PRAYERS TO ST. RITA OF CASCIA

Patroness of impossible causes


Novena Prayer to St Rita of Cascia

O Holy Patroness of those in need, St. Rita, whose pleadings before thy Divine Lord are almost irresistible, who for thy lavishness in granting favors hast been called the advocate of the hopeless and even of the impossible; St. Rita so humble, so pure, so mortified, so patient and of such compassionate love for thy Crucified Jesus that thou couldst obtain from him whatsoever thou askest, on account of which all confidently have recourse to thee, expecting, if not always relief, at least comfort; be propitious to our petition, showing thy power with God on behalf of the suppliant; be lavish to us as thou hast been in so many wonderful cases, or the greater glory of God, for the spreading of thine own devotion, and for the consolation of those who trust in thee.

We promise, if our petition is granted, to glorify, thee by making known thy favor, to bless and sing thy praises forever. Relying upon thy merits and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus,

We pray: (mention your request)

  • Obtain for us our request by the singular merits of thy childhood, 

  • By thy perfect union with the Divine Will, 

  • By the heroic sufferings during thy married life, 

  • By the consolation thou didst experience at the conversion of thy husband, 

  • By the sacrifice of thy children rather than see them grievously offend God, 

  • By thy miraculous entrance into the convent, 

  • By thy severe penances and thrice daily bloody scourgings, 

  • By the suffering caused by the wound thou didst receive from the thorn of thy crucified Savior, 

  • By the divine love which consumed thy heart, 

  • By that remarkable devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, on which alone thou didst exist for four years, 

  • By the happiness with which thou didst part from thy trials to join thy Divine Spouse, 

  • By the perfect example thou gavest to people of every state of life. 

Pray for us, O holy St. Rita, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Pray to St Rita and she will answer your prayers. Tell everyone once your prayers have been answered.
