St. Gerard Majella - In Thanks for a Safe Delivery

I truly believe that in MissyMoo3's birth, my prayers and those of my friends and family were answered. Things could have turned out so much worse, but didn't. This is the prayer I now need to pray, big time!

"Good St. Gerard, patron of mothers, assist me in thanking God for the great gift of motherhood. During the months of my waiting, I learned to call upon you and placed the safety of my child and myself under your powerful protection. The great lesson of your trust in God sustained me; your slogan 'God will provide,' became my hope and consolation. I thank God for a healthy and normal baby and my own good health. Help me to prize the great treasure of motherhood and obtain for me the grace to raise my child as a child of God.

In gratitude, I will continue to call upon you and will tell other mother about their special patron and friend. Amen."
