St. Monica

August 27: ST. MONICA. Patroness of Mothers, Married Women and Widowers


August 27: ST. MONICA. Patroness of Mothers, Married Women and Widowers Today we celebrate the memorial of St. Monica. She is the persistent, determined, patient and loving mother of St. Augustine who never threw the towel on her son’s waywardly life, who as we know was a great sinner but later got converted to the Catholic faith after passing through turbulent years of sincere search for the truth, until he finally found what his heart was looking for in the Catholic Church.
