St. Monica Novena

Saint MonicaSt. Monica is a very powerful intercessor for all those to go to her for help.

She was the mother of St. Augustine who is a Doctor of the Church and a highly revered Saint, philosopher and theologian. St. Monica prayed for her wayward son and pagan husband fervently throughout her life.

After 17 years of prayer, St. Augustine converted and eventually became the great Saint we know him as today.

The novena begins on August 18th.

Saint Monica Novena Prayers

Dear Saint Monica, you were once the mournful mother of a prodigal son. Your faithfulness to prayer brought you and your son so close to God that you are now with him in eternity. By your intercession and God’s grace, your son St. Augustine became a great and venerable Saint of the Church. Please take my request to God with the same fervor and persistence with which you prayed for your own son.

(Mention your intentions here)

With your needs, worries and anxieties, you threw yourself on the mercy and providence of God. Through sorrow and pain, you constantly devoted yourself to God. Pray for me that I might join you in such a deep faith in God’s goodness and mercy.

Above all, dear Saint Monica, pray for me that I may, like your son, turn from my sin and become a great saint for the glory of God.

St. Monica is the Patron Saint of…

Alcoholics
Married women

Wives

  1. Dear Saint Monica

    My husband is thinking of divorcing me after 25 years of marriage. He is involved with a 19 year old and says he does not love me anymore. We have two beautiful children who hate him now for what he has done and also want me to leave him. I take my vows very seriously and would still like to make it work. He has said that at the end of this School year,he will divorce me. His sister tried talking to him but he is so cold and told her he does not want to talk about it. I am so unhappy and I cry a lot and it is not good for my children to see me this way. Also, I am totally dependent on him and would be out on the streets if he left me. I am desperately trying to get a job. Please pray that I get a job and am able to support myself if he leaves me. Please please I need a miracle.

  11. Please St. Monica pray for my daughter-in-law Ariel who says she was never baptized.Pray that her heart and soul will experience a conversion. Pray that her eyes and ears will be open to a loving Heavenly Father. She says she does not believe but she is allowing her daughter to be Baptized on January 22nd 2017. At this point in time only my Son Jared will be standing by our grandaughters side to speak on her behalf in raising her Catholic. My prayer is that a miracle will take place through St. Monicas intercessory prayer that Ariel will stand by her husband side acknowledging that she too will help guide Eden in her faith. They also need prayers for their marriage which has gone through some rocky times.
