 Our Description

This lovely St. Monica holy card shows St. Monica holding journal, quill and staff of St. Augustine.  On the back of the card is a prayer to St. Monica:

Oh Glorious St. Monica, through prayerful cries to heaven you were successful in bringing your son, Augustine, back to the faith.  Intercede for all mothers so that they may learn to draw their children to God.  Teach them how to remain close to their children, even those who have gone astray.  Amen.
