Saint Rose of Lima (20 April 1586 – 24 August 1617), born in Peru, was a devoted Catholic known for her extreme penances and deep love for Christ. Despite her parents’ disapproval, she became a member of the Third Order of Saint Dominic and dedicated her life to prayer, fasting, and serving the poor. Rose lived a life of severe asceticism and self-denial, wearing a crown of thorns hidden beneath her veil. She was known for her great devotion to the Passion of Christ and often experienced mystical visions. Saint Rose’s remarkable piety and charity earned her the title “Patroness of South America” and “First Saint of the New World.” Her feast day is celebrated on August 23rd, and she is remembered for her extraordinary holiness, her dedication to the suffering Christ, and her care for the marginalized and sick in her community.
