Thought for the Day – 16 October – The Memorial of St Gerard Majella C.Ss.R. (1726-1755)
St Gerard’s Family League
Although his life was short, he managed to achieve great holiness. So numerous were the miracles God worked through him, that even during his lifetime he was called the“ wonder-worker “.
Since his death in 1775, countless favours and miracles have been granted and worked through his intercession. (In this regard, I know personally of a miracle granted by St Gerard’s intercession.)
As well as the patron of a good confession, he has become well known as the patron of mothers and has been invoked as a constant source of help and inspiration to parents.
The League of St Gerard is an association of Christians united in prayer for family life and its Christian values.
The League Prayer is on the site but I copied it here too.
Membership is open to all.
