    Dear Saint Gerard,
    My husband and I have suffered two miscarriages in the past 9 months. We are now pregnant for the third time. I am 39 and this will be my first born child if God blesses us with his/her birth. I waited many years to find the person God chose for my husband and we long to give birth to a child that is the symbol of our love. Please protect the precious child within my womb and bless us with a healthy pregnancy and a healthy child who is born without complications or abnormailities at full term. In Jesus name I pray. AMEN!.

    Dear st. Gerard,
    My husband and I have been trying to conceive for over five years for our first baby. We started napro almost 2 years ago and I had surgery last year to open my tubes and decrease endometriosis. We visited your shrine on our anniversary and feast day October 16th. We have been praying to you about two years. All hormones and tests are coming back fine.our age (im 43) and job stress works against us. I believe you hear my prayers and have faith you will intercede for us. God had put such a strong desire to have a baby in me. If it its his will, we ask in his name for baby Jeffrey Gerard to arrive soon 2013.please help us. Intercede for us to Jesus, blessed mother Mary, Amen

    First I want to give the glory and honor to Jesus for all he has done. St. Gerard has been there for me and my baby since the moment she was concieved. During my pregancy I found out that my baby girl would be born with a heart defect. St. Gerard helped me along the way to cope with this situation. He would always send me a sign that he was there with me and my baby through dreams or he would reveal himself in her ultrasounds. One of the pictures was verifed by a St Gerard parish in NJ. She was born without any complications, but still needed the surgey. She had 3 open heart surgeries. My family and I Prayed and prayed to St Gerard and he never left our side. Our little miracle baby has progressed soooo much and she is doing really well. Outside looking in you would never know what she has been through. God is awesome!!! Our baby girl is a walking testimony and i'm sure God will use her to help others. The power of Faith and Prayer. Never give up. With God all things are possible.
