Augustinian Prayers and Devotions

Intercessory Prayer to St. Monica

Faithful God,
light of all hearts, 
we praise you for St. Monica, 
woman of living faith and reconciling love.
She nursed her son, St. Augustine, 
in the name of Jesus, 
and urged him tirelessly to a Christian way of life. 

In answer to her prayers 
for St. Augustine’s conversion, 
you gave her greater joy than 
all hear tears had dared to ask.

Through the intercession of St. Monica,
we ask you to hear our prayers. 
As you once captivated the heart of St. Augustine, 
so now draw our hearts to you, 
beauty ever ancient, ever new. 

Saint Monica, pray for us!
