Glorious Saint Rose of Lima,
you who knew what it was to love Jesus
with such a fine and generous heart.
You, whom since infancy,
despised the world’s vanities in order to embrace His Cross.
You who loved, with unfailing devotion, our Heavenly Mother
and professed a great tender dedication to the destitute,
serving them the same way Jesus did.
Teach us to imitate your greatest virtues,
so that we, following your example,
can enjoy your glorious protection in Heaven.
For Our Lord, Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns forever.
