“Margherita Lotti” (real name) or better known as “Santa Rita de Casia”, was a woman who longed to be a nun, however she married because of her father’s obligation.
In this way, she went through a lot of suffering and pain during the marriage, but she shielded herself through prayer and faith in God. Later, her husband made the decision to support her and convert to Catholicism in the same way.
The patron of the impossible
Through the Catholic history books obtained from that time, it is shown that Saint Rita suffered the death of her husband who was murdered. After that, her children wanted to avenge their father’s death.
Therefore, fearing that her children were going to commit a crime, she made many pleas to God, whose purpose of the requests was that he take them away from this life so that they do not do something crazy.
That is why, some time after the order was placed, their children died. In this way, being alone, Saint Rita gave herself to penance, prayer and works of charity.
It should be noted that on May 22 is the celebration of the Patron of the impossible in Latin America.
