PRAYER TO SAINT GERARD MAJELLA (For Motherhood)

Dear Redemptorist Saint,
model religious brother,
compassionate toward suffering Mothers,
intercede for this expectant Mother.
Let her not be selfish
like those who are willing to put an end to the life
they bear within themselves.
Instead let her remain ever conscious
that she is privileged to be the instrument
through whom God brings another life into the world.
Encourage her for the good of her child
and the glory of the Lord of life.

Amen.
