Saint Rita of Cascia – Feast Day
Today we celebrate the holy feast day of Saint Rita of Cascia. Known for her mystical experiences, she is most often depicted with her unique stigmata – the wound of the thorn in her forehead. Saint Rita was also married and had children. But her husband passed away, and when her children grew older Saint Rita became an Augustinian Nun. Saint Rita is the patron Saint of healing wounds, lonely people, tumors, unhappy married women and desperate situations. Because of her great favor with God there is hardly a prayer she won’t answer.
As mentioned in previous posts, this is an ongoing display of our Holy Card Project. Holy Cards will continue to be added as our collections align with Feast Days of the Saints in our collection.
