Saint of the Day
St. Monica (322-387)
A Christian from birth, Monica was given in marriage to a bad-tempered, adulterous pagan. Once an alcoholic herself, she prayed constantly for the conversion of her husband and her son, St. Augustine. Both of them eventually converted.
Reflections from the Saints
Bury my body wherever you will; let not care of it cause you any concern. One thing only I ask you, that you remember me at the altar of the Lord wherever you may be.
– St. Monica
