St. Rose of Lima – Halo Girls Frameable
St Rose of Lima (1586 – 1617) was a little girl in Lima, Peru, who read stories of the great St. Catherine of Siena and desired to imitate a life of holiness. She began fasting, praying, and receiving communion daily. Her parents wished her to marry, but little Rose wanted to dedicate her life to God, instead, so she cut her hair short in an effort to discourage suitors. (Note: that is not how she is pictured, parents, YOU’RE WELCOME. I’m only an aunty, but I know a thing or two about kids and inspiration). St. Rose of Lima made and sold crafts and flowers to serve the poor, and constructed a small grotto so she could meditate on Jesus’ life from her home.
As an adult, she continued her growth in prayer and penance. St. Rose is the patron of Peru, Latin America, India, and the Philippines!
-The text reads: “St. Rose of Lima pray that I may be determined”
-The hefty coverstock paper is 5″x7″, artwork is a smaller piece
– Print comes with a description of her life history on the back
– The print is sold unframed, but, I made the paper a size that is super easy to find in most stores. I figured I’d save you the $ on shipping.
– Print will come in a plastic sleeve, with some protective cardboard, in a bubble mailer.
The “Halo Girls” set is my artistic celebration of the wonder and diversity of God’s call…to women! I wanted to give young women a relatable cast of inspirational models.
