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.

    Thank You St. Rita for answering a past prayer! I desperately need your help again. Please intercede on behalf of my Grandson. You are also the patron saint of lonliness. My Grandson is having difficulty fitting in at our Parochial school. Other children avoid him because he can't seem to keep his hands to himself. I fear he has an issue with self control that he can't help to grow out of. He is a loving, honest child at home but issues at school are tearing his family apart. I pray that he be healed of anything that may be causing these behaviors. Please help us help him. He is learning so much about Jesus and Mary and that God Created everything. Religion is not part of his home life but my daughter let him go our Catholic school. My Grandson has come to love Jesus and likes to pray. I pray that you intercede on his behalf so that he become a normal average boy with friends. I pray that he is able to bond with his classmates and not over react to stares and comments. I only want his first year of school to be filled with some joy instead of daily despair. Dear Saint Rita, I pray to you daily and spread your beautiful story to everyone. Please help me.

    As I search for a Saint for Confirmation that I feel, feel spiritualy, I wonder, "How long will this take? How much work will I have to do?" I have read a brief description of Saint Rita of Cascia before. I did like it very much but it didn't speak to me. I searched and searched for the right Saint, one that I have a connection with. My mind always wandered and told me, "Saint Rita..." Of course there is nothing wrong with studying a wide variety of Saints, but I felt, somehow, that Saint Rita of Cascia was whispering to me. Finaly, I read this article, and it did widen my knowledge of Saint Rita. But that wasn't what persuaded me to post this message. It was all the other messages. All the events in others lives made me quite emotional. No other Saint made me feel that way as I did then and as I do now. I realized that the time and effort did not matter, it was the content of what I was studying. And thanks to all the other people who have posted, thanks to Saint Rita of Cascia, I now realize what Confirmation means to me. How it will change me... I pray to dear Saint Rita that others may find realization within others, within writing, even with other Saints. Also, so that everyone may get through their troubles even if it seems impossible. (I stress the word "impossible" in that sentence) Thank you everyone, thank you Saint Rita of Cascia, and thank you God.

    Dear Saint Rita,

    My husband and I humble pray to you for a baby. We have been trying for 4 years. We have gone to the doctor, and found nothing wrong. Through my tears, I finally told the doctor one day, "it was a God thing" and stopped all treatments. We got pregnant and only to have our hearts broken, miscarrying at 8 weeks. It has been such a traumatic, sad experience. Please dear St. Rita, please ask our Lord to bless us with a baby. We know that the Lord has entrusted you to intercede when people need help. We need help St. Rita. Nothing is impossible without the Lord in our life. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

    St. Rita: you truly are such a role model for me. That is why I chose you to be my confirmation saint, because I believe with all of my heart that you were such an awe inspiring woman. You are what I try to aspire to be. Your love for the Lord was and still is so immense. I only wish I could be so devoted as you!
    so I ask you, my dear St. Rita, my confirmation saint, the woman I aspire to be, to pray for me at this time. Your speciality is hopeless causes, and well, you have already helped me so much with Nick. But Rita, I ask for another favor. I ask you to pray for me. Pray that the Lord gives Nick some free time so that he can e-mail me back. I don't want to lose Nick after the Lord brought us together. Please St Rita, pray so that the good Lord will give Nick just the right amount of time for him to send me an e-mail...I know he wants to, but he's so busy!
    Please St. Rita, pray for this e-mail. It would mean the world to me.
    God bless you<3 and thank you.

    St. Rita it has only been recent that your existance was known to me. I already feel a connection with you. This is the first time that i ask you for your intercession. Please St. Rita intercede for me and my husband. We have lost everything we had financially. Through your mercy allow us to get back on our feet. I promise you that if any of our two investments the dinar and the off shore bank come through i will use a large part of that money to help the less priviledged. I promise to honor you my saint.

Again please pray for my sister to have a safe delivery, my father's pension money to start passing, my mum to win the election as a Mayor my sisters and brother and their friends to pass the GCE and my family be a united and happy family
