Description: Saint Monica is the Patron Saint of married women and mothers. She is a source of hope for those who despair over their loved ones who have left the Catholic Faith. This 3-page hand-out includes the Litany of St. Monica and a Novena of St. Monica. The tears of St. Monica and the golden words of St. Ambrose led to the conversion of her son, St. Augustine of Hippo. Who are you grieving for because of their lack of faith? Sorrow expressed in prayer is very valuable. There’s nothing wrong with getting emotional and pouring all our sadness upon God. Our tears shed for others are like precious diamonds for Jesus.
Ideas for use: Eucharistic Adoration, and parish ministries for wives and husbands, and mothers, fathers and grandparents who are struggling with their loved ones leaving the Catholic faith.
