    St. Rita,
    Please bring my husband back to me and help in breaking that spell she has on him. Their relationship was created sin. I miss him dearly, my heart aches for him daily and I pray for his return as I have forgiven him. St. Rita please watch over my dearest Peter and guide him a protect him. I will honor you always.

    St. Rita, Please intercede for me. I need a job that I can continue for a couple more years before I retire that will bring me peace and enjoyment. You are the saint of impossible cases and I trust that you, through our Son Jesus Christ, will help me. Thank you, as my Mother's namesake. I look forward to your help that I so desperately need.

    St. Rita, please pray for me that my daughter, who is now off to a university, and will have two more going off soon, will be able to financially afford it all the way through and through their profession. We are a strong Catholic-based family and will always continue to keep the faith. Please keep myself and my husband healthy for our daughters through these many years to come. Please pray for us. Thank you, St. Rita.

    Please Dear St. Rita, send my husband home today. I pray he will not want a divorce, for we are married through the church. Please help him be committed to our sacrament of marriage and our family. I cannot give up on my husband. Please St. Rita, graciously hear and answer my prayers, Amen.

    Saint Rita, Thank you so much for answering my prayers. Even though I am not officially catholic but I started to have faith in God and have been praying to you as I lost my hope in getting a job. After the entire year of being unemployed and living in despair, I thought of praying to you to help me get a job of my dream and get a visa to see my Catholic boyfriend in another country. Then you granted me a miracle. Shortly after praying to you for a week, I received a phone call with a job offer and a few days later I received my passport back with a visa on it. I believe that you have helped me to go through this tough time of my life and I would like to fulfill my promise to share my story to others and share the catholic faith. Thank you once again for answering my prayers when I feel so hopeless. I am so grateful by your miracle and will continue to believe in you. Love you Saint Rita.

    St. Rita,
    Please intercede on my behalf, kindly ask the Lord:
    Lord please bless our marriage.
    May we love one another through Him and love Him through one another.
    May we love our marriage and honor it with fidelity.
    May the Holy Spirit come upon us, giving us his gifts, fruits, and virtues making us strong against temptations that would hurt our marriage.
    May we have faith.
    May we give in to our Lords will, always.
    May we bear our crosses with His help and your intercessions (St. Rita).
    May our children come back to the Church and baptize their children.
    Amen Amen

    St. Rita I call upon you to pray for my son and his baseball future. He so loves the game and it helps keep him focused. He gets off course and it scares me. Please pray that he recognizes the plan God has for him. That he trusts in God to lead him
    On his path and on the field.
