From the moment Rose was born in 1586, people admired her beauty. But she did not feel called to marriage. That angered her parents, but Rose eventually became a member of the Third Order of St. Dominic. Living at home, she sold embroidery and flowers to support her family. Rose lived a life of intense penance and sacrifice. Sometimes, she would sleep only two hours so she could spend more time in prayer.
