    St. Rita, please help me pray to God for our family to be whole again. I hope God grants me another chance at family and love with my husband. Please pray for his continued healing and enlightenment, he seems so far away from us. He’s always had a very good moral compass, but he seems at a loss nowadays because of his pressing problems. I hope God holds him in the palm of his hand through his struggles and trials. Please re-ignite his moral compass, and may it help him find his way back home to family, to me and our daughter. I ask you this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Mama Mary, Amen. Thank you St. Rita!

    St. Rita. Please intercede for me with God and pray for me and perform the impossible miracle, reconcile me with my husband. Our marriage is in crisis. Through the love of God, please bring my husband back to me. We do love each other. Please give us the opportunity to develop that love, forgive and move forward to a better more beautiful love and life. I will honor God and praise him and do my best to love and only act with kindness every day for the rest of my life. Amen

    Dear St. Rita of Cascia, Patron Saint of Hopeless Situations, I ask that you continue to intercede and pray for all who request your intercession and help them with their problems. I would also like to request Dear St. Rita that you pray for me also and intercede on my behalf that may I live the life that God wants me to and to honor His will and not mine but to make the right choices in love, finances, and family relationships. I truly believe and love Jesus, Mary, God and all the Saints. Amen.

    Please Saint Rita I left you message the other day. I am asking again. Please Help my daughter find a good husband. She has not had good luck in finding a spouse. The man she was interested in is ignoring her. That he call her. Of it is not God's will for my daughter to marry this man then please help her find a very good man. A man she can respect and he respect her. If there is something in her character that pushs men away I ask that she is able to see herself. I ask for the Grace of God that she be able to change to the better. Time is passing by. She is 39 and very soon will be 40. Please help with my other children whom they too need a lot of prayers. Pleae pray for me and my children and my ex.
    Thank you Saint Rita. Please tell my Jesus I love Him. Give Him and His Holy Mother hugs and kisses for me; since I can not do it.

    St. Rita, I am in desperate need of your intercession, I am truly in need of a miracle. Please pray for the conversion of my boyfriend. He is suffering much and I believe that conversion into the Catholic faith will help him and will help us as a couple. We want to be married but until we are on the same page in our faith, we will not. I understand that conversion is not an easy road, but I know in my heart that he will find so much strength and peace from it. St. Rita I come to you in great confidence asking for your help. Please pray for me to be strong and for my boyfriend to open his heart to conversion. He is a wonderful man and is very much in love with our Lord, but he struggles to understand and accept the Catholic faith. Please St. Rita, pray for us, intercede for us. Intercede for all of those who come to you in great need. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    Saint Rita,you were introduced to me by my sister just this morning....I truly thought all hope was lost was for me......Im a widow of 10 years. After my husband passed I cared for my father in our home for another 5 years,then he passed......Im currently living in our home with my daughter who is 40 and never been married although she has had the chance. My problem is she is unable to help with the finances because of college loans for her daughter,her car payments and many more expences she has.........Ive lost my job and living on savings at the moment....not to sure how much longer it will last.......I do odd jobs for people and receive some assistance from my state government.......Im praying everyday for financial freedom so I may live my "'golden years''in peace. Im asking for your prayers in helping with this matter. do I sound selfish? Lord knows Im not.........Im just tired.
