May 22 is the feast day of St. Rita, an Augustinian nun from 14th-century Cascia, Italy. She is the patroness of impossible causes and hopeless circumstances because of her difficult and disappointing life. Through her trials God used her in remarkable ways. Now she assists from heaven those who plead for her intercession for their own seemingly impossible and hopeless circumstances.

From an early age St. Rita desired to become a nun, but her parents insisted that she marry. Out of obedience to her parents' wishes, St. Rita entered an arranged marriage at the age of twelve. Adding to her disappointment, her husband was cruel and harsh; she spent eighteen years in a very difficult relationship. Her husband eventually became physically abusive, yet Rita met his cruelty with kindness and patience. After many years of prayer, patience, and trust in God, she eventually won her husband over to greater civility and kindness. She also bore two sons whom she loved deeply.

In the 14th century, Italy was rampant with warring families caught in a vicious circle of assassinations and bloody vendettas. St. Rita's family was caught up in this strife that was so entrenched in society at that time. Her husband was murdered as a result of the infamous rivalry between the aristocratic families of the Guelphs and the Ghibellines. St. Rita mourned her husband's death and interceded for his soul with great earnest.

Rita's two young sons, in keeping with the vice of the day, talked of avenging their father's death. She did all she could to guide her children into forgiveness, but was unable to dissuade them from their evil intentions of violence and revenge. Prayer was her only hope. She pleaded with God that he would prevent the evil swelling up in the hearts of her sons, or allow them to die before they had the chance to commit a mortal sin and be separated from God forever in hell.

God granted her prayers. Both of her sons fell sick and died within a year, and in a state of grace; God intervened and prevented them from following the evil path of their father. After the death of her husband and her two sons, St. Rita was all alone in the world. She again sought to enter the convent, as had been her desire from childhood. However, she was turned away because of her family's association with the civil strife; some of the sisters living in the convent were family relations of the men who were responsible for killing her husband. To maintain peace in the convent, she was denied entry.

St. Rita, again facing crushing disappointment and yet another impossible situation, had recourse to prayer and the intercession of the saints. St. Rita's sincerity and spirit of charity and forgiveness prevailed, and she was eventually granted entry into the convent. She became known as a holy and prayerful nun.

Once while praying before a crucifix, St. Rita received a visible wound on her forehead. This was a visible mark (stigmata) of Jesus' wound from the crown of thorns, symbolizing St. Rita's unity with Christ in his sufferings. She enjoyed many mystical experiences with Christ during the forty years she lived in the convent. She died on May 22 when she was in her seventies.

Now, more than ever, the Church is in need of young men and women eager to commit their lives to serving in a sacrificial way through the priesthood and consecrated life. As you know, this cannot be accomplished without prayer. In 2001, the Office of Vocations developed the Vocation Prayer Chalice Program designed to encourage families to pray together for an increase of vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.

With the help of the Serra Club of Miami, we invite you to participate in this program and help cultivate a positive environment dedicated to fostering future vocations within the Archdiocese of Miami. The Vocation Prayer Chalice Program, through a series of reflections, encourages families to participate in regular prayerful discussions about the priesthood and consecrated life.

Each Saturday/Sunday at Mass, volunteer parishioners will accept the responsibility of praying for vocations at home with their family. Father will call the family to the altar after communion to receive the Chalice and prayers. The family takes the Chalice home and displays it in a prominent place of honor for all members to see during the week. At a special time each day, perhaps after dinner or before bed, the family will come together to pray for and concentrate on vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and consecrated life and at the same time, explain and prompt young children and teenagers to consider how God is calling them into a deeper relationship with Him. Then the chalice will need to be returned to the church office on Friday.

If interested in participating in this program please email the office at to be put on the list.

Scripture Insights

Today is the Solemnity of Pentecost, when we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples and their sharing of the Good News of Jesus Christ with the world. This day is acknowledged as the birth of the Church, since it is the day when the frightened and confused disciples emerged from the upper room, boldly proclaiming the mighty acts of God through the crucified and risen Lord.

In these readings, the Holy Spirit is the actor, the subject, the doer of all the verbs. The hymn “Veni, Sancte Spiritus” asks the Spirit to shine, fill, heal, renew, wash, bend, melt, warm, guide, and give joy. In Acts 2, the disciples are first passive recipients of the Spirit’s power; the tongues of fire were perceived by them, and they were filled. Only after the Spirit empowers them do they begin to speak. Paul declares that the Galatians are led by either the Spirit or the law. In John 15 and 16, the Spirit is the active subject of all the verbs: testify, guide, speak, glorify, take, declare. The disciples role? To listen and to be led.

Letting ourselves be led isn't easy. We’re taught to forge our own paths. These readings call us to learn to be led, to become sensitive to the guiding nudges of the Spirit. This does not mean that Christians remain passive. In Acts, as in John, the disciples of Jesus are commissioned to bear witness to the Good News in their preaching, healing, and teaching. But the Spirit’s power is the source of ours.

The Spirit’s work is primary, and ours is secondary. The Christian’s job is to bear fruit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These virtues may not come naturally to us; some of them might take hard work. As Paul graphically says, we must crucify our sinful desires first. Pentecost teaches that that the fruit of the Spirit is finally the result of the Spirit’s cultivation of the soil of our hearts rather than our striving. We prepare the soil; the Spirit grows the seeds.

We have arrived at the final day of Easter Time! “Alleluia” has filled our heats for 50 days now. Why fifty? In Scripture,seven often symbolizes the number of perfection. Seven days in a week, times seven weeks, gets us to forty-nine; add one to reach fifty, because God is always more than even our most perfect praise! For 50 days we have been celebrating the risen Christ and learning more and more about what he had to teach us. Even tually Jesus had to go back to the Father, today we hear how Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be with them and us forever.
