Sunday, August 27, 2006Our model and patroness
Today is the feast day of St. Monica. A permanent link is located in this blog's sidebar. Suffice it to say that this woman is an excellent model for us who begin to despair that our prayers aren't heard. She put up with a lot from her husband before his deathbed conversion, and her live-in mother-in-law before her conversion. And then there's her son of course... St. Augustine, one of the greatest writers the Church has to boast.
