Prayer:

Burdened by the hurts and scars of life. Your own experiences of suffering and healing make you a compassionate advocate for those in pain. We seek your intercession for all who bear physical, emotional, or spiritual wounds. St Rita may your intercession be a balm for their wounds, leading them to wholeness and restoration. Amen.

Scripture:

Psalm 37:5:6
