St Monica - memorial

1 Thessalonians 2:1-8, Ps.139,
Matthew 23:23-26

To share God’s love is the greatest gift of all

St Monica never stopped praying for Augustine. Through tears she prayed unceasingly to God for his conversion. Her prayers were answered only a short time before she died. Through her faithful love the world gained the gift of Saint Augustine. St Paul’s mothering imagery describes his evangelising. He devotedly protects those he shares with, giving not only Good News, but his whole life. Jesus wants us all to be like Monica and Paul. How am I being invited to evangelise like that? It may be actions, words, prayer or a combination of them all. Ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
