    a million thanks. St Rita i asked for your help in an urgent matter and even though i was hoping you would help the enormous stress i was facing left a slight doubt in my mind, but sure enough you stood by me and helped in my hour of need. Please keep my faith strong as i go through this very dark journey and give me the strength to take one day at a time. With your presence in my life i know i can get through this difficult time and become a much better person for it. I can't thank you enough and im very glad to have been introduced to you.

    I would like to tell everyone that I had been trying to get a job and it seemed impossible due to a hiring freeze. I began to pray to Saint Rita of Cascia while I continued to pray to Saint Claire of Assisi, Saint Anthony of Padua and San Pancrasio. I got the job! I will continue to pray that I do well at this job and that I am able to hold on to this job despite talks of layoffs. I wish to thank The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and all my patron saints for their help especially Saint Rita at this time

    Oh Blessed St Rita, I thank you with my whole heart for interceeding on my behalf and allowing Jesus to hear my prayer that will truly require a miracle. I thank you so much for answering part of my prayer, I know that my son will benefit from it immensely. St Rita, I ask that you hear and answer the prayers of the many people who ask for your intercession, especially if it's for the greater will of God. May everyone here be blessed with your love...Amen.
