Lovely Rita

And not the meter maid…

Yesterday as I was leaving Mass I got an email from a reader that blew me away.

The reader had been touring the Cathedral of the Immaculate in Monaco and stumbled across our favorite saint of impossible causes.

The reader had said a prayer for yours truly and my family. I am most grateful. As I have said, she’s begging us to seek her intercession and waiting to obtain great favors for us. Remember as well, that Rita, like all saints, is great because she points directly to Our Lord Jesus Christ. In her case, I imagine the thorn in her brow serves as an arrow pointing heavenward. She was devoted to the Blessed Mother and intimately united to her spouse, Jesus Christ.

Bring her your petitions.

St. Rita, pray for us!
