Rachel Rifat's goal in life was to perform great deeds through art.
She suffered many years in catholic school where the nuns and priests found her quite displeasing. The nuns could never understand why a young girl would only choose to read from Revelations. She was not allowed to return to several parishes after her series of debates with the priests.
Her great works were publicized and written about by People Magazine, Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times. She feels she owes it to the kind prayers of the sisters in Santa Barbara.
She is the aspiring patron saint of murals, painting, and illustration.
