St. Rose of Lima Comments

Virgin, born at Lima, Peru 20 April, 1586; died there the 24 of August, 1617. St. Rose of Lima is the patroness of Latin America and the Philippines. This South American Saint's real name was Isabel, but she was such a beautiful baby that she was called Rose, and that name remained. As she grew older, she became more and more beautiful, and one day, her mother put a wreath of flowers on her head to show off her loveliness to friends. But Rose ... Continue Reading

    St. Rose of Lime feast day is listed on our Liturgical Calenday for August 23rd, 2010 not on this day. Our parish is St. Rose of Lima and we celebrated her day Monday, August 23rd. There seems to be a mistake.

    Rubbing lye and pepper into her face! Obviously she was mentally ill all her life. Why do you glorify this type of behaviour and encourage young people to emulate it?

    If Vatican II changed St. Rose's feast day from the 30th of August to the 23rd of Aug., then why doesn't Catholic Online comply with the Catholic Church and place St. Rose on Aug. 23rd? I believe St. Rose would feel better honored if you followed the magisterium of the Church; there are too many in leadership in our churches who failed to do just that and because of it the Catholic Church is in Crises today. St. Rose, please touch the heart of God's chosen people to respect and follow the Church's authority-we cannot play pick and chose when it comes to Church Teaching- our soul depends on it! God, Save Our Church.
