Thank you St. Gerard!!

Today is St. Gerard's Feast Day. He is the patron saint of expectant mother's. I'm so thankful for his intercession in the conception and birth of my 3 children. I think it's pretty wonderful that my youngest (and obviously my last) was born on his Feast Day. He is one of my favorite saints. For all of you who are praying for the blessing of children, ask St. Gerard to whisper into the ear of the Savior for you. There are many books and pamphlets explaining the life of St. Gerard. I pray you will be as touched as I was by learning more about him.

Very interesting post. I have learned of many Saints while living in Italy. He isn't one of them. I wish I had though during my journey to parenthood.
