Reliquary description

Reliquary made of silver in the 19th Century, safely kept under a glass we can see the relic resting on a bigger cross on top of a red silk background surrounded by silver bullion thread.

At the back of the reliquary, we find an Episcopalian wax seal holding the intact red silk threads and sealing the relics inside and ensuring its authenticity.

History of Saint Mariana of Jesus de Paredes
Mariana of Jesus de Paredes (Spanish: Mariana or María Ana de Jesús de Paredes; October 31, 1618 – May 26, 1645) is a Catholic saint and was the first person to be canonized from what is now Ecuador. She was a recluse who is said to have sacrificed herself for the salvation of her city. She was beatified by Pope Pius IX in 1853 and canonized by Pope Pius XII in 1950. She is the patron saint of Ecuador and venerated at the Church of the Society of Jesus in Quito. Her feast day is celebrated on May 26 by the nation and on May 28 by the Franciscan Order.
