Item description for St. Rita of Cascia: Saint of the Impossible by Joseph a. Sicardo & Dan J. Murphy...

Overview
One of the most popular Saints in the Church for centuries, St. Rita is known as the "Saint of the Impossible" because of her amazing answers to prayers, as well as the remarkable events of her own life. Desirous of being a nun, she instead obeyed her parents and married. Her husband was cruel, and caused her much suffering, to which she responded with love and prayers and eventually converted him. After the death of her husband and two sons, Rita was able to enter a convent, where she devoted herself to prayer and penance. She abandoned herself totally to God, diminishing herself as He increased in her. An inspiring story of a soul completely resigned to God's will.

Reviews - What do customers think about St. Rita of Cascia: Saint of the Impossible?

Miracles are still possible   Jul 22, 2007
I had originally gone to this site to find a book about a mystic, a book I had read some years ago, and found it once again. The story of St. Rita was recommended. It was noted she was the saint of the impossible and having an issue at the time, I thought reading her life story would be an inspiration. I was not disappointed. What an amazing woman for her time and the present times as well. She had indeed walked with the saints, and still sets an example to be aspired to. In a time when miracles seem to be just a delusion, after reading about her and praying to St. Rita, I can honestly say this dear woman is closest to all that is good and holy. Anyone that is in need of hope should read this profound book. It's not all that long a read, but it will inspire and perhaps reinforce ones faith
that there is someone watching over us, and miracles are still possible after all.
 
St. Rita, Saint of the Impossible  Nov 24, 2002
I found St. Rita during a hard time in my life when I returned to the Catholic Faith. I think without her, I would still have many more troubles. I think through learning of her and her struggles it has helped me in my own. I ask her for help and I think I get what I need.

If you are interested in knowing about St. Rita then this book is for you. I just got done reading this and the chapter about all the miracles is just mindboggling.

Please read about this great Saint.

 
Review from the Publisher  Mar 15, 2001
The great love and admiration the author has for this remarkable saint shines through on every page. Read of St. Rita's disappointments, severe penances and many virtues as you relive her life as wife, mother and nun. Learn why she is known as a "Saint of the Impossible." An unforgettable story including cruelty, conversion, murder, revenge and miraculous solutions. Wow! 182pp. PB. Imprimatur.
