Les Femmes


St. Rose of Lima was a lay member of the Third Order of St. Dominic who led a humble life of prayer and penance at home. Listen to her wisdom: “Our Lord and Savior lifted up His voice and said with incomparable majesty: ‘Let all men know that grace comes after tribulation…Without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace… The gifts of grace increase as the struggles increase. Let men take care not to stray and be deceived…without the cross they can find no road to climb to heaven.’…No one would complain about his cross or about troubles that may happen to him, if he would come to know the scales on which they are weighed when distributed to men.”
