Absolutely loved it. If we could learn to love, pray and accept as St Monica did. Demonstrates how powerful our actions are. We are what we say and do.
Love is said to be an act of the will. St. Monica models love for God, spouse and family with true act of selfless love.
Life Of Sainy Monica
This was very inspiring as i am blessed to be a mother of a seminarian. The love she shared with St. Augustine is one every mother should pray for so we too may share in Gods glory. Our children are gifts from God and we must not lose sight of Gods will for our children.
