Prayer for consecrated Persons

O Saint Rita, you who from the earliest days
of your miraculous entrance into the monastery
formed the example and the mirror of the cloistered,
you who grew in fervour so as to achieve
heroism in virtue, grant that I too may never fail
in the exact observance of the Gospel, rules, vows
and practices of my institute.

Thus I can be like you,
who so well imitated our Lord Jesus Christ.
