Rose, born in Lima, Peru, in 1586, bore many resemblances to Francis of Assisi, the most striking having to do with her relation to nature. Rose was a member of a religious order but lived most of her life at her parents' residence in Lima. There she had a garden from which she helped to feed the household and the poor of the city. People in Lima recorded that when Rose, who had a beautiful voice, worked in her garden, birds came and sang spontaneous duets with her. This harmonious relation with nature extended to other animals and the plants and trees she tended. Rose died in 1617, her funeral attended by thousands of people (and birds). She was the first person from the Americas to be proclaimed a saint.
