PRAYER TO ST. GERARD FOR A SAFE DELIVERY

 
 
O great Saint Gerard,
beloved servant of Jesus Christ,
perfect imitator of your meek
and humble Savior,
and devoted child of Mother of God,
enkindle within my heart one spark
of that heavenly fire of charity
which glowed in your heart
and made you an angel of love.
 

O glorious Saint Gerard,
because when falsely accused of crime,
you did bear,
like your Divine Master,
without murmur or complaint,
the calumnies of wicked men,
you have been raised up by God
as the patron and protector of expectant mothers.
 
Preserve me from danger
and from the excessive pains accompanying childbirth,
and shield the child which I now carry,
that it may see the light of day
and receive the purifying 
and life-giving waters of baptism
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
 
Amen.
