Hi St. Monica and St. Augustine ~ Over Here!!!

St. Monica and St. Augustine, I know your feast days are side by side. I know today is St. Monica's day, but I always think of you as two for one. In a way it's true, you are two for One. Anyway, I just want to say thank you for your prayers. How many times have I begged you both to pray for my sons? I still do.

Jesus hears frequently from me too! He can thank you St. Monica for my persistence. I just tell Him, Lord I'm counting on You for these boys and all of us. I'm depending on You. I'm trusting You. Yes, Lord I'm expecting You to see us all safely home.

St. Monica you prayed for, cried for and followed your son ~ Augustine. Your prayers were rewarded in a magnificent manner. St. Augustine some where along the way, you allowed God to penetrate your intellect, will, heart and soul. Yes, I'm counting on our Lord, and I'm still depending on your prayers. Because that is what family is all about!

Thanks again for everything ~

I love you, Margaret

Beautiful personalized post! I couldn't decide whether to post them separately or together. It's hard to think of one and not the other.
They are both great intercessors!
Hugs & Blessings!

Lovely post. My grandmother - a holy woman - died on the Martyrdom of John the Baptist - just the day after St. Augustine. I always remember her on the Feast of St Monica, while praying the Common of Holy Women. I sort of put those three days together. I'll say a prayer for your sons.
