No word yet, but I just know it’s going to happen today! We’ve been praying to St. Rita (Patron of “the hopeless and impossible cases”) and after only two days of saying the prayer we got yesterday’s showing. We hadn’t had a showing in over 3 weeks.
Thank you all for your prayers. Please keep praying that we get a full-price offer today! I will be praying for you st_felicity, and please pray for Steve and his wife in Michigan that they can negotiate the offer they have on their house now to something they can live with.
Novena Prayer to St Rita of Cascia.
*(Let all know when your prayers have been answered) *
O Holy Patroness of those in need, St. Rita,
whose pleadings before thy Divine Lord are almost irresistible ,
who for thy lavishness in granting favors hast been called the advocate of the hopeless and even of the impossible; St. Rita so humble, so pure, so mortified, so patient and of such compassionate love for thy Crucified Jesus that thou couldst obtain from him whatsoever thou askest, on account of which all confidently have recourse to thee, expecting, if not always relief, at least comfort; be propitious to our petition, showing thy power with God on behalf of the suppliant; be lavish to us as thou
hast been in so many wonderful cases, for the greater glory of God, for the spreading of thine own devotion, and for the consolation of those who trust in thee.
We promise, if our petition is granted, to glorify, thee by making known thy favor, to bless and sing thy praises forever. Relying upon thy merits and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
We pray: (here mention request) Obtain for us our request By the singular merits of thy childhood
By thy perfect union with the Divine Will
By the heroic sufferings during thy married life
By the consolation thou didst experience at the conversion of thy husband
By the sacrifice of thy children rather than see them grievously offend God
By thy miraculous entrance into the convent
By thy severe penances and thrice daily bloody scourgings,
By the suffering caused by the wound thou didst receive from the thorn of thy crucified Savior,
By the divine love which consumed thy heart,
By that remarkable devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, on which alone thou didst exist for four years,
By the happiness with which thou didst part from thy trials to join thy Divine Spouse,
By the perfect example thou gavest to people of every state of life.
Pray for us, O holy St. Rita, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
*Pray to St Rita and she will answer your prayers
Tell everyone once your prayers have been answered. *
