May 22: St Rita of Cascia

St. Rita is the Patroness of Impossible & Hopeless causes, Mothers and Abused Women. Many seek her intercession for marital problems, infertility and sickness.

O excellent St. Rita, worker of miracles, from thy sanctuary in Cascia, where in all thy beauty thou sleepest in peace, where thy relics exhale breaths of paradise, turn thy merciful eyes on me who suffer and weep!

Thou seest my poor bleeding heart surrounded by thorns Thou seest, O dear Saint, that my eyes have no more tears to shed, so much have I wept! Weary and discouraged as I am, I feel the very prayers dying on my lips.

Must I thus despair in this crisis of my life? O come, St. Rita, come to my aid and help me. Art thou not called the Saint of the Impossible, Advocate to those in despair?

Then honor thy name, procuring for me from God the favor that I ask. (Here ask the favor you wish to obtain.)

Everyone praises thy glories, everyone tells of the most amazing miracles performed through thee, must I alone be disappointed because thou hast not heard me?

Ah no! Pray then pray for me to thy sweet Lord Jesus that He be moved to pity by my troubles and that, through thee, O good St. Rita, I may obtain what my heart so fervently desires.

(Pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father, three times.)

  7. I hope St. Rita you can make, without [a] show, that I can have a relationship with a woman who effected me a lot, and I am not with her, and i have no job, house, future/security- have been treated illegally by Government/Department of Health; and A titled/But not/ Hospital…and i would like prompt compensation.
    But they seem to sneer and their mockery/studied indifference, seems to have a lot of life left in it.
    I would like to live in France or where the woman lives and to work in tobacco [or something that fills my day- and keeps me off cigarettes.
    Also I would like money for nicorette patches; and a airline flight, immediately; (2) to met the woman accidentally in the Place Bellecour (or in dublin).
    …Which i hope You’ll get me out of immediately as i don’t think i deserve it; and the malaise, i hope you’ll, return to their door
