Who is Rita?

We would want Rita in our squad..

On our search for inspiration, we came across Rita. The patron saint of abused wives, hopeless causes & mourning women. Now on first look, this may not be an inspirational tale, but by all accounts, Rita was a warrior, hopeful, determined and focused. 

Forced to marry an abusive man and give birth to two sons, she was patient and compassionate until the point that her husband was murdered in a blood feud.  The Rita Project does not affiliate itself with any specific religion or belief, however, this story of a St Rita is one that we wanted to share.
