We believe Christ rose from the dead and that all who believe in him will rise with him. We are confident that Gerard Majella is a saint living in God’s eternal presence, where he never tires of working miracles and interceding for us, especially for mothers, mothers-to-be and those who desire to be mothers.
We recall the Latin inscription on his tombstone at Materdomini:
For the greater glory of God, Gerard Majella, a lay brother of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, whose simplicity of manner, brightness of innocence, contempt for all earthly things, the constant and implacable chastisement of the body, outstanding obedience and fragrant love of God, were so attested by wonders and gifts of grace that he seemed like a man of heaven or an angel on earth.
Born in Muro, 6 April 1726 and died October 16, 1755 at Materdomini.
