Catholic Prayer: Novena to St. Rita
This novena prayer, although short is sufficient. It would be better of course to add, if time permits, three Hail Marys or say five times the Our Father, Haily Mary and Glory be to the Father, or to use some of the many well-loved novena prayers from other sources. Remember that prayers must be said with the lips in order to gain the indulgences. This novena begins on May 14 and ends on May 22.
O glorious St. Rita! You who so wonderfully participated in the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, obtain for me the grace to suffer with patience the pains of this life and protect me in all my needs.
300 days, once a day. Plenary, under usual conditions, if said daily for a month. S. Pen., March 2, 1936.Prayer Source: All Day With God by Blanche Jennings Thompson
