Like so many Catholics today -- even perhaps like you -- Monica wrestled daily with the pain of having a loved one fall away from the Faith. Like us, she often feared that her prayers and tears were of little worth, empty, futile.
Not so! After nearly two decades, Augustine returned to the Faith, and in a big way. Revered today as Saint Augustine, he joined in holiness his mother, Monica -- now Saint Monica -- whose sacrifices, prayers, and pain finally won for both of them the crown of sanctity.
In these pages, author Maggie Green provides wise, compassionate guidance for members of what she calls "The Saint Monica Club": good Catholics suffering like Monica the rejection of the Faith by persons they love dearly.
Herself a longtime and long-suffering member of the club, Green shows how persevering as Monica did in devoted love for straying souls -- loving them as God does -- will not only quiet the lingering, aching cry of our hearts, but will also draw our lost loved ones back to the Faith and into the arms of Jesus again. Yes, the non-confrontational Way of Saint Monica is hard. But it is the only way. These pages demonstrate that, with the souls of our loved ones at stake, it is worth the effort. . .and worth the wait.

Gifts of the Spirit
Gifts of the Spirit was founded in 1983 by Gladys and Mary Dieringer. When Natalie Duffy heard it was set to close, in September of 2018, she knew that our city couldn’t lose this little gem and has been operating it ever since, with her 6 little boys in tow. As of the March 2020 Covid shelter in order, she has been operating the shop remotely. In November 2020, we made the decision to permanently close the storefront, to accommodate digital learning in conjunction with meeting our customer’s needs.
We are happy to offer shipping and pick up options, as well as delivery to close in Portland, OR areas.We do special orders!
Although our physical storefront has closed, we offer contactless pickup and browsing from my covered porch in the SE Portland Vicinity not far from i205 and SE Powell Blvd.
