The Feasts of St. Monica and St. Augustine teach us, among other things, that we must pray persistently for conversion among ourselves and others. St. Monica is known for her persistent prayer for the conversion of St. Augustine, and St. Augustine, once he was converted, prayed persistently and consistently for the rest of his life. If we are praying for our own conversion or the conversion of someone else, we can use these to saints as models of persistence. Keep on keeping on with the prayer and, someday, the conversion will come.
