Novena 2 -Novena Prayer to St Rita

O holy protectress of those who are in utmost need, shining as a star of hope
in the midst of darkness, in patience and fortitude as the patriarch Job, scourge of devils, health of the sick,
deliverer of those in extreme need, admiration of saints and model of all states!
With confident trust, and firmly united to the adorable will of my God, through
the merits of my only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and in particular of that
painful crown of thorns which with a tender devotion thou didst daily contemplate;
through the merits of the most sweet Virgin Mary and thine own excellent graces and
virtues, I implore thee with my whole heart and soul, to obtain my earnest petition,
provided it be for the greater glory of God and my salvation

(mention your request).

Guide and purify my intention, O holy protectress and most dear advocate, that I may
obtain the pardon of all my sins and the grace to persevere daily, as thou didst, in
walking with courage and generosity and unwavering fidelity upon the heavenward path on
which the love of my sweet Lord desires to lead me.
