Saint of the Month

St. Rita of Cascia - May Saint of the Month  (Virtue is Perservance)
 
The saint of the month for May is St. Rita. St. Rita grew up on a farm and was naturally very smart. From her very religious parents Rita learned her prayers by heart. Rita’s parents wanted her to marry but Rita desired to be a nun. Rita followed her parent’s wishes and married the man of her parents’ choice. The man turned out to be a brute and a murderer. Rita’s prayers and patience caused grace to fill the soul of her husband and he repented. Later on Rita’s husband’s enemies murdered him. Their sons sought revenge but caught a fatal fever and they repented. Rita was now all alone so she entered the convent of the Augustinian nuns where she died on May 24, 1457. Having fulfilled the vocations of daughter, wife, mother, widow, and nun. On May 24, 1900, Pope Leo XIII canonized St. Rita, making her the saint of impossible and desperate cases. St. Rita’s body is incorrupt which means her body does not decay. Her feast is observed on the anniversary of her death on May 22.
