'Authentic, Lasting Joy'

St. Monica

Blessed are you who fear the LORD,
who walk in his ways!

- Psalm 128:1

We may not all be mothers, as Monica was, but we all have had one. Our relationships with our mothers might be terrible or beautiful, or somewhere in an in-between place: bewildering, regretful and hopeful.

Desire lies at the heart of our mistakes and successes as parents, caretakers and children. Monica desired her son Augustine's salvation, and Augustine yearned for a love that would not die. Around and around they went.

What is it I desire for others? Is it that, above all, they find authentic, lasting joy?

Lord, may I be a help to others as we journey to you.

- Amy Welborn

St. Monica's love and desire for Augustine's salvation is the dream and hope of many. "Authentic,Lasting Joy" is my prayer for all our children. Lord, help me to live and show my joyful faith to others. Amen

Beautifully said, Amy. St. Monica is the model of perseverance -- never giving up on a child. She is also a patron saint of widows and a great ally.
