'St. Rose of Lima was born in Lima, Peru.  She is remembered for her piety and chastity.  She was exceptional beautiful. She was nicknamed 'Rose' because of her beauty.   At an early age, Rose wanted to become a nun.  She prayed and fasted in secret.  It was said that she slept only two hours per night so as to have more time to prayer.  She joined the Third Order of St. Dominic. Her feast day is August 23 and St. Rose is the patroness of embroiderers, gardeners, florists, those who suffer ridicule for their piety, and people who suffer family problems.  She was canonized a Saint by Pope Clement X in 1671.'                                                                                                                          catholic.org/saints
