Home Prayer of the Day A prayer to St. Rita, Patroness of Impossible Cases

A prayer to St. Rita, Patroness of Impossible Cases

St. Rita is the Patron Saint of difficult marriages, impossible causes, infertility and parenthood. Her Feast Day is May 22nd.

St. Rita, was born in a small town in Italy.  From an early age, she wished to be a nun. But her parents forced her to marry at a young age. Rita bore two sons while she’s in an abusive and miserable marriage until her persistence in prayer and faith brought a change in her husband. 

Sadly, it was a time of violent family feuding in Italy and her husband was killed in a fight.  Her sons then planned to avenge their father’s death, but fell ill and died. 

The childless and widow St. Rita, tried to fulfill her dreams of becoming a nun but she was rejected for being a widow. However, after some time they allowed her to join. 

She received partial stigmata while praying in front of the cross with a wound on her forehead as if from a thorn of Jesus’ crown of thorns.

St. Rita is the Patron Saint of difficult marriages, impossible causes, infertility, and parenthood. Her Feast Day is May 22nd.

Prayer to Saint Rita

O glorious St. Rita, your pleadings before the divine crucifix have been known to grant favors that many would call the impossible. Lovely St. Rita, so humble, so pure, so devoted in your love for thy crucified Jesus, speak on my behalf for my petition which seems so impossible from my humbled position. (Here mention your request ).

Be propitious, O glorious St. Rita, to my petition, showing thy power with God on behalf of thy supplicant. Be lavish to me, as thou has been in so many wonderful cases for the greater glory of God. I promise, dear St. Rita, if my petition is granted, to glorify thee, by making known thy favor, to bless and sing thy praises forever. Relying then upon thy merits and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus I pray.
