St. Monica Intercede for Us

Columban Daily Prayer
August 27, 2023

Dear Saint Monica,
once the sorrowing mother of a wayward son,
please present our petition to the Lord God
of heaven and earth.
Look down upon our anxieties and needs,
and intercede for us, as you did so fervently
for Augustine, your son.

We have full confidence that your prayers
will gain a favorable hearing in heaven.
Mother of a sinner-turned-saint;
obtain for us patience, perseverance,
and total trust in God’s perfect timing.
In His appointed hour, in His merciful way,
may He respond to your prayer and ours,
which we offer through you.
