St. Rose of Lima



Story of First Canonized Saint of Americas

By Mary Fabyan Windeatt

The story for children 10 and up of St. Rose of Lima, who became a hermit in her own home–rather than go to a convent–and how she became a great Saint. At her confirmation in 1597, she took the name of Rose, because, when an infant, her face had been seen transformed by a mystical rose. As a child she was remarkable for a great reverence, and pronounced love, for all things relating to God. 132 pages. Paperback.
