Saint Monica of Hippo (c. 332 – 387), was the mother of Saint Augustine of Hippo, one of the most influential theologians in Christian history. Monica was known for her deep Christian faith and fervent prayers for the conversion of her wayward son. She endured many trials, including her husband’s infidelity and Augustine’s rebellious lifestyle, but never lost hope in God’s mercy. Monica’s persistent prayers and patient love eventually led to Augustine’s conversion to Christianity. Saint Monica is venerated as the patron saint of mothers, wives, and those who seek the conversion of loved ones. She is remembered as a model of Christian perseverance and intercession.
