Prayer 1 - Prayer to St. Rita, Helper of the Hopeless

Of those in need, St. Rita,
So humble, pure and patient,
Whose pleadings with your Divine Spouse
Are irresistible,
Obtain for me
From your Crucified Jesus
The request I make of you.

(Mention request.)

Be propitious towards me
For the greater glory of God,
And I promise to honor you
And to sing your praise forever.
O glorious St. Rita,
Who miraculously participated
In the sorrowful Passion
Of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
Obtain for me
The grace to suffer with resignation
The troubles of this life,
And protect me in all my needs.


Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be (3 times)
