Even if one would ignore the narration by historians on how Cascia and Roccaporena were the places where Santa Rita lived, the unique atmosphere of this corner of Umbria would suffice to arouse devotion, peace and mysticism in the soul of the believer.
Pilgrims arrive from all over the world to this small village, the beating heart of Augustinian spirituality.
Here are carefully preserved some of the most significant sites marking the life of the Saint of the Impossible: the Monastery where Rita consecrated herself to God, the Basilica where the incorrupt body of the Saint is kept, the house where she was born and the house where she lived with her husband and children, the Lazaret, the Sacred Rock, the Garden of Miracle, and the Sanctuary of Roccaporena.
There are just so many events through which one can live and discover the message of peace that St. Rita has left to her believers. Among them there is the Passage to the Urn: every last Thursday of the month, throughout the year, after the Holy Mass at 6:00 p.m., it is possible to enter the Chapel where the body of the Saint rests. Special mention goes to the Novena of Santa Rita, i.e. the 9 days leading up to May 22, full of suggestion and initiatives. It is impossible not to mention the Feast of Roses and Rites, an event held on the penultimate or last Sunday of June, born to celebrate the kindness of God who wanted to comfort the dying Rita with the gift of the rose, flourished in Roccaporena in the middle of winter.
