Saint MonicaThe next novena we will pray is to a very persistent intercessor!

In fact, this Saint prayed for her son’s conversion for more than 15 years. She wept and prayed constantly with faith and hope in God.

What was the result of all those years of prayer?

One of the great saints in the history of the Church!

We will be praying the Novena to St. Monica! 

St. Monica was St. Augustine’s mother and is a powerful advocate. The novena begins on August 18th! That’s just days away!

You can sign up to pray with us and the Pray More Novenas community of more than 204,000 people from all around the world here.
