Pilgrimage Quito 2015 Day2: Our Lady of Good Success

On our second day we went as a group over the Conceptionist Convent to see Our Lady of Good Success. No words can describe the beauty of Our Lady and as many have said before no picture can do her justice. In person she looks different than in the pictures. We spent much of the morning praying there and I was able to say my last day of my novena to Our Lady of Good Success before her. We later went and visited the Jesuit church just up the street which was amazing. The entire inside of the church is covered in gold leaf. Then we went back and had Mass at the Conceptionist Convent, which was also incredible.

Later we enjoyed a nice dinner with friends who also helped arrange everything for us. A few of us ended the day and went back over for a special private prayer vigil before our Lady of Good Success from 10:30 to midnight. It was a perfect day number 2. Hopefully today we will get to see some very cool things that our friends here in Quito have arranged for us privately. Below are a few of the pictures I took. Internet here is slow so uploading is at primitive speeds.
