Saint Rose of Lima was born Isabel Flores y del Oliva in the city of Lima, then in the Viceroyalty of Peru, on April 20, 1586.  She wanted to become a nun, and was attracted to the Dominican Order, but her father was against this. So she entered the Third Order of St. Dominic instead and wore the habit of a tertiary.  Her father gave her a room in the family home where she could live in seclusion.  She died August 25, 1617.
