Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

St. Rita, rightly called Saint of the Impossible, I come to you with confidence in my great need. You know well my trials, for you yourself were many times burdened in this life. Come to my help, speak for me, pray with me, intercede on my behalf before the Father. I know that God has a most generous heart and that He is a most loving Father. Join your prayers to mine and obtain for me the grace I desire. Amen

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!
