Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk
St. Rita of Cascia.
She was in an unhappy marriage, but due to her virtuous life and prayers, her husband and two sons eventually converted.
Saint Joseph and Mary our Mother.
I know her husband converted, but her sons were on the verge of committing murder for revenge and she prayed that God take them back to heaven instead of committing a greivous sin on earth, and so they died. Never heard of a story that they converted or relented from wanting revenge. If they wavered in their revenge, why would God have to take them?
Anyway, there are many Saints who are also parents. Pray to Sts. Joachim and Ann, parents of our Blessed Mother.
patrons of difficult marriages
•Catherine of Genoa
•Dorothy of Montau
•Edward the Confessor
•Elizabeth of Portugal
•Hedwig of Andechs
•Margaret the Barefooted
•Nicholas of Flue
•Rita of Cascia
•Theodore of Sykeon
I didn’t know there were quite so many saints who were patrons of unhappy marriages, Beth, great list.
My intuitive choice is The Holy Family.
Happy New Year, Eugen.
St Rita she helped me several times with this, when my parents were arguing.
