Saint Monica, August 27

Dearest Friends,

Some of you have written with your requests to be placed on the altar at Holy Mass on September 8, if you have not heard from us directly, please know that you are in our prayers and your intentions for both you and your husband will be remembered at this Mass. Anyone else that would like to be remembered, please let us know by writing the email on this site. We still have a little more time before it must be turned into the office. So, let us know…
“Nothing is far from God.” – Saint Monica
Feast Day – August 27th
Patron of Wives
Dear St. Monica, troubled wife and mother, many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime. Yet, you never despaired or lost faith. With confidence, persistence, and profound faith, you prayed daily for the conversion of your beloved husband, Patricius,and your beloved son, Augustine; your prayers were answered. Grant me that same fortitude, patience, and trust in the Lord. Intercede for me, dear St. Monica, that God may favorably hear my plea for (Mention your intention here.) and grant me the grace to accept His Will in all things, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
