St. Rita of Cascia

Some saints become of particular interest or devotion when some momentous event in our personal life happens to fall on that saint's feast day, as is the case for me with St. Rita (wedding anniversary).

She was born and died on this day, May the 22nd.

From Fr. Kienberger: "On May 24, 1900, Pope Leo XIII canonized St. Rita, heralding her as the saint of impossible and desperate cases...The Saint's prayers have aided countless youths in choosing a vocation which they never would have dreamed humanly possible to achieve."

Bitte fur mich St. Rita!
