Saint Monica - Patron Saint of Troubled Wife and Mother

Dear Saint Monica, troubled wife and mother.

  Many sorrows pierced your heart during your lifetime yet you never despaired or lost faith.

Intercede for me dear Saint Monica that God may favourably hear my plea for

(Mention your intention here)

and grant me the grace to accept his will in all things through Jesus Christ Our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God for ever and ever.
