ST. MONICA: THE POWER OF A MOTHER'S LOVE
by Giovanni Falbo and translated by Matthew Sherry. Using extensive excerpts from the writings of St. Augustine, notably from his "Confessions," the author sheds new light on St. Monica's patience, sweetness, and unwavering determination. This mother never yielded in her efforts to see her beloved son find comfort and peace in God, and she endured countless sacrifices and health risks in her quest to help Augustine embrace the faith. St. Monica's quiet wisdom and courage, coupled with her earnest tears and prayers, bore fruit she could only have dreamed of! Paperback. 142 pages.
