St. Monica of Hippo c.331 - 387.
Born in Thagaste (now Algeria). She was a Christian given in marriage to
a pagan, Patricius. Despite her difficult home life Monica kept her
faith and continued to pray for her family. Both her husband and mother
in law eventually became Christians.
Monica is best known as mother to Augustine of Hippo who led a
profligate lifestyle to the dismay of his mother. Her example and
persistent prayer, together with the influence of St Ambrose of Milan,
eventually brought him to baptism. Augustine is honoured as one of the
great saints and teachers of the Church, the life of his mother is
recorded in his famous 'Confessions'.
They are celebrated close together as they
remained in life, St. Monica's feastday is 27th August the day before
St. Augustine's on 28th August.
