St. Gerard Majella Comments

St. Gerard Majella, religious, is the patron of expectant mothers. He was born at Muro, Italy, in 1726 and joined the Redemptorists at the age of 23, becoming a professed lay brother in 1752.

    Please join me in praying for a very special couple, Sara and Diego for a speedy recovery in the problems that have arisen tonight in the 16th week of her pregnancy, which has left her in the hospital over night for observation. They would make amazing parents lord and through the intersession of St. Gerard Majella I beg you to turn this whole situation around so that they will be blessed in the coming months with the birth of a beautiful precious little baby. Amen

    After finishing a 9 day novena to St. Gerard yesterday, we experienced that St. Gerard was watching over my baby. My baby was diagnosed with having heart disease. We prayed and prayed for Jesus to heal my baby and make her normal and healthy. Well I had a 3D/4D ultrasound on Monday and received a print out of the baby. She looks so beautiful and innocent. I made copies of the ultrasound for my mom, grandmother and aunt. After mass yesterday my mom and grandmother were praying for the baby and they noticed on the Ultrasound a picture of a man's face on the side of my baby. It was the image of St. Gerard we noticed, after doing a side by side comparison. There was also a image of a cross on her face. We noticed another image on the baby's arm of either the Virgin Mary with her crown or the Infant Jesus of Pargue with his crown. But we did see an outline of red around the image thinking its the Infant jesus with his red cape. We are grateful and thankful to experience these images and see them around and on the baby. My Aunt called the parish secretary to have a mass said for my baby and the secretary could not find any avavilability. She said that she would call her back. Well later that day the secreatary called back and asked if Oct 16 would be ok. My Aunt said OK and later realized that Oct 16 is the feast day of St. Gerard. What a miracle we thought. We are still shocked and amazed the way God is working. Everyone should remain faithful to the Lord, Mother Mary and our Saints they truly hear prayers. God Bless all the expectant Mothers.

    St. Gerard - please keep safe my dear friend Jennifer and her unborn daughter Ella through these last days of her pregnancy. She has waited for this child for so long, and has suffered so many disappointments - please let this be one of the most joyful times of her and her husband Brian's life. Give her strength during her delivery, and help Ella to come into this world safely.
