By Mike Aquilina and Mark W. Sullivan
For nearly two decades, Saint Monica prayed for her wayward son--prayers that were seemingly unanswered. Countless tears shed with no relief, yet she never gave up. That very act of persistent prayer blessed the entire Church, for we have all benefitted from the conversion of her son, Augustine, who became one of the most revered saints of all time.
Parents of any age or at any stage can cultivate the same virtues in prayer that Saint Monica discovered during her long wait for God's answer for her child. This devotion includes 18 contemporary reflections, meditations taken from the writings of Saint Augustine, and prayers adapted from the liturgy and other ancient sources.
