Publisher's Description

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. 132 pgs, PB

Author Bio

The Rev. Father Joseph Sicardo, O.S.A., was a Spanish priest and author of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. His biography of St. Rita of Cascia: Saint of the Impossible was originally published in 1916 by D. B. Hansen and Sons, Chicago. Additionally, the work was translated by Fr. Dan J. Murphy, and is firmly based on the historical facts of the saint\'s life, as intended by the author. Father Sicardo\'s work was retypeset and reprinted by TAN in 1990, and also received the Cum Permissu Superiorum, Nihil Obstat, and Imprimatur upon publication.
