🌿 Saint Monica

🌿Blessed Lord, Saint Monica was the mother of Saint Augustine, and for many years prayed and cried and did penances for her son.  As a result, he became a Doctor of the Church and one of her greatest theologians.  She is the patron saint of alcoholics and children who disappoint their parents, so I ask her to pray for all those I know who are taking a long time finding a true relationship with You, especially those trapped by addictions.  I also ask her to pray for the parents; Lord, give us signs of hope.  And I offer up my sufferings as penances on behalf of those who most need Your forgiveness.  

Saint Monica, Pray for us.  Amen.
