Eagle Spirit Version

Holy patroness of those in need, Saint Rita, so humble, pure and patient, whose pleadings are irresistible, obtain for us our request ___________. Be gracious toward us, for the greater glory of God.



We should reflect upon our 'hopeless cause' or problem which defies solution until we are presented with a solution, or until we are ready to discontinue our reflections.
