Saint Rose of Lima is known for her vow of virginity at an early age, her constant devotion to Christ and the Virgin Mary, as well as her severe practices of mortification, penance, and fasting in order to unite herself to her Beloved.
Living the Catholic life, always and everywhere for God
Jesus Christ meets the man of every age, including our own, with the same words: “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” These words contain both a fundamental requirement and a warning: the requirement of an honest relationship with regard to truth as a condition for authentic freedom, and the warning to avoid every kind of illusory freedom, every superficial unilateral freedom, every freedom that fails to enter into the whole truth about man and the world. (Redemptor Hominis No. 12)
