Rosary Radio is a Rosary Group.

The world is always in turmoil but today the most horrible, unthinkable things are happening all around it. For those of us who aren't in a war zone or worried about not having enough food to eat, our ordinary everyday lives can still be a challenge. What can we do to help? Prayer can be a source of help to some of us. To say the Rosary you need not be Catholic to join in. You don't have to own a set of Rosary beads. All you need is to prayer with us. ~Jan at Rosary Radio

Saint Zita

                                         April 27

Saint Zita of Lucca



Saint Zita lived during the 13th century in Italy. She is a patron saint, of single women, rape victims, homemakers, waiters and waitresses, household servants (such as maids and butlers), people who have been ridiculed for their piety, and people who have lost keys that they want help finding.


Patron Saint of:
butlers, domestic servants, homemakers, housemaids, lost keys, maids, manservants, people ridiculed for their piety, rape victims, servants, servers, single laywomen, waiters, waitpersons, waitresses, Lucca, Italy
Extract from St. Zita of Lucca: “Zita is a good saint for those of us who sometimes lose a chance to do some good by waiting to do something better. St. Francis of Assisi was still living when Zita was born to poor, devout Italian parents. From the age of 12 until her death, she worked as a servant for the Fatinelli family in Lucca. She was a hard worker, pious and generous. Although that dedication provoked jealousy on the part of some other servants, Zita won them over by her patience. As the years passed, she became famous for helping the sick, the poor and the imprisoned. She was regarded locally as a saint soon after her death; that title was officially given to her in 1696.”

Extract from Saint Zita of Lucca. “Born to a very poor but pious family. At age twelve she became a domestic servant for the wealthy Fainelli family in Lucca, Italy, a position she kept all her life; she looked at it as a way to serve God. She often gave her own food, and sometimes that of her master, to those poorer than herself, which caused her to get in frequent trouble with her employers and the other servants in the house who resented her. However, she did such a fine job she was eventually placed in charge of the house, and entrusted with its keys. Her reputation was such that Dante in the Inferno referred to the city of Lucca as ‘Santa Zita.’”
