Feast of St. Monica

For all those mothers out there who have struggled with wayward children, today’s feast gives hope, as St. Monica prayed and prayed for the conversion of her son, only to have it happen just before her death.  Her tears and sacrifices lead to the conversion of one of the greatest saints in Church History.  So, for all those mothers whose sons have gone off the deep end, don’t give up!

As Vocation Director, I know (even from my personal life) the influence that a mother has on her children, there is an inescapable bond between mother and child.  On this patron of mothers, help your children to follow the path that God has set before them.
