Prayers to Saint Rita

Saint Rita wanted to become a nun, but was instead forced into marriage. She gave birth to two sons. After the death of her sons, and the murder of her husband, she was finally to able join the Augustinian nuns in Cascia where she spent the rest of her life doing God's work.

Prayer to Saint Rita 

O God, who did vouchsafe
to communicate so great
grace to Saint Rita that she
imitated Thine example in the
love of enemies and bore in
her heart and on her
countenance the sacred marks
of Thy love and passion: 
grant, we ask You, by
her merits and intercession,
that we may love our enemies
and ever contemplate with
deep contrition the sorrows of
Your Passion: Who lives and
reigns world without end.
Amen.

Prayer to Saint Rita
Saint of Loneliness and Impossible Dreams

O Holy Patroness of those in need, St. Rita, whose pleadings before thy Divine Lord are almost irresistible, who for thy lavishness in granting favors hast been called the Advocate of the Hopeless and even of the Impossible; St. Rita, so humble, so pure, so mortified, so patient and of such compassionate love for thy Crucified Jesus that thou couldst obtain from Him whatsoever thou askest, on account of which all confidently have recourse to thee expecting, if not always relief, at least comfort; be propitious to our petition, showing thy power with God on behalf of thy suppliant; be lavish to us, as thou hast been in so many wonderful cases, for the greater glory of God, for the spreading of thine own devotion, and for the consolation of those who trust in thee.

We promise, if our petition is granted, to glorify thee by making know thy favor, to bless and sing thy praises forever. Relying then upon thy merits and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we pray thee grant that
[here mention your request].

Ask for Saint Rita's intercession with the beautiful prayer on the back of this prayer card.
