St Rita of Cascia
Saint of the Impossible
Fr Joseph Sicardo, O.S.A.
(wife, mother, widow, nun) – 1381 – 1457
For centuries St. Rita of Cascia has been one of the most popular saints in the Catholic church. She is know as the “Saint of the Impossible”, because of her amazing answers to prayer as well as the remarkable events of her own life.
Here are the classic stories from her life: the bees which attended her birth, her great early desire to be a nun, her disappointment in being being allowed to one and her marriage to a cruel husband, his conversion and his more; and how St Rita prevented her two young sons from taking revenge.
here also is the story of St Rita’s miraculous entry into the Augustinian Convent, her miraculous thorn wound, her servere penances and her many virtues.
Through litle documentation on St. Rita exists, Fr. Sicrdo has made her come alive again; his great love and admiration for her shine forth on every page. We are reissuing this book in the hope that many people will pray to her and let her prove to them the truth of her great name, Saint of the IMPOSSIBLE.
