Saint Monica, mother of St. Augustine is the Patron Saint of all married women. She is a good model for all wives and mothers. She unceasingly prayed for family.
Exemplary mother of the great Augustine, you perseveringly pursued your wayward son not with threats but with prayerful cries to heaven.
Intercede for all mothers in our day so that they may learn to draw their children to God. Teach them how to remain close to their children, even the prodigal sons and daughters who have sadly gone astray. Amen
