St. Rita of Cascia - Now THAT'S A Statue

RitaPope Francis blessed a statue of St. Rita in St. Peter's Square on its way to the place where her relics are held. 

St. Rita is the patron saint of hopeless causes and those with headaches. She married at a young age, was a mother of twins, a widow (her husband was murdered), both sons died and she became a religious. She bore her trials with equanimity and remained close to Christ.
