Margaret of Cortona, penitent, was born in Loviana in Tuscany in 1247. Her father was a small farmer. Margaret's mother died when she was seven years old.

    St. Margaret of Cortona, please intercede on behalf of my daughter. A number of the unfortunate situations from your life's story are unfolding in hers, and I am asking for you to help her to be safe, to stop cutting, to stop allowing herself to be used by men and being tempted to turn in the direction of promiscuity because that's what she thinks she's supposed to do. She is 17 and wants to leave home to be with a boyfriend who doesn't display forthright character and doesn't care about her well-being. Please...intercede with what's best and right and good, so that she will not get hurt, so that she will overcome all of her mental and emotional struggles, so that she will find peace, joy, comfort, and God. PLEASE act as QUICKLY as possible, her situation is becoming precarious. Thankyou.

    Dear Saint Margherita please intercede for myself, and my alcoholic relative. We are all about to be thrown out of our house through foreclosure. I have aspergers and cannot afford to pay for decent housing on my own.

    Please help us to keep this shelter or provide shelter and allow me to keep my job and keep my reliable transportation. Please pray to the Lord that we might receive this help. I just don't know what we will do if they throw all of us out on the street with our belongings, which if they are still in my house at the time of the eviction, they can keep and sell according to the laws of my state.
    Thank you.

    It is amazing how a sinner can suddenly change and become a saint. Dear St Margaret, help us to see the events in our lives as means of answering God's call. Please assist us to discover God's purpose for our lives and be able to accomplish it through Christ our Lord. Amen!
