Monica, Mother of Augustine of Hippo, 387
Deepen our devotion, O Lord, and use us in accordance with your will, that inspired by the example of your servant Monica, we may bring others to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
The Lessons appointed for Monica are 1 Samuel 1:10–20, Psalm 115:12-18, and Luke 7:11-17. Monica brought her son, Augustine, to Christianity.
A perfect remembrance with Mother’s Day coming!
