- 2.5" by 4.5" prayer card
- Touching image of Sts. Monica and Augustine
- Offer your intentions for your family in union with St. Monica’s intercession
This image beautifully depicts the story of St. Monica and her formerly wayward son, St. Augustine. Though he stares sullenly towards heaven, Monica gazes trustingly as she holds his hand in hers, representing how her ceaseless prayers and tears for his sake led to his eventual conversion. Plead for her intercession for your own intentions, especially those related to familial difficulties.
The prayer reads: Dear St. Monica, troubled wife and mother, many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime. Yet, you never despaired or lost faith. With confidence, persistence, and profound faith, you prayed daily for the conversion of your beloved husband, Patricius, and your beloved son, Augustine; and your prayers were answered. Grant me that same fortitude, patience, and trust in the Lord. Intercede for me, dear St. Monica, that God may favorably hear my plea for (mention intention) and grant me the grace to accept His Will in all things. Amen.
