St Rita Prayer and Novena

We pray the St Rita Prayer and Novena for her to intercede for us to God in times of impossible cases and special needs. While praying in front of the Crucifix of Jesus, St Rita of Cascia received a wound on her forehead which was perceived to be from Jesus’ crown of thorns. This was her partial stigmata.

St Rita Prayer

O dear St Rita of Cascia, you are truly our patron Saint of the Impossible cases and special needs. I confidently come to you now at my greatest moment of need.

Dear St Rita, you so well know my trials, tribulations, and the agony I am going through right now, for you also faced them too. Come to my aid, speak on my behalf, pray and intercede for me to God the Almighty Father.

I know very well that our Father in Heaven is a merciful, generous, and loving God. Please, join my prayers and yours and take them before the Almighty Father to help me with my need [mention your need].

St Rita, you were very pleasing to God while you were here on earth and still you are in heaven. I promise to use this favour that you will grant me to make my life better, to proclaim the mercy of God, and to make you renowned all over the world. Amen.

Prayer to St Rita

Dear St Rita, you who found happiness during your entire life on earth by following Our Heavenly Father’s will. Help me to trust all the plans that God has for me. Help me, without counting the cost, without fear and without limits, to offer myself, as you did, to his service.

Help me, St Rita, to be generous, as you were, to others. Help me to embrace patience in all times of difficulties and to forgive all those who are injurious to me.

Help me to understand in detail the Great Mystery of the Cross of Jesus so that I may experience deep in my heart its healing and saving power. Amen.
