Prayer of the Week (Mar 2, 2015):
PRAYER FOR THE GIFT OF MOTHERHOOD
Dear St. Gerard, on this first week of March we want to thank you for the gift of motherhood that you have obtained for so many women. We ask you to obtain the grace to conceive for those couples who long to have a baby but are having trouble conceiving. We ask your special blessing on all women seeking motherhood or awaiting the birth of their child, especially those who may be having any complications or difficulties in their pregnancy. We ask you to watch over all life developing in the womb, may these lives be loved, cherished, nourished, cared for with profound respect and come safely to see the light of day. Amen.
Welcome, Friend of Saint Gerard!
In Christ our Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
