Help from the Saints
St. Gerard Majella
Patron of expectant mothers and unborn children
Prayer for the intercession of St. Gerard
Dear Redemptorist Saint, model Priest and Religious, compassionate toward suffering mothers, intercede for all expectant mothers. Let them not be willing to put an end to the life they bear within themselves. Instead let them remain ever conscious that they are privileged to be the instrument through whom God brings another life into the world. Encourage them for the good of their child and the glory of the Lord of life. Ask that the Lord provide them what they need and to dispel any fear they may have.
Lord, If it is the your will let the child have a healthy period of growth, a safe delivery, and be brought up by a loving family whom you have already picked just for them.
Sts. Perpetua and Felicity
Patrons of mothers
