Prayer of the Month

O Holy Saint Monica,

the Lord taught you to persevere for the good of your family, and I ask you to hear my prayers. Help me to be a good parent to my children and wife to my husband. Help me to have patience with them and give me the strength to guide them to the right path. Help me to always forgive and be a model of goodness as you were.

Grant me your same enduring and unwavering faith and trust in the Lord. Intercede for me, dear St. Monica, that God may listen to the sorrows and favorably hear my plea for (mention intervention), and bless me with the grace to embrace His will in all things.

Amen.
