priest, Fr. Luigi Villa, in his long life. He fought bravely and without compromise against Freemasonry, and against the deadly enemies of Thy Church and all society.
        We beseech Thee, Our Good Lord, through merits and supplications of this courageous Catholic priest, that Thou wouldst grant to Thy Church a victory against Her enemies, and to us, these graces which we need so much in this time... (mention request)
       May Fr. Luigi Villa receive the honor to one day be proclaimed blessed and patron saint of all who fight against Freemasonry and all the enemies of Thy Church. Through the most loving intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Catholic Church. Amen.
