Quote/s of the Day – 22 May – 2 Prayers to St Rita of Cascia

Quote/s of the Day – 22 May – St Rita of Cascia (1386-1457) Mother, Widow, Stigmatist, Consecrated Religious, Mystic

Saint Rita (1381-1457) was born at Cascia in Umbria, Italy.
At the age of twelve she was forced to marry an ill-tempered nobleman, who was a heavy cross to her for many years.
After his death she joined the Augustinian nuns.
Our Lord sealed His love for her by piercing her brow with a thorn from His sacred Crown.
Saint Rita is almost without equal as the shining model of the unmarried, of wives and mothers and of religious.
Her Patronage extends to Impossible Causes and Wives in Abusive Marriages.

Indulgenced Prayer to St Rita

O God, who didst deign 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 beseech Thee,
by her merits and intercession,
that we may love our enemies
and ever contemplate,
with deep contrition,
the sorrows of Thy Passion,
Who livest and reignest world without end.

Indulgence of 300 days, once a day.
Plenary Indulgence on the usual conditions,
if the daily recitation of this prayer is continued for a month.

A Prayer to St Rita
When in Special Need

O powerful St Rita,
rightly called Saint of the Impossible,
I come to you with confidence in my great need.
You know well my trials,
for you yourself were many times burdened in this life.
Come to my aid, speak for me,
pray with me, intercede on my behalf
before the Father.
I know that God has a most generous heart
and that He is a most loving Father.
Join your prayers to mine
and obtain for me the grace I desire
……………… (here mention your request).
You who were so very pleasing to God on earth
and are so much now in Heaven,
I promise to use this favour, when granted,
to better my life, to proclaim God’s Mercy
and to make you more widely known and loved.



Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
