Jesusa's mother won this statue of Santa Rosa de Lima in a raffle at the Agat Fiesta sometime before World War II.  It survived the war and Jesusa inherited it.

Jesusa takes good care of it and keeps her yearly promesa to continue her mother's devotion to Santa Rosa.

I will be posting more on the custom of the promesa.
