Novena to St. Zita
Patron of domestic workers and maids.
St. Zita inspire us to take pride in our daily work
and do it to the best of our abilities
out of Love for God.
May we find Jesus in the most menial of tasks.
May we always embrace a spirit of obedience
and charity as you did.
Pray for us St. Zita that we may have a generous heart
that gives even when we have little.
Place a trust in Jesus deep in our heart
that we may never experience despair or loss of hope.
Please carry the petitions we hold in our heart
to Jesus on our behalf.
Prayer to Saint Zita
Dear follower of the Son of God,
You desired to become a servant
And died the death of a slave.
You were not only a faithful maid-servant
But a practical lover of the poor.
Like Mary You could have said:
“Behold the handmaid of the Lord.”
Prompt domestics to be just and charitable,
Seeing in their employers children of God
And setting an example for them
as servants of God.
