Prayer to st monica for mothers

opinion

I do not "Prayer to st monica for mothers" why I am still here, since I have no further hopes in this world. I did have one reason for wanting to live a little longer: God has lavished his gifts on me in that respect, for I know that you have even renounced earthly happiness to be his servant.

Inspire me to behave in ways that will not further distance my child from Christ, but only draw [Name] gently towards his marvelous light. Please teach me what you know about this painful mystery of separation, and how it is reconciled in the re-orientation of our children toward heaven.

O Saint Monica, lover of Christ and His Church, pray for me, and for my child [Name], that we may acquire heaven, joining with you, there, in offering constant and thankful praise to God, Amen.
