In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth”.
Prayer of this day
Lord have mercy on the fact that I flee by myself and by my sins, on all the acts that I commit and hide in the eyes of others, on all my vile failings made in all conscience and that I then try to suffocate deep within myself, on all my accusing words and that I cannot silence, have mercy on all my miserable cowardice.
Send down to me the Spirit of repentance.
Lord, through the intercession of Saint Rita, help me to trust in You and only in You, allow the lost sheep to return to the flock washed of all their sins by Your true mercy.
Lord, I cry out to You: Do not allow my heart to become heavier, accept my tears and torments as an expiatory sacrifice and fill my soul with joy even in the darkness that surrounds me!
O divine providential refuge for those who suffer, I beg you to accept my prayer. Amen.
Sainte Rita, heroic in sacrifice, pray for us.
