The Real Story - Still as Inspiring 6 Feb. 2012
By Ralph Osgood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Saint Rita is a powerful Saint with a very unique life history; the pantheon of Saints is often criticized - right or wrong - with too many whose life histories are too far from the average person doing the devotion. Rita lived a "double life" - a full married life with children, and a life in the convent after that. This book dramatically clarifies this first life - her husband was not the abuser he is often claimed to be! The whole story is even more inspiring - and makes more sense - with this vital update. It is a short, very worthwhile read.
