Saint Rita of Cascia

Today is May 22nd and that means that it is my 8th anniversary of becoming (and remaining) sober. It is also the Feast Day of St. Rita of Cascia, information on her life can be found here:

Saint Rita of Cascia

(Via SQPN.)

She is the Patroness of impossible, lost and forgotten causes. That is something that a lot of us alcoholics and addict can relate to. We were considered all of those at one point.

She is also the Patroness of physical and sexual abuse victims, those in difficult or troubled marriages.

Know someone, perhaps yourself, who might like Catholic devotionals for alcoholics? Please take a look at my books! "The Stations of the Cross for Alcoholics" and "The Recovery Rosary: Reflections for Alcoholics and Addicts" (Thank you!!)


  1. Paul, you are the strongest person I know! Congratulations on your 8 continual years of sobriety, baby! I LOVE YOU! I wish I had just one iota of your strength of character and conviction! Thanks HOLY SPIRIT for helping Paul, and for bringing us together. I LOVE YOU BOTH!
