SAINT RITA - TO DEAL WITH A DIFFICULT HUSBAND
People make novenas. Dat's all tuh St. Rita. She had two sons an' a husband dat were very cruel an' people go an' pray tuh her if dey have any troubles or difficulties with their husbands. Why, it's de whole way, if it's death - or jes' whatevah she desires tuh move - but practically, mostly they die.

This is very dangerous information. Saint Rita HATES men; all men. You shouldn't even have her statue in your house if you have sons or a husband! She was very abused by the men folk in her home. The old folks say that she will cause thier death. You should never petition her to go after a male unless you don't care what happens to them. She works with women only! This is not a saint to take lightly. Momma Starr
