St. Rita Comments

St. Rita was born at Spoleto, Italy in 1381. At an early age, she begged her parents to allow her to enter a convent. Instead they arranged a marriage for her. Rita became a good wife and mother, but her husband was a man of violent temper. In anger he often mistreated his wife. He taught their children his own evil ways.

    I am a living testimony, when I got laid off from my former place of work, one Thursday, I was devastated. I finally decided to embark on 9 days Novena in the honor of Saint Rita of Cascia, the following Tuesday I got another well paying job, that is far greater than what I used to earn in my former place of work. It was very amazing to me. I am a strong fan of Saint Rita of Cascia. May everyone who is burdened with one problem or the other who put all his/her trust on God through the intercessions of Saint Rita of Cascia be rest assured of God's Blessings!!!

    Oh glorious St. Rita,

    I ask you to please pray for me in regards to my financial situation. My truck is on the verge of getting repossed and I'm 3 months late on my payment. I've was out of work for a few months, but I just completed my first week of work at my new job, but it's not enough to catch up on payments. Oh St Rita please thru prayer intercession pray that I find a way to pay off my bills before I lose my truck. If I lose my truck, it would be such a set back to my new job plus so much more money to get it back... I offer my suffering with this trial that I am going thru to you St. Rita and to our Lord Jesus Christ to do what you please and grant me this blessing which would greatly help out my family. Please hear my prayer and if it is not in Gods will for me to obtain what I ask, please provide something that is within the will of God which would benefit me in my financial trial... Amen

    St. Rita pray for me...

    I come to you again my dear Saint. You have answered my prayers before and I know that you will help me out again. Please intercede on behalf of my amazing mother that she will be healthy and happy for many years to come. I haven't asked much from you or God in my lifetime. The only thing I want is for my mom to be happy and healthy. Please pray for her!!!!

    St. Rita is indeed the Patron Saint of the Impossible cases.

    We are waiting for a miracle as my fiancee and I knew that he has some medication condition that wil not allow him to work abroad (Middle East) plus the fact that he is applying for a government company I am also working in middle east. He had his medical back home and to our surprise the result was fit to work.

    The medical will be again tested here but I know with the help of St. Rita it will be okay.

    St. Rita I am again seeking for help to pray for me.

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    Dear St. Rita pray for me and for my husband. He is having an affair and is sneaking around and taking time out of the office to meet her and spend time with her. Now he is trying to start something with a woman he has just been friends with, except that now he wants to be "friends with benefits" and she is interested. Dear St. Rita, I am so confused and lost. I know you prayed and prayed for your husband and God granted your prayers. Please St. Rita pray for me in this situation. Pray that my husband will cease his infidelity and cease his attempts at starting new adulterous relationships. Please St. Rita pray for us, that our marriage will grow stronger and that we will grow in love and in faith . . .that we will be truly united as husband and wife in the eyes of God and that this will help M. to stop his infidelity and to be faithful to me and to our marriage. Dear St. Rita, pray for me . . .

    St. Rita thank you for listening to my prayers in my time of need. I thank you for your guidance and love.

    Novena to St. Rita

    O holy protectree of those who art in greatest need, thou who shineth as a star of hope in the midst of darkness, blessed St. Rita, bright mirror of God's grace, in patience and fortitude thou art a model of all the states in life. I unite my will with the will of God through the merits of my Savior Jesus Christ, and in particular through his patient wearing of the crown of rthorns, which with tender devotion thou didst daily contemplate. Through the merits of the holy Virgin Mary and thine own graces and virtues, I ask thee to obtain my earnest petition, provided it be for the greater glory of God and my own sanctification. Guide and purify my intention, O holy protectress and advocate, so that I may obtain the pardon of all my sins and the grace to persevere daily, as thou didst in walking with courage, generosity, fidelity down the path of life. [Mention your request.]

    Saint Rita, advocate of the impossible, pray for us.
    Saint Rita, advocate of the helpless, pray for us.

    Pray: 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Mary's, and 3 Glory Be's
