Saint-Rita-of-Cascia.jpgAlmighty Jesus, Saint Rita of Cascia had a special devotion to the Passion, because she felt unspeakable awe at what You did on the cross.  She shared in Your suffering beginning at age twelve when her parents married her to an abusive man, and so she has become the patron of impossible causes.  I ask her to pray for all my most difficult, least hopeful situations, and to hold dear in her heart, with continuous prayers, all the people I know who are in harmful, unhealthy or abusive lives. Free us all, dear Lord, from the strongholds of fear and denial that keep us from discovering Your healing love.  Saint Rita of Cascia, pray for us.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Rita of Cascia

Since we offend our sweet Jesus, every day, in thought, word, deed and the omission of good works, we should pray every day, and every hour of the day, and weep for our offenses against so kind and loving a Father, Master and Spouse. >>
