Prayer in Honor of St. Rita of Cascia

O God, who to St. Rita you gave
the great grace to love her enemies
in very truth, and both in her heart
and on her brow to bear the stigmata
of Your Passion, have regard, we ask You,
to her merits and her prayers,
and grant that we may wisely
show mercy to our enemies,
and so meditate on the pains of Your Passion
as to make our own the blessedness promised
to those who are meek
and to those who mourn.
