St. Rita of Cascia Shines in Stained Glass 

Saint Rita of Cascia is not a typical female saint, and almost didn’t become a saint at all, since she was denied a place in the monastery due to the fact that she was a widow. Married at twelve, Margherita Roccaporena became the wife of Paolo Mancini in a union arranged by her parents. She gave birth to the first of two sons before the year was out, and spent the 18 years of her marriage as a model wife and mother, even though her husband was cruel and abusive. After his murder at the hands of enemies from a feuding family and the deaths of her sons, Rita decided to try to achieve her lifelong dream of entering the monastery to become a nun.

At first turned away, Rita persevered in her quest to serve the Lord as a member of the holy order, and after convincing the religious leaders by publicly forgiving her husband’s murderers, she was granted entrance and became a nun. During her life as a devoted sister in the monastery of Mary Magdalene, Saint Rita developed an open wound on her forehead, which was widely regarded as a stigmata signifying the crown of thorns of Jesus.  Her feast day is celebrated on May 22, the date of her death in 1427 and she is the patroness of loss and impossible causes. Her help is often sought by victims of spousal abuse.
