St. Rose of Lima was born as Isabel Flores de Oliva in Lima, Peru, on April 20, 1586. She had exceptional beauty, and some said her face was as beautiful as a rose, and she became known by this name from the time of her confirmation.

Rose was extremely spiritual and practiced self-denial and self-mortification on an almost daily basis. She modeled her life after St. Catherine of Siena and developed great devotion to Jesus, present  in the Blessed Sacrament. She had a great affinity for the poor and marginalized and did her best to help as many of them as she could.

Towards the end of her life, while ill, she was able to pray, “Lord, increase my sufferings, and with them increase Thy love in my heart.” This remarkable woman died on August 25, 1617, at the age of 31. She was canonized a saint on April 12, 1671, by Pope Clement X.
