Feast of St. Monica

St. Monica
Patroness of Mothers and Widows

St. Monica is remembered as an example of patience and perserverance in prayer. Through her constant prayer, her pagan husband became a Christian before his death, and her son, St. Augustine, became one of the greatest saints of the Church.

When this holy card was produced her feast day must have been May 4th (the printers published that on the left side of the card) but now, it is celebrated on August 27th.
