St. Monica

Saint Monica (c. 332 – 387) was an early North African Christian saint and the mother of St. Augustine of Hippo. She is remembered and honored in the Catholic Church for her outstanding Christian virtues, particularly the suffering caused by her husband's adultery, and her prayerful life dedicated to the reformation of her son, who wrote extensively of her pious acts and life with her in his Confessions. Popular Christian legends recall Saint Monica weeping every night for her son Augustine.
