Saint Rita

Cult and canonization

Santa Rita was worshiped by many of his faithful immediately after his death for her prodigious events, referring to her intercession, so that she gained the "holy of the impossible".

Her beatification took place in 1628, 180 years after her death, during the pontificate of Urban VIII.

In 1900 Lion XIII made her canonized as a saint. Her devout believers call her "holy of the impossible" because from the day of her death he realized the needy, prodigal miracles, and events deemed unworkable without her intercession.

Catholic popular devotion for Saint Rita is still one of the most widespread in the world, but since 1600 and by the Augustinians it is particularly rooted, as well as in Italy, Spain, Portugal and Latin America.

With the reform of the liturgical year of the Roman Martirology, May 22 is her feast.
