Happy Feast Day St. Monica!

Among all the saints in heaven, who knows the gut wrenching pain of a wayward child better than St. Monica? On this her feast day reach out to her and ask her to pray for your child, just as she did for Augustine. Next time you pray, offer a short request to St. Monica such as this:

St. Monica, I need your prayers. You know exactly how I’m feeling because you once felt it yourself. I’m hurting, hopeless, and in despair. I desperately want my child to return to Christ and his Church but I can’t do it alone. I need God’s help. Please join me in begging the Lord’s powerful grace to flow into my child’s life. Ask the Lord Jesus to soften his heart, prepare a path for his conversion, and activate the Holy Spirit and his life. Amen

Homily: Mt 16:13-20 St. Monica by Deacon Chris
