St. Rita was a holy woman who was raised to sainthood, at the very beginning of the twentieth century – 1900, May 24 – at the opening of the Jubilee Year. More known as a mystic, St. Rita had led a heroic sanctified life in the positions of wife, mother, widow and later as a nun. This holy woman was a garden of virtues. God used to grant her, whatever she had asked for. Among the Spanish people, she is known as ‘Saint of impossibles’.
Rita was the only daughter, born to an Umbranian farmer couple, at their late age. Though from her childhood she had wished to join the convent, she had to get married due to the intervention of her parents. Two flowers blossomed in their married life. After the death of her husband and children, she joined the Augustinian Convent. From there, she climbed the steps of sanctity. She died in 1457. In the year 1900, the Iioly Throne proclaimed her, a Saint.
