    Saint Rita please ask God to heal my son's overwhelming medical problems. The prayers on his behalf are unbelievable in number and his healing would truly be a miracle for the world to see. Please ask God to consider the suffering he has already endured and make his earthly body whole again.

    Dear St Rita,
    I just recently read about your life story, am planning to visit you next week at the PhilAmHomes chapel. I really believed in Saints, and this is my first time to ask for your intercession,St Rita that you increase my faith and help me to find what I really want to do. I want to work abroad at the same time I want to stay in my country but I am jobless and want to help my children and brothers and sisters in my own way. I want to sell my house. Thank you for your intercession.
