  1. I want to take this opportunity to thank St. Rita,St. Jude for walking with me and answering my prayers. My business was down almost with no clients and I’ve seen the hand of God. Ive started getting clients and will continue to pray and praise God. Thank you my blessed Saints. Give me the strength to continue helping people struggling with addictions

  2. I thank God, the Blessed Mother, St Rita, St. Jude, St. Anthony, St. Peregrine, St. Raphael, St. Michael, St. Martha, and St. Anne for prayers answered.

    In March, I had surgery to remove a cancerous nodule on my lung. The surgery went well without any complications. The surrounding lymph nodes were clean and unaffected. I will not need chemotherapy or anything else besides routine checks every 6 months.

    Thank you for answering my prayers. Praise Be.

  3. I wish to publish a thanksgiving to St. Rita for a 54 day novena which I have been praying to help with a difficult work situation. I’ve prayed hard for all medical staff at my hospital to stay busy where we have always been and not be sent to any other location during this time of Covid-19. So far, our staff has been truly blessed. I made an offering to a group of Benedictine sisters and would also like to make a donation at this site for all of the good work they are doing.

  4. On June 18, 2020 I began asking St. Rita to intercede on behalf of my husband in his career and in dealing with his widowed mother’s desperate health and financial situation. Within two days, $8,000 in social security back pay was unexpectedly deposited into his widowed mother’s bank account! She allowed my husband to begin helping with her finances (which is a miracle in itself), and on July 13th, she was able to retire from her job so she can rest and restore her health. Our prayers for my husband’s career were not answered, but we believe God will open another door of opportunity soon with intercession from St. Rita. I’m a life-long Catholic, but this is the first time I’ve turned to a saint for intercession. St. Rita has brought my family miracles and peace beyond understanding.

  5. I am very grateful for the intercession of St Rita. Due to the covid 19 crisis I lost my job and have believing God for a job that He put in my heart. 5 days into the novena I received postive response for two positions I have believing for. I still haven’t received the offer but continue to believe for the job that it is already mine in Jesus name. I will come back again to testify on God’s goodness and the powerful intercession of St. Rita.
    As we continue to pray for our different causes I wanted to take time to remind you that God has you at the palm of His hand (Isaiah 49:15-17) so don’t be afraid for He will never leave or forsake you (Isaiah 41:10) and finally those who put their trust in God will never be put to shame (Roman’s 10:11)

  6. I very thankful to Saint Rita for answered my prayer, I prayed with my current relationship situation to make better and stronger, I prayed that make uncomplicated all our complicated in relationship,. God is So Good, St. Rita answered my prayers. Today and counting St. Rita blessed my relationship and my partner,.
    When we pray make sure that comes from our heart to intercede our prayer.
    Thank you so much St. Rita for granted my prayers. I love you Lord.

  8. I am giving thanks to St. Rita and Holy Mary.
    My brother was hospitalized after two weeks of debilitating
    food poisoning. He spent 6 days in hospital. He health was declining daily.
    During this Corona pandemic, no visitors in hospital.
    I happened upon a Holy Card with St. Rita Novena.
    I prayed novena for his return to good health.

I know doctors and nurses are wonderful but NOTHING compares to the amazing power of prayer.

  16. Thank you St. Rita. I began praying your novena yesterday for the intention that my daughter and her fiance who were wavering in their faith and initially wanted to refuse pre-Cana would change their attitude and receive the sacrament of matrimony presided by a priest in a Catholic Church. Shortly after the praying day 2 of the novena my prayers were favorably answered. After speaking with the priest they will participate in pre-Cana and be wed in a Catholic ceremony. My continued prayers that they will be strengthened in their Catholic faith. Thank you St. Rita for intercession!

  19. I didn’t know who Saint Rita is, until praymorenovenas mail came in my inbox about Saint Rita’s novenas on early February. Driven by curiosity, I googled for Saint Rita and later found out that she is a patron of difficult or even impossible cases.
    I started to pray Saint Rita Novenas to get a new better job, which I’ve been looking for the past one and a half years. And my prayers answered by God through intercession of Mother Mary and Saint Rita: I found new better job and got hired in unlikely circumstance, amid coronavirus crisis. I thank God for His abundant blessing, Mother Mary and Saint Rita for their intercession.
    I encourage everyone: pray Saint Rita Novenas whenever you have desperate or difficult situation, and you’ll be amazed by the answer.

    The Lord truly hears intercessions by her.

