Description

St Gerard Majella, (6 April 1726 - 16 October 1755), is the patron of expectant mothers. He was born at Muro, Italy, in 1726 & joined the Redemptorists at the age of 23, becoming a professed lay brother in 1752. He served as sacristan, gardener, porter, infirmarian, & tailor. However, because of his great piety, extraordinary wisdom, & his gift of reading consciences, he was permitted to counsel communities of religious women. This humble servant of God also had the faculties of levitation & bi-location associated with certain mystics. His charity, obedience, & selfless service as well as his ceaseless mortification for Christ, made him the perfect model of lay brothers. He was afflicted with tuberculosis & died in 1755 at the age of twenty-nine. This great saint is invoked as a patron of expectant mothers as a result of a miracle effected through his prayers for a woman in labor. Patronage: Children, unborn children, women in childbirth, expectant mothers, motherhood, fertility issues, falsely accused people, good confessions, lay brothers & Muro, Lucano, Italy.
