Saints Alive! | St. Rose of Lima

Born one of ten children to a wealthy family in Lima, Peru, against her parent's wishes she left the wealth behind in favor of an austere life in the service of Jesus in the sick and the poor. Among her writings she once said, "Know that the greatest service that man can offer to God is to help convert souls."
