St. Rose of Lima Walking Home from Mass

St. Rose of Lima lived in Peru during the end of the 16th and beginning of the 17th century. It was often the case that, when walking to Mass, she would have to stop for rest because she was so weak. This weakness was caused by the severe fasts and penances to which she subjected herself. However, after having received Communion at Mass, she would walk so quickly that her mother had trouble trying to keep up with her.
