St. Rita of Cascia Comments

Augustiniannun, also called Margarita. She was born in Roccaporena, near Spoleto, Italy, in 1381, and expressed from an early age the desire to become a nun. Her elderly parents insisted that she be married at the age of twelve to a man described in accounts of her life as cruel and harsh.

    Dear St Rita, I would like to thank you again for your help a few months ago. I had diligently prayed to you for your help in helping me find a job. I was very stressed and lost and did not know what to do, I was breaking down then. I went to the church and prayed to you then. I had also prayed for your intercession for my friend who sought for a job. I prayed for the both of us. I am thankful that within a week, I miraculously obtained a job on the spot. I am lucky and happy that I was able to find a supportive work environment. I would also like to thank you that you were able to make the job possible for my friend who was worried that the circumstances would not permit her to obtain the job. I continue to pray to you again for your intercession. Help me to continue to trust in God, have faith in him that he is helping me with my current situation, in that to reunite with that lost love in my life. For us to reconcile into a more committed and loving relationship. Please St Rita, I pray that you continue to plead my case to God for that second chance. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    St Rita, you know that I have been praying to your for your help for how long. I thank you for listening to me at my lowest and I continue to pray to you with my appreciation. I pray that you will continually give me hope and trust in God that he is currently helping me with the intention that I have been seeking for these past few months now. I pray that you will give me strength to believe that God has already granted this intention, but that I must now be patient for it to happen. Please continually pray for me and help me with my intention.

    Saint Rita, please hear my prayer. I pray that when the time is right that God will grant my husband and I healthy children and that I am not sterile. I pray that our marriage continues to be blessed with lots of love and laughter. I pray that our financial issues are no more soon, as it can cause my mind to wander and my heart to hurt. I pray that those who also are having troubles that which seems impossible can find solace in you. I pray for my husband and our familes. I pray for those who do not know God's love that you can touch their hearts and lead them to Him. I pray that I can continue to help the dying and provide a sense of comfort to them and their families, as well as provide them with the most comfortable death as possible. In God's name I pray, Amen.

    St Rita, please pray for my daughter as she has surgery soon. She and her husband have had 3 miscarriages during their marriage and are deeply saddened and hurt, the surgery is to try to find out what is causing the problem. She has been warned by the doctors that they may not be able to help and she may never be able to carry a child. Lord Jesus, have mercy.

    Dear St Rita, I am so lonely. I had two abusive alcoholic husbands, I had an aunt sleep with my husband, I lost a son to addiction, my family is indifferent. I am 50, bankrupt, in foreclosure, and so sad life doesn't seem worth living any more. I didn't deserve what my husbands gave me. I was good to my son. I loved my family. I'm so lonely. Please give me back MJL, please lead MJP to me, please bring my son back. I'm not unpleasant, fat, ugly, addicted, mean; I do not understand why no body loves me. But I'm 50 and no one does and I've tried so hard. I'm one of the impossible causes in life and don't understand why. Please bring MJL back to me; we could have had everything. Please with MJP. Please my son. I just want to love and be loved. I just was a life partner. It's just somehow impossible for me. Please intercede on my behalf with Christ and Our Heavenly father. He said ask and you will receive, but I have asked, and receive nothing. He said what father would give his child a stone rather than bread, but I have only received stones. It seems my prayers are never heard. I seems only the devil listens to me and responds to my pain and lonliness with evil ungodly suggestions. I resist, I try to have faith, but nothing works for me. I'm unloved and forgotten and left out, and I'm a good woman. I don't understand why people treat me so contemptuously, please, you understand, please speak for me and pray for me to God. I ask to you St Rita, I am so hopeless and my life seems so impossible and unhappy. And I've tried so hard to do the right thing and make it work. Please, please, please St Rita, hear me and intercede for me. Please, a husband and my son, and love and goodness. Please, please, please.
