Celebrating the life of St Rita of Cascia on 22 May
St Rita of Cascia
St Rita of Cascia’s life was a tapestry of faith and fear, joy and sadness, acceptance and denial woven together through her love of Christ. St Rita is known as the Saint of Impossible Cases. She is a great role model for everyone as she lived a single life, a married life, life as a parent and as a religious.
May the example of St Rita
inspire us to be examples of holiness and courage
foster in us a great love for God
fill us with compassion for those who suffer
encourage in us generosity and forgiveness
St Rita, you are a shining example of what a follower of Christ should be;
generous to all both spiritually and materially.
St Rita, pray for us.
