Novena to St. Rita, Saint of Impossible Causes

Wrote: she really wanted to be a nun from an early age.  after her husband was murdered by his enemies and her children both died, she applied for admission to the convent but the augustinian nuns told her they didn't accept widows.  she persevered and they finally accepted her, getting themselves a saint in the process.

St. Rita actually flew at night from her home to the convent. It was impossible to get in without permission since the place was inexpugnable. This incredible miracle convinced the nuns of the will of God.
