St. Rita Comments

St. Rita was born at Spoleto, Italy in 1381. At an early age, she begged her parents to allow her to enter a convent. Instead they arranged a marriage for her. Rita became a good wife and mother, but her husband was a man of violent temper. In anger he often mistreated his wife. He taught their children his own evil ways.

    we have been married nearly16 years and have beautiful children from 1 to 14yrs. we have had marriage problems for the last 3/4 yrs and now my husband says he wants us to live as 'friends' and like brother and sister. he no longer wants me as a wife and does not want to try any more. he works away and is home infrequently. he no longer prays with me and seems to have little regard for his faith (once very strong).I do not know how to cope with this and keep crying. please help me st rita. i never thought this wd happen to me. i so wanted a happy home and children. Can i hope in a restoration of our marriage or should i resign myself to this. i don't know how to behave towards my husband now as i am rejected. please pray for gods guidance for me

    Dear St Rita, please reconcile me with my husband. Please soften his heart and bring him back to me. I don't know what has gotten into him. He says he doesnt love me anymore and does not want to try and reconcile. Please intervene St Rita

You and I know it was an impossible situation but with your mighty intercession with God, everything became smooth and possible. I want to thank you from all my heart for making this possible and for the wonderful example of your life and all you went through and got through with God on your side.
    In thanksgiving.

    Dear St. Rita,

    Please guide me to the path that is best for me and my family. Please help me to find work in my children's school so that I might take away some of the burden from my husband since he is self employed. Please help me find work. Thank you.

    Santa Rita I want to THANK YOU for hearing my prayers and carrying me through this obstacle in life. For the time I started praying to you I felt at peace. From the bottom of my heart and with everything I am I THANK YOU! I know you have always interceded for me and I THANK YOU no words can express how grateful I am and the generosity I feel in my heart! The roses that you presented me with is such a great sign that your carrying me through and I am not alone! I am overwhelmed by your power! You are so very powerful and so is God our father. I will continue to pray to you Santa Rita and praise you for the miracles you perform. Please continue to pray for me and my family to stay out of harms way and keep all evil away from us. I promise to become a better person and try to follow in your ways. I forgive those who I have trespassed against me and pray that those I have trespassed against forgive me. Thank you again and thank you for your message "life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference." Thank you for sending me these words and your beautiful roses. Thank you!

    I learnt about St Rita from my twin brother who is a seminarian. I had a problem which seemed to suppress me. When i prayed to St Rita, I got an unexpected solution to my problem. May St Rita, the saint of impossible cases continue to intercede for us all the days of our lives. Amen.

    I've been praying to St. Rita for something small but significant to my family every day for a week, and almost immediately she answered and continues to answer my prayers. Thank you, St. Rita, for your intercession for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Please pray for my marriage. This man that our Heavenly Father has blessed me with I cannot imagine living without, he has left us today. I am torn and afraid. I believed in him, when he said he loved me. It has been so hard, every day has been difficult with outside obsticals to overcome. We are weak, and are succumbing to the darkness. I don't know how we can find our way back. I love this man with all that I am. Please God don't take him from me, please God give us strength.

    Dear St, Rita,
    Happy Feast Day! You are my inspiration, my namesake and my hope for happier days ahead. I always wondered why I was named Rita, but have come to realize that is it because of you... to watch over me, guide me and give me the strength to handle the impossible situations in my life. The father of my two sons passed away 8 years ago and my heart is still broken. I need your strength to move on and get past it. My life is in another turmoil and I need more strength to get through these difficult days. I an honored to have two sons just like you and I love them endlessly. Thank you for that gift. You gave me the gift of patience, endurance and fairness. I am a giver and help others whenever I can. I am a good person, like you St Rita, and thank you for your wonderful qualities. Please help me to get the monster out of my life soon.

    Dearest St. Rita, Happy Feast Day. Thank you for all that I have in my life. Thank you God for always watching over me. My dearest St. Rita, you are the Saint of the Impossible, ans the Advocate of the Hopeless. You answer prayers and guide those who are in need. My dearest St. Rita, I beg you to listen and guide me through my difficult times. The impossible in my life is this: My boyfriend keeps punishing me due to past trust issues in his past relationships. He does not listen, he does not understand yet he punishes me time and time again of what he thinks I'm doing wrong. St. Rita I tell you I am the utmost loving, respectful, faithful and kindhearted girlfriend and I know I don't do wrong. I love him so much St. Rita, I want him to be my Prince Charming as I have always begged God for one. Help him understand me, listen to me, trust me and cherish me. I beg you give him a sense of maturity so my punishment can stop. O St. Rita, you bend your ear to listen to our prayers and your graciousness can not be thanked enough. I pledge to spread your devotion and your wonderful glory. Please help me St. Rita, help the impossible in my life, because I really feel that it is impossible to try to get through to my man. I ask of you to let trust reside in my relationship with my boyfriend and to show unconditional love, because right now I don't feel any love from him. My dearest St. Rita I beg you please bring the trust in my relationship and help the love seep through.
    Thank you for your greatness O Holy Patroness, I beg you for your help. You are forever in my heart.

    Dear St. Rita,

    I was in my mediation training tonight at a local Catholic law school and one of the professors told us about you and offered rose petals that had been pressed and then blessed by the priest. He told us you are the patron saint of impossible things. Well, I am 33 and my relationship with the man I thought I was going to marry just ended. I am heartbroken, both because of the loss of that relationship, and because I have been waiting for so long for God to bless me with a husband and children. This desire seems impossible to me at the moment, so I am praying to you that God will bless me with the husband and children I have always wanted. Thank you, St. Rita.

    Dear Saint,

    I pray for my wife. Please lessen her burden and help us to be united and live together as family at the earliest. Help us to overcome all the difficulties with the faith and trust on our Lord Jesus Christ. Enable us to bear all the struggles patiently. Console her of all the problems she faces in bringing up our children. Enlighten her to the will of God and inspire her to be courageous and patient. Grant her peace of mind and joy. Fill her up with the Love of God that she is guided by the Holy Spirit in all her desires and dreams and makes wise and informed decision. Bless her with good health and happiness. Amen.

    Dearest St. Rita, happy feast day! Three years ago I became Catholic, and the devout, pious lady who mentored me gave me a saint card of you, St. Rita. This lady knew that my wife and children were not Catholic -- not even Christian.

    St. Rita, I saw that as a sign that you chose me to be my patron saint. You are also the patron saint of impossible cases. Please help me to overcome my mental illness, depression, and anxiety. St. Rita, I know that you interceded for me during the two times that I attempted suicide. Thank you for your prayers and for being my patron saint. I don't feel comfortable referring to you as a patroness saint; it sounds sexist to me.

    Thank you for everything, dearest St. Rita. I have two little boys just like you had. Please pray for them and for my wife, who is a non-believer. Amen.
