When I was hungry, you gave me to eat;
when I was thirsty you gave me to drink.
Whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren, you do it to Me.
Come and enter the house of My Father.
When I was a stranger, you opened your doors;
when I was naked, you gave me clothes.
When I was tired, you gave me peace;
when I was frightened, you calmed me down.
When I was small, you taught me to read;
when I was lonely, you gave me your love.
I was in prison, you visited me;
WhenI was sick and you took care of me.
In a strange country, you gave me a home;
when I had no job, you found me one.
When I was wounded, you took care of it;
looking for friendship, you gave me your hand.
Whether I was black, or white or yellow;
mocked at or insulted, you carried my cross.
When I was old, you smiled at me;
when I couldn't find peace, you brought it to me.
You saw me: full of spit and blood;
dirty with sweat, still you said you knew me.
You were on My side in times of despise;
in the hour of joy, we were together.
St. Gerard, who, like the Saviour,
loved children so tenderly
and by your prayers freed many from disease and even death,
listen to us who are pleading for our sick child.
We thank God for the great gift of our son/daughter
and ask Him to restore our child to health
if such be His holy will. ... continue reading
