Rita

Thank you for visiting my new blog! Well, where to start? Hmmm...to start things off, here's Rita...



  • Long fish shaped wrap veil.
  • Made of black Casa Lace.
  • Fininshed with an iridescent bead and green sequined lace trim.
  • Measures 60" x 22".
  • Shipping and handing within the United States is included in the price of this veil.
I wanted to create something sparkly. So here you have it. On the right person--someone who's not a shrinking violet--Rita could be worn anytime, but somehow I think Rita's an especially great choice for midnight Christmas Mass.



Rita was inspired by a veil I made a while back for my friend, Diane. 


I couldn't reorder the exact trim that I'd used for Diane's veil, because it'd been discontinued--what a bummer! But instead I found this and I took a liking to it. It's a little more flashy than what I'd used for Diane's veil, but what the heck? I think it's so pretty.



This is one veil that stays on very, very well. It must be something about that trim, I think it gives just the right weight. Also, it wraps, so that helps keep it put, too.


                              St. Rita




Here St. Rita of Casia isn't depicted holding roses and figs, but she often is. More often than not, she's shown with the mystical wound on her forehead that you see here.

Rita was born during the middle ages to pious parents. At the age of twelve, she was married and for 18 years she remained the devoted wife an abusive man. They had two sons. After the tragic murder of her husband and death of their two sons, Rita applied for admission to the Augustiian nuns. She wasn't initially accepted, however through a series of miraculous events, she was eventually admitted.

Many miracles have been wrought by the intercession of St. Rita.


All those years, and here she lies. Incorruptible, even today her body is a testimony to our Holy Catholic Fait



Pray for us, O holy St. Rita, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

By thy perfect union with the Divine Will, 
By the heroic sufferings during thy married life, 
By the consolation thou didst experience at the conversion of thy husband, 
By the sacrifice of thy children rather than see them grievously offend God, 
By thy miraculous entrance into the convent, 
By thy severe penances and thrice daily bloody scourgings, 
By the suffering caused by the wound thou didst receive from the thorn of thy crucified Savior, 
By the divine love which consumed thy heart, 
By that remarkable devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, on which alone thou didst exist for four years, 
By the happiness with which thou didst part from thy trials to join thy Divine Spouse, 
By the perfect example thou gavest to people of every state of life. 
Amen.
