Santa Rosa from Lima

Born in Lima in Peru in 1586, she showed great self-control from an early age, as when she did not groan at the amputation of a gangrenous finger.

Against the parents' decision to want to marry her, she cut her beautiful long hair and put on the Dominican tertiary dress.


Forced to painful material and spiritual harassment, a hut was built in the garden of the paternal home, starting the long years of atrocious mystical suffering.

He did not eat, did not sleep and prayed to the Lord to increase his painful experiences.

He died on August 24, 1617.


It is warmly revered as the first flower of holiness in Latin America.
