Santa Rita is a Catholic saint known for being a loving mother and a kind and patient wife. She is connected to flowers, and in particular roses. It is said that in her final days, she was asked if there was anything that she wished for. She asked for a rose from her garden, and was told that they were out of season, and unlikely to be blooming. But in a miraculous act, the friend found that there was a single red rose in front of her home, which her friend brought to her. On her feast days roses are blessed in front of the waiting congregation. She is also associated with white bees, who are said to have swarmed around her as a baby in her crib. They entered and exited her mouth peacefully, mystifying her family. They were believed to have been a sign that the child would have an industrious, virtuous and devoted career.
