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
Mothers
Wives
Difficult Marriages

  2. Dear St. Monica,

    Please intercede for my brother to have the grace to give up his addiction to alcohol and nicotine. He has been without a job for the past three years and has been drinking heavily.

  3. I pray for my boyfriend and his family as they are not believers…they are very good people but had bad experience in school with the Nuns so turned against religion. I pray for grace that they will be saved. I pray for myself as I live with my boyfriend and we have no intention of marriage…we have both been married and divorced. I pray for my kids and my family.
    I seen Jesus and experienced evil. I was in ICU & not expected to survive. I had these dark shadows sweeping at me and I felt the evil…was terrified. I prayed and Jesus came…I kept blinking cause I thought I was seeing things. He was in brilliant light and rest of room was not. he stared at the dark shadows and they went into a circle and smaller until disappeared. He stayed about 3-4 secs longer and then gone. I felt peace after that and knew I would get better. They removed the breathing tube shortly after that and I steadily got better. I thank God for saving me.

  4. Dearest St Monica pray fo my son Chad,take this to God to give my son Chad the strength he needs to fight overcome his drug addiction,give him strength,pray for him to live a happy loving life to guide him to get a job and housing.I love my son Chad
