Oil Dedicated to St Monica 7 (Patron for Disappointing Children)
St Monica 7 (Patron for Disappointing Children) from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.
Saint Monica is a well-known Christian saint who was born in 332 AD in Tagaste, North Africa. Her parents, although they were Christian, did not provide her with a strong religious education. Despite this, Monica developed a deep faith in God at a young age and remained devout throughout her life.
Monica was married to a pagan man named Patricius, who was unfaithful to her and had a violent temper. Despite this, Monica remained committed to her marriage and devoted herself to praying for her husband’s conversion. Her prayers were eventually answered, and Patricius converted to Christianity shortly before his death.
Monica had three children: Augustine, Navigius, and Perpetua. Her most famous child, Augustine, initially rejected Christianity and lived a life of immorality and philosophical skepticism. Monica never gave up hope for her son’s conversion and prayed for him daily. Augustine eventually converted to Christianity and became one of the most influential theologians in the history of the church.
Throughout her life, Monica was known for her selflessness and her willingness to help those in need. She often provided assistance to the poor and sick, and she used her wealth to support the church and its mission. She also known for her deep prayer life and her strong devotion to God.
Monica died in 387 AD in Ostia, Italy, while traveling with Augustine. She canonized by the Catholic Church, and her feast day celebrated on August 27th. She remembered as a model of faith, perseverance, and selflessness, and she revered as the patron saint of mothers, wives, and abuse victims.
Overall, St. Monica’s life is a testament to the power of prayer, the importance of faith, and the strength of a mother’s love. Her story serves as an inspiration to Christians around the world, reminding us of the importance of perseverance in the face of adversity and the transformative power of God’s love.
