My favourite Monica

Catholics celebrate today Saint Monica. Mother of Saint Augustin, she prayed for her son to convert to Christianity. He eventually did become a Christian.
And she did more than that: that is why now she is the patron saint of married women, abuse victims, alcoholics, alcoholism, difficult marriages, disappointing children, homemakers, housewives, married women, mothers, victims of adultery, victims of unfaithfulness, victims of verbal abuse, widows, and wives.

she is my favourite Monica, and I am happy to have her name.

I only wish one day I will celebrate 27th of August in a sunny town over the Ocean:
