Rita was forced into an arranged marriage with a mean-spirited man. Through her love, patience and prayer, he repented but soon after was murdered. Their two sons wanted revenge. Rita's love and prayers converted their hearts. Rita joined an Augustinian convent where she sought intensely to suffer as Christ did. Miraculously, a thorn from a crucifix left her with a wound in her head - a permanent mark of suffering shared with Christ.
