SAINT OF THE WEEK:

Saint Rita of Cascia

Saint Rita of Cascia

Feast Day: May 22nd

1386–1457
Patron Saint of abuse victims, impossible causes, sickness, wounds, parenthood, and widows
Invoked against marital problems, fighting and discord, and infertility
Canonized by Pope Leo XIII on May 24, 1900

Quote:
"Dear brothers and sisters, the worldwide devotion to Saint Rita is symbolized by the rose. It is to be hoped that the life of everyone devoted to her will be like the rose picked in the garden of Roccaporena the winter before the saint’s death. That is, let it be a life sustained by passionate love for the Lord Jesus; a life capable of responding to suffering and to thorns with forgiveness and the total gift of self, in order to spread everywhere the good odor of Christ through a consistently lived proclamation of the Gospel." ~Address of Saint John Paul II

 

Saint Rita of Cascia, pray for us!
