Santa Rita da Cascia
May 22nd will be my Name Day = Onomastico
Santa Rita is the Saint of the Impossible. One of the reason I was named after her is that there were complications at my birth and my Papa' decided to pray to Santa Rita without knowing that my Nonna in another room was doing the same. Well , everything turned out just fine and my family decided to call me Rita. I used to go to church on this day and there was always a basket of red roses close to her statue and the priest would benedict each rose and I would take one home. I loved to celebrate my Onomastico when I was back home. My favorite treat from my Mamma was " Omeletti in Brodo" = Crepe in chicken broth........Ahhhh? It's a special recipe just for me. May 22nd it's also the day that Dean and I bought our first home the house we leave in....18years ago.
On Santa Rita's day I will be at Glitterfest and I know she will keep me company.
Ciao for now Rita
