St. Rosa of Viterbo, Virgin

FROM her childhood she addicted herself entirely to the practice of mortification and assiduous prayer; she was favoured with the gift of miracles, and an extraordinary talent of converting the most hardened sinners. She professed the third rule of St. Francis, living always in the house of her father in Viterbo, where she died in 1261. See Wadding’s Annals, and Barbaza, Vies des SS. du Tiers Ordre, t. 2. p. 77.  1
