Peru (1967 SG938-940) Santa Rosa of Lima.
Santa Rosa was the first American born saint being canonized in 1671. She was brought up in a religious family 
and since a young age had devoted her life to Jesus Christ. She was prone to bouts of self-multilations whenever
she thought her look may be too seductive for  men and this led her to injure her eyes, scratching her hands and 
cutting her hair. There was no records if she had any psychiatric illnesses. She was regarded in South America as
the Saint of eye diseases.
