Almighty and loving Father,
I thank you for giving St. Gerard to us
as a most appealing model and powerful friend.
By his example,
he showed us how to love and trust You.
You have showered many blessings
on those who call upon him.
For Your greater glory and my welfare,
please grant me the favours
which I ask in his name.
(Mention your needs here...)
And you, my powerful patron,
intercede for me before the throne of God.
Draw near to that throne
and do not leave it until you have been heard.
O good saint,
to you I address my feverent prayers;
graciously accept them
and let me experience in some way
the effects of your powerful intercession.
God of power and mercy, open our hearts in welcome. Remove the things that hinder us from receiving Christ with joy, so that we may share his wisdom and become one with him when he comes in glory, for he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. continue reading
In the centuries old Catholic tradition, holy cards or prayer cards are small, devotional cards for the use of the faithful. Prayer cards have an endless amount of use and make wonderful gifts and keepsakes.
The UN has cut off food aid for an estimated 200,000 Christians in the Middle East. The only way these people will survive is through your generosity.
If you make a single donation now, you will feed a child 30 meals. Naturally, the more you give, the more people you help and save. As Christians we are called to be "Good Samaritans" to our neighbors. Right now, Christian children are fighting cold, fighting hunger, and fighting just to survive.
Knowing this, how can you pass by? Give generously.
