O powerful St. Rita,
rightly called Saint of the Impossible,
I come to you with confidence in my great need.
You know well my trials,
for you yourself were many times burdened in this life.
Come to my help,
speak for me,
pray with me,
intercede on my behalf before the Father.
I know that God has a most generous heart
and that he is a most loving Father.
Join your prayers to mine
and obtain for me the grace I desire

You who were so very pleasing to God on earth
and are so much so now in heaven,
I promise to use this favor, when granted,
to better my life,
to proclaim God's mercy,
and to make you more widely known and loved.
Amen.

Novena Prayer to St Rita of Cascia.
Traditionally said between the 13th and 22nd of May.
O HOLY PATRONESS of those in need, Saint 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; Saint 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 alwavs relief, at least comfort; be propitious to our petition, showing thy power with God on behalf of thy 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 then upon thy merits and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we pray thee grant that (here mention your request).
Obtain for us our request By the singular merits of thy childhood, By thy perfect union with the Divine Will, By thy 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 Saviour, 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, 0 holy Saint Rita, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray O GOD, Who in Thine infinite tenderness hast vouchsafed to regard the prayer of Thy servant, Blessed Rita, and dost grant to her supplication that which is impossible to human foresight, skill and efforts, in reward of her compassionate love and firm reliance on Thy promise, have pity on our adversity and succor us in our calamities, that the unbeliever may know Thou art the recompense of the humble, the defense of the helpless, and the strength of those who trust in Thee, through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.

Holy Patroness of those in need, Saint Rita, you were humble, pure and patient. Your pleadings with your divine Spouse are irresistible, so please obtain for me from our risen Jesus the request I make of you: {mention your petition}. Be kind ot me for the greater glory of God, and I shall honour you and sing your praises forever. Glorious Saint Rita, you miraculously participated in the sorrowful passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. Obtain for me now the grace to suffer with resignation the troubles of this life, and protect me in all my needs. Amen.

 
PREGHIERA  A  SANTA  RITA
 
     Sotto il peso e tra le angoscie del dolore, a te che tutti chiamano la Santa degli impossibili, io ricorro nella fiducia di presto averne soccorsi. Libera, ti prego, il mio povero cuore, dalle angu­stie che da ogni parte l'opprimono, e ridona la calma a questo spirito che geme, sempre pieno di affanni. E giacché riesce inutile ogni mezzo a procurarmi sollievo, totalmente confido in te che fosti da Dio prescelta per avvocata dei casi più disperati.
    Se sono di ostacolo al compimento dei miei desideri, i peccati miei, ottienimi da Dio ravvedimento e perdono. Non permettere, no, che più a lungo sparga lacrime di amarezza, premia la mia ferma speranza, ed io darò a conoscere dovunque le grandi tue misericordie verso gli animi afflitti.
    O ammirabile sposa del Crocifisso, intercedi ora e sempre per i miei bisogni.
   Gloria al Padre…
-         Santa Rita. Prega per noi!

The custom among the Augustinians of blessing and distributing roses on the Feast Day of St. Rita (May 22) is to commemorate the miraculous blooming of a rose in the garden of St. Rita's home in Rocca Porrena, Italy, in the month of January, when the ground was covered with snow. It also commemorates the heavenly odor which emanates from the body of the Saint, especially at times when she is particularly lavish in her favors, diffusing itself abroad and affecting remarkable cures. The Holy See, having been so impressed by this wonderful occurrence, caused it to be thoroughly investigated and finally accepted it as one of the three miracles required for the canonization of the Saint.
Prayer of Blessing
Almighty and eternal God,
By your word you make all things holy.
Pour out your blessing + upon those
Who will devoutly receive these roses,
Which we present to you in honor of St. Rita of Cascia,
And by the merits of your son Jesus' suffering and dying,
Grant them healing in their illness,
Courage and strength in carrying their cross,
And perseverance in following Christ,
Who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen
Sprinkle the roses with holy water before distribution.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

 

Sanctus Míchael Archángelus
Prínceps gloriosíssime caeléstis milítiae, sancte Míchael
Archángele, defénde nos in proelio advérsus príncipes et
potestátes, advérsus mundi rectóres tenebrárum harum,
contra spirituália nequítiae in caeléstibus.
Veni in auxílium hóminum, quos Deus ad imáginem
similitúdinis suae fecit, et a tyránnide diáboli emit prétio
magno.
Te custódem et patrónum sancta venerátur Ecclésia; tibi
trádidit Dóminus ánimas redemptórum in supérna
felicitáte locándas.
Deprecáre Deum pacis, ut cónterat Sátanam sub pédibus
nostris, ne ultra váleat captívos tenére hómines et Ecclésiae
nocére.
Offer nostras preces in conspéctu Altíssimi, ut cito
antícipent nos misericórdiae Dómini, et apprehéndas
dracónem, serpéntem antíquum, qui est diábolus et
sátanas et ligátum mittas in abýssum, ut non sedúcat
ámplius gentes.
Amen.
