St. Mariana de Jesus de Paredes (Oct. 31, 1618 to May 26, 1645)

One of my favorite things to do for fun was to have tarot or regular playing card readings with my cousin Cindy. The two of us would have them done with no expectations of an outcome and then we'd discuss what the readers said afterward.
"You're going to meet a man wearing a pinky ring," a psychic named Dorothy told Cindy.
The same woman described a guy I dated for 9 years, two days before I met him. She also warned me not to get back together with him during a year-long split.
"It's going to happen in April," Dorothy predicted. "Honey, please, whatever you do, don't get back with him."
And, as much as tarot reading is a form of entertainment for some or hope for others, I believe that the cards are just a prop put in front of someone. The accurate reader is intuitive. It's something that can't be explained.
Psychic hotlines are more popular than ever. But, it's nothing new. Centuries ago people were searching for just as many answers.
St. Mariana de Jesus de Paredes, who was bestowed with the gift of prayer, was born on Oct. 31, 1618 in Quito, Ecuador. She was a prophet who could foresee the future and was especially accurate at predicting matters of the heart.
St. Mariana de Jesus de Paredes was also able to cure diseases simply by making the sign of the Cross. She died on May 26, 1645. She is the patron saint of Ecuador and loss of parents. She is known as the Lily of Quito. Canonized: 1950.
Her feast day is May 28.
