SAINT RITA

Saint Rita of Cascia (1381 – 1457) was an Italian Catholic Augustinian nun, who suffered an abusive husband in an arranged marriage and later lost both her sons. At that time, she joined the convent. Saint Rita wears the black dress of the Augustinians and is most often associated with a rose due to two stories about her. The first is that she regularly brought food to the poor, which her husband prohibited. One day, as her husband confronted her and demanded to see what was hidden in her robes, God miraculously change the bread to roses and she was spared her husband’s wrath. The second story maintains that toward the end of her life, a friend from her hometown asked if there was anything she could do for Saint Rita, and Saint Rita responded with a wish for a rose from her garden. The friend did not expect to find a rose in January, yet when she went to check, there was a rose in bloom, which she carried back to Saint Rita. Saint Rita is the patron saint of lost or impossible causes, sickness, wounds, marital problems, abuse, and mothers.
