Saint Monica was the mother of Saint Augustine who, for many years, did not act saintly at all. Augustine rebuked religion and turned instead to drinking, carousing, and traveling the world. Despite Augustine’s difficult temperament, his mother Monica never gave up on him. Eventually, through Saint Monica’s prayer and devotion, Augustine came to Christ. Mothers can invoke Saint Monica, patron of mothers and troubled children, when their kids are getting a little tough to handle, and Monica will guide toward better paths in life.
