Dear Friend of St. Gerard,

We remember our Mothers during May. As Redemptorists, we have a particularly special reverence for mothers because our ministries are under the protection of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Each year, we hold a Novena of Masses for Mother’s Day to all those who have shown motherly love and care.

Would you like to include your mother in our Masses for Mother’s Day? Please send me your mother’s name, as well as sisters, aunts, grandmas or anyone whom you have loved as a mother. I and my fellow Redemptorists will pray for them and place their names at the altar in our chapel at the provincial office.
In Christ the Redeemer,
Fr. Allan Weinert, C.Ss.R.
Redemptorists of the Denver Province

The Mother's Day Saint

Through St. Gerard Majella,
Mothers receive and bestow blessings

How did St. Gerard Majella come to be known as the Mothers’ Saint?

St. Gerard has a heavenly vocation as the special protector and intercessor for women trying to conceive, living through the months of pregnancy or at the time of delivery, in short, for all mothers of every kind and in every situation. It may seem a little odd that a male religious should be the Mothers’ Saint...

A Unique Gift

Mothers are one of
God’s first and most unique gifts.

My mother and your mother were specifically chosen for us by God. While I was growing up, I rarely took time to ponder his miraculous gift. I certainly did not value his gift in the midst of a scolding!

Did you ever feel your mom was a little too strict, or maybe her expectations for you were too high? As a child, I know I did. It was only once I moved out on my own that I realized my mom was exactly the right mom for me....

I just want to share in thanksgiving as St. Gerard's intercession is very powerful! Kathleen, who was on the Saint Gerard Prayer Flower, delivered a beautiful, healthy baby girl, naturally instead of by C-section! She was scheduled for C-section and went into labor the night before! Thanksgiving to St. Gerard’s intercession! All Glory to God!

Alexa Martinez

I just wanted to thank you for all your prayers and to update you about my situation. I finally got a positive pregnancy test this morning! All the prayers worked! Thank you so very much! Please continue to pray for me that I have a healthy pregnancy. Thank you!

Dear St. Gerard,
we ask your
special blessings
on all women
seeking to be mothers.

We ask that the love
of those couples
who seek
the fruit of the womb,
a child for whom
they can be good parents,
might be fertile ground
for new life.
