Prayer of the Week:
The Gift of Motherhood
Dear St. Gerard, this December, as we enter this holy season of Advent, 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.
I invite you to visit our growing Facebook community, which has welcomed more than 1,500 new friends since the beginning of Lent.
In Christ our Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
