    Dear St Rita as I ponder a confirmation name I have come across you. My husband and I have been trying to have a family for the last eleven years. This has filled us with much sadness and in myself much anger and depression. I am currently taking RCIA classes in hopes of strengthening my faith. Please give me the power to continue in my journey and to not feel so hopeless and alone. Amen.

    Dear St. Rita. Please help me pray for my husband, Wenefredo, to come home to us his family very soon. Help him get his 6 years salary benefit from his previous company, Thinet Abudhabi, as this is what he is waiting for, since 6 months now He is still there in Abudhabi with no job and doesn't want to come home to us penniless. Let him come home to us, as soon as he get his money from Thinet Abudhabi, and be united again as 1 family of GOD. I ask you this with Mary, the Virgin Mother of God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

    Dear St Rita, I spent 2 years wanting children & after losing twin girls,
    a tumor was found in my womb I asked you to intercede to God that I be blessed with the joy of children. Oh sweet Rita, 'Saint of the Impossible', the Lord heard my prayers.
    We have 3 healthy children! I ask you pray for my husband & I to nurture them with the faith of God, give us patients in everyday life. I especially ask you intercede & help my middle child as he struggles with his reading. Thank you.
    I pray for all who wait to be blessed with children may the good Lord hear your prayer.
