Weekly Rosary to Santa Rita da Cascia with the Figli Maria SS. Addolorata in Brooklyn, New York

Flowers were offered
to our beloved patroness
Saint Rita, you who enjoy in heaven the Supreme Good, true lover of the pains that Jesus suffered for us — I Mystery of the Rosary of St. Rita
After missing a week, it was good to get back to the hebdomadal prayer service in honor of St. Rita of Cascia Friday evening with my friends from Associazione Culturale Pugliese Figli Maria SS. Addolorata. Week ten of the fifteen week devotion, members packed into the society’s chapel (located in the basement of the Nazareth Center on the corner of 62nd St. and Bay Ridge Parkway in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn) to meditate on the Mysteries and offer our prayers for the sick, the happy repose of the souls of our ancestors, and for cooler heads to prevail over Syria. We also sang hymns, prayed the Rosary and finished with the Litany of St. Rita.
Devotees lit prayer candles before the service
The society will be organizing a pilgrimage to the National Shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia in Philadelphia, PA on Sunday, May 20th (Details TBA). There will be a Feast Day Mass and small procession on Tuesday, May 22nd, at 7:30pm at St. Athanasius Church (2154 61st St.) in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Anyone interested in participating with the Figli Maria SS. Addolorata should call Lucrezia at 917-509-2803 or find them on Facebook at Figli Maria S.S. Addolorata. Evviva Santa Rita!
