St. Gerard Prayer

Prayer to St. Gerard

Prayer for Motherhood

O good St. Gerard, powerful
intercessor before God and
Wonder-worker of our day, I
call upon thee and seek thy
aid.  Thou who on earth didst
always fulfill God's design
help me to do the Holy Will of
God.  Beseech the Master of
Life, from whom all paternity
proceedeth to render me
fruitful in offspring, that I may
raise up children to God in
this life and heirs to the
Kingdom of His glory in the
world to come.  Amen.

Dear Mother Mary, speak to
Jesus for me.

Story of St. Gerard

St. Gerard
Patron of Expectant Mothers

In 1725, Gerard Majella was born as the son of a tailor in Muro, Italy.  Gerard's father died when he was 12 years old, which left the family in poverty.  Gerard was apprenticed to a tailor who was very unkind.  Gerard attempted to join the Capuchin Monastery, but his poor health prevented him from joining the monastery.  So Gerard was accepted as a lay brother who served his Order as a tailor, infirmarian, gardener and porter.

During his laymanhsip, Gerard was accused by a woman as bing the father of her unborn child.  Because of this accusation, Gerard retreated into silence until the woman later cleared him of the accusation.  This incident led to Gerard becoming associated with pregnancies and childbirth.  He has becaom associated with the pro-life movement and good will toward unborn children.  Gerard died of tuberculosis in 1755.  He left a note on the door of his room that read, "here the will of God is done, as God will, and as long as God wills."  Gerard was canonized in 1904.
