Intercessory Prayer to Saint Rose of Lima
God our Father, for love of Thee St. Rose gave up everything to devote herself to a life of penance. By the help of her prayers may we imitate her selfless way of life on earth and enjoy the fullness of Thy blessings in Heaven. Grant this through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
The above prayer can be found on Catholic websites.
