St. Rita --"Saint of the Impossible"

Prayer to Saint Rita

O Holy Patroness of those in need, St.
Rita, whose pleadings before thy Divine
Lord are almost irresistible, who for they 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 thy suppliant; be lavish to
us, as thou hast been in so many wonderful
cases, for 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 then upon thy merits
and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we
pray thee grant that (here mention your request).

Obtain for us our request

By the singular merits of thy childhood,
By thy perfect union with the Divine Will,
By thy 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
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 examply 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.

Let us Pray

O God, Who in Thine infinite tenderness
hast vouchsafed to regard the prayer of
Thy servant, Blessed Rita, and dost grant to her
supplication that which is impossible to human
foresight, skill and efforts, in reward of her
compassionate love and firm reliance on Thy
promise, have pity on our adversity and succor
us in our calamities, that the unbeliever may
know Thou art the recompense of the humble,
the defense of the helpless, and the strength of
those who trust in Thee, through Jesus Christ,
Our Lord. Amen
