    Dear St. Monica,
    You prayed and plead for your son relentlessly because you loved him and saw his worth and wished his life not be lived in superficial vanities. Please pray also for my friend Peter, a self-identifying atheist, who has so much worth to God but who refuses to see. He suffers much loneliness but his intellect will not let him embrace the ever-present comfort of God's grace. His name is no accident and he could be the rock upon which God builds a fortress of faith. Peter is worth it and certainly God does not love him any less than I do. Please join me in praying for him. Thank-you, Monica.

    I am new to the Church (I am attending RCIA) and I now know that I did not raise my son like I should have. He is a young man (29) and thinks he is an atheist. Please pray for my son that he will come to know God's love and Jesus' sacrifice. Thank you and God Bless.

    Dear St. Monica, you are the model of an faithful Christian mother, wife and daughter-in-law. Your unconditional love for your son, persistent prayers and undying hope led you to witness your famous son, Augutine's conversion. You are my role model, though I am very far in virtue from you. But, I have similar family situations in married life and children who are not close to Our beloved Saviour Jesus. I implore you on your feast day to pray particularly for all my three children to be faithful to Holy Mass and receive the Sacraments. More so that they raise my grand-children in God's holiness. These petitions are very important to me. Give me the perseverance in prayer which you so magnificently displayed. And at the same time, free me from frustration and impatience. May my life be one of service to God and neighbour. I ask for the gift of speech for Christian Ruiz. Help this young child overcome ALL his birth defects. I rely on you, St. Monica to answer my prayers. I ask these petitons in Jesus name. Amen.
