Happy Saint Rita's Day !
Have a lovely day everyone
I believe she is the patron saint of impossible causes, and abused or heartbroken women. Yay, St, Rita!
Yes, she is!
Her symbol is the rose. It is said that as she neared the end of her life, Rita was bedridden from tuberculosis. It was then that she asked a cousin who had come to visit for a rose from the garden in her old home. As it was January, her cousin did not expect to find any roses, but there was a single rose in bloom, which was brought back to Rita at the convent. She died four months later, on May 22, 1457.
O glorious St Rita, pray for us.
