Thessalonians 5:16-18

   

               
 

 


St. Monica is a very powerful intercessor
for all those to go to her for help.

She was the mother of St. Augustine 
who is a Doctor of the Church and a highly revered Saint,
philosopher and theologian.
St. Monica prayed for her wayward son
and pagan husband fervently throughout her life.

After 17 years of prayer, St. Augustine converted
and eventually became the great Saint we know him as today.

The novena begins on August 18th.

Thank you for praying the St. Monica Novena with us! 

We hope this novena has renewed your faith, trust and hope in the Lord! 

Now, we would like to close this novena with our final prayer.
Now, Let us pray...

Dear Lord Jesus,
I have specific requests that may only partially fill
the infinite needs and desires that are in my heart.
I ask that You answer me not only
for those requests but also for a greater reliance
on You to satisfy the needs and desires that You have given me. 

Please grant the prayers of all those who prayed this novena
with me. Bless them with Your love and make them holy!

May I seek You with a sincere heart knowing
that it will profit me nothing if I gain
the whole world yet lose my soul. 

So, help me to see Your good
and gracious purpose in all my trials.
Help me to see Your blessings in every day
and help me to love You more. 

Thank You for everything, Lord Jesus! 

Amen.
