St monica prayer to st augustine

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.

St Monica is the patron saint of a happy death. She was the mother of St Augustine, who was the bishop of Hippo Regius (now Annaba in Algeria). She devoted her life to prayer and penance, but was not rewarded with eternal life until she died at the age of 76 years old.

O gloriosa Domina nostra, S. Monica, memento nostri, miserere nostri et obtine nobis a Filio tuo misericordiam, ut inde digni efficiamur in praesenti saeculo et in futuro vita frui beatitudine. Amen.

If you’re looking for prayers in Spanish that address family protection, there are a few options. One is the prayer to St Michael, an archangel who was especially close to the Virgin Mary and has been invoked by Christians since the fourth century. The prayer says: “O gloriosa Domina nostra, S. Monica, memento nostri, miserere nostri et obtine nobis a Filio tuo misericordiam.” Translated from Latin into English, this means “O glorious Lady our Mother Saint Monica remember us have mercy on us and obtain for us from your Son pardon.”

Another option is to include St Michael’s Prayer in your daily routine; it can be recited before meals or at bedtime as well as during times of need (for example when someone is sick). This prayer gives thanks for God’s blessings while asking him to protect you from evil forces and ensure your health and happiness here on earth until you reach heaven after death.
