Novena To St. Monica # 2 (August 18 – August 27)

[Repeat the following prayer for 9 days in a row.]

Dear St. Monica,
you suffered heartache for years
over your children and husband
who despite your prayers
rejected the Christian faith.
Your patience and trust in the Lord
was repaid by the conversion of your husband
and the baptism of your three children.
As it would seem that your eldest son
was always to pursue a life of sin,
the fruits of your prayer were realized
when Your Son Augustine abandoned his prior ways
and chose a consecrated life.
As a mother I beseech you to help my family
and those of mothers across the world
who suffer such pain trying to raise their children
according to our Christian faith.
Please pray for peace to exist in our hearts and families.
Pray that a desire to pray will grow
in the hearts of our children
and a Love of Jesus and His Mother will burn within them.
As a loving Mother, St. Monica,
please carry our petitions to our Heavenly Mother Mary
and Her Son who both love us.

[Mention your intentions here…]

Amen.

Say 1 Hail Mary…

St. Monica,
please pray for our families!
