Saint Rose of Lima

August 23

Saint Rose of LimaLoving God, Saint Rose of Lima was a mystic and visionary who received invisible stigmata, and yet she often suffered from the feeling that You were distant.  Despite how lonely this felt, she persisted in believing that You were indeed with her all the time, and she continually prayed to grow stronger in her ability to trust You.  I ask her to intercede for me when my feelings tell me You are not near, and to pray most powerfully for all those I know who are right now experiencing loneliness because they are unaware of how close You are to them.  Open our hearts to the reality of Your intimacy.  Saint Rose, pray for us.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Rose of Lima

Apart from the cross, there is no other ladder by which we may get to heaven. >>

No one would complain about the cross or about hardships coming seemingly by chance upon him, if he realized in what balance they are weighed before being distributed to men. >>

Let all know that grace comes after tribulation. Let them know that without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. Let them know that the gifts of grace increase as the struggles increase. Let men take care not to stray and be deceived. This is the only true stairway to paradise, and without the cross they can find no road to climb to heaven. >>
