St. Rose of Lima
The name of Rose was given to this saint because one day her face appeared marvelously transfigured and with all the beauty of a rose. Her penances and her prayers fill us with admiration.
With thy comeliness and thy beauty sent out, proceed prosperously and reign. — Gradual
The Imitation of Christ
For our merit and the advancement of our state, consists not in having many sweetnesses and consolations; but rather in bearing great afflictions and tribulations.
This South American saint was especially devout to our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, which seemed almost her only food. All her penances and sufferings were offered for the conversion of sinners.
The prayer you say for another may merit for him the necessary grace to save his soul. Prayer for others is the sweetest charity and is not dependent on either time or circumstance.
Remember the soul of thy brother in prayer.
