Relive with us the story of this great Saint of the Impossible Saint Rita of Cascia
Bob and Penny discuss her birthplace in Roccaporena, and Cascia where she lived.
And her incorrupt body.
They tell about the miraculous bees that were part of her life.
Discussion about Cascia where she lived and witness her life in the Cloister.
Account of her miraculous entry into the community and the Cross from which she received the Stigmata, a thorn in her head.
She was the only daughter of a mother and father who feared for her well-being.
They married her to a young man who was completely opposite from her. He lived a life of sin, drinking and carousing with other women.
She prayed for him, until he finally repented. He was killed by his ex-comrades. His children vowed vengeance on them. St. Rita prayed that before they committed this act of murder against those who had killed her husband, the Lord would take them.
She stayed by the bedside of both boys as they died. Then, after much struggle, she entered the convent at an advanced age.
Saint Rita of Cascia is the Saint of the Impossible. Pray for her intercession.
