Oh God, thou didst make to bloom an iris from amongst thorns, Saint

Blessed St. Mariana de Jesus, Lily of Quito, thou didst live a most
innocent, pure and radiant life in this world by constant prayer and
penance, by faithful love to God and by serving the weak and less
fortunate men. Intercede for us that God may grant us the
grace to imitate your virtues in order that we may persevere in the way of
the Gospel and join thee in Eternity forever.
