Prayer of the Week:
PRAYER FOR SPECIAL BLESSINGS
Almighty and loving Father, I thank you for giving St. Gerard to us as a most appealing model and powerful friend. By his example, he showed us how to love and trust you. From heaven, you have allowed him to shower many blessings on those who call on him. For your greater glory and my welfare, please grant me the favors that I ask in his name (here each one may mention personal requests). And you, my powerful patron, who have always helped those who prayed to you, intercede for me before the throne of God. Prostrate yourself before that throne and do not leave it until you have been heard. O good St. Gerard, to you I confide my fervent prayers. Graciously accept them and let me experience in some way the effects of your powerful intercession. Amen.
Welcome, Friend of Saint Gerard!
In Christ our Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
