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. Rita tried to perform her duties faithfully and to pray and receive the sacraments frequently. After nearly twenty years of ... Continue Reading

    Dear St. Rita,

    I was in my mediation training tonight at a local Catholic law school and one of the professors told us about you and offered rose petals that had been pressed and then blessed by the priest. He told us you are the patron saint of impossible things. Well, I am 33 and my relationship with the man I thought I was going to marry just ended. I am heartbroken, both because of the loss of that relationship, and because I have been waiting for so long for God to bless me with a husband and children. This desire seems impossible to me at the moment, so I am praying to you that God will bless me with the husband and children I have always wanted. Thank you, St. Rita.

    Dear Saint,

    I pray for my wife. Please lessen her burden and help us to be united and live together as family at the earliest. Help us to overcome all the difficulties with the faith and trust on our Lord Jesus Christ. Enable us to bear all the struggles patiently. Console her of all the problems she faces in bringing up our children. Enlighten her to the will of God and inspire her to be courageous and patient. Grant her peace of mind and joy. Fill her up with the Love of God that she is guided by the Holy Spirit in all her desires and dreams and makes wise and informed decision. Bless her with good health and happiness. Amen.

    Dearest St. Rita, happy feast day! Three years ago I became Catholic, and the devout, pious lady who mentored me gave me a saint card of you, St. Rita. This lady knew that my wife and children were not Catholic -- not even Christian.

    St. Rita, I saw that as a sign that you chose me to be my patron saint. You are also the patron saint of impossible cases. Please help me to overcome my mental illness, depression, and anxiety. St. Rita, I know that you interceded for me during the two times that I attempted suicide. Thank you for your prayers and for being my patron saint. I don't feel comfortable referring to you as a patroness saint; it sounds sexist to me.

    Thank you for everything, dearest St. Rita. I have two little boys just like you had. Please pray for them and for my wife, who is a non-believer. Amen.

    Happy feast day, Saint Rita! Please intercede for me that I can be reunited with my husband and 2 kids. I pray that my husband's visa will be approved. I'm so desperate, St. Rita. There's so much pain in my heart because of my separation from my family.

    I prayed to St. Rita for something small but important to me. Together with St. Anthony, she answered immediately.
    I believe there is no prayer insignificant to her if it's from the heart. Thank you, St. Rita. Thank you, St. Anthony.

    Happy Feast Day my beloved patron St Rita may you remain forever in our hearts. We thank you for listening to our prayers and I ask that you interceed on behalf of everyone who asks for your help to our beloved Jesus. If it is God's will let all our prayers be answered. Amen.

    May you interceed on my behalf by granting our autistic son entry into the school of our request and may he gain entry to this school in the next few weeks. It seems impossible as they've told us there are no vacancies this year, please let a vacancy become available for him as he needs to be in a smaller class size to aid his learning.

    Happy Feast Day dearest Saint Rita! Thank you for letting me find you and find comfort in you.

    Please pray that F will respond and open up to me. After a couple of months of total silence, I managed to get him to reply the other day. He said he's constantly thinking of me and misses me, so I gently asked again for us to communicate more. I hoped he would respond but he's once again disappeared. Whenever I mention us talking and making one another laugh he distances himself. But if we are constantly on each other's minds, we need to reconnect, we need to talk... Please Saint Rita this constant up and down of emotions is so draining, it is stealing every ounce of energy and hope from me. Please make this seemingly impossible request become possible. Let us finally have a breakthrough and talk to one another again. And please grant me the beautiful miracle that we may have another chance and he can learn of my unconditional love. I miss him, I miss him... reading his words the other day meant so much, but it rips me apart that he's dismissing me again, when I know deep down he doesn't want this... Help him break through that depression, the wall of pain, please remove all obstacles that stand in our way. Thank you dearest Saint Rita.

    Thank you Saint Rita for your continued intercession.

    I nudged F a little and FINALLY got him to respond! He said he's always thinking of me and I'm constantly in his thoughts and he misses me... But if he thinks of me so much and kisses me why does he remain so silent and distant. I can sense he is still sad and holding up a wall of pain which I have tried so hard to break through. It meant so much to have him finally reply. I have asked him for us to communicate more again. Please let me hear back from this - it's always at this point that he disappears again. Hearing one another and making each other laugh would be the best thing! Please take my request to our Lord and plead that He make a clear path for F back to me, back to my heart and give us another chance and let me show him my unconditional love. Thank you for this tiny little glimmer of hope my dear Saint Rita! Please, please help my impossible miracle become possible.
