I’ve seen her on the subway, shopping at Key Food, nibbling on french fries at McDonald’s, her mind clearly on something else. I imagine you’ve seen her, too.
Keep her in your prayers. These are tough times to be a kid. And tough times to be a mother.
St. Monica, on this your feast day, pray for us, and for all our children.
