Due to the writing of Augustine of Hippo, the son of St. Monica, titled "Confessions" we have information about St. Monica's life. St. Monica is described as a good mother, she was married and had three sons: Augustine, Navigius and Perpetua. The husband of Monica, Patritius, was a violent pagan, who held an official position in Tagaste (present-day Algeria). With Christian endurance and through her exemplary life, St. Monica was able to convert her husband and so he was baptised just before his death. As a widow St. Monica became a nun, but her worries did not end, her son Augustine was wayward, lazy and irreligious. St. Monica prayed for him and when he ran away to Rome and Milan she followed him and so she was present at his christening. Monica's family decided to go back to Africa, but in 397 a.D., before the departure, St. Monica died in Ostia because of her high fever.
