Prayer to Saint Monica
Exemplary Mother of the great Augustine, you perseveringly pursued your wayward son not with wild threats but with prayerful cries to heaven. Intercede for all mothers in our day so that they may learn to draw their children to God. Teach them how to remain close to their children, even the prodigal sons and daughters who have sadly gone astray. Amen.
I created this bracelet in honor of St. Monica with bright colors, using yellow glass pearls and glass lampwork beads and using several Catholic Medals including St. Benedict, Madonna of the Streets, Pieta, Archangel St. Gabriel and others.
