Saint Rita of Cascia - Saint of Impossible Causes

Saint Rita of Cascia : Bob and Penny Lord

Saint Rita of Cascia

Born of a very devout mother and father who, in times when families were feuding amongst themselves, were called by some, "Jesus Christ’s peacemakers," it would appear from the very moment of her birth, God had special designs on Rita. There is a tradition in Roccaporena that as an infant, while she slept in a basket, in the fields where her parents were working, white bees swarmed around Rita’s open mouth. Not only did the bees not sting her, but it is said that they dropped honey into her mouth without her uttering a cry of warning to her parents. One of the farmers, seeing the swarm of bees, tried to disperse them with his arm that had been deeply wounded by a scythe. His arm stopped bleeding and he was immediately healed.

Almost two hundred years after she died, a strange thing began to happen. At the Monastery in Cascia, white bees came out of the walls of the Monastery during Holy Week of each year and remained until the feast day of Saint Rita, May 22nd, when they returned to hibernation until Holy Week of the following year. Pope Urban VIII, learning of the mysterious bees which buzzed about the walls of the Monastery where Saint Rita had lived, requested that one of the them be brought to him in Rome. After a careful examination of the bee, he tied a silk thread around it; then set it free, only to have it later discovered in its hive at the Monastery in Cascia, 138 kilometers away. And so the tradition of the bees began. The holes in the wall where the bees traditionally remain until the following year, are plainly in view for pilgrims journeying till today to the Monastery. Coincidence or miracle? We are believers in miracles! When we see the Lord’s intervention in a physical way that would otherwise be considered unconventional or phenomenal, for us, it’s just His way of letting us know that He is with us, watching over us. Since the very breath we breathe is a miracle, we think we can call the extraordinary miraculous.

Saints And Other Powerful
Women in the Church


Bob and Penny have taken 10 of the most powerful women in the Church of yesterday and today, and shared them in a way that can be understood by all. They write about these women in their simple and engaging style, which has placed them among the most popular Catholic writers of the day.
Each of these 10 women are Role Models for the faithful of today.  Read how they suffered rejection by their peers, discrimination because of sex, and how they rose above all of it to become movers and shakers of the world.  There is a common thread, which gave them the strength to go on when others would have backed down -their devotion to the Holy Eucharist and Mother Mary and an unbending commitment to their vows, most especially that of obedience.

Saints And Other Powerful
In The Church

Down through the ages, men and women have given their lives to carry out the command of Jesus.  Bob and Penny Lord have tracked the lives of 12 men who have said, Yes! to Jesus, and dedicated their lives to that Yes!, some at the cost of their lives.  Their biographies parallel the times of crisis in our Church.  Bob and Penny have set their sights on the man and the time in which he lived.  They have started at the beginning of our infant Church, with one of the greatest adventurers our Faith has ever known, Paul the Apostle, and continued to our present day, ending with a Paul of the Electronic Age, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.
They have focus on the problems in the world and the Church at these crucial times in our history, the men the Lord sent to save the world and the Church from destruction, the struggles they encountered along the way, and the ultimate triumph of Jesus through His Powerful Men in the Church.
