Monica, Mother of Augustine

Monica (332–387) is commemorated today, the day she entered into eternal glory in heaven. She was a godly woman who prayed fervently for her pagan son, Augustine. Augustine eventually was converted and became a giant among the church fathers. The Church is grateful for the blessings God has given through his faithful confession and spiritual care and we can also give thanks that his mom never gave up but continued to lift up her son to the mercy of God.
