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

    My confirmation is in one week from today, I'm excited 'bout it. My teacher is making us do a confirmation journal, its fun, and we have to do a project on our saint, I chose St Rosa de Lima because she is from my country, and her story inspires me, it helps through hard things in life.

    St. Rose of Lima is my patron saint i was named after my grandmother. When i read the wonderful deeds that she had done it inspired me a lot. I'am doing my confirmation and she is the one about whom i'm going to write my assignment . I thank the heavenly Father and my parents for naming me after such a wonderful saint.

    Wow.Incredible! I have yet to complete my confirmation(I am Catholic). It is optional for us to choose a saint we would like to be named after. Saint Rose de Lima is very inspirational and I can definetly relate to her in every aspect.I have decided to choose her as my saint of choice.This article is very helpful,Thank you! :D

    My name is Rose. Many years ago I chose a confirmation name after my grandmother, Isabelle. Most of my prayers are to be closer to God, to live for his glory and in his grace. When I have put distance between us, I feel terribly alone and hurt. While looking up the patron saints for my children, I discovered St. Rose of Lima. All I can say is thank you.
