majella3Prayer to St Gerard

 

St Gerard, passionate lover of Jesus crucified and his mother Mary, you spent your short life helping countless souls by your powerful prayers, especially mothers and families and so earning the title of "The Mothers' Saint". Pray for me that I may obtain what I earnestly ask in the name of Jesus and grant me the grace to accept wholeheartedly God's will in my life.

 

An Alternate prayer to St Gerard

 

St Gerard, during your life you extended your help to the unfortunate and poor around you. Help me in my present need. Give me insight to recognise the presence of Jesus in the sufferings and troubles of others. Let not my urgent need for help cause me to think only of myself. Following your example, uniting my prayers and sufferings with Jesus on the cross, may I be transformed into a person of love and compassion. St Gerard, pray for me. Amen
