Prayer to St. Monica, Patroness of Mothers
Blessed Monica, mother of St. Augustine,
we give thanks to our Father in Heaven
Who looked with mercy upon your tears
over your wayward son.
His conversion and heroic sanctification
were the fruit of your prayers.
Dear St. Monica
we now ask you to pray with us
for all those sons and daughters that have wandered away from God,
and to add your prayers to those of all mothers
who are worried over their children.
Pray also for us that,
following your example, we may,
in the company of our children,
one day enjoy the eternal vision of our Father in Heaven.
Heavenly Saints is a Roman Catholic Lay Apostolate for the Saints inspired by our Blessed Mother Mary, and under her patronage as Our Mother of Good Counsel, together with Saint John Neumann, Saint Rita of Cascia and Saint Damien deVeuster of Molokai.

Heavenly Saints are the absolute best to work with. Octavio and Chris, two brothers hand make these statues and are simply wonderful to work with. I ordered the statue, Octavio said it would be here before Christmas, and it arrived on December 21st. I had it made for my wife as we have two children out of seven who have left the Catholic Faith and St. Monica is the Patron Saint of Conversions. If I could show you the photo of my wife opening the gift on Christmas morning I would. It was the most perfect gift and she absolutely loves it! And, you know what? The statue is MUCH MORE BEAUTIFUL in person than in the photos. The attention to the hand-painted detail is second to none. It has definitely become an instant heriloom in our family. Thank you, Octavio and Chris, and I look forward to my next order! Peace, Jay
