Saint of Impossible Causes

Saint of Impossible Causes



Saint Rita come to my aid!
Faithful, loving wife and mother,
Humble, prayerful widow and nun,
Because of my need, answer my call.


Saint Rita, come to my aid!
Beautiful rose born
from the Savior’s thorns,
Lead me far from anger and hate;
Guide my heart on peaceful paths with charity to all.


Saint Rita, come to my aid!
Helper, healer, holy friend
Hear my petition (make request).
To Christ take this prayer,
For He is my Lord, my God, my All,
My hope in despair,
My strength when afraid.
Saint Rita, come to my aid!
Saint Rita, answer my call.



Blessed feast day.

It’s never too late to pray a novena.

St Rita, I thank you in advance for the answered prayers you will obtain on our behalf.

    Caroline, beautiful picture of St. Rita. What a life she had! EWTN has been running a movie about her recently.

    I haven’t been able to access your blog all day. I thought I’d try one more time before going to midnight :) So glad I could connect.

    Love the prayer…will come back to copy it tomorrow! Love you xoxo

      Patricia..Ugh, blogging kerfuffles seem to be my lot in life. I am so sorry. But, here I am LOL
      Oh, I love St Rita. Each year I seem to grow closer to her and find another prayer that speaks even more to my need for her intercession.
      I watch the movie on EWTN every year. I think it’s so well done..even the Shrine of St Rita in PA sells it, so it must be good.

      Love and Blessings always +

      Victor, So sorry for the trouble in accessing the blog..
      St Rita is one of the saints I feel closest to. I think she is a saint for our times, for impossible cases seem to be the theme of the day for many of us.
      Blessings always +
