Feast of St Monica


St Monica was the mother of St Augustine, and is famous for her prayers and other efforts towards his conversion.  As such, she is patroness, amongst other things of those who have disappointing children, an all too common affliction!

St. Monica is the Saints name I took for confirmation.

Thanks for the reminder that it is her feast day.
