St RITA-OF-CASCIA

Christian Saint

Persistent Augustinian nun.

After eighteen years of violent abuse from a drunken husband, she was left with two loutish teenage sons when he got himself murdered.

She was fed up with it all and applied to join the Augustinians, but they rejected her because she wasn’t a virgin. She promised she wouldn’t be doing anything unvirginal ever again.

After knocking on their door for two years she was eventually admitted — because it was obvious they were never going to get rid of her.

Once inside, she proved how mean they had been, and won Sainthood awards for mystic contemplation and nursing the sick.
