O God, Who in Thine infinite tenderness

skill and efforts,
in reward for her compassionate love
and firm reliance upon Thy promises,
have pity upon our adversity

that the unbeliever may know
that Thou art the recompenser of the humble,
the defense of the helpless
and the strength of those who trust in Thee,
through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Amen.

O God, Who to St. Rita didst vouchsafe
the great grace to love her enemies in very truth,
and both in her heart
and on her brow to bear the stigmata of Thy Passion,
have regard, we beseech Thee,
to her merits and her prayers,
and grant that we may in such wise
show mercy to our enemies,
and so meditate on the pains of Thy Passion
as to make our own the blessedness promised
to those who are meek
and to those who mourn,
Who livest and reignest
world without end.

Amen.

O glorious Saint Rita,
who didst miraculously participate
in the sorrowful Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ,
obtain for me the grace to suffer with resignation
the troubles of this life
and protect me in all my needs.

Amen.
