I’ve never prayed to a Saint before, and frankly I didn’t feel like I knew what I was doing. I just did a little research and did what I thought was right.
My boyfriend (who is Catholic) broke his leg about two months ago. He had surgery and everything seemed to be fine. As soon as he was able to get rid of his crutches and begin walking in an air cast, there were complications and he had to be non-weightbearing again. His tendons weren’t healing correctly. He was really disappointed when he found out he might have to have surgery again and not walk for another two months.
I looked up patron saints and though, hey, it can’t hurt. I’m in the process of becoming Catholic myself, so I felt a little easier about it, but I still didn’t totally know what to do. I found a prayer to St. Rita since she is a patron Saint of healing the sick.
I got a call today from my boyfriend and he doesn’t have to have surgery. He will be off his crutches in a few weeks. I know that this might seem like a small victory to some, but I just wanted to share. Am I celebrating too early in thinking that St. Rita helped me? I’d like to think so, but I’m also new at the Saint prayer thing. Any thoughts?
