Saint Rose of Lima’s real name was Isabel. They nicknamed her “rose” just because she was so beautiful. In fact, she had a ridiculous number of suitors. Ignacio de Loyola, after being severely injured with a cannonball, ended up with one leg shorter than the other. Saint Drogo, who traveled to Rome as a pilgrim more than ten times, ended up his days in a small cell, after being stricken with a terrible disease that totally deformed him.

If you want to know more about these and some other great saints, we’ve got your back. Here’s three of our “very, very brief introductions to the saints.” You can find more of these on our Facebook profile, https://www.facebook.com/AleteiaEn/
