Saints

St. Monica

Augustine would possibly not have become a saint had it not been for his mother, Monica. For many years, Monica prayed for her wayward son from the time he was a young boy and even as he grew up and turned to pagan religions. Her unceasing prayers and tears were rewarded when her son converted to Christianity and became a great man of God.
