Prayer to St. Rita of Cascia

O glorious Saint Rita, during your entire life on earth, you found your happiness by following the will of our Heavenly Father. Help me this day to trust God’s designs for me and to give myself to God, as you did, without fear and without counting the cost. May I be generous in serving the needs. of others, patient in difficulty, and forgiving of those who offend me.

Be with me, so that I may. accept the mystery of the cross of Jesus and may come to experience its power to heal and to save.


Throughout life we experience a number a number of challenging circumstances in which we are invited to trust God rather than our own ways. Perhaps we are facing a difficult decision, an uncertain future, a disappointment, forgiveness, etc. This prayer helps us to ask God for the grace to respond to His invitation to place our difficult situations into the hands of God as Saint Rita did.
