I have no rest til I rest in thee

I was excited for St. Monica's feast day yesterday.  She's a great reminder for me to never stop praying for our children to return to the faith.  St. Augustine her son....a great sinner yet a great saint... teaches us that there is always hope for us to return to the Church.  He quoted...'Lord make me good but not yet.'  I laugh to myself every time I'm reminded of him saying that.  Later he say's... 'Lord I have no rest til I rest in thee.'  Thank goodness for his mother praying relentlessly for his conversion.  He's one of the four doctor's of the Church.  St. Augustine pray for us.
