Santa Rita de Casia, patroness saint of impossible causes, marital problems, abuse and mothers, is almost always depicted as she is here, with a spot of blood and a thorn deeply imbedded in her forehead. According to popular belief, in the year of 1441, during a sermon on the crown of thorns, Santa Rita prayed so intently that a thorn detached itself from her crucifix and lodged itself in her forehead. Her wound became so offensive that she spent the better part of her life in total isolation. She is shown here with her two sons whom allegedly avenged her death.
This retablo is attributed to Agustin Barajas - the so called 'Skimpy Painter.' His unique painterly style is unmistakable.
