Saint Rose of Lima was born Isabel de Santa Maria de Flores y del Oliva, but her confirmation name was Rose and that’s the name she liked best. She was the first person born in the “New World” to be declared a Catholic Saint. Saint Catherine of Siena was Rose’s role model, and Rose copied Saint Catherine. Known for wearing a crown of roses, Rose is recognized as the patroness of gardeners, botanists, and all flower lovers.
