Each May, we celebrate both our Blessed Mother and our earthly mothers in special ways. St. Gerard’s special compassion for mothers is recognized throughout the world. Millions of children have been named after Gerard by parents who are convinced that his intercession helped them conceive and give birth to new life.
In this issue of The League of St. Gerard enewsletter, we give thanks for Mary and for all mothers. We explain the Catholic tradition of asking saints, such as Our Blessed Mother and Saint Gerard, to intercede for us. We present some of the moving testimonials posted on our Facebook page by women and men who have been encouraged or helped by Saint Gerard’s intercession.
Saint Gerard is known throughout the world as a mighty intercessor for young women and mothers, especially women who are trying to conceive, have difficult pregnancies, have faced pregnancy loss, or have other special needs or prayer requests for their families.
