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.

Verse on the back:
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 laymanship, Gerard was accused by
a woman as being 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
become associated with the pro-life movement and
good will towards unborn children. Gerard died of
tuberculosis in 1755. He left a note on the door of his
room that read, "Hear the will of God is done, as God
wills, and as long as God wills." Gerard was canonized
in 1904.
