Today the Roman Catholic Church celebrates the memorial of St. Monica – my go-to saint for encouragement and intercession for issues that require patience and long endurance.
Here’s what I wrote about her for National Catholic Register:
“It was in learning about St. Monica’s life that I understood that a Mommy Heart never shuts down, and that’s OK. Her concern for St. Augustine didn’t end when he turned 18. In fact, it didn’t end when he turned 29 and took off to Rome. Nor did it end after his conversion in his early 30s. She not only worried about him; she followed him from Tagaste to Rome, and on to Milan.”
