  6. The day that I started this novena, my son-in-law took my grand daughter to church. Up to now they have not been a religious or churchgoing family at all. I believe the last time she went to church was when she was baptized. Glory to God.

  7. August, especially since I begin praying Saint Monica’s novena, has turned into a time full of blessings for my family. My children or I had not seen my ex husband in 20 years when he left and filed for a divorce, moved out of the country and remarried.

    This summer, he reconnected with our children, their children and me. I asked him directing for an honest answer and he said he was comfortable with me being part of his vacation too. There was no blaming or shaming, just a real appreciation for one another.

    Today, I can see and feel the peace in our children, grandchildren and in me having spent time as a family. For the last twenty years, this is what I have been praying for. God has answered my prayers.

    Next year, will bring opportunities for our family to gather again. We will be celebrating a First Holy Communion and a High School Graduation.
    I thank God for His love and mercy.

    “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good: His mercy endures forever”. Psalm 118:29

  21. Hello

    I’d like to share and I can give testimony to have had an answer to all my prayers during this Novena. I prayed that my daughter would turn back to Jesus., recover from drug addiction and of her mental health. This week she has admitted to addiction and agreed to attend rehab program and she told me that she went to church with her group yesterday and enjoyed the sermon! God is sooo good. And St Monica is a blessed Saint!! I believe she intersected and all my prayers are answered! My daughter is I. The right care and I have faith that she will be cured soon!

  22. St.Monica, in this novena i asked for my daughter’s, my cousin’s and my own health.
    Also i ask for my daughter to be organized on her expenses
    Also asking for the people praying in this novena.

  25. During the St. Monica’s novena, I asked God to help my husband and daughter go to church on Sundays.

    It has been a struggle to get them both to the church.

    During the At Monica’s novena, I prayed that God help all my children especially my daughter to grow in their spiritual life. I prayed for my husband to grow spiritually as well.
