St. Monica (Monica of Hippo)

Outside of the Virgin Mary herself, perhaps no other mother had more influence on the Early Church than St. Monica. The mother of St. Augustine, one of the greatest theologians the Church has ever seen, Monica has been honored by the Roman Catholic Church for her devout Christian virtues and for her tireless devotion to her son, who wrote about her numerous pious acts as part of his famous book, “Confessions.” Christian legend claims St. Monica wept every night for her son and the “weeping” springs in Santa Monica, CA are named after her.