  22. I would like to give a testimony on how my prayers with the intercession of St. Ritha were so faithfully answered.
    I had an almost impossible semester. As an engineering student, things are usually tough, but this last semester things seemed almost impossible. I was so stressed and overwhelmed by the number of assignments, tests, number of courses and the final year project.
    When doing my final exams for the semester, I downloaded the Novena to St. Ritha application and prayed a 9 day novena. I am so happy to say that today my results came in and I have passed all my courses with flying colors. More than I could ever hope for.
    I find the most important thing is to believe even though it can seem almost impossible to.
    Thankyou so much Lord, St. Ritha and all the heavens.

  30. It seems like there is so much to pray for, but for this novena to dear St. Rita, there was something foremost in my heart. My 6 year old has autism and we have struggled with getting him toilet trained. So I asked St. Rita to help with this, and the day after the novena was over, my son stayed dry the whole day (without wearing a pullup, he had big boy underwear on!)… he has been dry each day ever since. I didn’t want to put it here until February was over to see if God really worked this miracle through the intercession of St.Rita. Praise God! Thank you, St. Rita for your help!!! What a wonderful gift!

  33. God is so very good. I have had two big or Ayers answered. My son who very much wanted a job for which he interviewed and was offered the job. The first interview took place at the beginning of the St. Rita Novena. The job offer came a week later. This is truly the perfect job and it is a blessing he will be back in the USA for 2 years.

    I also prayed the Novena to St Jude late last year and had a miracle be the answer. The heirloom baptismal gown my grandmother made which I wore I wanted my second grandson to wear on his baptism day as did his brother who is 3 years older. His Godfather, my son, also wore the same gown. My sister who has the gown refused to let that happen. I wanted my youngest grandson to wear a gown made by his great- great grandmother. It turned out my daughter’s Godmother who is my first cousin, had a gown she had kept that our grandmother has also made. Through the grace of answered prayers I learned of this gown and so prayers were answered in a co,pletely different way then I had imagined.

  34. My husband has worked out of town for the last 1 1/2 years and it has been very sad for our family. We constantly prayed for a job close to home but he was unsuccessful in all his job applications. I came across the St. Rita Novena and earnestly prayed that she would intercede for my husband to find a job close to home. Yesterday, praise God, he was told he had a successful interview and would be hired on locally.
    Thank you, St. Rita, for your prayers! Our family can once more be together.

  35. Since the time I started this Novena on the 8th day I received a call saying I’ve been selected in the interview I attended, Yes I Prayed to get a job and my Prayers were answered all thanks to our Lord God Jesus Christ and Mother Mary and our beloved St.Rita. thank you for answering my prayers. God Bless you all, and I Pray that God answers all our Prayers.

  37. God has protected my children for me and I continue praying for that. St. Rita, please intercede for me so that my son, David will develop a close relationship with his family, Amen. Please pray for my son, Daniel, who will be seating for his first medical school board exam on Monday, that the Lord will help him do well in the exam. Also that the Lord will guide my oldest son who will start writing his Dissertation for his PhD program in April. Finally to help my daughter finish this semester in a very good academic standing and be able to secure internship this summer, Amen.

  38. Through this novena, I was cured of some infections. Also, it was difficult convincing a friend who doesn’t like spending time in church to attend a 6-hour adoration program and after praying to St. Rita, he called me to tell me he will love to attend the adoration and he actually did.
    I thank St. Rita for her intercession and I’m grateful to God for His mercies and kindness.

  39. I prayed St Rita’s novena for various points and one of them was a new job with better pay and indeed I got a good job with a better pay and I promised to share my testimony if any of my points was answered. I am still hoping for the rest of the points to be answered.
    Thank you Jesus!!!

    My daughter passed her exams with great marks. It looked almost impossible for her to clear her exams but by the GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST she cleared them and even got complimented by the school supervisor…” Jochell has shown tremendous improvement in the final exams” All praise and Glory to you Lord Jesus Christ. St Rita keep praying for me and my families good health and safety 🙏

  46. I just want to thank God and honour St. Rita of impossible cases for coming through for me.
    I was relieved of my job unjustly and I had no hope or clue how to get a job speedily, being the bread winner and single parent.
    2 days after the end of the Novena, I got a call for an interview, despite not getting favourable answers from other recruiters.

But the constant arguments turned into him deciding to leave and telling me he didn’t feel the same. I prayed to St. Rita, patron of the impossible for her intercession to restore my relationship. I visited the blessed sacrament daily. After constant prayer, I received the good news from the love of my life that he couldn’t leave the relationship, he loved me and was not going to let all those years go. He missed me and was willing to work through our differences. He asked for forgiveness for the arguments and said we would work towards a better relationship with the Lords blessing. Thank you St. Rita! Thank you Jesus!
