St Monica, the mother of Augustine, our Lord Jesus mercifully answered your tears. The fruit of your prayers was the conversion of your son to a genuinely holy life.
From the heights of your heavenly home, happy mother of your saintly son, pray for those who wander far from God and add your prayers to those of all parents who sorrow over the straying souls of their sons or daughters.
Pray for us that, following your example and that of all God’s children, we may at length enjoy the eternal vision of our Father in Heaven. Amen.
