Born in Palermo, little is known of St. Rosalia. To be closer to God she lived her life in the seclusion of a cave and practiced many penitential acts. In 1624, many years after her death she appeared to a hunter and led him to her remains. Inscribed in the walls of the cave were the words, “I, Rosalia, daughter of Sinibald, Lord of Roses, and Quisquina, have taken the resolution to live in this cave for the love of my Lord, Jesus Christ.” At this time the island of Sicily was experiencing a terrible plague, and after parading her relics through the city, the plague miraculously ended.
