Saint Rita Novena - Day 1

Saint Rita Novena - Day 1

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Heavenly Father, you gave us St. Rita as an example of holiness and courage.

She shared in Jesus' passion when she received a wound on her head from the crown of thorns.

Help us to be holy like St. Rita.

We wish to be strengthened in difficult times so that we may understand the paschal mystery as St. Rita did.

Holy St. Rita, you have a great love for God. We pray to God for the troubles in our hearts.

Please enrich our prayers with your own confident and selfless prayers to the Lord. We offer our prayers for relief, please hear and bring our intentions to the Lord. 

(Mention your intentions here…)

St. Rita, you are the patron of the impossible. In our times of need and suffering we fly to you with confidence because you are close with the Lord. 

You were greatly burdened during your life and you know what we are going through now. We offer our prayers for relief, please hear and answer us. 

St. Rita, filled with compassion for the suffering of Christ. 

Pray for us. 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
