Homily #150528n ( 09min) Play - Father gives us an overview of the life of St. Mariana of Jesus de Paredes, also known as the Lily of Quito. Her life of continual prayer, penance, and self-sacrifice culminated when she offered herself in reparation for the sins of the city, and her offering was accepted.
