This first HD photo shows a statue dedicated to Rita of Cascia, with an inscription on the base of the statue stating Sainte Rita Patronne des causes desesperees, and born in Italy in 1381 Rita desired to become a nun, however, her parents insisted that she get married, which she did so at the young age of 12 to a man who was described as cruel and harsh.
Rita spent eighteen unhappy years in marriage until her husband was killed in a brawl and is recognised for her Christian values as a model wife and mother, and after becoming a widow, wanted still to become a nun, initially getting refused due to this and the fact she was not a virgin, however, eventually Rita was able to join an Augustinian community of sisters, gaining fame for her devotion to prayer and charity.
Rita of Cascia was canonized as a saint in the Roman Catholic church by Pope Leo XIII on 24th May 1900, two days after her death in 1457, and at her ceremony she was given a title of Patroness of Impossible Causes, although in some countries she is classed as the Patron Saint of abused wives and heartbroken women.
Unfortunately, we have been unable to find out who produced this statue of Saint Rita of Cascia, and the only information shown on a board inside the church reads;
Statue of Rita de Cascia, (1381 - 1457), whose intercession is sought in desperate cases. Feast on 22nd May.
Yet you will find this statue located within the Chapelle Saint-Nicolas within the Eglise Saint-Roch, which is located on the Rue Saint-Honore in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, in the same chapel as you can see a funerary monument dedicated to Pierre Mignard and his daughter Catherine.
