O holy protectress of those who art in greatest need,
O you who shine as a star of hope
in the midst of darkness,
blessed Saint Rita,
bright mirror of God’s grace,
in patience and fortitude
you are a model of all states in life.
I unite my will with the will of God
through the merits of my Savior, Jesus Christ,
and in particular through his patient wearing of the crown of thorns,
which with tender devotion you daily contemplated.
Through the merits of the holy Virgin Mary
and your own graces and virtues,
I ask you to obtain my earnest petition,
provided it be for the greater glory of God
and my own sanctification.
Guide and purify my intention,
O holy protectress and advocate,
so that I may obtain the pardon of all my sins
and the grace to persevere daily,
as you did in walking with courage,
generosity, and fidelity down the path of life.
[Mention your intention(s) here…).
Saint Rita, advocate for the impossible,
pray for us.
Saint Rita, advocate of the helpless,
pray for us.
