    Hi Alice,
    Not that it does matter as I would hold such a Saint in high esteem, black or white, but all the pictures I have seen of her she is white. Note: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monica_of_Hippo

    I had lost my way from catholicism for a while, the past year or so I have been drawn back to it. I was researching St. Monica because when I was confirmed I had chosen her, but to be honest it was because I liked the name. Now, after reading this, I do not feel that it was a fluke, I know that it was chosen for me and now has a truly special place in my heart.

    Dear St. Monica, I thank you for all he past favors you have granted me. Every time I pray to you, I receive so many blessings.

    St. Monica, my birthday is fast approaching. My fervent prayer is that he will come back completely already. I hope St. Monica he will be sure of his feelings for me. I pray that he considers me too as a future partner. I pray too that we can spend one whole day together the weekend after my birthday. And that he will love me like he used to before. I love him so St. Monica, I wont cease praying for us to be completely ok again.

    Thanks so much St. Monica! I love you!

    Please pray for my wife and son St. Monica, for which on your feastday August 27th, my premature son Branden Matthew, died in my arms at 15 days old, and went to Heaven where my wife/his mother who passed away 15 days prior, was able to hold him for the first time. Thank you for your prayers. I love you Vida and Branden and miss you so much. God Bless You!

    Saint Monica pray for us all; pray, as thy prior prayers are now answered for your sons & daughters, that we may see unto the City of God; pray with my mother who oft prayed for me; pray for my father who also prays with thee; pray for Santa Monica thy namesake city by California sea, where waves weave one prayer to another to shores; pray for the surfers, pray for the cyclists, pray for the yogis who pray in the sun, pray for the swimmers, pray for the drummers, pray light, wind, moon and stars shine grace upon the sands; pray for all husbands, pray for all wives, pray for all praying & playing children laughing in all earthly lands; pray for the vision we earth beings lack, pray we regain it as Jesus comes back, Amen
