Parents - St. Monica
Being a parent is one of the most beautiful gifts in life. Yet, along with joy can come heartache and anxiety. No mother can appreciate this more than St. Monica, whose own son St. Augustine lost his way as a young man. Her enduring patience, love, and compassion brought him back to her, leading him to become a beloved Doctor of the Church. Call on St. Monica, who will surely appreciate the ups and downs of being a mom and dad, even in 2020!
