Pope Leo XIII canonized Rita on 24 May 1900. Her feast day is celebrated on 22nd May. At her canonization ceremony, she was bestowed the title of Patroness of Impossible Causes, while in many Catholic countries, Rita came to be known as the patroness of abused wives and heartbroken women.

” Saint Joseph, Patron of departed souls – pray for me. (Mention your intention) Amen.”
