Saint of the Day Quote: Saint Monica

Here the most virtuous mother of a young man set her ashes, a second light to your merits, Augustine. As a priest, serving the heavenly laws of peace, you taught [or, you teach] the people entrusted to you with your character. A glory greater than the praise of your accomplishments crowns you both – Mother of the Virtues, more fortunate because of her offspring.

Epitaph of Saint Monica, mother of Saint Augustine, written by Anicius Auchenius Bassus, Consul of Rome in 408
