Saint Rose of Lima, T.O.S.D. (April 20, 1586 - August 24, 1617), was a Spanish colonist in Lima, Peru, who became known for both her life of severe asceticism and her care of the needy of the city through her own private efforts. A lay member of the Dominican Order, she was the first person born in the Americas to be canonized by the Catholic Church. (Summary from Wikipedia)
