By Falbo, Giovanni (Author)
$23.95 AUD

About this Book:

Using extensive excerpts from the writings of St. Augustine, notable from his Confessions, Giovanni Falbo 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. Monica's quiet wisdom and courage, coupled with her earnest tears and prayers to God, bore fruit she could only have dreamed of.

St. Augustine's words bring St. Monica to life and show her to be a mother who wanted the very best for her son. Falbo has created a biography filled with captivating story-telling elements that pull the reader into Monica's life, offering a rare look into the heart of a deeply caring, profound woman of God.

"Monica is a shining example for families today, bringing them courage and hope by guaranteeing that with the grace of God, good will, perseverance, any difficulty can be overcome in building a true Christian family founded upon the values of the Gospel."

-Giovanni Falbo
