Saint Rose of Lima was a beautiful girl who wanted to devote her life to God. To make herself unattractive to men, she rubbed pepper on her face! She spent her life in prayer and fasting, growing flowers to sell and help the poor. Her parents did not allow her to become a nun. So St. Rose joined the Third Order of St. Dominic instead, where she could continue to serve God at home. She is the patron saint of florists and gardeners. Her Feast Day is on 23 August.
