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.
