Rose was born in Lima, Cordal, the capital of the Viceroyalty of Peru. She received the baptismal name Isabel Flores de Oliva. She was from a large family. Her father, Gaspar Flores, was a Spanish harquebusier (soldier armed with a small-caliber long gun), and her mother, Maria de Oliva, was born in Lima. She was personally confirmed by the Archbishop of Lima, Turibius de Mongrovejo. Her nickname "Rosa" was a testament to her holy ties. When she was a baby, a servant claimed to have seen her face transform into a rose, hence her name, "Rosa". In emulation of Saint Catherine of Siena, she fasted three times a week with secret severe penances. When she was admired, Rose cut off her hair against the objections of her friends and her family. Upon the censure of her parents, Rose disfigured her face with pepper and lye. She was very upset that she was so beautiful, and hurt herself to help others. Rose began to tell of visions, revelations, visitations and voices as her parents deplored her penitential practices more than ever. She spent many hours contemplating the Blessed Sacrament, which she received daily. She determined to take a vow of virginity in opposition to her parents, who wished her to marry. Daily fasting turned to perpetual abstinence from meat. Her days were filled with acts of charity and industry. Rose helped the sick and hungry around her community. She would bring them to her home and take care of them. Rose sold her fine needlework, grew beautiful flowers, and would take them to market to help her family. Her exquisite lace and embroidery helped to support her home, while her nights were devoted to prayer and penance in a little grotto which she had built. She became a recluse leaving the grotto only for her visits to the Blessed Sacrament. She took the name of Rose at her confirmation in 1597. In her twentieth year she had so attracted the attention of the Dominican Order that she was permitted to enter a Dominican convent in 1602 without payment of the usual dowry. She donned the habit and took a vow of perpetual virginity. For eleven years this self-martyrdom continued without relaxation, with intervals of ecstasy, until she died on August 30, 1617, at the age of 31. Her funeral was attended by all the public authorities of Lima, and the archbishop pronounced her eulogy in the cathedral.

Customers Reviews
"Ordered a St. Michael's medal for my grandson for his graduation from the New York City Police. Upon arrival I was extremely pleased with the workmanship and quality of the medal. Customer Service was extremely helpful when I called for a small error and worked with me for my complete satisfaction. Would highly recommend this company and will shop with them again."

"One of the best websites I have been on shopping for religious medals. Great variety."
-- Patty

"I bought a medal for my husband for Christmas. I know that he will love it. There is no saint for his name so I got the one that is nearest to his name. He won't have to use his middle name like he always does. I like dealing with Pictures On Gold. This was my second time."
-- Joan Cestra

"I've purchased two Miraculous Medals from you at different times. Both times I've been highly satisfied. They came when expected and there were no hidden costs. Actually look so much better than pictures on site. No photo does jewelry any justice. The recent one I got was in sterling silver. I bought it for a friend for Mothers Day as she keeps admiring the one I always wear. Won't she be surprised. Thank you for your meticulous work in creating this fine jewelry."
-- Virginia

"I received my St. Raphael dog tags today and I could not be happier. The dog tags themselves were stunningly beautiful and exceeded my highest expectation. My special instructions concerning the engraving, though a little complicated, were followed to a "t". Your website was easy to navigate, and very helpful in giving me a good image of what the dog tags and engraving would look like. The shipping was lightning fast -- the dog tags were shipped the same day I ordered them and I received them a mere two days later. Everything about my experience with PICTURES ON GOLD was top notch and I can't thank you enough for your outstanding customer service, and a medal that quite simply took my breath away. Linda"

"I ordered the medal yesterday, and received it today. I'm utterly astonished It is beautifully engraved and just the right size. You people rock I will be a repeat customer, you can bet on it. Gift box is also very pretty. My daughter will love wearing her patron saint as she starts her career. Thank you so much."
-- Theresa

""I searched the internet for just the right pendant. I found one exactly like I wanted at PicturesOnGold. I recently purchased a St. Francis gold plated pendant, inscribed with Protect My Dogs. Service was excellent, and have gotten lots of compliments on my pendant. I'll definitely order from Pictures on Gold again. Daniel was especially helpful. Thanks for a great product." Judy"
-- Judy Rice

"The Items I bought are flawless. I bought the religious medals St. Jude and St.Anthony COLOR EXCLUSIVE. There was a mistake in this order. One chain was the wrong size. When I called the Gentleman on the phone was very pleasant and professional and corrected the problem. I "Would" order from Pictures on Gold again. I would encourage Catholic Churches to look into ordering their patron Saint Name sake. I am trying to get my Church to do this. If you do order anything from this site you wilo not be sorry. Thanks Bill B"
