St. Rita of Cascia Comments

Augustiniannun, also called Margarita. She was born in Roccaporena, near Spoleto, Italy, in 1381, and expressed from an early age the desire to become a nun. Her elderly parents insisted that she be married at the age of twelve to a man described in accounts of her life as cruel and harsh.

    Though late I want to say happy feast day to Saint Rita. I had been asking for her intercession since December 2012 when my husband and his younger brother got into a legal case due to a small brothers fight over their aging parents. I felt sad for them because somehow I got involved with their fights. At that time I had read a book about short story of saints and I got interested to Saint Rita being the patron saint of the impossible. Since then I prayed to her and asking to have the brothers a soften heart for them to forgive, to love each other as brothers and to have a humble heart to know and love God above all. I know Saint Rita answers my prayer be it big or small and I know this my earnest prayers be granted. Also I ask for my husband application be approved since we need to finance our children's education. All these I am asking through the intercession of Saint Rita to Jesus Christ, our Lord God Almighty. Amen

    Dear St. Rita, Patroness of the Impossible,

    I need you help in bringing the sale of my mother's house to a peaceful conclusion. My siblings are being unreasonable. Please give me the strength to pursue my dream of buying the house. I need a large sum of money to close the sale. I will be forever in your debt if my prayers are answered.
    Thank you for your life and for all those you have helped.

    Dearest St. Rita,
    O Holy Patroness of those in need, I have been praying to your for weeks and have stayed with it as today is your feast day. Please help me. I feel such sadness, heart break and grief. Please heal my broken heart. Please heal my hand. My partner of over 4 years has left and is doing drugs again. I searched the lives of Saints and came to you as the Patron Saint of the Impossible. Please help him find recovery. Please reunite us or help me let go with compassion as you have done. Help me be an example of compassion and a servant of God. Pray for me. I cry every day and sometimes feel I am going mad with grief. Please pray for all who feel like I do. Pray for those who are too overwhelmed to pray themselves. Pray especially for those who have no one to pray for them. I will sing your praises and let everyone know how much you have helped me. Pray to the Holy Spirit to heal my mind and heart.

    St Rita, I prayed for your help a year ago for my daughter and her husband. She is now pregnant, despite being told she might never have a child. The pregnancy is at an early stage but is not going well and might end in miscarriag, she is heartbroken after so many past losses. St Rita, please pray for them, Lord Jesus, have mercy.

    Dear St. Rita, I beg you to pray for me that Emmanuel, the father of my son, so that he is touched by you and our Lord God so as he knows that he is a father of Luoise and that he has a full responsibility of looking after him unlike what he is currently doing after meeting another woman. St. Rita please help and I thank you in advance for your help and I will keep on praising your name as always.

    St Rita please intercede and pray for and with me. I am in my fifties and have never been married. No man has ever asked my hand in marriage. I am so alone and lonely. I am getting old now though I have a child but I have never known the love other women experience. I hope and wish for the christian life where I will live with a christian man in a holy matrimony. I thank you in advance.

    St. Rita, I come to you for guidance on my marriage. My husband is a verbal abuser when he drinks and my heart is so sad. His prioity is not with his family but his drinking. Our marriage is falling apart and I have prayed and prayed and will continue to pray to our Lord for strength. I am seeking for some of this sadness and anger I feel towards him. My children who see this and are sad as well. I also have an exam coming up and having health issues that all this stress seems too much but I know God only gives us what we can handle but I feel so alone. Help me relieve this tension I have in my heart. I will still pray to you and our Lord. Thank you, Amen!
