Sainted mother of Augustine the sinner,
the Lord Jesus mercifully regarded your tears.
The conversion of your son to a genuinely holy life
was the fruit of your prayers.
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.
