Prayer to Saint Monica

We believe in the communion of Saints.  And we ask for the intercessions of Saint Monica for the mission of reaching to our away sisters and brothers.

St Monica,

Exemplary Mother of the great Augustine,

You pursued your wayward son with prayerful cries to heaven;

his saintly conversion is the fruit of your tears.

Inspired by your persistence and profound faith,

may my life become a testimony for Christ

to welcome back those who have wandered away from God.

Intercede for me here at Landings

as I ask you to pray us always-returning Catholics

(pause to recall names here)

Grant me the same fortitude, patience and trust in the Lord that you possess in journeying with them,

and obtain for me as perfect a conversion as you were able to obtain for your son.

In all that I say and do, may I always be guided by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
