Born in modern day Algeria, St. Monica was married off at an early age to an abusive pagan husband. Together, they bore three sons, one of which was to become St. Augustine of Hippo. However, Augustine was not always the faithful Catholic we now see him as. Both he and Monica’s husband caused her immense strife and she spent most of her life praying for them. After incredible patience her prayers were answered and they both joined the Church.
This sock design pays homage to St. Monica’s heritage by replicating the colors and patterns of traditional Algerian textiles while also paying tribute to her faith. You will also see IHS incorporated throughout to represent her faith and connection to Christ.
