St. Gerard Patron Saint
of Expectant Mothers
The following prayers are recited by many pregnant women,
their families, and friends asking for the help of St.
Gerard Majella for a safe pregnancy, labor, and a healthy
baby. Wearing a St. Gerard charm or a St. Gerard necklace
is a reminder for all expectant mothers to put their
faith in the power and mercy of Jesus
Prayers to Saint Gerard
Dear Redemptorist Saint Gerard, model Priest and
Religious, compassionate toward suffering Mothers, intercede
for this expectant Mother. Let her not be selfish like
those who are willing to put an end to the life they
bear within themselves. Instead let her remain ever
conscious that she is privileged to be the instrument
through whom God brings another life into the world.
Encourage her for the good of her child and the glory
of the Lord of life. Amen.
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.
Novena to Saint Gerard
Blessed Trinity, I, Your child, thank You for all
the gifts and privileges which You granted to St. Gerard,
especially for those virtues with which You adorned
him on earth and the glory which You now impart to him
in heaven. Accomplish Your work, O Lord, so that Your
kingdom may come about the earth. Through his merits,
in union with those of Jesus and Mary, grant me the
grace for which I now ask...(mention your intention).
And you, my powerful intercessor, St. Gerard, always
so ready to help those who have recourse to you, pray
for me. Come before the throne of Divine Mercy and do
not leave without being heard. To you I confide this
important and urgent affair. Graciously take my cause
in hand, and do not let me end this novena without having
experienced in some way the effects of your intercession.
