Life of saint Rose of Vitervo

  1. 1. St. Rose of Vitervo<br />Gladys Garcia <br />5B<br />
  2. 2. 1235-1252<br />While still very young, she began a life of penance in her parents’ house. She was as generous to the poor as she was strict with herself.<br />Even as a child Rose had a great desire to pray and to aid the poor.<br />Her mortifications there seem incredible to our time of laxity; she gave herself the discipline three times a day until she fainted from fatigue and loss of blood, and she scarcely ate at all. <br />
  3. 3. Nonetheless she fell ill and nearly died of consumption. She was close to the final agony when suddenly she beheld the Mother of God,<br />When but three years old, she raised to life her maternal aunt. <br />To defend the Church’s rights was already Rose’s burning wish. When hardly ten years old, she arose after her reception into the Franciscan habit, went down to the public square at Viterbo, called upon the inhabitants to be faithful to the Sovereign Pontiff, and vehemently denounced all his opponents.<br />
  4. 4. The remainder of her life was spent in the cell in her father&apos;s house, where she died.<br />Her attempt at age 15 to found a religious community failed, and she returned to a life of prayer and penance in her father’s home, where she died in 1251. Rose was canonized in 1457.<br />The Franciscan Sisters moved into the convent in 1871.[2] In 1906, the Maria Angelorum Chapel was consecrated at St. Rose Convent. <br />When Rose took the pope’s side against the emperor, she and her family were exiled from the city. <br />
