    St. Gerard, I want to give thanks to you, especially on this date of your canonization. My daughter was forty years old when she conceived. We thought she could not have children as she was trying for many years. I thank you for the beautiful granddaughter you have given me and please guide her parents, my wife and myself to raise her right in the eyes of God. Thank you Jesus and Mary.

    Please bless all the mothers who want to conceive and who are also with child. Thank you.

    Dear St.Gerard

    please bless and watch over my son and his pregnant girlfriend, they are only 17 and 18years of age but are expecting identical twin boys. the doctors say they may need to split the placenta to give both babies a fighting chance of survival so please watch over them all and let everything go well. I dearly want to meet my grandsons in 2014. So through the grace of God please help make it so.

    Eternally grateful, Colette
