WIWS and St. Rita

Joining the lovely ladies at Fine Linen and Purple again for What I Wore Sunday.
Yesterday was Sunday and Mother's Day. I hope everyone had a wonderful day.
Below is the only picture that was taken of me yesterday. It is not the best. Don't you just love the smile that screams, "Quick! Take the picture because the wind is trying to blow my sweater off and the neighbors are watching!"

The details: cardigan and pants are from Kohl's last year, red top is from Walmart last week, and the shoes are from Boscov's.

Moving on to St. Rita!
St. Rita of Cascia is one of my favorite saints. She is known as the Saint of the Impossible and Helper of the Hopeless. Her body is still preserved and on display at the Basilica of Saint Rita in Cascia, Italy. I had to do a report on this wonderful saint when I was in my eighth grade religious education class. The story of how St. Rita received a wound in her forehead while praying before a crucifix stayed with me and I picked her as my Confirmation Saint when I was in ninth grade.
Tomorrow is the first day of the Novena to St. Rita, and it ends on her feast day, May 22.

There is a beautiful novena prayer in St. Rita of Cascia: Saint of the Impossible, written by Fr. Joseph Sicardo, O.S.A.
A version of it can be found here

St. Rita is a powerful intercessor. I will start the novena to St. Rita tomorrow. If you have a personal intention, I hope you will ask St. Rita to intercede for you, too.
