Patron Saint Rose of Lima
Saint Rose of Lima is a seventeenth century saint who
devoted herself to the sick and the poor. She was also
gifted with her hands and created beautiful lace, embroidery,
and needlepoint. St. Rose also grew gorgeous flowers
in her gardens.
Although St. Rose of Lima created beauty with her hands,
she could not tolerate her own beauty. She scarred her
face with lye, cut off her hair, and fasted every day
to resist vanity.
Because of these talents, St. Rose is the patron saint
* Needle workers
* Against vanity
* People ridiculed for Piety
Catholics who have St. Rose as their patron often recite
the following prayers to St. Rose of Lima and wear a
St. Rose medal or a St. Rose pendant in her honor. Wearing
a St. Rose of Lima necklace is a reminder to resist
vanity and conceit, spending time helping others instead.
Prayers to St. Rose of Lima
A Prayer of St. Rose
Help me to remember what is really important:
that I am Your child
You are my Father
You love me for who I am and how I live
not what I look like or what I own.
Let me praise You Who sees into my heart,
Who is always with me
and Who eases my suffering.
St. Rose of Lima Prayer
God our Father, for love of You, St.
Rose gave up everything to devote herself to a life
of penance. By the help of her prayers may we imitate
her selfless way of life on earth and enjoy the fullness
of Your blessings in heaven. Grant this through our
Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with
You and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

dedication to the destitute, serving then the same way
Jesus did. Teach us to imitate your greatest virtues,
