Though Augustine went far astray in his youth, he was brought back through the unceasing prayers of his mother. With this set, we see the fulfillment of a certain bishop's words to Saint Monica, "as sure as you live, it cannot be that the son of these tears should perish."
This icon set presents a reminder and a sign of hope for those who feel utterly helpless, especially those with wayward children and loved ones. In His perfect timing, Our Lord will always give an answer to our prayers. The icons are also available as a diptych in certain sizes, the icons being joined by a hinge so they can be opened like a book—ideal for travelers and for placement on shelves.
