Rosa of Viterbo

Rosa Of Viterbo, a hermit attached to the order of Fanciscans, though without having been formally received. She occupied a cell in the house of her parents, and was accustomed to preach repentance, standing with crucifix in hand in the public streets. She was temporarily banished from Viterbo, but eventually recalled and received with enthusiasm. She died in A.D. 1252, aged about eighteen. See Acta SS. for Sept. 4.
