Feast Day May 22nd
Patron of impossible causes (1381-1457) as a young girl, Rita was very interested in joining Augustinian nuns at Cascia and devoting her life to Christ. However, at age 12 she was betrothed and for nearly 20 years, she was married to an abusive man who mistreated her often.
Her husband died at the hands of enemies and although Rita's sons, initially intent on avenging their father's death, relented because their hearts were changed by their mother's prayers.
