Monday of the Sixth Week of Easter (May 22, St. Rita of Cascia)

"Saint Rita of Cascia (Born Margherita Lotti 1381 - May 22, 1457)....is remembered for her Christian values as a model wife and mother who made efforts to convert her husband from his abusive behavior. Upon the murder of her husband by another feuding family, she sought to dissuade her sons from revenge before their calamitous death. She subsequently joined an Augustinian community of religious sisters....Her body, which has remained incorrupt over the centuries, is venerated today in the shrine at Cascia, which bears her name" (Wikepedia).
