St. Rose of Lima, Patron Saint of Vanity and South America

St. Rose of Lima was born in Lima, Peru. From an early age, Rose had a deep desire to become a nun. She eventually joined the Third Order of St. Dominic, despite opposition from her family. Rose lived a life of asceticism and mortification, spending her days in fasting and prayer. Rose died at age thirty-one, and is the patron saint of embroiderers, gardeners, florists, those who suffer ridicule for their piety, and people who suffer family problems.
