St. Monica (August 27th )
Patron of: the conversion of relatives, difficult marriages, disappointing children, victims of unfaithfulness
"Nothing is far from God"
St. Monica of Hippo is well known because of her very famous son, St. Augustine of Hippo. St. Augustine wrote some of the most well known pieces of Christian literature, but there was a time in his life when he wasn't a Christian. It was through the intercessory prayer of his mother (as well as her good example and continued presence in his life) that he returned to the Christian faith. While he had never been baptized as a baby, because his pagan father would not allow it, St. Monica had planted the seeds of Christianity in his heart from birth.
St. Monica even followed St. Augustine from city to city to try to keep him from ruining his life with sin! Her tireless prayers and loving example ended up converting her pagan husband, Patricius, a year before his death. She also converted her mother-in-law (who had been unkind to her for many years!). St. Monica is an amazing example of never giving up hope.
